Sugar Detox. Day 2.

Standard

Last time I did sugar challenge, second day was the worst day in the whole challenge. I was really suffering, I felt like I need a dose of sugar, I had cravings, migraine, no energy…everything was there. So, on my day 2  this time, I was awaiting the same symptoms. Surprisingly, day went not bad))

day-2

I had a little headache, with the one you can live, no need for pills to stop it. I had energy, did my morning challenge exercise, and in the evening I taught a yoga class. To conclude, my day was amazing. I did look at piece of chocolate and at cookies, because people around me are eating all of it, and I wish at that moment, that I can have a small bite, but…I didnt)))

I am feeling lighter, like 10 kg, so I went to weight myself, and yep, not 10kg, but 500 grams off the scale. No heaviness in the stomach, clear head. The most difficult part for me today, is walking after yesterday exercise))) I can feel calves, stair steps are killing me, long time I didnt feel them)))

The challenge exercise for today is for the triceps))) yes… yesterday it was for the legs and today arms))) I will not write a description of the exercise, single leg chair dip, you can see the picture below, all you need is a chair or a bed or another surface that is high as chair!! Do without pause , 10 times each leg, 3 times))) Exhale when you go up! Important! You will feel your triceps burning, but its a good feeling!!!

I am not writing about yoga  few article in the row, however what is yoga?! Yoga is the way of life! It is not just an asana class, it the way your day going, your observation, your thoughts, your breathing, your hygiene, it is all what is going on in your life that you do with the right knowledge, you understand or you learn to understand why you are doing it. Observe yourself everyday, learn about yourself, see the changes in you that are coming everyday, its all about your experience, this is Yoga.

Be the change!

Love and Light!

About oksanawd

Namaste, My name is Oksana Wadhawan and I am originally from Kiev, Ukraine. I presently reside in Mumbai, India, with my husband since October, 2014. I started doing Yoga from 2007 in Cyprus. I was reading a lot of literature on meditation and asanas, trying to do home practice. I was lucky enough that I didnt get injured through my home practice. I started learning Yoga from 2009 (Hot Yoga and Iyengar Yoga) in Kiev, Ukraine. After 3 years of learning, I commenced the yoga teacher’s training course in YogaHot Centre, Kiev, Ukraine (2012). I became a certified yoga teacher and began practicing master classes of Iyengar yoga from 2012. My classes were taught by great Iyengar teachers such as Igor Podmazin, Irina Korovina, Oksana Bogush and many others. In 2013 and 2014, I also went on a 7 day Camp to Yoga Institute, Santacruz, Mumbai, India. I studied Ashtanga Yoga with Lesley Fightmaster in 2013-2015. My teaching experience includes 2 years of Hot yoga, 1 year of Ashtanga yoga and 1 year of Restorative Yoga or Yin Yoga. I am regularly attending and practicing Iyengar Yoga since 2009. As a teacher, I conducted a yoga retreat for a month in Kiev, Ukraine (May, 2015) where I shared my daily experience and knowledge with my students on asanas, pranayama and meditation. In August 2015, I did my first retreat in Goa, India. I believe in words of K. Pattabhi Jois "Do your practice and all is coming." Its slowly coming for me! I learn and experience through my body, my emotions, my pain, my enlightenment, what it is Yoga! Yoga is my way of life! And I can show you a way that Yoga can be your way of life as well))) Love and Light!
