Day 2 brings wakes me up to light Minnesota rain tapping against my window and my alarm buzzing in my ear, reminding me its time to go to yoga class.
Another amazing Vinyasa Flow class taught by my teacher Patience at Lifetime today. An hour worth of A, B & C routine flows. Eventually I'd like to post a video of these sequences. Needless to say, I am getting much better at my hand stands, despite almost falling onto the student next to me (a little too much force on my kick up).
Post yoga class I am trying my best to start implementing a clean, healthy diet. I ran over to Costco and Aldi to stock up on some vegan/organic items, massive amounts of fruit (for my protein shakes) and veggies.
My first meal after shopping consists of:
1. Low-fat greek mango yogurt
2. 1 whole organic mango (my favorite fruit if you couldn't guess)
3. 1 whole kiwi
4. Organic/vegan cashew, almond and pumpkin seed bunches (Costco)
5. Organic/vegan hemp seeds (Costco)
6. Cinnamon chia seeds
7. Maple flax seeds
Need I say this was the most delicious yogurt concoction I have ever created? I think not.
Okay I'll say it anyway, this yogurt mix was amazing! <3
I am getting very inspired by this "yoga diet" (as written in yesterdays blog) and the next book on my homework list to read, "The World Peace Diet - Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony" is also influencing me quite a bit already.
Speaking of this book, its a thick one! Also it's a bit of a slow read, as the Author Will Tuttle goes very deep into each meaning he is trying to convey, so it takes a bit of thought to fully digest each word and subject matter. Overall though, he has made some insightful points to eating food which I never thought of, and I am only to page 5, of 318...Wish me luck!
