I'm a shiftworker, so naturally my lifestyle sucks dogs balls. The recent fear of developing 'tuckshop lady arms' and middle age spread is driving me to clean up my act. That, and the fact there's fuck all else to do here. Anyways.......decided its daily yoga practice for me as a permanent lifestyle change and kicking the grain to the curb because I'm intolerant of grain anyway and the last time I gave up eating it my body rocked....
Embraced my new lifestyle all of three days ago. So far downloaded Yoga Studio off the app store.
I'm familiar with the poses anyway and making a regular class is nigh impossible with my job. Awesome app btw, like having a yoga studio in your pocket. Lots of video class types focusing on different things, at different intensities and different lengths. Went out and committed to this lifestyle with some workout gear....yeah any excuse to shop. So far have done at least one yoga session per day. Yesterday I did 2 1hr sessions just because I'm enjoying it so much. So far, so good. Vinyasa yoga.
Each day I eat steamed vegetables and some protein and a yummy grain free sauce like hollandaise for breakfast. Lunch is the killer because I have nowhere to cook meals while I am at work, and I've been too lazy to make salads up the night before. Will have to address that. I have to keep the fruit intake low because I'm a sugar junkie and fruit just makes me go nuts on as much sugar as I can get my hands on. Sadly, because overall I really like it.
Big challenge is drinking the required 3-4ltrs of water a day. But I've cut my coffee back to a piccolo a day, which will help reduce the milk bloatfest I've been experiencing. But plain old water is hard because I prefer it warm, and work always refrigerate our water....the bastards!
