Lets talk healthy habits.

So this marks the 4th week I have been attending Bikram yoga classes. On average, I would estimate I go 4 times a week (some weeks I go 7 days other I go 2…just depending on work/life/how lazy I feel that particular day).

You would expect to see SOME results in 4 weeks, yes? Especially from this intense hot yoga class that burns nearly 500-800 calories a session. I’ve toned up a little bit, but I haven’t seen much weight loss- which is really what I’m going for here. I AM getting married hello!

Well today I really thought about it and I think I know why. While my main meals during the day are ‘healthy,’ I am a notorious snacker and treat eater. Take today for an example, I was picking up Burger King for my coworker, and while I didn’t order anything for myself- I contemplated snacking on some of her French fries. Um no. OR the other night when D was eating 5 guys- I told him I didn’t want anything but then proceeded to eat ALL of his French fries (See a trend with French fries here? Ew I do). Or today, at work we’re having a release celebration and serving cake to the entire program. Normally, I’d think it was fine to indulge in a piece (strawberry short cake..omgggg) because I ate a healthy lunch.

My real problem is when I go forward 2 steps I sabotage myself and go back 3. NOT ANY MORE! From today forward I’m going to be mindful of everything I eat- from snacking on candy in the office to how much sugar I put into my tea. I’ve got to change something, because what I’ve been doing obviously isn’t producing any new results!

In other news but still health related: I caved and ordered the 30 day shred! Only $8 on Amazon- I couldn’t afford not to! Katie and I are starting tonight- I’ll let ya’ll know how it goes!

**I know I'm jumping the gun here...but dear jillian...get a grip...20 pounds in 30 days?**



  1. The 20 pounds in 30 days isn't accurate, but she will whip your butt into shape. I lost 2 inches off my waist in 10 days when I did it. I've managed to keep it off with running. Good luck!

  2. I want to start doing hot yoga before my wedding too! A friend convinced me it was the perfect way to be "long and lean" in a wedding dress... time will tell. Good luck with your tape!

  3. I hear ya girl! I love french fries too :) I hear the Jillian Michaels workout is awesome... let me know how it works for you :)

  4. if you do her shred daily, you will def. see results. AND you'll be cussing at her thru your tv. :)

  5. Peach Bellinis are my favorite. I have not had one in YEARS. Yummy. My friend is doing her video and the results are amazing. I cannot stand her, but I may have to get the video too!

    Anyhoo--I am your newest follower. I hope you will come by and follow back as well. Juliana from A Blonde Walks Into A Blog

  6. Let me know how the tape works & if you have to buy anything else besides just the tape! Hope you see great results & good luck with not snacking. Snacks are my kryptonite as well!

  7. annnnd another vote for the shred...it works you so much that i get stuck places because i can't open hatches. i seriously have to peer through the little windows until someone comes and opens them. she's amazinnnnng :D

    annnnd also you know i'm a huge closet snacker...i'm hoping my lenten chocolate give up will help that!
