Weight: 202.0

Stuck at 202lbs. It's okay and it's been a few days so I hope to see a loss in the next day or two.

Bikram yoga challenge day 25! Wow!!!

V asked me if I was going to continue going every day after the challenge is over. I won't, it's too much time and commitment. I will aim for 4 times a week after the challenge. When I can, I will go 5, when I can't I will make sure I don't ever go less than 3. According to my instructors, 3 times is the least we should go to keep the practice and 4 or 5 would be ideal. So this is what I am shooting for. 

Talked to my new guy last night through skype as he is in Long Island for work. I will have family in town this weekend when he gets back (and it's wayyyy too early for him to meet them) but we will go out early next week to celebrate the end of my challenge :).

B: yogurt, granola. strawberries 350

L: ahi tuna 150 mashed potatoes 200 edamame radishes salad 150 - 500

Progress as of today: 15.5 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

25 is something to be proud of AND 4/7 days a week is still a lot!!! Ooooooo I'm from Long Island!! Ha. Have a good day!!

Bikram yoga 30 day challenge: day 24!   I am getting there! Woohoo! So excited this is going well!

No move on the scale in the past few days, but that's fine. I am sure it's a combo of normalcy (you're not supposed to lose weight everyday haha) with the fact I have been eating out all weekend! Back to eating at home today and hoping to lose another pound by the time my sister and family get here on wed night!

B: greek yogurt with tea spoon of honey 150

Less than a week before you complete you challenge! Wonderful!

 Okay I thought the 199.8 was a little crazy as you cant lose 2 lbs in a day! So I am at 202 now, which is totally fine and my goal is to get to 200 this week. :)

Bikram Yoga Chalenge day 23! Wow, getting there!

My date last night was just wonderful. The guy is perfect, I am looking for flaws but can't find any yet, other than a weird fingernail he has. Haha. He's attentive, tells it like it is, calls me exactly when he says he will call, smart, funny, sweet, hugs me and hold my hand in public, has his own company, good hair and we just get along perfect. He's traveling a lot for work though, so I don't know when I will see him next, probably not till next sunday or the week after. We will see.

Had a big brunch, nothing earlier and probably will just have a snack after yoga. I can't eat anything 3-4 hours before yoga because you have to practice with an empty belly. So that changes a little my snacks and dinner. 

B: brace yourselves: waffles with syrup and strawberries (half) 500 egg whites with crawfish biscuit potatoes and a little catchup 800 - 1300 (I actually have no idea how many calories, but this is a guess, may be less even).

Good for you finding a great guy!!

V on 02/19/2012:
I usually workout on an empty tummy for my AM classes..Nothing wrong with getting your main meal in at brunch, it sounds really yummy! It also sounds like you have a keeper on your hands :) He sounds like he knows what he wants and might i add he has really good taste if he is into YOU :) Have a good evening!

hollybelle on 02/20/2012:
I had a big breakfast yesterday too and I really enjoyed it! Back to the plan today, though. The new guy sounds good. Keep us posted. I am all for love these days!

I couldn't believe the scale this morning. I weighted myself 3 times to be sure! Of course i am following a very healthy and low calorie and fat diet, but still, this is crazy and it has to be because of the yoga! I mean, I even had a big bagel and some fries yesterday. :)

And it's Friday. How much happier could I be!!!

Congrats!! Well done!!

I shouldn't have had treats though as I've got many treats coming up - 2 days at friends, 10 days in Morocco. But I did enjoy the chocolate puddings with lots of chocolate chips! YUM!

Umpqua on 02/17/2012:
Excellent job, congrats!!

Congratulations Grumpy!!

Enjoy your weekend!!!

hollybelle on 02/17/2012:
YES! It's amazing how much volume we can eat when it''s vegetables. I am trying really really hard to keep a lot of good vegetables on hand and not go to those calorie dense carbs and treats! I haven't been able to exercise this week due to my sinus infection/cold hanging on, but I am not discouraged. I'll get back into it. GREAT going on the 21 days ! Only 9 more until you will have 30 days in a row! Awwesome!

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 :)

sweetpea1977 on 02/14/2012:
Look at you go!

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!
