I am excited, nervous, and a bit scared to fail, but I think this is a great time for me to take on this challenge. According to Diana, the owner of the yoga studio I go to, this boot camp is a 21-day detox for the mind, body, and spirit. It is a cleanse and a resetting of the self. I need all of that.
It comes at a perfect time, too! I will be achieving my 21st day in a row of exercise on Sunday and when this boot camp is over I will be at 40 consecutive days of exercise!! When this is all over I am going to treat myself to a facial and a session of Thai Massage. After all the detox I am sure my body will need it! :D
As for the boot camp, I will write a detailed blog about it tomorrow after I receive all my instructions and, of course, will blog during the experience. For now here is what I know:
- Yoga M-F 6-7am
- Week 1 - cut out all processed foods
- Week 2 - cut out all animal products
- Week 3 - there will be a 48hr fast at some point then we'll eat kitchari which is supposed to be pretty tasty.
- Breath work
- Sweat therapy
Here is what I am hoping to get from it: A restart. I need to defog my body and my brain, pop loose whatever it blocking my mind and keeping me stuck in this same spot in my dissertation process. I think it is going to be a challenge, but I am up for it.
