Yoga at Y2Yoga was incredible. I am making the commitment to go to hot yoga once a week! It’s just that good – for every inch of me.
Y2Yoga‘s studio is much closer to my house, and I really loved the feel. Totally modern and hip, and it had that zen feeling. Kelsey and I did a 90 minute hot vinyasa class led by Tanner. I was dripping and shaking at the end, per usual. I loved how intimate the studio was – from the small room to the personal attention I got from Tanner. Details such as the lighting on dimmers and the MUSIC (!!) made it extra fun. As we were laying in savasana, I was wishin’ and hopin’ and prayin’ that I would be presented with a lavender-infused cool towel on my forehead since that is my very favorite part of going to a hot yoga class.
And a moment later – there it was!! Best moment of the day.
And as if the towel wasn’t enough, I got a quick foot massage during savasana too!!
I’ll definitely be going back to Y2Y
I molted during class. Literally – my skin was peeling off!! – but also metaphorically. I just started a new year of life and made a few new year’s resolutions as I flowed. I reflected on year 26 and how I approached my healthy habits. During the past year I’ve really embraced intuitive eating. I eat whatever I want. That includes both sides of the spectrum – salads and oatmeal and beer and chocolate. I love exercise as much as I love frosting. I make choices based on how things will make me feel. I try to live with no regrets.
However, I feel like there is still a piece missing to the puzzle. As evident from both my clothing and my reflection in the mirror, I’ve put somewhere between 3 and 10 pounds. I’ve asked myself is it worth it to be able to eat whatever I want and be a little heavier. The answer> is yes, it is. But on the other hand, it would be so easy to just tone down the partying a little and molt out of those party pounds. I’m not unhappy with my body, but I’m not as happy as I used to be.
I have no plan for changing anything moving forward to year 27. I’m just going to go with the flow with the mindset of living lighter. If anything I just need to drink less alcohol and keep my hand out of my dark chocolate drawer. And not have a birthday for another year 😉
Lunch today was a mosh of leftovers –
Spaghetti Squash + Sauce plus Broccoli + Spinach
Topped with some parrano cheese and red pepper flakes
Hot tea season is here!
Love the statement that this big bowl makes!! The set-up from Dr. McDougal’s is so pretty. Perhaps I’ll try another soup tomorrow!

Gotta get crankin’!
