currently, my legs are on fire.  thighs are crying and my hamstrings sore.  my upper body is also sore from yesterday's session with sam.  

for three months now, i have been practising ashtanga yoga.  back home, i really wanted to try yoga but it was always expensive.  now that i have the means and the time to practice it, there was no excuse for me not to immerse myself into the wonderful world of ashtanga.

there are days when i just could not complete a pose.  still catching my breath especially with the surya namaskara b.  but i am getting there.  i see some changes.

likewise, it will be a year in a few weeks time since i started going to the gym.  from not being able to lift a 20-kg bar to doing dead lifts, bench press and squats, changes can be seen from my body.

initially, i just wanted to look good.  to attract people.  however, my motivation now is to be healthy, calm and at peace with who i am.

as i have said to a friend, my happiness and worth do not depend on other people.
