REBALANCE, Kathleen: Week Two

Week Two: Tuesday, 6/24/14

Weigh-In: 160.5 lbs

I lost one pound!

The good thing about Monday is that it’s the first day of a new week. Monday is another chance to try it all over again. After binging on Oreos and Lay’s Dill Pickle Chips over the weekend, I decided to snap myself back healthy. On Sunday night, I cooked frozen chicken breasts and veggies in a crockpot for a few hours. I planned on having this along with some brown rice for lunch this week. Plus, I still have some leftover salad stuff in the fridge at work. I’m learning that eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. You just have to take the time to plan ahead.

On Wednesday, my Bikram Yoga studio reopened for its first class in over two and a half months. I was there for the 6am class on both Wednesday and Thursday. Then Friday morning, I got hit with an unexpected illness. I ended up having to take the day off from work and spent the whole day in bed. Luckily, I started feeling much better just in time for the weekend. On Saturday, I was able to do some hiking up on the mountain and then snowboard down. Then on Sunday, I took my first river-rafting trip down the Skykomish River. I got a complete arms and legs workout all weekend long.

The Bikram classes this week made me want to increase my water intake. When you spend ninety minutes doing 26 poses twice in a room heated to 105 degrees, you tend to get really thirsty!

I really need to get better at tracking all of the food I eat in my MyFitnessPal app food diary. Thankfully Carli has been such an amazing coach. She pointed out to me that food tracking is just as important on a good food day as it is on a bad food day. Tracking the food I eat will help me be accountable, making me more likely to stay on track. I also appreciated her suggestions on healthier alternatives to my Baskin Robbins binges. Whenever I feel that sweet treat urge come on, I should opt for healthier options like a piece of dark chocolate, Jell-O or if I need the frozen sweet stuff, opt for frozen yogurt instead.
