Trinny in Jozi

Healthy challenge, day IV

with 4 comments

So, I drank a g&t today. And had to gulp down my one drink of the week, because the show was about to start. I´m not really sure why I bothered to have  a drink at all… It honestly would not have been difficult to say no. I guess I was just bored. Also, finding a way to distract myself from not smoking. 

Because it was fucking difficult to say no to smoking the whole day, although I didn´t succumb to that one. In a way, perhaps, I´m exaggerating. It´s not difficult to not smoke one cigarette. Or not smoke for a day. Or even a week, I imagine – I´ll confirm that one when I´ve done it. It´s more the thought of never smoking again that is doing my head in.

Oh, the above-mentioned show: we went to see  Cirque du Soleil, which I´ll write about more another time. Suffice it to say 100 years of bikram yoga would never get me as supple as those contortionists!

Feeling of the day: stiff muscles.
Vice of the day: One g&t. At least it´s better than the 19 million beers I usually drink at the Irish Village on a Thursday evening!
Encouragement of the day: Email from my yoga teacher congratulating me on completing my first class yesterday.

  1. One drink, but a classy one. Good for you!
    Stiff muscles, I know that feeling. But it will go away soon.
    By the way, I admire your discipline: I could never exercise with that temperature. I would simply die dehydrated. I hated Buenos Aires gyms, almost none has air conditioning!
    Anyway, I need to lose a few kilos, it’s incredible how hard it is to get rid of fat at my early 30’s!!

  2. Ja, lets not talk about discipline until I´ve been doing this a little longer, hey!

    If you come and visit me, I will take you to a bikram yoga class, and see how you feel 😉

  3. Aim for 3 weeks with the smoking. I am told that is the time that the physical addiction lasts. After that it’s “just” psychological.
