This morning I woke up with grand plans to hit up a yoga class after school. But, I checked the schedule and there are NO Level 1 classes today.
I haven’t been to real yoga in a year. (I went to yoga at the gym two or three times in MD.) And yoga is hard for me – which is why I’ve been avoiding it. But, my muscles are super tight and I know I feel better when I walk out of class every time.
I love a certain yoga studio in Orange County and have been looking forward to getting back there too. But, I will have to wait until tomorrow for a Level 1 class. I considered going to a Level 1-2, but I want to like yoga not have it kill me.
Instead I did 8 min. Abs and a 3 mile run
I grabbed this yogurt from Target yesterday when I went looking for their Fall flavors. They weren’t there yet.
The other night Ben and I were talking about where I am with Intuitive Eating. I was doing really well for a while and felt really good about it. I wasn’t really writing about it because I was living my life and it was coming naturally
But, my super hectic schedule and resulting fatigue and stress has caused me to take some steps backwards.
I am not willing to track my food or calories because I already have enough to worry about. But, I do need to stay aware of when I am overeating, stress eating or snacking out of fatigue if I want to achieve my goals.
I’ve decided to keep track of successful IE days on this calendar. Every day I eat intuitively and don’t snack or overeat – I get a sticker.
Ben always thinks in mathematical terms and basically suggested that if I can get x amount of stickers in x amount of days, or a sticker 80% of the time – I will be making progress no problem. I bought into that theory and decided to test it.
It’s about progress not perfection. I’m not going to get a sticker everyday and that’s okay as long as it’s more often than not – that’s good.
Outside of this, I am just going to be living my life and trying to fuel myself well. This is for observational purposes to help me reach goals without being preoccupied with it. I put a stick on the calendar at the end of the day and that’s it – 5 seconds. I won’t be talking about this again for a while because I am trying to just listen to my body. If you have questions feel free to ask though.
Today is the last day to vote for Challenge 3. Just saying.
