Nothing more frustrating than a pole dancer with no grip!

Absolutely one of the most frustrating things in the the world is when you just can’t grip the pole, no matter how much grip you use. This was me last night, no matter how much dewpoint I put on, no matter how much dry grip I used on my hands, nothing was going to help me stick. Well not to the degree I needed, I have an idea for a picture I want to do but it requires the superman, which I don’t know how to do, so I was attempting to teach myself. It was so very frustrating so I eventually gave up and will try again tonight.

Good news everybody (if you said that in professor Farnsworths voice, you get extra points) yesterday was my weigh in after one week of clean eating and it did my body good, I shed 3-4 pounds in just that week. I’ve also been drinking around 64 oz of water a day, which is what you’re supposed to but I seriously lacked in that category. But I’m proud of myself, I cheated very little last week, I mean like I did have a bowl of candy cane ice cream and maybe some gold fish, but other than that I’ve done really well and it shows, my bloating has gone down too.

I’m doing the Blogilates 12 week clean eating “diet”, I seriously don’t like that word.

I’ve always read that one of the best things you can do when trying to lose weight is to keep track of what you eat. A lot of people don’t realize how much and exactly what they are eating.

Snacking is done without thought, can you say that you remember everything you ate yesterday? A handful of that, a pinch of that, just a little taste of what ever? If you can remember every little thing, kudos to you, you have a better memory than me, but that’s really not that hard to do.

Point is you’re much more aware of what you’re eating if you have to write it down, and for someone who’s disorganized, it’s really a life saver.

The journal is pretty awesome as well. Lovely illustrations and spirit lifting quotes. Not only that but I’m doing this at the same time as thousands of other people and it’s like having a massive support group. I post delicious looking photos up on my instagram (@polefitmommy) and I get likes from all over the place, other people taking part in the 12 week challenge.

In fact I’m going to give you one of the delicious recipes I made yesterday morning, it was surprisingly delicious. I was skeptical when I saw what it looked like, but at that first bite I was hooked. Even though it’s not in my meal plan I will be making it again sometime this week, it’s just too good not to!

Remember this delicious recipe and many more can be found on http://www.blogilates.com

Sushi, it’s the most wonderful thing in this world!

Morning! Are you all ready for the weekend?! I’m excited for today for a whole different reason. It’s my first cheat meal day with this blogilates healthy eating diet! Not that I’m not enjoying the new and different food I’ve been eating for the past week, it’s just that I love sushi! And in light of that today’s post will be about healthy sushi options. Even though it’s technically eating out, it’s not the worst you could do, it’s no McDonalds!

Alright lets start!

tumblr_l57gtuxLU91qayvcwo1_500First off is salmon and tuna! They are probably some of the healthiest things you can eat at a sushi restaurant. High in omega 3, protein and vitamin D.

Obviously the sashimi form would be the healthiest, but if you’re not into sashimi and you’re eyeing the maki, go for something as close to it as you can.

One of my favorite maki’s is spicy salmon/tuna, so good, I’m drooling thinking about it!

wasabi-52Wasabi! I don’t understand why people shy away from this, alone it’s okay but it’s so much better when it’s with say some chicken, or a little dab on your sashimi!

But not only is it deliciously spicy, it also has health benefits!

It’s full of antioxidants, it’s a cancer preventative (Although this has been tested in labs it needs more human and animal testing)

Like all spicy foods it helps lose weight by making your body work harder to digest.

tempura_3As unfortunate as this is, say no to the deep fried food. I know, it’s sad, but keep away from the tempuras and deep fried maki.

For obvious reasons, deep frying foods isn’t healthy, so all those delicious crunchy foods are something you need to keep away from.

I was always told, the less fancy the roll the better!

veggie-maki-rollAdd in the veggie rolls!

Most sushi restaurants have a good selection of vegetarian options and adding a few of these in can be a great benefit to your health!

The more veggies you eat the better for your body.

One of my favorite veggie rolls is the simple cucumber roll, it’s got a delightful crunch!

Lastly, watch your serving size! Maki usually comes in groups of 4-10 (6 being the most common). It’s easy to over eat when you’re not paying attention to how much you order. My favorite sushi place is an all you can eat, which is dangerous for someone trying to shed pounds. Break up your orders into a lot of small orders so that you can fill up at a steady pace, instead of stuffing your face and going into a sushi coma later on. Which I’m not going to lie, I’ve done a good couple of times!

So that’s a few healthy sushi options and tips for you to keep in mind the next time you eat out at your favorite sushi place!

Before I go, I’d like to share with you guys the new move I learned. The other night at pole our teacher showed us the air invert, and I was like… I need to do that. Unfortunately I was not successful in class. Last night I was practicing at home and when my love came home from work I was telling him about it, and then went to show him what we were supposed to do, and I wound up actually doing it. As I hung their upside down I was in disbelief, I actually did it! So I threw him my phone and made him record it so I could see what it looked like myself!

Turns out I can do it, I was so happy! I am seriously exceeding all expectation I had for myself and it feels amazing.

So have a good weekend folks, enjoy the weather, enjoy your family, and I will see you on Monday!
