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 315 - Healthy raw potluck

 Raw vegan chili

Today was my day off from yoga.  This was my fourth day in the raw vegan diet.  I had a potluck tonight with about 12 people.  Everyone made a raw recipe, and it was surprisingly awesome.   I made the chili shown above.  Before starting the raw diet I thought that it would be a lot of carrots and nuts. It sounded like it would be 7 days of hell.  The chili I made really tasted like chili. Other friends made things like sushi, lasagne, a tuna like salad, and some great desert.  This is the second day that I am really excited on what I ate for dinner.

Marianne mentioned to me on how much our lives have changed.  15 years ago I would have had a keg and a bag of pretzels, now I have people who are trying to be healthy.  We all have different thoughts and ideas about it, but we all have a strive to become healthy.  I like the group of people that I am around.

I did feel a little weak this afternoon.  I had not eaten a lot in the morning, and I was doing a lot of yard work outside.  I felt a little dizzy, but stopped and went in to eat something.  It is really important to continue to eat throughout this whole week.  When I do yoga I need to keep in mind that I am doing a detox, and I will probably not be able to be at my full potential.
