so i went to yoga last night

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

it was the first time i have really done any yoga in 3 years. the last time i did it was bb (before brat - lol). it was great physically and even more so mentally. i never have time at home to declutter my head. even when i try there is always something staring at me in my face. i was a little sore today but not sure if that was from yoga or from pushing the brat up the hill in the stroller on my run yesterday (in the pouring rain).

it was raining so hard last night. even for this vancouver girl it was a bad rain storm. i got there and no one was around. no one actually came. the teacher was embarrassed and ensured me there is usually about 12 people there. i got a private yoga class for $5. pretty good deal!

i am going to try to fit this in once a week depending on dh's work schedule.

    Love the use of bb to define the period of your life before kids lol! That's a good one.

Glad you had fun at yoga! How awesome that your first class in years was a private one.

    I was wondering how your foot was feeling? You must be feeling much better? Looks like a great plan for June!

i am being forced to watch the wiggles...

Wednesday, June 04, 2008

if you have a toddler you know what i am going through. if no toddler i don't recommend you watch - lol. however, it is way better than yo gabba gabba. omg that show makes me laugh out loud it is so funny and strange.

so nothing exciting going on today. found somewhere to do yoga at a reasonable rate that may fit into my schedule. $5 for a drop in is a great rate around here. some places i were looking at wanted $15! if simon doesn't work tonight i may go. hoping he works though as he hasn't worked this week yet.

anyone else out there with a husband with completely unstable work??? sometimes he works like 14 days in a row and then nothing for the last 4 and i start panicking about money.

i'm torn if i want to track my food or not. overeating isn't an issue for me even if i am eating junk food. i seem to normally consume about the right amount of calories to maintain my weight (even when i was heavier). it is the quality of my food lately that has been going down hill. i am just lazy about cooking lately. maybe i am just in a funk.

after my half i panicked because my weight went from 127 up to 134. i started birth control too so that had something to do with it. my weight is back down to 129 today so obviously my body was just adjusting to the hormones. i have tom visiting right now. i wonder what will happen when i start my next pill pack. if i go up and down 5 lbs a month it will be frustrating though. not because of the number on the scale but those 5 lbs seem to be the difference in a size of clothes for me.

the exciting news is my sister is getting her ultrasound done right now and hopefully they can see the sex of the baby! we are hoping for pink cause she already has 2 boys.

    I HATE the Wiggles, but you're right it is way better than Yo Gabba Gabba. Is that show for real? I swear whoever came up with that one has a stash of really good drugs.

The weight thing must be incredibly frustrating. I bet it's the BC if this problem started around the time you went on them. It just wouldn't make sense if you're eating the right amount of calories that it would be anything else. If it's the pills that's comforting, because at least you know it's not anything you're doing wrong. Hopefully your body adjusts!

Hope your sister gets a girl. I can't imagine having three boys, but then again I can't imagine having three girls either!

    Ugh, yes the wiggles, I'm familiar. lol! At least you didn't have to suffer through Teletubbies. lol! Oddly fascinating though. I'm on BC and my weight doesn't go up and down 5 pounds every month. Maybe 2 during TOM and then right off. BUT I wasn't watching my weight when I started them so I don't know a difference.

Cut out the junk food! loL! It's BAD for you. That was me being bossy....and a hypocrite too. lol! emoticon

    Your comment made me think of my sister-in-law -- she too was a victim of the wiggles . . .until she started dancing around to all the songs! She would get in 20 minutes of cardo every show and my nephew loved dancing with her! It was the thing that kick-started her losing weight and she has kept it off - even now, after my nephew has moved on to Lazy Town (also evil!)

June Goals

So summer is coming? Well who knows. It is going to rain here for the next week straight probably. I am pleased to report my butt is starting to feel better. Not perfect yet but getting there. I am down to going to chiro once a week now and have canceled my physio appt for tomorrow. I am looking for somewhere to do drop in yoga at a reasonably rate that actually fits my schedule. I guess that will be a miracle - lol. If i can't find anything I guess I will find a yoga dvd that is not too crunchy. Need to work on that flexibility.

these are my june goals:
weight train at least 3 times per week
run 75 miles
track what i eat 6 days a week
cardio 5 days per week (walking at work breaks doesn't count)
stretch 7 days per week at least 1 time per day

1- 5 miles lsd run (513 cals)
2-mtc circuit #4, 10 MINS ELLIPTICAL, 20 MINS SPINNING (555 cals)
3-shred level 1, 20 mins turbo jam (360 cals)

    Yep, just signed up, thanks for the reminder! I did it a couple years ago, and got my yellow hat, but missed the red and blue hats :(. Oh well, I like green, too :)!

    Have you done this before? That's cool that they have different hat colors each year. Probably pretty common thing in the running world, but since it's still new to me...lol! I get a kick out of stuff like this.
