I SURVIVED!

So if you’ve read the previous post. You’d know I braved through hot yoga despite a massive Sunburn. Was it painful? Yes. But not as bad as I thought it’d be. Of course when the sweat trickle down it stings. BUT. I felt like the sweating helped me release more heat from the burn. Is it a science? Probably not. Is it in my head? Maybe.

All in all, has Hot Yoga helped me lose weight? I don’t think so. Not right now at least. But I feel like it has significantly improved my lifestyle. How so?

Well. For starters. I sleep like a baby. I’m usually a night owl who likes to watch my tv shows through the night. I could easily do 8 hours straight. With The Flash.. Agent Carter… Arrow.. Rizzoli & Isles… Castle.. Mom… Big Bang Theory… American Dad.. Bobs Burgers… Once Upon A Time.. Vampire Diaries… The list goes on. Don’t get me hooked on Korean Dramas that’s for sure, I’ll wipe out the whole series in a day. That’s how comitted I am. You might say, not all these shows come out on the same day. True. But I have no qualms about re-watching them over again. Thank you America and your team of brilliant writers. You may have given the world the gift of obesity with your superbly delicious junk food. But you’ve also given the world the standard of entertainment. Thumbs up!

So yesterday, after my Yoga session, made my way home. Thought. Hmm. Let me watch some Agent Carter. They had a 2 hour special. But I couldn’t fight the Zzz Monster. It was to strong. BAM. I was out for the night.

Another benefit I feel that Yoga has bestowed on me. I usually sleep till like.. 12pm.. 1pm.. Like I would sleep double the recommended time I should. Even after that I would feel immensely tired throughout the day. But these days, I get up in the morning. With no Alarm whatsoever. I’ve noticed this after the second lesson. I feel less inclined to stay in bed to snooze, and more motivated to get out of bed to do stuff.

Although I haven’t noticed much weight loss from Yoga yet, I feel like my body awareness is slightly up. I feel slightly lengthier and less unfit. If you know what I mean?

So would I recommend it? Sure why not. But more for a method of benefiting your overall wellness. If you’re looking for more significant weight loss results, then I’d probably say doing a Kickboxing class would be more effective.

Till next time!

I have set myself the mission to clean up my room.

IT BURNS!!!!

200_s

This is how I feel right now.

Went fishing on Monday. Was great had fun. & the Sun bestowed upon me THE WORST SUNBURN I’VE EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE.

It burns… It burns so bad. Tried “Earl Grey Remedy” “Vinegar Remedy” FYI. All of them are bullshit. The thing that works best is still a nice cool compress to help release the heat radiating off your face! I can melt ice cubes on this face within seconds. That’s how hot it is. Now I feel like a pruny old lady cause everything feels wrinkled. Lol.

Oh and guess what?

I HAVE A HOT YOGA SESSION LATER with my buddies.

My body be like 40degrees. My face be like a 1000degrees if that was ever possible. I can’t wait for the suffering. Will let you guys know if I survive.

So kids.. Always remember. Protecting yourself from the Sun is not un-cool. It’s so cool it keeps you cool days after you’re done fishing. Or end up like me with a face on fire. If that’s what you like, then go for it. I imagine this is not going to heal up for about a week. Definitely one of the most severe sunburns I’ve gotten in a long time. Very important, you got to keep reapplying sunblock. I did apply in the beginning of the trip. But fishing on a boat is like a 10 hour situation. The sunblock protection is usually gone within the hour. I wore fishing gear which I happily thought was good enough coverage as well. Well it was pretty good for where it covered. My hands and feet however weren’t spared. Looks like I went tanning in a scuba suit if you can imagine. Because the burn is severe, it’s pretty funny looking. White arms, and dark red hands and feet. It’s even agonizing to touch. I’m definitely probably going to invest in those spray on Sunblock. When you fish, your hands get dirty, and other than drinking water available there’s salt water in buckets, but they’re for rinsing off. Not advisable to touch your face with dirty hands or salt water. Why do you have to choose between proper Sun protection and having the ultimate Zit explosion. So best thing to do is Wet tissue, quick and fast easy wipe, spray on the block.

Sounds like a plan.
