Artificial Indulgences….

This past week I fell off the bandwagon again. I even indulged in chocolate cakes, Starbucks (again….I know) & Pumpkin Crunches. It is not that I am indulging in pizza’s and cheese burgers all day long – but I slipped. I missed eating my daily salad bowl & drinking my morning lemon water. Today I was wondering of the whys of these frequent bandwagon slips. I realized that most of the time I slip/fall off my healthy bandwagon is when I get out of my daily regiment of chores & things I do. This past week has been a little out of the daily regiment, with a BBQ get together, Warrior Dash and so forth. I even started to indulge in a daily Snickers bar because I started getting crazy sugar cravings – {bad}.

So today I went by Whole Foods & got me some healthy yoghurt almond sweets together with some chia seeds for my breakfast tomorrow morning! I know the yoghurt almonds are also very sugar potent but I rather indulge in yoghurt almonds than in a artificial Snickers bar, or what do you think?

Left vs. Right Side Tightness in My Yoga Practice

I have noticed something I think is pretty bad. My left side is a lot more tighter & unflexible than my right side. Most of my postures are pretty good on the right side but every time I move to the left it strains, unflexes & just get stuck.

And since I love to analyze things – I am wondering why I am having this problem & the reason behind it.

There are various theories & studies out there sharing information about the difference between a left-handed person and a right-handed person. I am a left-handed person, so you would think that my left hand side would be more open but it is the opposite. However, research shows that there can be cross-over reference of the brain – left-handed people can be ruled by the right side of the brain and right-handed are the opposite.

I am wondering if that could be the reason of my right sided dominance in my yoga practice? But I really do need to start favoring the left hand side whether I want it or not – otherwise I will never be able balance myself out. And I might end up limping my way through my senior years.

Are you a left-handed or right-handed person, what side do you have more tightness on? What side do you favor the most?
