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 357 - Eating Raw food day 3

Sill trying to get downward dog right.  I am still being schooled by the puppy Boomer.

Today was my day off from yoga and a very lazy day.  I did get a chance to write down a lot of my ideas and thoughts, and structure some of my future plans.  Thank you Marianne for listening to all these thoughts. 

This is day 3 of the 30 day raw diet.  I am still rolling through this pretty easily.  I am pretty much doing this one solo, but it does help to have Marianne guide me through it.  I purchssed a lot of things at Whole Foods that were already prepared, I am borrowing a juicer and juicing, and I have learned how to make raw chocolate.  The raw chocolate will be the key to making it through my month.

I think it is crazy how much money I spent on raw food.  I spent good over $200 to prepare for this.  The best foods we could put in our bodies cost much more then the fast food crap that is constantly being marketed to us.  There really is something wrong with our society.  It makes sense for a commercialism society to make food as cheap as we can and sell it at a low price.  I do not blame giant corporations from doing this.  This is ultimately the American dream.  The original Mcdonalds had this American dream, and figured out a way to make a lot of money.  I do not think they intended to contribute to the death and diseases they brought onto the U.S. and the rest of the world.

What I blame is us.  Each one of us including me for accepting this.  For continuing to justify that fast food and processed food is OK to put in our body.  We can always come up with a reason to continue to eat crap, but come on people.  We put the blame on fast food as if we have no control over eating it.  We all know how to make this change.  Simply stop eating crap and start eating good food.

I have come up with a way to justify my $200 spending.  This is not only an investment in myself, but also I will not be going out to eat much at all over the next 30 days.   The dollar value meal is one more reason to live an unhealthy life.  Make the switch today.  Look back at the older blogs.  I started with one or two days changing my diet from what I thought was unhealthy to something I believe is a healthy diet.
