Today is a non-yoga day and I am a little sad. But I’m excited to go to step class and see how I do after 4 days straight of Bikram. I’ve heard that runners notice a difference in their stamina and whatnot after practicing Bikram so perhaps I will notice a difference in my step class. I’m still a little over a month on two risers, so I’d consider myself a beginner at this two riser thing.
I have a confession to make. I’m still weighing myself every day. I know that is probably not surprising since I told you that I was planning on continuing it, but I haven’t been doing much updating on my weight because nothing is really happening.
Until I stepped on the scale this morning.
Sometimes, your body tells you something loud and clear. Today, after two days of cheat meals in a row I gained four pounds. FOUR POUNDS.
What did I eat? Cheese. Bread. Pizza.
Gluten intolerance much? My body is telling me loud and clear, I can’t eat these things. After my normal workweek meals of gluten free and dairy free eating, this is a clear message that I can’t do these things. IT IS NOT NORMAL to gain four pounds in a matter of 48 hours.
Plus, I woke up this morning with goopy eyes and a swollen face. This is classic allergic reaction for me (usually for pollen, but it’s too cold out for that right now), so I know that the food I ate did me in.
Welp, lesson learned. And I hear you, body. I’ll lay off the allergy stuff and keep it to a minimum.
