I just saw your yoga-related response and wanted to give you a heads up to Bikram yoga if you're up for more of a challenge. It's done in a hot room for 90 minutes (so you sweat a lot more) but you can burn about 900 calories per session! It is definitely more of an intense workout than other types of yoga. I've been doing it since August and I've noticed a huge difference in my flexibility, balance, overall muscle tone, and mental health. Just wanted to put it out there -- if you're skeptical about yoga, you won't be after going to a few Bikram classes! Congrats on your weight loss so far :)

Yes, I’ve heard of this - my roommates used to do it. I like the sound of “burning 900 calories a session,” but I felt my lazy tendencies start to kick in when I read, “challenge.”

Sadly, I can’t see myself doing hot yoga purely because I can’t even last 5 minutes in a sauna, but I thought I’d post your question in-case others are interested :)

Perhaps one day I’ll venture to a class, at which point I’ll obvy blog about it. obvy.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I am one lucky lady!

The tumblr gods must have been shining down on me, because for some reason my tumblr is up and running! And as I have no friends at work (true story) I’ll take my lunch hour to answer your questions.

Oh what a happy Feels-Like-Monday-But-Yay-Its-Tuesday Day!

Figured I’d post my side profile, to (1) give you a sense of my stomach bulge (note: I’m sucking in here) and (2) because hopefully this photo will one day act as a nice ‘before’ photo.

That’s right, i believe in myself now! Insert self high-five here.

Also, OMIGOSH remember that time it was 2:15am and I have to be at work at 8am? GASP. I’m a fool…  a tired fool. Night! xo

Me dancing the night away…

Two things to note here: See those beads? I just counted and I ended the night with 24 of them. Also, that manly hand is just that, a guy’s hand, not mine.

~ Valentines Day ~

I went healthy eating at it on Sunday too.  Apparently I’ve decided to not fake a diet this time around…

(spinach leaves, sauteed chicken, onions and mushrooms, avocado, tomatoes)

~ Valentines Day ~

Sunday was filled with productivity, which made the day (oddly ) seem really long.  I ‘slept in’ until 9:30am (stupid internal clock) and then WENT FOR A RUN OUTSIDE, OMIGOD, WHOA.

I went 4k at it, but it was AWESOME, and made me sad I hadn’t been running outside throughout the whole winter.  There was something really satisfying about running in the cold, I felt a sense of accomplishment I hadn’t felt in a long time.  The run itself was great (I didn’t stop except at red lights), and it gave me great hope that I may actually defy the rules of life and be able to run the FULL marathon later this year in October.

~ Saturday ~

Saturday was a peaceful day, filled with healthy eating, Lost watching, napping, the gym, reading, watching the Olympics and seeing my sister.

It was pretty much a perfect lazy day.

The Photos:

  1. I met my gym’s manager in the morning and he recommended this type of oatmeal to me, which is what I’ll switch to once my delicious flavoured oatmeal is finished.
  2. My Brunch: Asparagus and an omelet with mushrooms, onions, olives and salsa in it
  3. I added cinnamon to my plain yogurt. It was a delicious treat. I also bought coco powder to add to my plain yogurt.
  4. I went to one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants for dinner (called Fresh) with my sister, where I ordered this delicious, “High Protein Salad”
  5. My sister walking back to my place with me

Sorry guys, I’ll answer more questions tomorrow :)

~ Friday Night ~

Friday night I got all dolled up for my date with Shy Boy (I was supposed to meet him right after work, but he had to work late so I met him in the evening).  The night was a lot of fun. Shy Boy came over to my place around 7pm and we stood around and debated what to eat for a while before deciding on heading down a few floors, to our mutual friend’s place, to order dinner (eeek, I ate pizza!), get high and watch the opening ceremonies (which ps were amazing/hilarious high).

I wasn’t sure if I felt anything towards Shy Boy, more than a friendship connection, as we weren’t really ever alone, and I was incredibly high… exhibit A:

E - “who’s Donald Sutherland?!”
Shy Boy - “he’s that old guy carrying the flag.”
E - “a lot of people are tweeting about him…is he dead?”

.

Exhibit B? I was convinced that Pamela Anderson (of Canadian Fame) would be the final torchbearer in all her glory (red bathing suit, slow motion, hair in the wind ect).

Overall I had a lot of fun with Shy Boy AND our other friends, which gave me hope stronger feelings could develop…

We ended the night nonchalantly as I passed out and he left with some of our other friends.

Have you been to fatty.tumblr.com recently?????
Anonymous

Well…. that was certainly NOT pleasant.

OneTwentyFive’s original name was fat.tumblr.com NOT ‘fatty,’ woops, my bad.  I remember going to that site, way-back-when (See post about it here) and being shocked and appalled as my eyes were raped with images I had no desire to see. (Although, all the power to those woman, as I? I could NEVER pose naked, esp. over weight).
