After briefly gaining weight at the end of the week last week (which was weird, because I had a perfect food regiment last week), I did my Monday weigh-in and logged in at 211.8. It’s tough for me to resist weighing myself every day; I always find myself wanting to step on the scale post-workout, even though I know it’s much better to only weigh yourself once per week. The reason given to me by my trainer is that you’ll see bigger gains in a week and it’ll motivate you more than just seeing minute differences every day would.
I’ve discovered a new obsession: fitness yoga. I took this class with Jon and Tiffany this morning, and it was amazing. My heart rate was racing nearly the entire time, and it was one hell of a workout, but it also stretched my entire body out more than it has been in a very, very long time. I think I’m going to do fitness yoga Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then do weight training on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Anyone doubting yoga should totally give it a shot; if you’re not into the spiritual side, then you should just stick with doing fitness yoga. There’s still some relaxation techniques, but they seem to be done more for stretching than anything else. I feel totally relaxed and great right now, so I’m definitely going to keep doing it.
I’m totally addicted to fitness now.
