August 17: home from Arizona and I went to bikram. It was so hard! I think it was a combination of 3 days of not doing yoga, the travel, the heat in Arizona, and the high amounts of sodium and fat in my unplanned foods. I was hoping to sweat some of it out but it didn't go as planned. I got HOT and didn't sweat for awhile. I had trouble with some of the poses too.

95 minutes Bikram yoga

August 18: much better day today at bikram. I did one class at 11 am and it was awesome. I felt strong and much better than yesterday. I went home, showered, had lunch, and went back for another class at 4 pm. I rarely do two classes in one day. It was so much harder to do the second class. I started sweating immediately and dripped sweat through class (it was also 100 degrees outside). Very good class though and I didn't quit. I'm hoping some of the water weight will be gone tomorrow.

total of 200 minutes of Bikram today

Totals:
21 workouts

Monday, August 19th:

Wanted to run but it was still too dark outside & my running route is a wooded park -- not a good idea around here. This made me realize how the summer is passing, because of the later sunrise time.

So instead ...

60 minutes arc trainer, hands free, hill intervals, put the resistance at 10 and definitely found that doable. So I've worked up from nine at last.

I have over 10,700 steps for today. I think next week I'm going to split my strength circuit and add in some intensity intervals into it. I just learned to run (at age 43) and I'll be doing more of that on my cardio days. I did 5x 1 minute sprints today with 5 minutes walking in between.

Ran 4.27 miles through the wooded park this morning, as I had a little more time to wait before driving into the office.

Thursday, 22 August:

60 minutes elliptical, random intervals, resistance at nine, really tough today
60 minute Pilates class, a disappointment, as the substitute teacher did a barre workout and then weights -- very light weights with high reps, as she's enamored of the Tracey Anderson Method. I'd been trying to rest my right arm this week and this morning it's sore.
