maybe it's the full moon in Aries. but my ass is getting kicked into gear. i can actually barely type this cause yoga class was so awesome that i am not really down from it yet. it is harder after being gone for two months. i can't believe i only took two class since july 14th. and then started back up yesterday. i am kinda feeling like doing the 30 day challenge, but we'll see. so, it is harder, but i also feel more gentle with myself, like this is a lifetime practice and i don't have to do all the poses every class, exactly right. just do 100% of my ability that day, and i will receive 100% of the benefit. man my hands are shaky. good thing for spell check. :)
and i started the cleanse this morning. since i never take herbs or supplements, unless i have a cold, i choose to make it very simple. (and i know...bad, bad herbalist!) i bought healthforce nutritionals' vitamineral green powder. it has everything green in it, I'll get the bottle next time and let you know some of the hundred things it contains. and i am going to do the earth powder by the same company...and use it like a broth. again, i'll elaborate on ingredients next time. i also have their intestinal drawing powder, for gut support, since i have been feeling a little less than stellar in that area. which i am so not used to. the first few days i am going to eat food, and then maybe spend a couple days just green juice and other liquids. i am also doing a detox tea everyday for liver support. but i am cutting out dairy, soy, wheat, meat, eggs, sugar and salt. any other allergens i am leaving out? doing this for a week. well, we'll see. that is my intention. to finish up vegan month all cleaned out and ready to add foods back in one at a time and see how they affect my system.
also reading pema again...this time "The places that scare you"...by Pema Chrodron. awesome!
anyone else up for the challenge?
