Moderation

16 May

So I got some good advice recently and I really have realized that I AM that ill fated yo-yo dieter. Going on health binges, then party binges then food binges.. Enough! I just need to set some very reasonable goals that will help me slowly get in shape.

1. Eating when hungry – don’t starve, don’t binge, eat healthy or just small portions of calorie dense foods and I’ll feel good
2. Interval training. The last few times I’ve gone to the gym I’ve been doing interval training on the elliptical and stationary bike. I just feel like I’ve really WORKED something. It takes more motivation then just pumpking away at the machine but I’m going to stick with it.
3. Go to classes. Yoga, pilates, at gym, whatever. I am a Crunch gym member, known for their great “Superfun” classes and I never go. I want to try out some new ones, spinning and yoga (even though I hate the idea of doing yoga at the gym – it’s free cause I’ve already paid for it!)
4. Drink less. School is over, summer has arrived and I’ve just been going out out out! What can I say I love to go out and have fun and in nyc drinking is always part of it. My solution – as stupid as this sounds is that I think I’m going to try to get another job, just part time in the evenings. This will be a great distraction for me, great excuse for me, and I’ll get paid in the meantime

As of today i weighed 127lbs. OUCH! But honestly I just died my hair dark brown (I’ll upload a pic soon!), I have my two potential boys, and I’m feeling sexy and feeling good. Gotta love the summertime!

Longing for the days of free Pilates and Yoga classes…

24 Mar

I used to work at a holistic health center two years ago. They taught yoga and pilates, which I could take for free and did 1 or 2 times a day. I have never been in better shape. Toned, long, and a sense of strength and body awareness that I hadn’t had since the depths of my ballet days. Unfortunately, living in nyc these classes are all cost around $15, a few less, some even more. My Bikram yoga classes cost me $20. Not bad for one class, but very expensive when you are considering taking multiple classes a week (or a day!) I wish I could get back on the pilates track though. It went along so well with my previous dance training. If only I had time, but maybe I could work study at a pilates studio?Joseph Pilates
