Coffee

I sneaked out of Kripalu and into downtown Lenox to have a cup of coffee. I’ve been without since Sunday and I wanted to be sure my taste buds still recognized the taste. We were taught that dark roast could be damaging so I opted for the lightest roast possible. Small, hot coffee.

I added a bit of whole milk (please be from a Jersey Cow) but did not add sugar or (gasp) Splenda.

Result? Good. My taste buds still work and I am not dependent on the sugary taste of Splenda to make life good.

Yes – one step closer to health!

Why the Urgency?

My goal at coming here to Kripalu was to take a break, a refresh.  I wanted to come and have a Day 1.  I knew that Kripalu had a great reputation and that they had incredible Yoga facilities but never in my life did I think that I would meet such influential people who would change my life. 

I have learned so much information about myself and healthy eating here.  It’s been amazing.  A few times, I actually got upset with myself for not already knowing the facts and figures on food but I soon learned to relish in the fact that I was learning lifelong skills that will help me forever.

My Journey

A few weeks ago, I made the decision to take my life back.  I was not sure what that would look like or who would help so I did a bit of soul searching online and found Kripalu.org – a center in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.  Kripalu was three hours west of Boston and I found an immersion program, “Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease”.  I signed up for the six day program and headed out west.

Little did I know that when I left there, I would be armed with the tools of living a healthy life.  This blog details my journey back to a healthy body.
