2012 Week 1: Yoga, Mermaid Cafe and Kombucha Challenge

January 8, 2012

I can’t believe we’re one week into 2012.  It either feels like it was just New Year’s Eve, or like it’s been 2012 for months.  This week has been full. Back to work after a week away, drinking kombucha every day. On Thursday I went to a yoga class with my coworkers, which is our new (amazing) weekly ritual.  It was especially fitting after seeing this hilarious video for the first (and subsequent 20) time.

I also had the privilege of taking some pictures at the Mermaid Cafe, to accompany an upcoming review in the Isthmus.

I’m really excited to have some of my images in the Isthmus!  I’ll post the review when it hits the presses, which should be sometime soon.  It was such an honor to be asked, and I am just thrilled to have some of my images published.  If you have a chance, you should head over to the Mermaid sometime soon.  Their dinner menu is rocking.

I’ve also been sticking to my 30 Day Kombucha Challenge, drinking kombucha every day.  It has been great!  I drink about 8oz/day, in the late afternoon or evening.  To be completely honest, I wasn’t expecting to notice any differences in just one week.  However, I actually have! The biggest change has been the disappearance of my sugar cravings.

Before this week I used to crave sugar, big time.  As in, I believe I had a sugar addiction.  I would crave sugar throughout the day, deep and intense cravings that would have me rooting around cupboards or deep into the freezer for something to scratch my sweet tooth’s itch.  Since drinking kombucha every day, they have completely disappeared.  It’s kind of surreal.  I can’t believe that a small glass of delicious, bubbly kombucha can make such a fast and total difference.  It’s been wonderful.

My tolerance for kombucha has also gone up over the last week.  The first day I drank about 6oz and had a little bit of a tummy ache afterward.  Now I’ve upped my daily dose to 8oz and feel great after each glass, energized and satiated. I’m going to stick with 8-10oz for the next week, and maybe up it to 12oz for the last couple weeks of the month.  I feel very lucky to have been sponsored by the fabulous folks at NessAlla!   I’ve been making sure to drink enough water, as kombucha is also highly detoxifying. Can’t wait to see what changes I’ll notice over the next 7 days. I’ll be sure to report back my progress. 🙂

I hope you’ve had a good past 7 days!

Cheers,

Stephanie
