Day 81 – Do you need to love or be loved?

Met up with an old friend the other day, who put down her gloves to pursue the world of yoga. And just as her adventures with muay thai, she grabbed yoga with both hands. Moved to India for 6 months to study, live and breathe yoga – and when we met, she said this about relationships: ‘The best balance is when someone who needs to love, finds together with someone who need to be loved’.

If you think about it, it can make perfect sense. There is a giver and a taker. Nothing and no one is 100% one thing of course. The giver needs to be loved too – but maybe not as much, as the person who needs to be loved. Likewise the person who needs to be loved, will also love the giver – at least in my world. I can’t picture two people staying together for a long time without any love between them.

Would this also explain if one person feel ‘too good’ for the other person , and therefore holding back on committing?

I guess if relationship could be had with yourself, it would be more simple. Anyways.. yoga thoughts for thought!

Detox day 4, Lent day 12

Horrible, horrible weekend!!

Detox this year has turned out to be exact opposite of my first experience! Day 1 seemed to be fine, I was hungry but it wasn’t too bad and mucoid and plaque started coming out, day 2 kind of the same, but day 3 and 4 has been hell!!
I’ve been cold, in pain, mucoid and plaque started to slow down on day three and today has been soso. But I’m in so much pain – my backside is one big knot and I think, I can turn water to popsicle with my hands.

In hindsight, going on detox when we were coming of the flu – and on that time of the month (you ladies know what I’m talking about) – might not have been the most ideal conditions, but I had set my mind on thursday, so, I felt I had to do it.

Now with only one day left, I am thinking about only doing half a fasting day tomorrow. I have two classes (one KB class) and probably some PT sessions as well. And I really need some energy and strength to pull it off after 4 days on apple juice and powder.

Blessed Herbs powder in Innocent Apple juice. Been living of this drink 5 times a day for 4 days now.

My yoga challenge for the weekend were soso fulfilled. I managed to do around half -I think – of the Vinyasa Astanga series and repeat, but no runs in the beautiful hills of Simons Cove. A few walks on beach was what I managed.
Buhuu! Feel like a puss, a wuss and a failure – oh and I’m also whining. Sorry!

Strong fit girl will be back on the blog at the latest by Tuesday.

Ps, Tomorrows 40 day Lent challenge will be not to whine!

Detox 2nd day

Second day of detox and 10 days into Lent.

Funny thing I noticed about my detox – it almost started working right away this time. First time I did it, it took a few days before I could see the ‘results’, but this time, it’s already here. So maybe my body have been waiting for this?
If you haven’t heard about detox colon cleansing, I found this youtube vid of a guy who is doing it. I have no idea if he is also using the Blessed Herbs products or something else.

Results: mucoid & plaque

Also for the sceptics, truth be told, I don’t know if mucoid and plaque really exists. Or if it’s just the apple juice and the powder reacting in the stomach. But I did experience more tangible results last time – and I hope to see them again this time: brighter, better skin. Feeling overall better – and the feeling of accomplishing the diet itself felt good.

Remember, I am a person who loves to eat! (and do it very frequently)

Todays trip to the gym:

10 min on x-trainer (treadmills were all busy)
4x 5x 40 DL for tech + Im feeling very weak!
150 abs/ 50 back

Yoga tonight for the challenge.

1st detox day – Challenge day 9

My first detox day. On blessed herbs essential cleansing kit

Woke very hungry, got my juice and powder and was immediately back to about two years ago, when I did the detox the first time. Ugh – the taste hasn’t improved since. Anyway, I’ve been feeling ok for someone who is eating almost constantly, to not eating at all. Have been doing the whole Juice every 3hour thing all day (have another cup to go).

But I’ve started feeling little off in the afternoon and it hasn’t gotten any better. I’m cold and feel a slight “cap” on my head. You know this feeling of the flu, before it sets in? To me it feels like a small pressure just above the eyebrows.

I’m hoping it will be gone by morning and I’ll feel fine again.

My challenge today was 30 pull ups. I know it’s weak!

So training today:
3 k on treadmill – around 11.5k, sprint last 200 m

30 Pull Ups: 5,5,5,4,4,6, 1

As good as I could – Yoga set (can’t remember the Astanga Vinyasa series to details)

Challenge & training tomorrow depends on how I feel. Hopefully I feel good enough for a gym session and a yoga series.
