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!
