Yoga Yoga Yoga

So, it's been a while since I wrote anything and I promised myself I'd start doing this properly so here's an update of everything that's been going on since I dropped out of college to pursue my modelling ambition (couldn't think of a better way to put that, I'm going to sound like a twat regardless unless you know me).

Something that was recommended to me by my agents is Bikram Yoga, it has changed my life.

For those of you who don't have a clue, it consists of doing 26 postures (intense stretches) twice each in a room heated to 40 degrees. 2 breathing exercises also form part of each class which lasts 90 minutes.

At first I must admit I was unimpressed by the idea of committing 90mins of my life 3 - 5 times a week in order to be trapped in what feels like a sauna with a bunch f yummy mummies and freakishly stretchy yoga buffs.

Having said this, rather than being somewhat disappointed in what I felt was basically exercise for people who don't exercise I was surprised and frustrated to find that my first class was extremely challenging.

Not only did I feel dizzy and nauseous for the first time in my life during exercise but these so called 'stretches' were extremely reliant on core strength, flexibility and balance (have a go at the picture above why don't you).

I'm about 2 months in and I can honestly say that although I dread going to class, I am fitter, more toned and more flexible than I ever have been. Thanks to Bikram Yoga I have realized my body's full potential.

I thoroughly recommend trying it to anyone who hasn't, it's a good release for stress and a brilliant way t lose weight and tone up.

I feel like sometimes life gets harder when you love someone. Not because you have to work at it but because you pour so much of your energy into loving that person, you worry about them because you care, you want to be the best version of you you can be and you want to be there for them.

I find it difficult sometimes to contain my emotions, he probably thinks i'm crazy and i don't blame him but it's good to know that that's part of the reason he loves me back.

Love definitely makes people a bit crazy and in some ways it does make life harder but it also makes everything so much better.

I wouldn't change it for anything.
