Weigh In Wednesday- Detox

smoothiesI am finally going to give myself a kick in the pants- it is detox time. I’ve been looking for a while for a new yoga place (okay, for at least six months). The place I loved was way too far away, and then it closed down anyway. I figured out that there is a nice studio not too far from our house, and they have a deal for beginners- seven yoga classes in seven days for $25. I thought to myself, what better way to jump start myself? My body loves yoga. I can cram in as much yoga as possible while finding out what the best classes are. I try to do yoga at home, but it’s nearly impossible for me to focus and really relax there. I’m always getting distracted with chores or dogs or… well, I’m sure you know how it goes.

In the meantime, if I’m going to be getting my zen on; it’s a perfect time to infuse my body with fruits and vegetables. The more healthy food I eat, the more I crave. I have been using sugar as a serious crutch, and I want to stop. Whenever I eat something sugary, I immediately feel like garbage. I just keep eating stuff because it’s there and delicious.

As for the weigh in~ I am almost exactly the same. I say almost, because I couldn’t bring myself to take off my hoodie for my weigh in (that’s how sick I am. I just could not do it). I am guessing as to what my exact weight is, but for this week it doesn’t really matter. I know it’s not good, and I’m not going to let it define where I go from here.

So, my plan is to start the yoga membership on Sunday and go as much as I can all week. I am also going to cut out sugar and alcohol for the week, and focus on smoothies and fresh produce. I don’t think I can put any recipes from the book on here, but I will also be using my old standby that I wrote about here.

If you’ve tried yoga, what is your favorite pose? I love tree. I need the balance. Even when I’m falling over, it just feels so right!

  2. Sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well. I have been under the weather all week, and it sucks. I’ve never been much good at yoga, but I really want to try that 30 day yoga challenge that is around the interwebs…

  3. If you step on the scale in the month of February, and the number didn’t go up… you win. Losing weight in Winter is SO HARD. Congratulate yourself for not gaining. The losing will start soon. And good luck with your new yoga place! My favorite pose is “nap”.

  4. Some of my favorite poses are downward dog (for stretching legs and back), child’s pose (for relaxing), half pigeon and happy baby (for hip-opening/stretching), and headstands (I just recently started doing these and am still using the wall as a crutch to get up into the headstand from dolphin pose) or really any inversion–they’re good when you just want to clear your head 🙂
