For the past 60 days, I've been on a two-week cleanse and now two weeks into my six-week strength conditioning.
The Food Situation
I began with a two week Blue Print Cleanse so I could notice my eating habits see what I was doing. With no food preparation to think about I had time to reflect on my diet. I learned how little presence and ritual was associated with my food and also how little I ate. I decided that everything I do is filled with passion and joy–so why not my eating? And made a commitment to never feeling hungry. Eating small portions throughout the day. These go together. If I get more excited to eat, I can eat more and make more time for it.
The Exercise Situation
I'm a runner and do about five miles a day, five times a week and one day of yoga. You'd think I'd be super lean with that workout, but it turns out, that's not how it works. In order to be lean and toned you need to be eating enough food for your body to burn and to be doing exercises that constantly surprise your body. I was in a running rut and the little calories I was eating was slowing down my metabolism.
My eating habits are better and I am combining H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training) with yoga and I can already see a difference in my triceps. I mean did you get your tickets? Tickets to my gun show :)
I don't want to lose weight, per se, I want to feel strong. As a woman, that doesn't mean muscles, but it feeling solid. It's a work in progress...
