A Juicy Snapshot

Beetroot concoction 

Can you imagine how surprised I was when RP, my husband, suggested a week in Portugal at a JUICE retreat.... blimey I really thought he'd gone mad!

But to my delight we went, climbed the mountain, had colonics, drank the juice, got the t-shirts (and the books) AND most importantly came away feeling fabulous!

The day for me began at 6.20am with a swim in the lake with Janet, the most wonderful yoga teacher. Followed by yoga, a hike ( RP joined me at this point) and on our return we were greeted with our first juice of the day.... and wow this tasted good! All this and it was only 10.30am!! Then... exercise, juice, yoga, rest, juice, colonic, yoga, soup and bed!!

This was a hard but a fantastic week that energised me, cleansed me and really made me think about the home I live in.... my body!
