Bikram Yoga Challenge Day 18.

Happy Valentine's Day girls!!!!

I really need a massage! Haha. But I am trying to find time, as I have yoga every night and have to exercise my dog at lunch time. I will try today, since she is going to doggie day care. Haha. 

Okay, massage booked for lunch time!! :)

So, I've been losing weight fast this week, but also my calories yesterday were too low. Not complaining.. haha. But that's definitely not the way to go more than one day here and there since I am exercising a lot. I need more calories in general. 

Also, I met a guy. Our first date was at the dog park on Sunday, that turned into dropping our exhausted pups at his house (was closer to the park) and going to a very cute french restaurant. I like him a lot. Our next date is saturday, we're going to a burlesque show that some girls I know are in. That will be really cool at a venue called The Moulin Rouge that is inside of an antique store in Atlanta. Really looking forward to it and wanna dress up and look nice. Wish me luck, he seems like a good one. :)

B: yogurt parfait and 1 heart shaped cookie 400

S: banana 100

L: hearty baked chicken sandwich 700

legcramps on 02/14/2012:
Yes, you deserve a good massage after all the days of yoga you've put in! And look how it's paying off! Good for you :)

Good luck on your date! :)

V on 02/14/2012:
Aww :) Good luck on the date, i am sure you will dazzle him <3

moogy on 02/14/2012:
I am glad that you are doing so well. I hope you enjoyed your massage. Well done on sticking with the yoga:)

Umpqua on 02/15/2012:
RE the spinach muffins, I got the recipe from V. Ask her because she modified it and made a frittata out of it which I think came out even better than the muffins. I hope you have a nice date, sounds fun!

Maria7 on 02/15/2012:
Congratulations to you on your new lower number! Yayyyy! Happy for ya! :-)

Heck yea. I feel like all the hard work is finally paying off! This girl I met at Bikram Yoga said when she did the challenge she lost 20 lbs. She was bigger than me and I thought that was too much, but I was not seeing much loss, now I am! Maybe it's all showing this week! Yay!

 Yay, I'm down today. Eating at home and less calories certainly worked. I think I was making too many exceptions, eating out and losing track a little. :)

Bikram Yoga 30 day Challenge Day 13!

Last night class was challenging. The heat was getting to me, which is funny since it was 105 degrees and the night before it was 107 and I was completely fine. And I drank the same amount of water both days. Our body is different every day! Funny!

Good job! I know how those exceptions can silently add up! That's great that you are keeping up with the challenge. Stay hydrated plus more. Have a nice evening.

Bikram Yoga 30 Day Challenge day 11!!!

Sooo last night after I posted I had a mini binge, had a bowl of milk and cereal and a couple cereal bars. I probably had another 500 calories. I was expecting higher weight this morning, but no. Exactly 209.4 like yesterday. Go figure.

I planned my menus for today and tomorrow, that way I eat at home and eat lighter, and also i don't let my veggies go bad at home. Win win.

Bikram yoga is going great. Yesterday was my 10th class in a row and I am loving it. It was my best class yet and I saw progress. The heat is not a big deal for me anymore. I am very happy with it!

dang 11 days in a row is awesome!! be proud of yourself!

hollybelle on 02/07/2012:
10 in a row - wonderful! I think although it might take getting used to, I would like the hot yoga. Especially here in KY in the winter so that my muscles would stay warm and plyable as possible!

 Alright, I posted the new weight and won't think much about it. It has to come down at some point, it's odd to be 3lbs up when all I have been doing is exercising and eating less than I burn. It will get better.


Bikram Yoga Challenge Day 10. Yay!

Going to a 6:30 class today. Feel great about it, but my body is a little sore. Since I went in the morning yesterday by this evening I have a bit of a longer break than only 24 hours. :)

V on 02/06/2012:
Wow that is strange, maybe you need new batteries in your scale? Are you expecting TOM soon?? Anyhoo give it a couple of days or perhaps weigh yourself at the gym

supercheese on 02/06/2012:
I agree with V. It may be TOM? usually happens to me...

liza36 on 02/06/2012:
I'm sure the scale will reflect all your good work soon!

grannyannie on 02/06/2012:
You will lose, just have faith.

WII on 02/06/2012:
It will all work out, you are doing great!

Maria7 on 02/06/2012:
Hang in there! It may be muscle weight.

hollybelle on 02/07/2012:
Yeah, don't think too much about it - it's pay off!
