I originally created this blog to track my emotions and thoughts of when I first started Bikram yoga. 2 years later, I'm now a Bikram yoga teachin', crossfit trainin', Paleo eatin' guy.
These are my thoughts, feelings and stories about the world around me. Enjoy
Crossfit in the AM and Bikram in the evening. Felt like I was back at training again. <3

It’s done! It’s over! I did it!
I did a 30 day Paleo challenge bitches.
I feel great.
I finished right before my 26th birthday and decided to splurge right after completing it After successfully puking by drinking too much along with a massive tasty-treat collection; I find the best thing to do now is to go back on it.
My body didn’t realize how amazing it was for it until I was off Paleo. I had a soda over the weekend and instantly I got hear burn. I had bread, and i felt bloated and well, more heart burn. The dairy caused an explosion in the bathroom as well as killing all the flowers my parents had around the house.
I can’t believe I used to eat like that. On my birthday, I sat at my work desk popping Tums like they were candies, trying to keep the acid down from all the shat I consumed that weekend.
I don’t want to pressure myself into doing another paleo challenge, but I need to find a way to incorporate Paleo into my diet 80% - 90% of the time. I need to make it my lifestyle. My body really thanked me for it.
My skin cleared up. I had more energy throughout the day, it was good all around. My mood was better. Crossfit was improving, so was my yoga practice. I think the most important part of it all was the clarity I had. My mind was so unbelievably foggy when I ate crap food. I could barely get up and do anything. With the Paleo, I wish I could explain it, people who have done it may understand what I’m talking about. You’re mind isn’t hazy, you’re able to make clear and concise thoughts.
In the mean time, we’ll see what happens :). Yay life. Yay taking a risk and trying something that I’ve been on the fence for long on. This is what happens when you make a decision and stick to it, dedicate your time and efforts it pays off. It really does.
