Is it just me or do you do this too?
I sit around all day, forgetting to drink water and then realise… OMG it’s time to go to Bikram Yoga I need to drink!! And then proceed to swallow as much of 2L of water as I can before the class starts!!
I’ve realised I do this practically EVERY time and so I get to class with a stomach full of water and proceed to burp throughout all of class (usually after all the compression poses). I’ve also started to go to the toilet just before class because I’ve found myself busting to go to the loo during class and having to endure compression poses whilst holding everything in – not very smart.
Does my binge drinking water do me any good? I do sweat which is awesome, I only take the littlest of tiniest sips during class when my throat feels dry so I think it works but the stomach full of water is uncomfortable and burping constantly in class isn’t really any fun.
My ideal would be to drink regularly and be hydrated throughout the day.
Any tips for how to get into that mode? (other than sticking a water filter with a straw attached to it on my head…)
The other thing I’m very curious about is the coconut water. It’s the only drink they offer at the studio (apart from water) and everyone seems to love it.
So Tones and I headed to Wholefoods to buy some – at a whopping GBP3.50 per litre, we thought it was some kind of super water but it turns out just to be the liquid you find in a coconut!
That’s a bit much don’t you think? A coconut doesn’t cost that much!!
So we went to the grocery store to see for ourselves and bought 3 coconuts for GBP1.50!
We cracked it open – Tones tried to use a hack saw ’cause we don’t have a cleaver and then after about an hour I decided to look it up on YouTube “How to crack open a coconut” – turns out all you have to do is hit it with the back of a knife! LOL
5 seconds later, the coconut was open and the liquid was in the bowl – slightly disappointing as it probably was only 50ml but it was very sweet and much tastier than the coconut water we bought.
Made me think what we bought was just this coconut juice mixed with water? So what’s the deal? Why is it so special and why is it so expensive?
I’ve tasted MUCH better coconut juice than this “coconut water” and it just made me wish for the frozen coconut juice you can get back in Oz…
Do you know the one? The baby coconut juice in the plastic cup with the straw – it’s just like eating a coconut slushy with chunks of coconut flesh (no added sugar, just the water that comes out of the baby coconut plus some of the flesh)! Oh how I wish for one now! No, I haven’t seen them here… 7 years…. it’s been 7 years!!! Remind me to have one of those when we next visit…. I want that and a mango!!
