15lbs...3weeks, Day 7

After yesterday’s rest I was back in the game today and hit the ground running. Woke up this morning to attend a 90min Bikram Yoga class. I love Bikram Yoga because it gives me a chance to meditate. In today’s hectic world and fast paced lifestyle meditation keeps me sane. It takes ...
