Yoga Aint No Joke and Other Revelations

Today is weigh-in #1, and before I reveal my results, I just want to recap my week. It started really badly. I wasn’t taking it seriously, and I damn sure wasn’t exercising. Anyhoo, Tuesday, I really got my act together. I’m still not the healthiest eater, but I’m moving my ass. As I keep stressing, Jillian Michaels is the truth! I’ve been doing Level 1 of her 30 day Shred, and I’ve been sweating my ass off! I feel like I’ve run a 5k after doing those 20 minutes. And you know what? My body is starting to crave the workout. I feel so anxious if I don’t work out. I do my workouts in the evenings. It’s a great stress reliever, and the workout prepares my body for blissful slumber.  So I’m doing Jillian 5 days a week (Tues-Sat) and on Sundays I’m doing a 20-min yoga workout. Let me tell you something: Yoga aint no joke!!! I didn’t know you could bust a sweat. Who knew finding your center and breathing could be a workout. Oh yeah, Mondays are my rest days.

After years of abusing my body by fueling it with garbage, I really am trying to eat better. Anyone who knows me, knows that I cannot stand water. To combat that, I’ve begun putting my water in a wine goblet. It’s so chic, and it tricks me into thinking I’m drinking something really nice. I also found these great square bowls at Tar-jay for about a $1.38 each. They’re gorgeous, and I use them to put my meals and snacks in. It helps me control my portions and it’s so chic. I love chic!

Now, for the weigh-in: I now tip the scales at 183. That’s a 4 pound loss! I am psyched! Next week, I hope to say goodbye to the 180’s forever! Wish me luck, and I’ll holla at ya’ll on Wednesday!
