My app informed me once again that I made two marathons this month of 2016 - accumulated, of course :-) - 84K this December.

Watermelons are still good.

I started studying Yoga when I was 17 with Patanjali Yoga Sutras in various translations, and then read tons of book on various traditions in Yoga (Hatha, Pranayama, Kundalini, etc). First, I would like to present to you my personal compact version / interpretation of the 8 limbs of Yoga योग.

Yoga Sutras are based on atheistic philosophy Samkhya, an orthodox (Astika) and atheistic hindu system of dualism.

Nishi Shiki was invented in 1927 by Katsuzō Nishi, the chief engineer for the Tokyo subway and an aikido teacher.

Most of my life I followed the first four rules every day, and substituted the rest with yoga asanas. 

On most mornings I do all or some of the exercises and postures on this list, all slightly modified for my needs over the years, some named for convenience - I used to memorize the best sequence this way. I used to start with Surya Namaskara, but lately I've been leaving it out. 

1) cut tomatoes and avocados 2) eat out of a measuring cup :)

For days I had the same: oranges, and then tomatoes with avocado, with occasional grapes or apples. It is around 6-8 pounds or ~ 3-4 kg (bulk), $5-7 a day, buying smartly in California.

What are you guys having these days?

Unexpectedly, the Sun went out, and I was happy all the way to the pool, in it, and back.

7K Walking (total), 1.5K swimming.

This is me, Lena, in the bright Californian sunlight after a swim.

He should not kill a living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should he incite another to kill. Do not injure any being, either strong or weak, in the world.
