Docs. orders to take three days off to heal my back. Lot of pain but is doing better now. I was aggrevating by continuing to ride/walk etc. So taking it easy and relaxing at my wonderful friends house. So nice here in Arizona. Like a paradise of warmth in the winter from my friends and the weather. Hope all of you are doing well. Merry Christmas early and may you enjoy a prosperous New Year to come in 2012.

I've been having some real issues with being raw since Hurrican Irene here (Aug 28). It really isn't related much to the hurricane, but that is the day that marks the start of my slipping. Rather than share my insights into why I've been floundering, I'm just saying here in a public place, that I'm back ON, and moving away from the mindless eating, I'm reading the book No Complaining Rule, and generally noticing that my dreams are pulling me back to a place I want to occupy.
It's been quite a while since i've chimed in here in the blog-zone - though I've been happy to be participating here and there in the Hab and in the Vault - and loving being raw - a year and a half now!
Just had to jump in today to share this with you guys. It's one of those 'bad news... no wait good news' kind of stories.
My son, aged 25, lost his job and is also in need of a new place to live. At the moment he is occupying my couch on an occasional basis…Continue

Owie, today I woke up with INTENSE arthritic pain and all night I felt like I was sleeping right on top of a boulder!! :) I know the smiley looks a little out of place there but it helps me see things in the positive to put it there and not dwell on the negative, plus I think humor is very helpful in dealing with hard stuff. :) Anyway I am experiencing one of the worst PMS's like I said before, since eating dairy. I've even lost my appetite for the most part, which is something I only did…Continue
This morning I decided to end my entries of my food intake. As I can see I eat the same food everyday and I am quite happy with my routine. Dont want to flood around here as we all have our precious time
I noticed that I cut down on nuts which is pleasant! And I need to cut down on cooked food.
The plan ahead is to finish off with my birthday and office xmas lunch, its all next week, and go to complete detox…Continue
Really not fun!!! I weighed today and I am up 3 pounds since I started the cleanse...... Not really happy about that. Even after Thanksgiving..... which I ate 1 small plate of traditional meal... I did not gain anything. Now 4 days into the cleanse I am consistently up 3pounds. I am not really eating that much either.…Continue

I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot on here. I just moved to So Cal from Florida back in September. I've mainly just been trying to adjust. I've moved twice since I've been here and I might be moving again, anyways that's not why I'm writing. I've been struggling with remaining raw mainly because of convenience. I've actually been wanting to juice but don't own a juicer I'm looking for a juice bar close to here or even a juicer that's cheap like under…Continue
So today started out okay though I still had that major headache that began yesterday. I ended up staying home today which was not good because I see that I do better with my eating when I am busy. So back to work tomorrow.
Once I got out of bed and my stomach was growling, I decided to try a smoothie for today. Very interesting concoction that I dreamt up. Into my blender I put some water, 2 bananas, some frozen blueberries and…Continue
I have been sleeping all day, hence the super late entry!!!!
Yesterday...argh I don't even want to talk about it but I have to for future eating purposes so it doesn't happen again, I had the worst bowel issues! Okay not the worst, but lets just say I kept having to go to the bathroom and the stool looked like sick people stool, I hope I am not coming down with something. I also had the very worst gas. I am wondering if its all the onions I have been eating--so I've been…Continue
Hi everyone, I sort of lessened my raw intake to the lowest it's been for the past few years. I've had several issues that are making it harder. One was just eating at all was hard because of some stomach issues I was having. They got a tiny bit better for awhile and I finally started craving raw things again. Hopefully for a longer period of time this time. I have a lot of issues with strong flavors and greens can be unappealing at times. I also don't have as much access to fresh produce as…Continue

Yesterday was MY day one. I had some company come visit (My guys family) and while they are very supportive in my life style, I wanted to make sure I had a clear head on when I started my cleanse. I have made some really good decisions while they were here, and it was great to be able to do that, but now, I am getting my cleanse on! Yesterday was pretty much AWESOME!!!
16 oz Orange and ginger juiced
16 oz carrot and apple juiced
16 oz beet, apple, celery…Continue
So on the Day 2 which was Friday I have prepared to eat cooked food, as we went all the way to my husband relatives for little engagement party of my cousin in law.
I had my smoothie in the morning with banana, beet greens and pears.
Had my lunch avocado tomatoes salad with linseed oil and garlic/onions.
And dinner I had there, and it was biriyani, karahi with naan bread.
And or boy how sick I was!!! I was almost in tears, my stomach…Continue

3. I am amazed at how I have grown up in the past 20 years!
Getting up this morning, I went on a 30-minute powerwalk, being empowered by my favorite music on my iPod. After finishing my walk, I enjoyed some soothing herbal tea after drinking 2 glasses of water with lemon slices. Feeling a little pinch on my right side – thinking maybe sciatica but I wasn’t going to let that stop me on my first day!
Taking my day-before-prepared juices in tow, I headed to work. Difficult being…Continue
