That is, pilates complete with farting.
I did my first pilates class for a coupla months – and by God, was it hard! My glute med have atrophied. And all that squeezing the tummy in and straining when feeling a bit bloated results in whoopsies. The noise can be camouflaged but the smell, unfortunately, cannot. But it was a great class with Sophie, she is a very good instructor.
I heard about some contemporary dance classes for beginners. Would love to give it a crack. But oh, the time! the time!
A flash of inspiration today….
I need some way of keeping myself from having calorie and junk food amnesia. I was considering going back to calorie king to record my intake but it is very time consuming and boring and I have things that I would much rather be doing. So I thought I have to have a simple way of recording it.
So….what I am doing now is putting a score out of 10 on every day on the calendar. Taking into accout stuff like
- Portion Controls
- Extraneous things like cakes, chocolates, sweeties etc
- amount of vegies and good proteins eaten
- Alcohol etc.
And then a star beside it if I exercised. 2 stars if it was a big exercise.
I would aim for a score greater than 7 most days with the odd slip below 5 (not more than once per week).
I have not worked out the reward system is yet, but I feel that a certain amount of points or stars should earn a prize.
Best thing is – it is a reward (rather than punishment) system and it is simpler than calorie counting.
I think today should earn a 7.5 or 8, but I will round up. And I got a star for pilates. I will record them when I do my blog, so I can be cheered on.
It is giving me the shits. I need the “WTF?” stamp so I don’t need to write a big spiel in the notes.
