Editing my Tumblr while watching Game of Thrones.
Cool life. I cannot get enough of this show. I just ordered the books!
That was the “theme” of my class last night. Turns out, this new teacher will be teaching it once a week annnd it’s an advanced vinyasa class. Most importantly, I kept up. Surprise, advanced class! What? I could actually keep up (even though, my flow wasn’t that graceful)?! The class was about 80 minutes… and heated / humidified to 100 degrees. We started off in a...
Second Day in a Row...
… I’ve woken up bloated and cramp-ridden, too late to work out, yet ready (dressed) to run. I really have to make an effort to take a long lunch for yoga AND run after my Happy Hour plans. (This means… I better hold myself to only one glass of wine.) Also, I weighed myself today since I missed yesterday’s Wednesday weigh-in. Up 0.8 lbs… -_-. I thought I’d at...

Trying out this new themed classed tonight. It’s 60 minutes of heated power vinyasa and 30 minutes of restorative yoga? I’m unsure of how it all fits together but I’m excited to try something new (plus, this new male teacher is super energetic and smiley)!
I was supposed to go on a run this morning and do my weekly weigh in. It would have been a lovely, sunny yet cool morning. I woke up doubled over in cramps and exhausted so… I slept in WAY too late. I woke up feeling bloated and groggy so I’ll do the weigh in when I feel like my body isn’t trying to hold onto every ounce of water it can. I feel okay about all this though. Even if...

INTAKE: protein shake peanut bar arugula salad with canned tuna, protein powder in water, two chocolates edamame, tuna roll, escolar, salmon sashimi, cocktail +1600 OUTTAKE power vinyasa yoga -400 Net: 1200 I need to shift my eating habits away from my biggest meal being my last. Three hours later and I’m still full. No bueno. The sushi was SO GOOD though! So good.
I went to power hot Vinyasa on my lunch break (it was a really long break) so I can go out to sushi later guilt free. But then I got a huge endorphin kick as well! I may not be where I want but I’ve come so far. I’ve gone from barely touching my toes to palming the ground. I can keep up with flows now I think I have leaner arms! I definitely have leaner thighs. SO close until my skinny...

My friends are dragging me out to eat...
… to this cheap Mexican place. Anyone know of something somewhat healthy to order? I’ve done well today otherwise, might as well keep up the momentum! Annnd, I keep noticing my thighs are looking leaner. Now, if only the belly fat would go away.
I stuck to the plan I made for myself for today.
Well, except I rolled out of bed at 6:15 AM instead of 6:00 AM but STILL, I got to work on time. Drank half of my banana / peach / greek yogurt smoothie to fuel my “run” (Day 3, Week 1 of Couch to 5K). Distance: 2.7 miles Walk Pace: 12:53 mi Run Pace: 9:01 Is it difficult for anyone else to walk the entire cool down? (I get bored.) My 15 Workout (15 squats to 15 pushups to 15 sit...
If I plan, I stick to it.
So, I made myself a plan for tomorrow. Wake up at 6 AM and drink half of the smoothie I just made to save time (one banana, one peach, peach greek yogurt, milk, and water). My 15 squats, 15 push ups, 15 sit ups work out for time. (Then you do 14 of each and then 13… etc.) Week 1, Day 3 of Couch to 5 K. Shower Work Snack, Lunch including salad and protein, Snack Cocktail...
MUSCLE vs FAT
teeny-tinythighs: “Muscle weighs more than fat.” No it doesn’t. One pound of fat weighs the same as one pound of muscle, it’s one pound. The difference is muscle is leaner and takes up less space.
This weekend was out of control. I knew I would splurge a little but oh man… so much alcohol was consumed. I made myself go to yoga and run though. It could have been a lot worse. I’m not too excited for work this week BUT it’ll be so nice to be back on a regular schedule today… even though I’m supposed to go to a cocktail party tomorrow night… *sigh*
