Day 23 - Life is Good ... when Healthy :o)

2:40 PM

Workout


We are back to Yoga, people! I tried Bikram Yoga today for the very first time and it was an exhilarating experience. Saying, I loved it, would be an understatement. I have been meaning to try it since over a year but was a little hesitant. It is performed in a heated room (105*F & 40% Humidity) for about 90 minutes and God knows I can't stand humidity. However, since I have been doing Hatha & Ashtanga Yoga for sometime now, the postures were comparatively do-able but to do them while you are profusely sweating-down-your-spine was most certainly a challenge. The sweating is supposed to help the body get rid of the toxins and keep it warm and flexible.

Although, I made it through the class just fine but for the remaining of the day I had to drink a lot of liquids and eat high-energy food. My skin feels refreshed and body feels much lighter. Hence I am definitely going back for the warmth, so-to-speak! It's a good thing that the beginners plan offers 10 session for a reasonable $15.00.

Food

We have been doing immaculately well on feeding our bodies with pure & clean food. I can promise one thing by my experience that in transforming one's body it takes 70% of what you put in, about 20% of exercise and the remaining 10% is accounted for determination and positivity to stick to one's goals. Preach-y but true! So we (Mr & Mrs) have been eating all sorts of berries (Red, Black, Blue), Strawberries, Apples, Watermelon, Celery, Peppers, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Onions (Red, White, Brown), Peas, Carrots, Broccoli, all sorts of whole-grains (brown/wild rice, cous cous, multi-grain bread, whole-wheat tortillas, etc.), and fat free milk/yogurt/cottage cheese. Oh God, I gotta stop as this is making me hungry and it is past my eating time. But, you get the scenario. Life is good when food is healthy! *pat.on.the.back*

  4. Ani - The Yoga instructor said today that the posture that kills you the most is the one you probably need the most! So I guess there's your answer :o)

    P.S. Loving my veggies and watermelon, specially!

    bloggyme - Thanks you for kind words. I don't really have any tips. I just share my experience and thoughts. I officially have no knowledge, really. But Skipping if very good form of cardio, great for leg muscles. You should be careful about your knees at all times though and do it for as long as you can. Build your stamina. Hope that helped :o)
