Started the morning with some Yoga Meltdown with Jillian Michaels.
Yes, Sunday should be my rest day but because of that time of the month..had my rest day on Wednesday instead this week.
Woke up feeling like I needed something light with not much impact- listening to my body.
Really should have been running but it was quite dreary outside and couldn’t motivate myself to be out there.
So at least I did something!
I love this workout..30 mins of dynamic yoga – giving me a great sweat workout and great toning!
It took me most of the morning!
But worth it.
Whilst I had the energy, I also cut up all the fruits & veggies for the next day, which I prepared at night :) – with school holidays over and this juicer taking a little more time to clean – it was best this way.
I was a little behind with my juices because I started making them around 9ish, so by the end of this day, I had one juice left over!
Had my son’s karate grading in the afternoon, so was able to bring one of the juices with me.
As celebration of him earning his blue belt, he usually likes to go out and have something to eat as celebration – a habit that I have yet to break myself. So his choice was muffins from Muffin Break.
That was tough.
I love Muffin Break muffins.
I know they’re not good for me with the amount of refined stuff in them…but I love them nevertheless!
The smell of the muffins and the coffee that I bought my hubby was killing me.
My juice for that afternoon was the Super Chute juice – not my favourite!
But soldiered on and ignored them all eating their muffins.
Afternoon tea is my toughest habit to break!
By 3pm, I want to sit down with a cuppa and something sweet(biscuits, cake)
Most of the time I am good and have nut mix of some sort – but the last few weeks have brought alive the sugar cravings!
After that juice, I was feeling quite tired and fell asleep whilst we were all watching a show together.
A much needed nap!
I spent the evening making them all dinner. With a lot more restraint this time.
Making them all a beautiful chicken & vegetables with rice. Which I know tasted amazing, because of me choosing not to eat it at this time :)
Then spent the evening making my juices for Day 3
I wanted to blog here, so stayed up a little and had to have a chamomile tea to keep me going.
Even though chamomile tea is suppose to help me sleep..in this case, it worked in the reverse!
By the time I went to bed, I had a massive headache!
Remembering that this was all my doing! From all that I have been feeding my body.
Rest is definitely imperative during this detox. Especially when I didn’t wean myself into it.
Thankfully, I was able to finally rest with Leonie Dawson’s Divine Dreaming Meditation. I never heard the end of it..so it must have worked hehe. I love this meditation..most relaxing and healing.
Although I was edgy on this day with all the different changes happening to my body, at the same time, I felt quite calm!
I made it through another day!
And never gave in to the Green Eyed hunger monster! :)
Question I have been asking myself:
Why is my mojo so much more alive during winter than it is in Summer?
Stay tuned for Day 3 and perhaps a revelation for the above question ….
