90 Days of Yoga - Day 1 Summer Solstice

I am committed to doing 90 days of Yoga, and not asana's every single day, (but I will try) but living the Yoga lifestyle to the fullest. Living the Yamas and Niyamas, as well as eating healthy and reading good spiritual books. So what kicked off this commitment? Since the weather has been so nice I have found myself out and partying much too much. Yes, it was fun, but left me feeling empty and guilty inside. I don't like that feeling. That is not me any more. I want to get back to the earth and feel grounded, the way I do when I do my yoga and live a good life. Partying just brings shallow and wrong people into my life. Men with hearts so thin you could see right thru them. Friends that really aren't friends. When I did yoga it changed my life. It opens my heart. It makes good things happen to me.

So with that said, I really meant to go in the back yard as soon as I got home and do a summer solstice yoga, but I got side tracked thinking I needed a patio table, got one, stuffed it into the back of my car, yanked it out and yanked my back out. I bent over it for an hour putting it together. I got the zucchini and steak on the grill and once all was done and I got my chair back from Jasper who stole it, I sat in the back yard for the first time this year, and me and my manimals enjoyed the longest day of the year. We stayed out back till dusk. That was my yoga for the day. I know, lame. I will try to get up early and do yoga in the morning, if not, I will definitely do it when I get home tomorrow.
Today's yoga quote for day 1 - The intention is there in my heart. That is the beginning of my commitment.
