I just had this reality fact from some photos taken couple of days ago that I was gaining some more unnecessary weight. ugh. Yes, I did quit my gym membership since December. And plan to have jogging every morning was still out of the picture due to this never ending rainy season.

There is something wrong with you, if you do not like spa. The idea of being massaged with fragrance oil, scrubbed with lotion, steamed, bathed are deliriously good, very good.

Instead, she asked us to stay at chaturanga pose and lift our legs, one by one. My arms literally were shaking! Especially after having Body Pump classes on last Monday and Tuesday.  And as if they were not crazy enough for me. She started to go wild and changed the normal plank into side plank. Dang!
