Fitness for Self Realization
January 2020

Yoga Sutra 2.41
Also through cleanliness and purity of body and mind (shaucha) comes a purification of the subtle mental essence (sattva), a pleasantness, goodness and gladness of feeling, a one-pointedness with intentness, the conquest or mastery over the senses, and a fitness, qualification, or capability for self-realization..”.
Cleanliness of mind, spirit and body will bring about the capability or fitness to become a self realized being.
As in building the foundation to be physically fit requires specific training of the body, to become a Self Realized being requires purification of mind, spirit and body. For instance if the mind wanders into self deprivation reverse those thoughts into the knowledge of the good you know yourself to be capable of. Eat with intention, taking time to fast or eat clean on occasion. Use yoga to release blocks in the body. These are examples of how purification of mind, spirit and body prepares you for to become a better more enlightenment being.

Lame Excuses for Not Eating Healthy

Health Food Is Too Expensive

This is not entirely true. If you are looking at sheer volume of food to fill up your belly then sometimes it is more expensive to purchase healthy food. If you are looking at price per nutrient then junk food can be more expensive. And it’s not just the quality nutrients that health food offers either, think about what ingredients you’re avoiding; saturated fat, MSG, excess sodium, sugar, food coloring and preservatives for starters. Consider this example with one large sweet potato. It costs around 45 cents, you get 7 grams of fiber, 769% of your vitamin A, 65% of your vitamin C and approximately 180 calories. A medium order of french fries from a popular fast food restaurant costs $1.79, offers 3 grams of fiber, zero vitamin A , 6% of your vitamin C and 230 calories. The expense excuse is only convenient if you don’t want it bad enough to think through the options and make the right choices.

Eating Healthy Takes Too Much Time

  1. It takes at least 25 minutes to get in your car, drive to the fast food joint, order your meal, wait to pick it up, pay for it and drive back home to eat it.

  2. It takes 95 seconds to walk into your kitchen, open the refrigerator, grab the chicken salad, spread it on a piece of whole grain bread, sit down and eat it.

  3. It takes the same amount of time to heat up a frozen entrée regardless of the ingredients and there are numerous healthy frozen entrée options.

  4. All grocery stores now carry produce already washed, chopped and bagged up for you so the time excuse won’t work here.

  5. It’s just as quick to grab and eat a piece of fruit as it is to grab and eat a pack of cookies.

Life’s Too Short, Eat What You Want

Life will be even shorter if you have a steady diet junk foods. Don’t forget that obesity is the leading cause of preventable death after smoking.
Make sure you’re not depriving yourself so much you become a food binge waiting to happen.
Allow yourself periodic cheat days to kill the cravings that can kick into overdrive if you deny yourself for too long.
Life is short and it’s unreasonable to expect that you will never put another morsel of sugar or saturated fat into your mouth. The key is moderation. Think of the 80/20 rule. Aim for eating healthy nutritious foods 80% of the time and 20% of the time you can have the more decadent treats.

I Don’t Know How and I Don’t Have the Resources

If you’re the kind of person that likes someone spelling it out for you step by step then this website is for you. provides you with weekly shopping lists and meal plans based on your family size and dietary goals.
It generates the shopping list based on your local grocery store of choice and the sales for that week. Best of all no food is wasted because all meals are strategically planned utilizing what you purchased at the store that week. It’s a shame when food goes to waste because you never got around to preparing that healthy meal? Check it out.

January Pose of the Month
Half Frog with TearDrop Support

The TearDrop Support Cushion is the most effective, comfortable support cushion available anywhere.
It’s unique design ensures that each body part is cradled with gentle compressive force.
When using the Teardrop with half frog. you would place the Teardrop just off the mat on the right side usually half way down from the top of the mat. Lie on your tummy, then place the right bent knee on top of the high part of the cushion. (The knee can be parallel with the hip, advanced option higher than the hip, moderate option lower than the hip). Turn the head to the right and place arms in the cactus position by stretching arms out like the letter T, then bend your elbows so they are even with the shoulders, and hands even with the elbows. Hold for 3 to 5 minutes, (shorter or longer times based on your own needs), then switch to the left side.
