First off, Bikram was faaaaantastic this morning.
I sweat like I haven’t sweat since I did Bikram in Paris (pre-blog). Seriously. After the first 10 minutes I was totally dripping and by the end, I looked like I had gone swimming. No kidding—the room was 104 degrees this morning! I LOVED it! And, for the first time in my six years of practicing Bikram, I wore my heart rate monitor as an experiment to see just how many calories I was actually burning—-505! Crazy, huh?! Nothing like sweating out your dinner the night before. I also found out that I have 14 classes left in my package, so if I wasn’t motivated to start going more often before, now I really am! It sort of stinks that the only class I can make a week is on Sunday mornings so I have to choose between church or yoga, but I think I’m going to start going to yoga more often. My muscles need it and I say plenty of prayin’ while I’m there! 🙂
Afterwards I immediately devoured an apple that I had in my purse—
And then raced home to shower and meet Sarah for lunch at Whole Foods. Folks, I officially ate MORE food at the hot bar than I have EVER eaten there before. I think my box weighed about 7 lbs (seriously) and even Sarah laughed at me. But I just couldn’t help it! I was shaking from hunger and everything looked sooooo amazing
My layers and layers and layers of Whole Food goodness included:
- Stir fried broccoli with chilies
- shredded cabbage salad
- black bean and corn salad
- channa masala !
- 3 big sweet plantains
- greek salad mix
I had this to drink—
Even after finishing all that food, I still felt like I could eat more. I am a maniac! I had a little piece of dark chocolate once I came home to “settle my tummy” 😉
I’m off to work more on the e-cookbook! See you tonight!
ps—this is a pretty random side note, but WHERE is everyone finding their Naturally More pb??!! I can’t find any here for the life of me and have been reading about it on blogs for months. Where art thou??
