Lately…

I’ve been getting my sweat on at bikram yoga. There’s nothing that beats that endorphin rush; sweat dripping down your entire body while deepending your flexibility, gaining strength, and being in a room full of half naked people.
I think the last time I produced that much sweat was in gr.11 basketball. Good times.

I can reach my head to the floor in the inverted V pose!

I bought a much needed umbrella for the downpours of rain lately, what is it March? I hope the sun shines through today.
I like roaming about the streets, shopping about and exploring the neighborhoods. Even though I am alone, I realize I am okay. I don’t need to have a million friends, just a few that I will meet up with on occasion.I’ve even dined out alone, and enjoyed it!  The restaurant/cafe’s I’ve been too have always had at least one other person dining alone, so I see it’s totally normal. The other day I had the best veggie burger ever, and the room had 4 tables seated for 1, and two tables for 2+.

And lastly, to end this random post i’ll let you know who I’ve been listening too

Mother Mother. Heard of them? There a great indie band.
& also, Hey Ocean. Great mellow tunes.
Cause music really does heal the soul.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

  1. I have wanted to try Bikram yoga but am a little hesitant about whether it would be too intense for me. It sounds like something I would love though!

  2. I’ve never heard of either of these bands, so I casually just youtubed them as you do. 🙂 I really really like hey ocean. 😀 I shall be listening to them more, thank you.
    I’ve never heard of Bikram let alone tried it, I dont think anywhere where I live does it, which is a shame because it sounds really fun. 😀

    I hope you are having a lovely Sunday. xx

  3. Coffee shops are the only places I have “dined” alone. Not sure that counts?
    I like older music, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, anything involving Eric Clapton… I shall youtube Hey Ocean (love the name!)

    Hope you have a great week! 🙂

  4. I’ve never dined alone, but I’m sure I will in the future. I’m glad you’re enjoying Bikram. I’ve never tried it, but I hear so many good things about it I think I have to. And my favorite music is a whole bunch of stuff. Pop and J-Pop mainly. I like Japanese music.

  5. Especially during lunchtime I see people eating alone. I’ve always sort of liked the idea. Time to think and eat in a new atmosphere without the distractions of home. It seems like dining out with a nice book would be lovely too.

    I’d never heard of bikram yoga till I read your post. It sounds interesting maybe I’ll try to find a class or DVD and try it. Still I’m more of a Pilates girl.

    As for music I love to listen to Yiruma and currently “A day WIthout rain” by Enya is a favorite. Listen to the lyrics if you get a chance to look it up!

    What do veggie burgers taste like??

    • Those songs are so pretty! But, the ones i searched did not have lyrics…
      Veggie burgers can have a variety of tastes, some are more tofu based while others bean/veggie, i prefer the bean and veggie ones and they’re good with nuts and seeds too.

      • Ooops! Silly me, I gave you the album title. It is actually called Only Time.

        Tofu doesn’t sound appealing, but I think I might try the bean and veggie type of burger. Hope I like the taste too! : )

        O, and I looked up bikram on youtube and got to try some poses. I think I might start to like it. I might like simply yoga too. The stretching feels wonderful. Although, I don’t like the spiritual part that’s sometimes involved >_<.

  6. I am proud of you for pushing yourself to dine out at a restaurant. It is so important to learn to be comfortable alone, learning to trust ourselves.

    I am sorry I missed your last post. Anorexia is a devil, but you can beat it. A meal below 300 calories is not a meal belonging to a healthy person, the one YOU want to be. 300 calories is risking your own health and life. I know you don’t want that, even though it can be difficult to know what we want when anorexia screams so loudly.
    You’ve done it before, you have fought through changes. Yes, it was a hospital, but it was still you who did it. You ate the food. Ask yourself why you did that? Was it because a part of you do want to live and be free? Get back to this attitude, this belief in yourself and your desire to recover. Less food weakens our minds ability to think rationally, strengthening the power of ED. Food is our weapon against what is trying to destroy us my friend.

    Know that you can allways contact me, ok? I don’t want you to be a prisoner of ED, because you deserve so much better. You are a beautiful spirit and I believe you are strong enough to once again start eating what you need to survive.
