Good Day

Hey all! Hope you are all having an amazing day! Today I am doing great! The sun is out for the first time in weeks and it feels great! I haven't been doing "super good" but I've been doing well. I have stopped stressing over all that I do wrong and I'm just enjoying eating more raw and more healthy. I tell you what, it's a HUGE difference. I've been so much happier the last week or so. I'm no longer stressing about my weight and I'm staying active. The hubs and I have agreed to work out…

My 54th Day of Living Well

Here is the latest entry from my personal blog...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I I am now exactly 54 days into my brand new lifestyle. I hardly know where to begin in describing all the changes that have taken place in April and May. As we stand on the edge of entering June, I am kicking it off with a 10 day juice fast, or, as some people call it, a juice FEAST. And why not? You get to drink as much green juice as you need or…

Peeps, we be rawkin'!

Motivation sky high! I don't know where it came from, but I'm happy it's back.

  • Super high raw this weekend, possibly even 100%.
  • Started a juice feast today. So far, no prob.
  • Hiked 3-4 mi. with an RFR friend this afternoon, then did the first workout of Week 5 of the Couch to 5K program, aiming to run (or at least run part of) a 5K in Boston on June 18 and another one in NYC on June 19. Me? Run a 5K? Stranger things have happened, I suppose!
  • Also joined…

Dealing With Anger and Spiritual Healing with Dan McDonald

I am so freakin' angry today. It doesn't matter what the reason is. What matters is that it hurts....on a deep dark level there is pain. I needed this video more than I can say today. Maybe you do too....

Go FRESH - Days 58-61

One good thing (at least) came from this weekend…I got to spend time with family and checked off a few chores from the ole ‘to-do’ list.


We started out early Saturday to run errands, so I made a green smoothie & a green juice for the trip (I enjoyed the smoothie, but the juice was forgotten throughout the day…sigh).  


The first stop was the hospital (routine checkup for my son) and was quick.  The second was at the farmers’ market.  Despite the spinach guy…

Raw Reality

I'm thinking that I need to reboot rather slowly and keep things uncomplicated. Apple Carrot Celery Kale juice and Rejuvelac.

Yesterday I did more swimming than I've done in years.  It still wasn't much, but it was more and it felt really good.  We're back home now, and my husband is starting his new job tomorrow!  It's a contract that could turn into full-time and he is still interviewing.  I don't know if I shared this yet here, but I'm still absorbing the whole concept that things are starting to get better.  I've been in such a strange state of stress for so many years, and while we aren't out of the woods yet,… Continue

Surprise news: Green smoothies come to my neighbourhood!

And they're not just mine! 

This past Saturday was opening day for our local Farmer's Market. It was so nice to see everyone again after our long, long winter!  I spent a little time talking to Gilberte, the woman who runs a small organic farm just a bit up the coast. She told me she's working more with youth this year, in…

Veggie tip!

To keep your leafy greens fresher longer in the fridge, try this! put a paper towel loosely over the container and lay the cover on top. Do not seal cover. The paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.

Day 16 of my Go Fresh Countdown.

As I tend to do when I have things I enjoy, I decided to have the same as what I had yesterday. But to mix it up I decided to put all the ingredients of the most delicious juice  I have ever had, into the Vita Mix and make a smoothie of it instead.  It is amazing how it could taste so different. The juice seemed to taste more pure. Anyway, I had to add some Star Fruit to get rid of the bitterness and make it more palatable. Will stick to the juice with that recipe.

I had a really…

(gulp) Juice Feast Anyone?

Heya RFR peeps...I've been yearning to do a juice feast, am really wanting to reign my raw boat back on course, and last time I did a juice feast in January it was exactly the ticket I needed to get back on track. Problem is, for whatever reason, this time through I've been struggling with the true and honest start of this endeavor... I've heard and read that the new moon on June 1 would be an ideal time to start...anyone else interested?

Into Week 9 and catching up on posting!

Here we are into Week 9!  I'm feeling really good about the fact that I've stuck with this for over 2 months now.  I will take some updated progress picture this week, and take my measurements again.  I feel my clothing getting looser, but the photos and the measurements seem to really drive it home for me.

One of the reasons I haven't been posting is that I haven't been feeling good physically or emotionally this week.  I have fibromyalgia and am fairly certain that I have a great…

Always wash your greens whether they are triple washed or not!

I watched a show on tv about a woman who fed her kids some salad- it was triple washed- so she figured it was ok.  I won't go into what happened to one of her daughters but it was not good and it took several years  and hospitalizations to get over it. 


So I just want to encourage everyone to really wash those greens before eating- use enough water to get them really really clean - even if they are already washed or if they are organic or whatever.


That is my…

this $%%%#&^^%^ scale!!!!!!

I just realize that my scale is not really working. I do everuthing on earth possible to get this initiative working and yes the weight doesn't really go down. This morning (after a juiced sunday) I weight more that I should've. So I weight myself like 1 minute fater an I was 2 kilos down, then 1 minute after 3 kilos up....I don't want to buy another one now....the kind of stuff I can buy is limited on the island where I live I'll have to go to a big city for that otherwise I'll get the same…

Good Work!

I did really well yesterday, and I actually feel smaller this morning.  Using nutridiary is very helpful to keeping me on track and realistic about what I am eating.  I'm more motivated to behave well, and with each day I feel and see results, I'll be more motivated!

Day 17 of my Go Fresh Countdown.

All going to plan today. All raw and all liquid.

Thank you Donna, Mae and Penni for the well wishes and support. I will be drawing on this in my weak moments. Knowing that you are doing LOTS of liquids too Penni will make it easier.

Today I started with warm water with lemon juice and ginger.

Breakfast was my version of the Ani Phyo's Oaxaca Inspiration and that kept me going right through to the afternoon so I just drank water all day.

My inspiration for my…

Where is the disconnect?

Allllllllright. I've had it!


I have been on a raw food lifestyle rollercoaster for about a year now. My motivation and commitment was sky high last summer when i joined the Revealing Your Inner Rawkstar initiative here at the hab. I was able to ride that train for about a week before i began to stumble. I've successfully committed to the raw food lifestyle in the past, but for the last two years have been using my pregnancy and now breastfeeding as an excuse as to why it's…
