What is Yoga 308
Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 234 - Be OK
I feel like I have been doing a lot of focus in breaking old habits. I have been experimenting with a lot of things. One has been Meatless March. I had agreed to myself that I would not eat chicken or meat during the month of May. I have accomplished what I was looking for. There is a big part of me that says I only cut out chicken and meat. Technically I should not be eating eggs or fish. Instead of giving me props for doing what I set out for I like to find ways to be more demanding on myself. Like I should not feel proud for not eating beef or chicken for a whole month. My mind is very demanding. I am over this though. I am over the mind's shoulds and should not dos.
One thing I did notice was I ate fish and chips at the bowling alley last night. I have not been eating a lot of fried foods lately. This meal did havoc on my digestive system. I have been asked if I feel more healthy for eating less meat and chicken. I am not doing this for health reasons nor do I feel this outstanding breakthrough in feeling more powerful or healthy. I do however feel worst when I start trying to eat foods that are bad for me like fried food.
I am becoming more and more accepting of who I am in this moment. I have ultimate goals and ideas, but I first need to stay OK in the moment. Be happy with where we all are. Enjoy the life and smell in the clean air.
