I Almost Didn’t Live to See 2011.

Most of you will remember yesterday as the last day of 2010 (or some variation thereof), but in my mind, it will forever be thought of as The Day that Erin Tried to Kill Me.

Rather than lying in a pool of my own blood, I ended up lying a pool of my own sweat.

Some of you slept in and relaxed your way into party preparations for the evening; instead, I melted my AZZ off – Wicked Witch of the West style – and crashed for the afternoon before doing the divalicious NYE thang.

The slaughter began with a disgustingly early 7 AM wakeup call and a new energy bar:blog 2096

This Blueberry Blast 3Bar reminded me a lot of a LaraBar in texture and flavor, but slightly bigger. It’s a shame that I find both LaraBars and these 3Bars dry and a bit bland :/

Within two hours, dry didn’t sound like such a bad thing!

This was my first hot yoga class, and I didn’t know quite what to expect. I’m always cold, so at first the ninety degree room felt like a dream…but then I realized that we were expected to move around in said room, and the deliciousness of the heat instantly dissipated.

An hour and a half later, I was the true embodiment of hot mess! I felt a hundred times looser and lighter, though, just as the teacher promised. I felt like I’d sweated out the toxins of 2010 and I left everything that didn’t suit me this year in the studio.

In the name of the new year, I hit the bar – the Whole Foods hot bar, that is – and crashed for a few hours to revive my energy for the real evening ahead…


Happy 2011 all! Hope it’s not too rough of a morning for you all 😉

    I am obsessed with hot yoga (non-bikram, of course). Seriously. I’m starting a month unlimited at a great studio in a couple of days when I return from vacation, and I can’t flippin wait. The first time is rough, but you can sometimes become an addict. Be careful!
