I went to Bikram last evening at 5:30pm. The instructor said in class "Suffer 90 minutes in here or suffer 90 years in your life". This class was tough, as usual, but the heat didn't bother me at all. I learned from my last class not to wipe the sweat off (unless its in my eyes) because the sweat keeps your body cool. I also told myself before class that it wasn't going to be too hot in there. I paid no attention to the heat during the 90 minute class. I concentrated on each of the 26 poses and breathing and the heat absolutely did not bother me at all. She didn't even crack the door open at certain points in this class so there was no cold air break at all and it still didn't bother me.
I can't even explain how exhausting the class is once you've finished. It feels very similar to how I feel after running a long race. I came home starving, ate dinner, showered and then had to sleep. I think I passed out at 8:30pm and woke up at 5am and headed off to spin.
My muscles were sore this morning. Spin was difficult and my legs felt heavy. Of course, the Body Guard looooved his climbs so that's what we spent our hour doing. "Don't paddle like a duck!" He wasn't about to let anyone get away with that. I biked about 19 miles and burned 473 calories and promptly scarfed down my oatmeal and eggs when I got home. (oh, and a multi vitamin, Omega 3 and B-12).
My favorite little man has been sick for his entire school vacation and accompanied me to work again. He conned me into taking him to lunch:
I had a (very expensive) salad followed up with :
Check out this product I saw on the shelves:
I also came across this fruit in the produce section:
We're watching "Die Hard" tonight because I live under a rock and have never seen it. ha! Anyone else completely SICK of this winter???? Ugh.
