Yoga during lunch was good. I really am glad though that I bought the 11 week session at the yoga studio by my house. It just seems like they are so much more experienced there. I will still continue to take the yoga offered at my gym on Tuesdays, but to really get into the practice I will do that at the studio. Before I went to yoga I snacked on an apple, and some grapes.
Lunch today was some turkey chili and cornbread 🙂 Such winter comfort food. Before I went to the gym after work, I had some puffins and a banana.
I did a 25 minute run tonight after I got out of work. All of the cardio machines at my gym have individual tvs on them, so I watched music videos, it made the time fly by so fast. Usually I like doing interval runs, because it makes the workout seem fast, I get really bored of running at the same pace on the treadmill. Today wasn’t so bad. I think that could be a good sign. I got a good stretch in after my run, then decided to loosen up the muscles and relax in the sauna. This is my first time using my gyms sauna. I just usually don’t have time to go after my workout, but seeing as today I had nothing planned after, I walked right in. It was ridiculously hot. I don’t remember sauna’s being as hot as the one today was. It hurt to breathe through my nose. I felt like my nose was on fire. I was in there for probably 5 minutes, I couldn’t relax. HOWEVER, during those 5 minutes some interesting stuff happened. There was another woman in the sauna with me. I wore my towel into the sauna, but I know that a lot of people go nude. She was wearing underwear and thats it. No top. Just laying on the bench. No biggie. but then she started singing, and had her legs up in a table top position against the wall, and started doing butt raises, or bridges. Then she started doing hard core crunches, then got up and did some stretches. All in this tiny room, so she was like 2 arms lengths away from me. Is this odd to anyone else? I never really go into the sauna ever, so I don’t know what the sauna etiquette is, but I was wondering if anything funny like this has ever happened to any of you?
funny story 🙂
Dinner tonight was simple. I had a morningstar spicy black bean burger. I love these! I put a piece of 50% reduced fat cheddar cheese, franks red hot, salsa, and spinach on top with an arnolds sandwich thin. I had a small spinach salad on the side with some goddess dressing. Dessert tonight was some blackberries and half of a whole wheat cinnamon raisin english muffin from trader joes with a little butta. I spotted these the other day and snagged them, and was so glad i did. theyre so good! i recommend them highly 🙂
well i’m going to relax a little before biggest loser comes on!!! then if i can handle staying up later tonight, i will throw a little nip/tuck into the action. Hope you all have a great night
