Sometimes you just need to challenge yourself. And sometimes that challenge can give you direction.
As you may know I have been trying to turn a health conscious corner and overall it has been a very positive experience. There have been slips here and there and it hasn’t been easy to cut my calories back to 1200 a day and no bread, few carbs and little sugar. Like I said I haven always been able to stick to it. But I have been way more active and that alone makes me feel great! I feel though a lack of direction which makes sticking to it hard. So I picked up a book I bought last year and re read it. And you know it resonated more with me now than it had before.
So if you love yoga then you know that there is a lot more to it than just the poses that we do in a class setting. There is an internal component that works towards balance and harmony through both body and mind. It is about being present and aware internally and externally. Meditation and breath work are ways in which there are achieved along with the poses that are commonly known. This book is about making a holistic change, mind and body. I find this appealing as it gives a deeper sense of direction, something that I could use.
So over the next 28 days I will be sharing my experience with Yogalosophy. I am NOT endorsing or recommending ANY diet or exercise as I am not in a position to know what is best for you. It is more my hope that you may be inspired or even find comforter commonality in my struggles. It is also recommend to journal during this process so I though why not share it!
It is very common for “yogis” to be vegetarian or vegan. This is an aspect I’ve never explored before so I have choose the meal plan that is vegetarian. It also is a cleans as it eliminates sugars, caffeine and most carbs. So wish me luck and get ready for an interesting ride!
