"Crimes of opportunity"?

Posted on April 5, 2011 at 7:57am 12 Comments

What to you do when facing what I call  a 'crime of opportunity'. It's not always about time or convenience!  

There's got be a better way to handle a poor food choice, and I should analyze why I ate it in the first place.  I remember thinking,   "Oh,  xxxxx won't hurt after all it's only the first, second ,or you get the picture, day of the week/initiative and weigh in day is xxx days away."  I have just given myself permission to eat something that I shouldn't eat.  

I need…


Remembering Why

As many of you know I'm a private person and blog very infrequently, but maybe this will resonate with you.  Instead of losing weight on this initiative I seemed to be spiraling up, until I started the February cleanse.  Now it's at least headed in the right direction and knowing I'm going to a Super Bowl Party today, I decided to review why I started all this.  Yes weight loss is up there, wellness also, and to stay healthy all were my primary reasons.  But the subtle things have started to…


A little help here!!

A little help here!! Got a dinner out with my lovely mother-in-law and when she wants to go to Longhorn Steak house, we go. Reviewing their menu where I am in TN shows a cole slaw and a mixed green salad. Any suggestions for me to stay raw?

My wheatgrass is ready!!

Ok, I planted these the 1st of February but I did it in an area that stays just above freezing so it didn't grow too fast.

Promptly juiced an ounce (around noon) and drank it like a shot of tequila. Whew, that is one strong shot of health. I may dilute the next shot down a bit :- )

I'm open to ideas on how best to add this to my regime. I have no health issues except weight and eyesight. I only want to add more greens to my raw journey, and I would love to…

The only things you can control are:

how you think and speak,what you do:  what you eat, what you drink, when you move your body, when you sleep. 

Master these things positively and you will be amazed at the changes that will come into your life!  Let this be your year to SHINE!!
