It’s Monday again and a new week has started. This morning I managed to get out of bed at 5.45 which meant I made the 7.00 o’clock class at my fav Bikram Yoga Studio. www.ducalme.se. It’s just heaven arriving there at 6.30 in the morning and start off the day with some stretching and 15 min of Savasana before the gruelling 26 poses in 40 degrees for 90 minutes start.
Exercise in the morning, especially on Monday is a great way to boost your self confidence and give your self esteem a kick-start. Love it!
A new week means it’s time for the next step of The Plan. Step 3: EAT MORE FRUIT!
”Fruit is quite possibly the most perfect food in existance. It is unique in that it barely requires any work to be digested. High in enzymes, it effortlessly passes through the body, supplying carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids and cancer-fighting tannins and flavonoids. Beacuse it’s made up mostly of water, fruit hydrates the body and aids in cleansing, detoxifying and eliminating”

I am realising that this change in diet should have happened a long time ago. This is my 40th year of living, still not getting used to that, and now is the time to start taking care of myself again. For the past year I have tried to get back into shape and back to a better life style but the stresses of life have just got in the way.
Now that we have moved on from many of the heart aches that have haunted us in the past year, it’s time to focus again. The two previous rules have been hard to follow but I am still trying hard, I am faced with difficult decisions every day, several times a day and sometimes I fail. BUT I try to get back on track every time.
The key is too staying away from all things sweet and all dairy. Wish me luck!
