There is only one page left to write on. I will fill it with words of only one syllable:
I love. I have loved. I will love.

It took me a long time to realize this:

i typically run 5 or 6 times a week (current mileage is ~25-32 miles per week as i’m somewhat following the nike training plan for my half marathon in april)
and i do at least a short, 5-10 minute stretch out every day. it’s just become a regular part of my morning, usually while i’m waiting for my water to boil for tea/coffee. then i usually stretch out/do a little yoga after my run. if i want to practice inversions, i’ll go down to the squash courts in the gym after i run (that’s where i film my flowtunes if you follow on instagram!)
I’m actually going to be posting an in-depth review of my Manduka mat tonight! :) it’ll be up soon!
thank you so much!! <3 hope you’re having a lovely day!
put my hands on the ground and kicked my feet into the air, haha. I’ve been handstanding for a long time, mostly since I’m so klutzy in everyday life that I’ve lost most of the general fear of hurting myself? or something? go near a wall to start and/or have someone spot you!
all body weight exercises. planks, handstands, push-ups, sit ups, yoga. I just lift myself a lot on a daily basis. and so much core strength can be developed in yoga! especially vinyasa flow, but even holding lunges and other standing positions requires a lot of muscle strength.
hahaha that’s basically how it’s gonna go until I get somewhere warm! it’s making me long for summer so badly!
thank you! I do have some before and afters but I don’t post them because I don’t want them getting reblogged and whatnot. if you come off anon I’d be happy to share them privately with you though! :)
thank you! it’s from San Lorenzo bikinis! I won their Facebook contest :) I’ve been wanting one of their suits foreverrr.
I don’t usually eat after dinner (I eat pretty late, around 7:30/8), I’ll have a cup of herbal chai with almond milk and honey if I’m craving something sweet!
during the day I like to snack on apples with nut butters, yogurt with honey, raisins, dark chocolate, and bananas!
just ran 6 miles at a 7:30-7:46 pace and can’t remember the last time I felt more beastly (or more babely).
