Wheat Free Not Wednesday (4)

Yes it is Friday.

I ate mostly wheat free this week, but there was some pizza and an amazing cupcake in there.

I went to the gym 5 out of 7 days, which is my goal for working least 5 days a week.

I have been addicted to spin for 5 years now, but for the last 3, I have gone in and out with how often I go, but it will always be the default workout that gets me back into the gym.

Because my body is used to spinning, I do not always see the results I once did unless I push myself really hard every single class, which I should be doing anyway, but can't always bring myself to do.  Since, I love it, I still do it, but I do have to change it up for best results.  Enter Bar Method.  My gym offers a ballet body fusion which is basically Bar Method and it ROCKS.  It is basically a mix of ballet, pilates, yoga, and a core class. It tones, lengthens, and strengthens like nothing I have ever tried! 

A BFF told me about it and how much she loves it and since she is often (always) right, I decided to try it and I am becoming obsessed in a good way!  I have done 4 classes in the last 10 days or so and I can ALREADY see is crazy.......I cannot believe I cannot wait for Sunday....when I have class.

The class at my gym is done in an 80 degree studio, so your muscles and joints really loosen and you can focus on balance.  It is addicting. 

I haven't been counting calories for the last few weeks, but it is time this week, I have been eating a lot of junk these days....even though I have continued to

Week 1: -3
Week 2: -2

Week 3: - 1
Week 4: -1
Week 5: - 1.5 

TOTAL: - 8.5

Happy weekend! 


  1. Love love love heated classes. I think all the excess sweating is what is so addicting about those classes, it makes you feel so freaking good. That's probably why I'm so addicted to hot yoga.

    Been wanting to try Bar Method for a while now, I'm thinking I will soon, my knees are somewhat achy lately, and getting into those plie squats won't help. I've never tried a spin class, I dislike standing up when biking, because I'm not fast when I stand up on the bike, but its on my list, and later this year I'm hoping to do Aerial Yoga (yoga silks).

    Does your gym offer the spin class with free weights? I hear that's the popular thing spreading around lately too.

    Sounds like you are doing good wheat free! Its quite a challenge, but so worth it.

  2. Skip the pizza... I ate enough for you today and feel disgusting. My #1 loves the Bar method altho she doesn't do it too much. You are doing SO great with your weight loss - so proud of you and a little envious...Keep it up R&F and keep me posted!!!

  3. You are so much inspiration that I registered for WW tonight. Tried before...but doing it again. With so much in mind to look forward to!


Tell me your truth and I will continue to tell you mine......
