Monday – Fitness challenge wrap up and juice feasting……

Today is day 29 of my 30 day fitness challenge and whilst I haven’t blogged over the last week or so rest assured that I have been keeping up with my challenge and  exercising on a daily basis.

My exercise now falls into 3 categories:- yoga, running and interval training and whilst yoga still takes centre stage when it comes to my daily workouts I am keen to keep up with both the running and the interval training. I am being careful not to overdo the running as it can have a detrimental effect on the yoga – running tightens muscles; especially hamstrings, and with yoga you are looking for the opposite effect to be true. Luckily so far I haven’t seen any adverse reactions to my running – probably because I run so slowly – hehe – so for now I will keep it going as it is.

So, my 30 day fitness challenge has been very successful and I have a renewed appreciation for daily exercise. I will definately be keeping it all going.

Having kick started my exercise again it has made me look at other areas that can use a little overhaul. My diet is pretty good these days being about 95%raw with the odd piece of fish or raw cheese. Over my years of being raw I have tried many times to do a juice feast but have never lasted beyond 7 days. So, my next challenge (I am a girl who loves a challenge!!) I am planning a longer juice feast. Starting today I am going to try and juice feast until the beginning of June when we are going away for a few days. I will probably aim to feast until the 5th June which gives me 27 clear days. I have enlisted some help in the motivation stakes  in the form of my little sis who is going to be doing a modified juice feast alongside me. She will juice for breakfast and lunch and then have a salad for her tea. Hopefully we will be able to keep each other on track.

Exercise today will be:-

Ashtanga yoga full self practice – about 90 minutes

Juices today will be:-

Orange, grapefruit, celery and spinach

Pineapple and pear

Apple,  spinach and cucumber

I will be aiming to get in about 4 1/2 litres of juice a day plus water and hot teas. It usually takes me a few days to get used to drinking that amount of liquids so I guess the first few days may be a little short of the 4 1/2 litres required.

Thanks for reading…………….
