Killer spin class tonight. Well actually it was “Total Cycle,” or in other words super spin with a variety of shoulder presses and curls thrown in. Yeah basically I got my butt kicked! Kicked as in heart rate at 180 within 10 minutes, then stayed there for the next 50.. have I mentioned I’m out of shape? haha.. ok not funny. But it’s a start, and it’s going to get better!
Afterwards I spent 15 minutes or so stretching since I didn’t get in yoga today. Stretching after a great working is one of my favorite things, it feels so good and I feel like I earned it. It’s like a reward at the end ← I’m a dork!
I’m not planning on making this a ‘here is everything I ate today’ deal, but more of an accountability sort of thing while I get myself back on track. I hope ya’ll don’t feel used
It was a good day. Enjoyed homemade mini-bran muffins (perfecting the recipe, then I’ll post), protein shake, ground turkey, spaghetti squash, red peppers, chicken sausage, roasted cauliflower, avocado, a little raw cheese and salsa.. and most likely a slice of lightened lemon loaf for dessert.
Pin(s) of the Day
I found this in a book I’m currently reading, ‘Yamas & Niyamas,’ and I suppose it’s become sort of a theme for the moment. I was starting to feel stuck. Letting myself do the same thing day after day, and being unhappy. For no reason at all. Then feeling guilty for feeling sad when I’m so damn lucky and have so much to feel grateful for. I believe they call that a rut. Well the best way to get out of a rut, in my opinion, is to mix things up! And 9 times out of 10, for me, that involves getting out of my head and back into my body. Whether it’s yoga, lifting, boxing, whatever.. it clears out the cobwebs. I focus on movement and breath and not silliness, and I feel alive again.
And this one matches quite well:
