WEEK 4 – DETOX & YOGA CHALLENGE: REINTRODUCING FOODS

Congrats!  You’ve made it to the final week of our detox and yoga challenge with only SEVEN MORE DAYS TO GO!! With the help of our “secret” facebook group I’ve re-confirmed my belief that participating in a challenge, involving changing deep-rooted food habits, is easier accomplished when feeling supported by others sharing their successes and struggles.  Several times during this detox I’d felt tempted to “cheat” on my detox but, the accountability of going through this with my detox support group kept me on track.  And, even though you may not have joined us in our facebook group, I’ve heard that some of you have taken on this challenge privately.  Congratulations to you and thank you for letting me know how it’s been going for you!  My accountability to ALL of you has personally helped me make it through these 28-days!

FINAL SEVEN DAYS!!

  • Today or tomorrow morning: weigh and measure yourself
  • Introduce these items SLOWLY during the week: meat, dairy, gluten, sugar, caffeine, alcohol.  And, be your own scientist noticing how each substance affects you.
  • Be mindful: prepare your food and beverages with the awareness of how your are nourishing your body with the items you choose to consume.  chew your food slowly. continue your daily yoga and meditation, focusing on self-care and and self-compassion; notice how setting this specific intention affects your health choices.  note any changes in your flexibility, strength, and ability to quiet your mind after practicing 28-days of daily yoga and meditation.
  • JOURNAL!: As always, note any changes in mood, digestion, sleep, etc.  On day 28, complete the self-assessment provided on your last journal page.  Then, just write down anything your discovered about yourself these last 28-days.  Continue to observe yourself as a curious scientist focusing on a fascinating, beautiful subject! 🙂

I wish you the best and invite you to take this challenge even if you are reading about this for the first time.  Here’s a link to the description of this 28-days to health, wellness, peace and power.

Seven more days yogis!  YES!!!

SUGGESTED READING: THE FOUR AGREEMENTS BY DON MIGUEL RUIZ

During my Baron Baptiste yoga teacher training, “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz was often referred to as a guide to living with integrity. I started re-reading this book today and found the words helpful, inspiring, and soothing, so I wanted to share this with you. When we take our yoga practice into our lives, off the mat, the yoga truly starts working and taking root inside our entire being.

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

  • BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
  • DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
  • DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
  • ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST

Sending you light and love…namaste,
Amelia
