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 347 - Don't Super Size Me, Down Size Me

Nothing like puppy kisses

I felt very productive today.  Had a great day at work which followed by an at home yoga session.  I went through a lot of the Ashtanga primary series today.

I keep mentioning how I am very excited for the things I am doing in my life and the things that keep coming into my life.  The adventure really is what is going to be around the corner next.  This excitement is sometimes what keeps me from living in the now.

I was thinking today about the documentary "Super Size Me."  I am sure you are familiar with Morgan Spurlock's experiment of eating Mcdonald's every day for 30 days.  It showed the catastrophic effects of what Fast Food is doing to our bodies and our mind.  After watching it I think many of us decided to stay away from fast food.  Why is it though that we know in our hearts that if we did the opposite and ate healthy for 30 days we could better and maybe even save our lives.  Why are we not interested in this movie?  We continue to eat fast food or also justify that we are eating the healthy way.

I am my number one experiment.  I am planning on doing a lot more experiments with my eating habits to see what happens to me and how I feel.  I feel like the only thing that can happen is that I could gain some health benefits.  Next week I will start a 30 day Raw diet.  I am excited to see how I feel after 30 days.

I feel like the path that I am on has built me into a healthier me.  I am thankful for everything that has put me on this path and have several ideas to share in the near future.
