I had totally fallen off of the wagon of my healthy eating habits and just couldn't stay away from cookies, sodas, and chips. What kind of yoga teacher and yoga studio owner eats all that junk?!?! The real kicker for me was that my expensive yoga pants weren't fitting and I didn't want to have to buy new ones! One afternoon in early summer one of my friends, that also owns a yoga studio, let me try one of her green shakes and it blew my mind because it tasted like a blueberry muffin!!!
As it turns out this tasty shake was a key component in 10 day cleanse involving the green shake, some vegan protein supplements, electrolytes, and alternated between eating fruits/veggies and drinking these tasty shakes. My curiosity was peeked and I thought, "Why not?!?! Instead of spending my money on the junk food for ten days, I'll spend it on these healthy green shakes!"
It turns out it was so easy because over the course of the cleanse, I was getting to eat and drink all day everyday!!! And believe me, I love eating all day!
It was wild to see the progress over the 10 days with every day watching the "extra" melt away with my cravings and my pants were fitting better by the minute!
The part that really sealed the deal for me wasn't just that my pants fit so quickly, it was that on day ten of the cleanse was also the day that we had a guest yoga teacher, Dave Farmar coming to teach at the studio that night. His classes always kick my butt!!!
Two side notes here:
1: I had my nutritionist look at the products and ingredients and she approved!!!
2: I've always told myself that "I need meat protein to feel good and strong".
But at the end of the day transformation I took Dave Farmar's class having only had fruits, veggies, these tasty shakes, and the vegan protein supplements for ten days, aaaaaaand I felt like a rock star in his really challenging yoga class!!!! I felt strong and powerful! My pants fit, and I kicked my cravings for the junk foods!!!
As you can tell, I'm pretty excited about it and I am even more excited to do it with our community October 1-10.
