I have crossed over into week 7 of DDPY and since its a 13 week program, I’m on the down hill side of it! This past week was a hard one for me. I caved to sweets really bad at the end of the week and my allergies have been horrible making me feel like a sneezing zombie! 😀 But I’m not giving in. In seven weeks, I’ve missed two workouts. One because I was out of town and unable to make it up, and the other, I was exhausted and needed rest.
One thing I like about DDP Yoga is he’s always encouraging you to make it your own, and if you need to modify – then modify but don’t quit. Seven weeks in and I’m still doing some modifications. I’m not going to lie about that part, but I feel the burn and sweat after every workout so I know its working. My goal is to complete week 13 without modifications and then I’ll jump into the advanced 13 week course. (fingers crossed!)
So this week -my weakness was chocolate. In fact, I was avoiding it for a couple weeks. But then I caved, bought some, and basically inhaled it one evening over the period of a couple hours. I of course felt terrible but it tasted soooo good! 🙂 Now that I got my chocolate fix, I’m going to attempt having a small stash in the apt so I could have a piece every day and try to control myself instead of depriving myself. My stash is in a high cabinet out of sight, but there if I need it. We’ll see how that goes!
After a crazy chocolatey week and a nearly 6hr road trip on Sunday, how’d I do? Well, I gained .8 lb. Not quite a pound. I was a bit nervous to weigh in this morning but to be honest, I needed to face the music. It wasn’t as harsh or painful as I thought!
Week 7 of DDPY has me working out 4 days instead of 3 – but I’m looking forward to it.
Have a wonderful week loves! xo
