Nothing much to report today on the practice front, except there was a new teacher's assistant today. Well, she's helped to adjust there before, but hasn't for a while, so was new to me. But I had the most awesome adjust in Mari A from her today (what's the blogging etiquette - do I say her name or not?) I usually get my chin down to the shin, and today I have no idea what she was doing, but she managed to get so much more length in my stretch that even my entire belly was resting on my thigh, and my chin got many more inches forward. I felt such a good lengthening in the pose!
I think these dropbacks are definitely MINE now. Heh. Did 3 today (and solo standing up too! ...but still dancing that jig at the top of the mat though)... but I locked my elbows too much on one of the dropbacks, so the inside of my left elbow (where that bone juts out) feels a little bruised and sore now. Oops. At least I didn't break my arms like I always thought I would.
After yesterday's massive yum cha session (BLERGHHH), I've decided to start prepping for Wednesday's detox. You don't HAVE to do it, but feck it, I wanna get maximum benefit from it right? So as recommended on Urban Remedy's "pre-cleanse" page, I'm cutting out coffee from today. YIKES!!! ...I'm already struggling this morning with trying to pump out this post, sans coffee.
Confession: I still brought my travel mug in my bag today for "just in case" I decide to tear out the door and run to my local joint IF I *need* that cuppa. (I've told myself it's still 2 days to the cleanse, I can still get a single-shot instead of my regular double-shot!) I'm a Producer, I always have to have a Plan B. :)
I'm also increasing the raw food intake from today and cutting out all refined carbs like bread - that's the stuff that will create mucous in your digestive tract. Gross. I've been doing salads for dinners for the past week or 2 so far already, so will keep it raw for lunch from today onwards too. Wish me luck. (I've got my stash of raw nuts & dried dates in my office drawer too... so I think I'll be OK).
