Sunday – 90 minute restorative yoga class w/yogaglo. Food – high calorie day (imitation Thanksgiving). Still made wise choices with quantity though. About 6pm had one of those intense pains in my chest/back area. Acetaminophen took the pain away. Had it again about midnight. Has happened before. I think it’s a muscle spasm of some sort in my thoracic region of my back.
Monday – 30 min road walk at 6AM, KB workout (520 dh 12kg, 5x20sec planks, 15 16kg deadlifts, 15/15 8kg halos), 60 min restorative yoga class w/Kerri, 30 min SMR. Tracked calories today in Fitday. Without veggies – came in around 1100 calories. I’m guessing I ate 100-200 calories of veggies today. I think it was Tracy Reifkind, who says in her book that she counts her daily veg at 100 calories. Wine free night tonight.
Tuesday – 6 hour yoga workshop, massage – really helped my neck/shoulder. Think I might do another massage before I go to a physio.
Wednesday – KB workout (520 dh 12kg, 5x20sec planks, 20 16kg deadlifts, 20/20 8kg halos), 30 SMR/yoga stretches
Thursday – 30 min road walk, 90 minute yoga class w/Kate, 30 SMR/yoga stretches
Friday – 30 min road walk, KB workout (520 dh 12kg, 6×20 sec planks, 5x 5 16kg dl, 5 5/5 8kg halos), 15 min SMR, 60 yin yoga
Saturday – 45 min beach walk, SMR, 30 min restorative yoga ala Judith Hanson Lasater
Summary: 3 KB workouts (approx 1500 dh swings), 4 walks, 5 yoga sessions, SMR most days. Overall a good week with food. Had 4 no-wine days, tracked calories several days just as a benchmark. 60+ minutes of some type of meditation/relaxation daily. Took my blog public. Feel stronger but not necessarily smaller. I need to remember that my goal is not simply to lose fat – but to be healthier and the steps I’m taking will bring me there. Yes…..losing fat will help me be healthier but since I don’t weigh – it’s hard to measure ‘healthier’ improvements. Trust is my friend, I guess.
