Yoga, Eats, and Fashion

By Gothextramile @thextramile

Hey everyone!

I feel like I haven’t posted in years but it has only been since yesterday morning. I’ll use today’s post to catch up on what I haven’t shared with you all the past couple of days.

Tuesday night I did something new to me. Bikram Yoga. For those of you who have no idea what it is, basically it is yoga that goes through 26 “bikram poses” in a HOT room. I mean hot people, as in over 100 degrees hot. You can read more about it here.

I’ve been dying to try it and have heard of all the benefits and how great it is. I have seen it on Clare’s blog many times and it has sparked my interest.

Turns out there is a studio near my house so I went and they had a great beginners special. I paid for my first class and then ended up deciding that it was worth it to buy the special. Two weeks unlimited yoga for only $50. Not to shabby!

I am going to take bikram about 3 times a week for the next two weeks. I know they say you need to take it a lot more in order to get the “full benefits” but for now that is fine with me. In between days, I am going to do my usual weights + a bit of cardio session. I love my longer runs on Tues and Thurs normally, but I want a change and a challenge! So I will get back to that in two weeks!!

I don’t want to go too into detail because I want to write a recap post about my final thoughts on the class. In that post I will go into detail about how I felt, if I love it or hate it, etc.

I’ll give you guys a hint though: I survived and have gone more than once so far

This is post first bikram session. I honestly felt a little drunk and probably look it in this picture. That’s all for now I just wanted to give you all a sneak peak;)

Here are a few of my eats from the past couple of days. Honestly, very repetitive but some of you may want to see so here ya go.

012
 Oats concoction #1: Peaches, prunes, cottage cheese, banana, PB. Simple enough.

026

Oats concoction #2: Chia seeds, pumpkin, banana, PB. Lighting from my desk lamp is no bueno. That’s what happens when you have to wake up at the butt crack of dawn.

021

Tomatoes and goat cheese = win. I could’ve had like 7x that broccoli but I had to share :/

What a pretty color

:)
Mango, raspberries, pineapple, protein.

That’s it! On another note, someone mentioned if I ever though about posting fashion and what I am wearing.

I won’t go as far into making a whole page right now but it definitely is something I have thought about. I figured for now I can show you all stuff I am wearing if I am not in my usual gym attire

;)
Hey, sometimes you just need to scrub and be comfy. But trust me, I’m all about getting dressed up and looking halfway decent cute.

So… here is an outfit from this week! Nothing special.

015

Top is a bit see through from Forever 21, I wore a bando underneath, jeans, shoes from payless I think! They have some cute stuff in there sometimes:) Watch from NY & Company, rings, and bag from Nordstrom.

My hair is all nat-ur-al. Way too lazy to straighten it. This picture is SO much better than the first one. Ha! Crazy what make-up can do for us girls

Winking smile

Have you ever tried Bikram? Love it or hate it?

If you had to pick ONE, would you dress for comfort or style?

This is really random but:
