So in the spirit of the theme of New Beginnings, I hauled my sugar soaked body through a gentle de-tox for the first week of January. The results?
A 4lb lighter, fresher, more relaxed and less agitated me. Yes - even dedicated yogis get irritable and cranky despite their practice and pranayama (breathing exercises) to purify and balance their system. But sometimes even dedicated yogis forget about the importance of good diet. And I didn't realise the negative effect that my coffee habit was having on my nervous system, coupled with the sugar overload I was ingesting to keep my energy on the up after the caffeine 'crash'.
My New Years resolution? To be the fittest and most fabulous version of myself for 2014. Onwards & Upwards!! Happy New Year. I hope to meet you on your mat.
