Yoga FLAME/SHAME(?) nah.

Yesterday, I attended my first yoga-class. (First in about 10 years.) the teacher said we were not allowed to drink any water during. I wasn’t happy about that and considered walking out.

Fat is Fat, let’s be factual.

Stretchmarks ๐Ÿ˜’ Love

Over the years I’ve noticed stretchmarks appearing all over my body.
