I came home and obviously jumped in the shower immediately. I feel like I sweated out 90% of the water in my body so the shower felt good. Then I got into bed and literally could not lift my head off the pillow for an hour. It was horrible. I know from past experience it does get better but at this point I don't have time to feel this shitty. The next time I can get to a class is Friday before my first of 3 weddings this weekend. There is no way I can risk feeling like this on Friday! They just started Vinyasa yoga classes there so I'm thinking about trying that instead.
The goal for today was hydration hydration hydration! I drank a ton of water and whatever food I could get down was hydrating, clean, and high alkaline. Yes, I'm aware it isn't much but it's more than I thought I'd get down!
Those of you that may have taken a Bikram Yoga class know that one of the top rules is DON'T EAT BEFORE CLASS! I'm glad I didn't, I can't imagine how much worse it would have been! I made this smoothie before the class and kept it in the fridge so it would be ready as soon as I got home since it was a bit late for breakfast (I drank it at 11:15am). I focused on getting hydrated and recovering so this one has banana, coconut water (both great for replacing electrolytes), pineapple (anti inflammatory), vanilla vega powder and spinach (alkaline!).
My second meal needed to be light since I was not feeling like ingesting anything after that smoothie so I made another hydrating drink by blending watermelon with the juice of 1/2 lemon (also super alkaline!) and had some plums and seaweed snacks.
Dinner was a ton of veggies with hummus and stuffed grape leaves.
And since most of you put in the request, here's 2 of my 3 tattoos. I don't have a pic of the third.
This was my second tattoo and the only decent pic I have of it. It's cherry blossoms in wind and pretty large as you can tell :)
I have this little guy on the inside of my left foot. It's pretty small and I love it :) A little bit of bad ass I guess.
My third one (the first on I got actually) is a hibiscus flower on the back of my ankle.
OK guys I'm super tired and am ready to relax so the party must end here. I'm bummed that I had such a bad experience this morning (and all day actually) but maybe Vinyasa will work out better for me.
I hope you all had a good day!
