Number of Times Meditated: 13

As you can see, it was a pretty successful week. I practiced yoga every day – watched the 20 minute video online a few more times than I would have liked, but it was a week that started out a little rough so I have to forgive myself for that. I also meditated every day, twice a day, except for Saturday evening – sadly, it was due to the fact that I feel asleep before I did it. I live a craaaaazy life, I know.

I also drank a green juice every day – I am committed to continuing this for the remainder of the 40 Days. I believe this change might have led to my 4 pound weight loss as well.

Overall it was an awesome week. Yoga every day is amazing, I feel different, I feel more toned, I feel strong. Meditation has been a bit of a challenge, but I am working on it and there really is no right or wrong way to do it, so that is good! Cleaning up my eating has been really awesome too – I haven’t had any temptations, I don’t even crave any of the things I am not supposed to be eating. I am craving fruits and vegetables which is incredible to feel.

Week 1 focused on Presence while Week 2 focuses on Vitality.

The important thing here is you must be present to experience vitality. This week we are exploring negative labels and making a conscious effort to remove those thoughts and old behaviors that are holding us back. You can’t let things go if you aren’t present to them.

Our challenge for this week is:

Meditation – 10 minutes in the morning/10 minutes at night

Yoga – AT LEAST 30 minutes a day (preferably hot yoga)

Cleansing Diet – Avoid packaged food

The goal here is to make everyone more aware of the food/drink were are consuming and focus on how it makes us feel. What are the energy blockers? What breaks the connection with yourself and your presence? By cutting out the toxins, we life a more pure life and we can create the awareness to make the connection with our choices.
