Trust the Process

It has been nearly a month since my last post and so much has been going on. I’ll fill you in…

First and foremost, I started a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Vital Yoga. It’s physically, mentally and emotionally challenging- not to mention it costs a pretty penny. But honestly, I couldn’t be happier with this decision. The transformation is so completely worth it. Speaking of transformation, little did I know that my one-month goal of not eating refined sugar would bump right up to an Ayurvedic Cleanse that began my training. My body had already changed drastically from not eating refined sugar. I’ve lost weight and have grown stronger from all the yoga I’ve been doing. Yeehah!

The cleanse was an ass-kicker. I made it 6 out of 7 days. This was my first time doing a cleanse and I really didn’t know what to expect. I certainly didn’t anticipate being such a cranky hag. My partner was doing the cleanse with me and decided to forgo it after a few days becuase we were constantly bickering. Man-oh-man does diet affect the moods! At one point I even had a little bit of a melt down – my partner told me my hair was greasy (which it was) from lathering myself in coconut oil and I got, let’s just say, a little sensitive about it. I’ve been trying on so many differnt habits lately that sometimes I feel (and look) like a different person. Part of that is amazing, but part of it is strange and frustrating. So much change in so little time is a bit overwhelming, but it’s times like these that you just have to trust the process…
