As I alluded to in my previous post, yoga has been helping me shed some extra grad-school pounds before the wedding. I’ve been saying for a while, a year maybe, that it was time to get into shape for the wedding. I had a plan of starting early, being in great shape, and just staying in good shape for the wedding, rather than trying to drop a bunch of weight just before the wedding. Of course, life got in the way, I started a new, more stressful job, and I had a brutal semester of school that caused me to pretty much live at school and work for the entire fall semester.
By the end of that semester, my stress-and-convenience eating was out of control, and to boot, I had been too busy to make my yoga classes more often than not. I was a mess, and I felt awful. I was at my heaviest point of life, which wouldn’t bother me if I wasn’t so out of shape, but I was unnecessarily heavy.
That was pretty much how I felt. Sorry for the awkward toe pic—I don’t like feet. / Image via livescience
