Weigh-in: 305.2

The train just keeps on going. I was somewhat trepidatious for this week’s weigh-in. I felt like I had gorged on a little bit too much rice (the anti-food for Project JGF). Also, the gym on-campus was closed for most of this week. Maya (my favorite digital fitness instructor) and I had a 45-minute workout session to make up for Wednesday’s normally scheduled gym day. You think that 45 minutes with a literally unreal trainer would be cake? Oh no. Maya introduced me to the most challenging of workouts I’ve had so far.

Yoga.

I kid you not. I was in Warrior 1, Triangle 1 & 2, and Moon pose (along with the prereq kicks, knee lifts, and double step-touches), for a good long time, and I’ve never sweated so much in my life! At the end of each workout, Maya tells you approximately how many calories you’ve burned. In this yoga workout, it came to about 407, in other words, nearly double any other workout I’ve had with her, for only 50% more time!

I had thought yoga was supposed to be relaxing and not necessarily a workout, but boy was I wrong!

In any event, my schedule this week was like this: Gym on Monday, 30-minute-Maya on Tuesday, 45-minute-VinyasaMaya on Wednesday, 15-minute-Maya on Thursday (she was lucky I showed up at all), Friday off, and then Gym today (8:30am with Scott!).

I hopped on the scale after my workout, and am pleased to report that I have lost another 2.1 pounds. Go me! Am I having fantasies of looking like Andy Roddick on the cover of this month’s cover of Men’s Fitness (btw, the most body-fascist, misogynistic, and heterosexist rag I’ve ever read)?

Kinda…I don’t want to look like Andy Roddick. I want to….well……what I would say is not fit for mixed company.

    If Power Yoga is the one that’s done in a heated workout space…my body sweats enough without giving it incentive!

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that
    you should publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo
    subject but generally people don’t talk about such subjects. To the next! All the best!!

    I almost never leave a response, but i did a few searching
    and wound up here Weigh-in: 305.2 | White beaches and the world’s biggest K-Mart.. And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.

    Is it just me or does it look like a few of these responses come
    across like written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional sites,
    I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
