3 more days and it marks living in my new home for a month.
I am liking it so much that I felt like I am on a holiday.
I was living in what they call a matured estate and in my memory, after I turned mid-primary-ish, my brother and me was like the only kids around.
And now, it is young couples everywhere with babies and toddlers. Even teens are a rare sight. My parents are probably also the only very senior folks around.
But it is not like we are very alienated, coz just a little away from us is another original matured estate.
I took the evening shot last night and compared to about 2 months back, a tall white fence had been put up. I am guessing that more residentials are being built, but there are also people saying that that is a new mall/train station coming up.
Now, into the cold, cold season and Yoga.
A few weeks back I decided to stop procrastinating and took out some of my exercise stuff. It is true that once something is in sight, one is more likely to work on them. So only keep what #sparkjoy around.
One night I just asked how can I start Yoga and next thing I know, one friend suggested a perfect Youtube Channel and another also living in Singapore told me about this Yoga group doing free lessons all bcoz the people behind it and really passionate about letting as many people as possible get the wonders of Yoga. ❤
I had a lot of resistance on Yoga in the past. I always thought that I cannot follow something so slow. And I thought I needed something high impact to be really working my body.
Now, Yoga is like the BEST exercise that I ever started!!!
And after every session I just watch everything Okinawa on TV. Makes my Kokoro so happy.
Random food pic. I was around a new Yoshinoya house and this totally got me back to Nihon. ❤ Surely someday! ❤
It hadn’t been raining for nearly a month and when it did, temperature dropped A LOT. At one point I was having 33 degrees in my room.
And so one night I pulled out my old Parka for my night walk. Btw this Parka was actually designed for DAY use. It has UV protection.
It was also so cold, I had hot tea when I came home. It was all only 27 degrees though.
Because why yes… I think I just generally freeze outdoors at night, even when it is 30, 31 degrees. And I got a new mesh hoodie. I always wanted a mesh hoodie. Another best thing is really that I got pockets now. ❤
After while I notice that the sleeves are really long. Are these slots for the thumbs? Or just for more airing? This again is designed for day use, has UV protection too.
Now the coolest thing. My persistence on working out and keeping my diet reasonable is helping me lose all the weight. Look how loose my pants became!
They were quite fitting at first!! I am just so happy!
And I found out recently that Decathlon has their own Yoga group. This beautiful shape is from their logo. The above is one of their Yoga pants. BEST PANTS IN THE UNIVERSE.
For more knee cushioning. Check this out Chu!! ❤
And I got a Yoga Block! (Skipping rope for days at the garden outdoor gym.) Wooo, me so serious into this. I thought a solid one for support will be good until, I am pretty good with no block support and instead I use the block for legs lifting. And this solid block can get heavy.
But it is quite fascinating, I only see cork material in bottles and this is the first time I see and feel such a HUGE block of it.
I have been eating fruits for supper. So healthy. ❤
The cute thing about this is, I learn that there are just so many little new things to learn and explore and get curious about every time I get into something new.
I did this but after a while it get uncomfortable to lie on them.
I thought the side pony tail will do the job but it gets in the way sometimes. this is also my skinny top. Each time I wear it, people all commented that I look thinner.
Finally today I tied a higher side bun. Works better.
