at the close of a very boring work day  
I have this unfortunate habit of avoiding my journal when I have unfinished fic prompts to write. Especially really good ones that I plan to finish this lovely holiday weekend. This post is me NOT doing that again.

So I'm doing yoga now. Correction, I'm doing a few yoga poses in the morning and wishing I could afford to take an actual class. I'm liking it so far. I've also started cooking again, for real this time, and slowly discovering how relaxing it can be after a long day at work.

I'm guess I'm kinda in a self-improvement stage that I hope will finally take this time. :/

while i can wait infinitely for my prompt to be filled, i'm happy to hear you're still working on them :)

gl with the yoga! i did bikram for while, but it just didn't agree with me. i found myself focusing way too much on how inflexible i am rather than being able to block everything out. i do want to try pilates, though. and i've been wanting to try spinning forever.

i think i only enjoy cooking for others. the whole cooking for a party of 1 thing is just not something i can discipline myself to do on a regular basis. thank goodness ny has amazing food in vast quantities, or else i would starve.

Your prompt is one of my favorites, I'm hoping to get to it by Monday. :D

I don't feel like I'm actually doing yoga yet, just a few things to make me no so embarrased about find a cheap class somewhere. Pilates scares me a bit, it seems so intense. But the results I've seen on other people are amazing, I'd be really interested to hear about your experiance if and when you try it.

I was in NY recently, and I feel you about the great food there. I'm not sure I'd cook at all in your shoes tbh.

gotta start somewhere. it's great that you're at least stretching every day (read your other comments). i should be doing that. i'm not an exerciser at all, so the extreme/intense stuff always appeals to me, lol. it takes something crazy and/or exhausting for me to actively go to a place and build up a sweat.

yeeeaaaah, i pretty much don't. lol. part of the reason i'm perpetually broke!
