So, since I started having a #Chai tea craving – I decided to fix the solution of cost. I am now working on getting the most tastiest Chai tea to replace my Starbucks Chai tea addiction since it cost an arm and a leg to buy it.
On top of it – the other day I read from another blogger Lisa BeWell who is blogging about her food-stamp challenge that the average person who benefits from food stamps get about $4 of stamp per day – an average of $28 to $30 a week. Right when I read it I had just bought my Chai tea from Starbucks. I had just sipped up a person’s daily food supply in 30 minutes, which made me feel horrible.
So today – we actually got some rain on the little island of Oahu and I made some tea myself & it tasted delicious – almost the same as Starbucks. Plus my Bikram practice today was excellent – I do believe that the practice have a lot to do with the teacher you have – and today the teacher and the tea was excellent!
A Moment of #Chai.
Had to share – Yoko taught me the right form in the head stand the other day – so now I got my head stand going!! It’s all about the bandha.
I still haven’t got into the habit of waking up early – and I didn’t manage to do it fully during my 7 day challenge either. I am a night person who loves to get work done at night, so for me to wake up early doesn’t jive at times….but I enjoy mornings – it makes you feel that you get more things done.
So instead, I went to my Ashtanga class with Yoko. Afterwards I followed Britanni Lynn’s advice that she gave me for my previous post – of trying to replenish myself with energy, so that I don’t crash after the yoga class – the “post-yoga-CRASH-syndrome”. I went to the Food Bar at Whole Foods. It was soo good. I ate the whole thing – which probably wasn’t the best idea:)
Now I am feeling much better – but getting a little drowsy… So I think today’s food intake was not the magical recipe to keep myself off of taking my daily nap aka the post-yoga-crash-syndrome route. Tomorrow I will try something else.
Namaste to you on this Wednesday & now I am off to my daily nap:)!
