Today is Day 47 and as of this morning I have lost 17lbs. in these 47 days. That is a nice perk to going Raw. I am loving how strong and flexible I feel since I have become 100% raw again. I did Hatha Yoga today and I was able to do & stay in the poses with strength and balance with much more ease. I have been doing Yoga again regularly now for about 2 weeks. When I first went raw[47 days ago] my body felt really weak and emotionally was going through a lot. Detoxing is not always fun=-) But powerful spiritually and physically. So I went from doing Yoga once or twice a day to once a week. I just was not feeling physically strong enough and lacked the ambition. I felt a little guilty but my body just did not feel up to it. Looking back on it I AM SO HAPPY I listened to my bodies wisdom and didn't push myself. My body was already going through a lot and healing itself. Releasing a lot of toxins. If I had pushed myself I could have worn my body down instead of allowing it to regenerate itself.
I have been doing Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga now for about 10 months now. Before I went 100% Raw this time around I was having a harder time in the poses and my balance was starting to get shaky. I was doing an AM & PM session as part of my sadhana. Now I am back to doing it at least once daily and working way back to twice daily. Now that I have allowed my body to come into it's own strength again I am doing better than ever. The strength, flexibility, and balance are much more improved. I can also move in and out of each pose with more Grace.
Our bodies are always letting us know what it requires. This is becoming an amazing journey of learning my bodies wisdom. Which is becoming my strongest tool in the world to let me know what is going on around me and my part in it. I love to drink a green smoothie after a nice Yoga session. I can feel it feeding my body all it needs. Today I put Kale, dandelion greens, spinach, Green powder mix, lemon juice, apple , papaya, Kelp, Bee pollen and coconut oil. Yum and very nourishing.
Loving You Always
