I had a pretty good week fitness-wise. I worked out six days: two of just yoga, one of just walking, and three of walking and yoga. It all felt pretty good, except that my knee still bothers me after I've speed-walked for awhile on it. And also, after 4 days of yoga in a row, I was feeling a little tender in my lower back. So I took a two day break (one of no exercise).
Last Friday I did a pretty cool thing. So I knew work would be a slow and that my boss was going to be out, so I brought my yoga clothes and walked to my studio's downtown location for the 12-1 class. It was awesome doing a hard class in the middle of the afternoon. I had been slightly concerned about sweating, but I found that my body was able to cool off during shavasana, so when I put my work clothes back on, I was sweat free.
A couple nights ago, I brought up with Jonathan that I'm somewhat interested in doing Weight Watchers. Right now I weigh what I weighed when I got married. I feel great about it - I really do. But there's this little voice in the back of my head saying, "but how awesome would it be if you could just lose 5-10 pounds??" And I think the new Weight Watchers plan sounds awesome because you can eat all fruits and not have to count them in your calorie log. All fruit - even bananas - zero points! That's sounds so easy!
The idea popped into my head when one of the bloggers I read, Stephanie Klein, wrote about how she's been on WW for 3 weeks and has lost 12 pounds. And she wasn't really fat to begin with, she's maybe just put on a little extra weight of late. Her ultimate goal is to lose 25, which sort of puts her size in perspective.
But in the end, I probably don't need to lose weight. I'm happy with where I am. I like not counting calories and constantly keeping my phone with me at meal times so I can log food.
But just 5-10 pounds would be so awesome....
Anyway - happy weekend!
