The last two days have gone really well.  I am now on day 4 of  my Juice Feast and other than feeling a bit drained on Sunday and having a green fuzzy tongue I haven’t felt the effects of the detox.  Not feeling the same symptoms as last Spring when I first feasted is great as I am able to keep up with my yoga and intense workouts.

*Please consult with a physician or another health care professional before randomly trying any of these exercises/routines on your own. I will do my best to give proper progressions and training tips when necessary.  Ideally, everyone should be screened
by a qualified professional for efficient movement before starting an exercise program.

I have been foam rolling upon waking up to get the blood flowing into my muscles and to prepare for my yoga practice each morning.  I have found that rolling early in the morning  sets me right for the entire day.
My body was really sore today after yesterdays workout so my mind was telling me to skip it but I remembered how good I felt afterward yesterday.  Sure enough, I felt energized once I finished and in fact I felt so good I decided to go for an impromptu jog.
