Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Today was a good day. I've decided to ease my way back into 90% raw instead of trying to jump in head first. I'm learing not to be so hard on myself, thanks to all who responded to my request for support. It's so great to know that others are on this journey with me experiencing some of the same challenges.
So today I had my 32oz green smoothie this morning, egg salad on sprouted grain bun, and I went to a kiddie b-day party at Chuckie Cheese's so I had 2 small slices of pizza a a…Continue
My digital camera was doing wacky things until this evening, so I wasn't able to take my first month's progress pictures today. I will do that tomorrow, and post my new measurements and overview of my first month on GO FRESH!
Today, I was very sad to discover that for some reason, my pomegranate tree died. The bark all around the bottom of the tree was scraped and cut, so I'm not sure if it was an animal, and I'm hoping it's not a person. The tree likely died because it was…Continue
I forgot to write anything yesterday for the 60 day milestone, so I'm doing a day 61 blog today. So here are my thoughts after 61 days on nothing but fresh home made fruit and vegetable juices.
Physically I feel great still. I got worried about calories a couple of weeks ago. I'm doing quite a bit of fruit in my juices now to keep the calories up. I'm doing 9 to 12 apples and 3 or 4 lemons and a pound or so of carrots a day in my juice. I still do 2 pounds of dark leafy…Continue
It's almost May 1st! I think this start of a new month, lined right up with start of a new week, can be a great opportunity to take a new step forward.
I'm starting a detox with lots of juices and smoothies.
If you're hitting the reset button too, what are you planning to do?
Well today I was not happy posting in the weight room that I gained all the weigh back that I lost the week before. Even though it is really only a couple of lbs. I felt my perfectionist tendencies trying to take over. But I am focusing on what I want and moving on. This is a new week after all and a week that does not include company, eating out, entertaining or Easter.
Todays food was great aside from a mere few bites non raw it was all raw and included:
Hi friends ~ The GO FRESH Initiative is well underway and I thought I'd do a scan of what's fresh and new in my life since we began 30 days ago. Today I cleaned out my fridge. This is one of my least favorite house keeping activities, I tend to just put things in the fridge, and hope for the best, make space as I can and take out the science experiments as needed. But hey I love my fresh sparkling greens and colorful veggies, I cherish the raw energy I receive from them, so I realized it was…Continue
My sweet 5 month old pup loves smoothies! At first I was worried she would be afraid of the sound of the vitamix but she sat on my foot this morning as I whirled together my breakfast of pineapple, carrot juice and spinach. Then she followed me outside to watch me water the garden while I sipped my drink. Honestly, she is very well behaved for her age and has never begged for people food...until today. I gave her some and she loved it.
Then a few hours later I was eating a…
Today I went through all the clothing here at my parents' place for my kids and for my husband and I. It was amazing to see the clothing I had up there because some of it was from 2007-8. I know that I had lost weight since that time, but I didn't realize how huge my clothing was then until I went through all this stuff here. I probably lost about 15 lbs since 2008, and I don't give myself any credit for that. I think that is partially because I cannot let myself believe just how big I…Continue
Finally finally I am sitting down with a pad and paper to write down all of everyone's wonderful Go Fresh recipes that jump out at me! I admit that lack of time and dedication has stopped me from doing this earlier but there's no time like the present. Working off a little Netbook & no printer has made it a little hard too, but no more excuses. I'm really having fun with this. I've dedicated a good chunk of the day to this today and feel like this will be a huge help for me ~ woohoo…Continue
A little before Go Fresh ends, I will be traveling in Asia for a couple weeks (Taiwan) and then settling in Nepal for a year. I'm feeling a little anxious about not having as much control over my diet and about missing my greens, in particular. This kind of negative projecting onto the future is also making me lose focus/feel like giving up with respect to my diet in the present. I have begun to stray from my Go Fresh plan to do close to 100% raw and lots of juicing... so I've been…Continue
Everything I do is for the higher good of all concerned.
Everything I say is a sincere promise.
Honesty is a value that I honor every day.
I accept total responsibility for my actions.
I act professionally at all times.

My name is Claire and I am a compulsive overeater.
I am really not sure how I got here again - actually no, I know exactly how I got here again - I started to think that I could eat some of this or that and it wouldn't hurt and that all will be OK!
Guess what this and that turned into a whole load of junk with all of my emotions and stable eating junked along with it.
I am returning back to what I know works - A plan of eating and sharing it…Continue
In only eight hours from right now, I will be on my way to Sacramento to participate in …Continue

TWO: STRESS IS EVERY THING…Continue
I am way behind on posting due to a very busy week because of family responsibilities, but it's been a good kind of busy!
I'll be writing more on my thoughts about the first month in my next post, where I'll be adding new photos and all of my updated measurements, but mainly wanted to get caught up on my food log.
A few of you have asked about my raw futomaki recipe, and I'll be adding that to the recipe section this weekend! :)

I find Bogging everyday very helpful to keep me on track, focused and accountable. I have missed a few day but I'm back now...
I've had company and that always throws me off. Food wise things could be better but I have been trying the best under the ccircumstances- with the company I have had quite a few restaurant salads in the past few days. Tonight we are having dinner at my sisters- she is making something cooked vegan but there will also be salad and I made a raw dip so I…Continue
