Observations During Lent
We are a week and a half away from Easter Sunday. For Christians it is the middle of Lent, and people usually give up something as a form of sacrifice. Some form of abstinence.
I personally have given up alcohol, for one. And to be honest, I don’t crave it nor do I feel obligated to partake in a red wine when dining out. Of course, I’m gluten-free and I don’t drink beer.
Yoga at Home and in Class
I’ve been religiously going to Yoga classes twice a week. And also do Tai Chi once a week.
My Yoga practice at home is coming along nicely. I would like to do Yoga everyday but because of other things on my schedule that can be difficult. I’m trying to do Yoga at home at least three times a week.
I like to incorporate poses that I do in class that I usually don’t do at home, so my home practice is beginning to flourish as far as asana poses go. And I do a few Yoga poses at home that I don’t do in the classes.
A Gluten-Free, Vegan Lifestyle
For all of 2017 I’ve been gluten-free and vegan. Recently, since I do miss eating sandwiches, I’ve been trying the Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Sprouted Bread. And I haven’t been feeling any serious side effects, but I could’ve been affected by low energy, but wondering if that just because my schedule is getting busier.
It’s hard to say, but now I’m going to try omitting the sprouted grain bread again and see what happens.
Other than that, I’m doing quite well on a vegan diet and backing up my protein and nutrition intake on Cron-o-meter.
