Bikram Yoga 30 day Challenge, Day 5:


B: oatmeal and bluererries 200

L: chicken 250 in tomato sauce 60, onions and veggies 100 cous cous 170 - 580

S: yogurt, strawberries and granola 350

S: banana 100

Subtotal: 1030

D: small cereal bar 90

T: 1120

 Another thing I haven't mentioned, every time I take bikram classes, which is every day now, I have to drink a gallon or more of water, because you sweat a lot and if not, i'd get a headache of dehydration, so I've been drinks tons of water every day. 


Class 5: AMAZING!!!

I feel amazing. This was my best class yet. I was able to do many postures all the way, that I usually stop somewhere in the process and just stopped and rested once. Usually it's 3 or 4 times. I feel stronger, more balanced, more centered. I don't feel any extra fatigue from going 5 days in a row. I feel like the class itself is what the challenge is. And it's less of a challenge everyday.

I am very very happy. 

However, I am busier and have less time for everything. So I haven't been commenting much on your diaries. Bare with me. I love you all and am cheering for your success! xo

Progress as of today: 10.1 lbs lost so far, only 17.4 lbs to go!

It's great you are seeing benefits from the yoga already - increased water and sleep! Have a good one.

glycrina on 02/01/2012:
but what are doing? still partying like the old days? I missed you so much. So happy to see you back here. I know I said that already but I thought you should hear it again. You are so cool.

Hey I hope ya had a good day:)

hollybelle on 02/01/2012:
Oh yes, hydration! Very important. Yoga is very challenging for me. My daughter is great at it. She does Piyo, though, not straight yoga.

 A little lower today. :) And the good thing about the yoga is that my water intake is a gallon a day or more. Also, I noticed last night I slept better. :)


Bikram Yoga 30 day Challenge, Day 4:


B: yogurt granola and strawberries 350

L: big salad with humus, greens, carrots, shrimp pasta salad, croutons, edamame, chicken.. all over the place. i will guess 700

S: yogurt 80 and cereal bar 250 - 330

Subtotal: 1380

D: bar 250

T: 1630


Exercise: Bikram 90 min class.


Today on my 4th class I still found I needed to sit and rest during some postures and also take it easy on the ones that bother my knees. My foot is 70% better and I could feel a difference. My knee feel better too! But still bothers me a little.

I felt like I could do many postures better tonight than the past nights and the accomplishment makes me feel great and proud. 

I don't feel it was hard to take 4 classes in a row. I feel like each class is challenging. I feel like the challenge of the class is what counts, but going a lot actually makes it easier. :)

I feel an incredible high and self content. :)

Progress as of today: 10.1 lbs lost so far, only 17.4 lbs to go!

Day 3 of the 30 day Bikram Yoga challenge. 

B: oatmeal 150 and dried berries 100 - 250 

L: ww bread 2 turkey slices, 1 cheese slice, avocado, tomato, lettuce 500, baked lays 130 - 630

S: yogurt 30 strawberries and pineapple 60 granola 50 gingerbread muffin 220 - 360

D: yogurt 80 


Subtotal 1320

S: almonds 100

T: 1420

exercise: 90 minutes bikram yoga


Day 3 was challenging. The room I think was hotter than ever. I am taking is easy in some of the postures because my knee is not great --knee cap on the left side has shifted to the left and i need thigh strength to get better, which I should get through class. And my left foot hurts too. At least it's all on the same side. Haha.

Even some postures that arent that hard for me were challenging. But I can do it. Some days wont be as good as others.

As I was leaving a girl there told me she did the 30 day challenge and dropped 20 lbs. This is not why I wanna do it, because I could get a similar result going 5 or 6 times a week. But there's something about a challenge. I am not that tough and wanna toughen up! And I wanna accomplish something. I'm excited.


Good night to all you lovely girls!

Today is the day 2 of my 30 day challenge with Hot Yoga.

Been drinking water all day but didn't eat all that well.

B: 2 french toast slices 400 with syrup 100 and fruit 100 - 600

L: Bread 300 and cheese 100 and small glass of OJ  90 - 490

S: trial mix 200 

Dinner: veggies with cheese and tomato sauce 400 trail mix 100 - 500

T: 1790

Exercise: Bikram yoga class 90 min - class 2 of 30

I will be posting a journal on my Bikram Yoga Challenge on here. 30 classes in 30 consecutive days. Today was day 2. Some of my comments will be irrelevant to most people because they refer to a specific posture, but it's just for me to keep track.

Day two of my challenge was fine. i felt like I could do it, although my knee and my foot (my foot hurts) kept me from doing some of the postures. I rested a couple of times, I think I only sat down to rest twice, which is not bad at all. I was hydrated and felt good.

Because of my knee and also how thick my thighs are I had a hard time on fixed firm pose. I cannot sit with my butt on the floor with that one yet. I will definitely be tracking my progress there!

Still hard to lock my knees and not lose balance, but slowly, as I strengthen my legs it will happen.

Today I went to the floor for toe stand! I can't come back up, but it was a nice step! :)

I hope the week night classes are okay too, I know it will be a bit overwhelming not to have time for much during the week besides work, take care of my doggie and yoga. Wish me luck!

Exercise: Bikram Yoga - 90 minutes


Well ladies, my Bikram (hot) Yoga studio has a challenge. 30 classes in 30 days!!! I decided to take up the challenge! I started today. 1 class done, 29 to go! I think I really can do it. It will be hard, but friends are willing to help me with my dog so I can have more time and the doggie doesn't pay for it! :) Wish me luck. For anyone who has ever taken one Bikram class, they know it is really a challenge!

I will also take a picture of myself today and another one on the last day of the challenge. We will see if there are improvements. :)



So I was shocked to remember that a sushi special roll (with fish on top) has around 500 calories. Good calories, but still. I had two rolls and my dinner was over 1000 calories. I would much rather have a rice bowl with veggies and shrimp or something that would be lower call and probably more satisfying. Bye Sushi. I won't see you often anymore!!!

It sucks to be locked in a meeting where there aren't any healthy choices. But you can compensate. Good work. Besides a burger now and then tastes so good.

 Big difference on the scale today! Awesome, since I was up since last week (less than a pound, but still up). Today the hard work shows!

hollybelle on 01/25/2012:
I tend to eat the same things over an dover if I like them and I know the calorie count and they are healthy and satisfying - I always say cook once eat 2 or 3 times. You comment about dogs not finishing food and being smarter, etc. hit home with me - we have two dogs and the female only eats what she wants - never finishes her bowl but the big lab would eat until he literally popped, I do believe. He seems never to be full - and is getting slightly overweight thanks mostly to my husband feeding him extras. I guess even the cainines have different eating personalities just like us humans.

WII on 01/25/2012:

No change in the scale. Odd. But okay. It will show at some point!

Yesterday some of you commented on my hot yoga mention. So I posted on the forum a bunch of info about it, if you're interested.

Also, the other day I measured my mugs and noticed 1 cup is about 4/6 of my mug. So careful if you're using your mug as a cup measurement. I wasn't for the most part, only for my dog food, which is maybe why she never eats all her food. She's way smarter than me about her diet! Haha.

 Still up, but 0.2 less 'up' than before. I am okay with that.

I took a 90 minute hot yoga class last night and you burn soooo many calories on that. I felt great. I wanna go back to do more of it. I still prefer the certified Bikram yoga than the generic hot yoga class though. May go back to my old studio.

I don't like to be hot, at least not at the beginning of the workout - so I don't hink I'd like it but I'll try anything once.
