No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Winding down from the holiday.
So thankful, I actually got extra hours next week. Hoping this holds thru this month, so I have the extra money to pay taxes and some bills looming.
Not able to eat as much raw as I would like right now so just doing the best I can. Sometimes there is just more money than month.
However, I am happy with my progress. I feel great!
I can truefully say, I made it through the holidays with no weight gain! Love it! So thrilled to find…Continue

Hey friends of the fruit!! Come check out my latest vid on an easy creamy pumpkin persimmon shake! Who needs pumpkin pie when you've got this mouth-watering, creamy alternative?
NIce quiet day today. Had a great holiday and now back to some routine before the next holiday hits.
Lots of things on my list of to do. Sewing things and working on scrapbooks.
Feels good to be going into the end of the year with things in order and getting things off my to do list.
Looking forward to a great new year in 2014.
This week has been a week off from the gym but plan on getting back at it asap.

This is one of the most relaxing Thanksgivings I have had. Everyone is coming here and it is nice not to have to drive out of town to get someplace. I love it!
Prep is done, just finishing up some laundry. Will clean the bathroom one last time and make sure it is in order and the rest of the day will be fun!
I plan to take some time to organize my recipes, finish filling out Christmas cards and work on some things for my business this evening after all the company is…Continue

So it is nice to be relaxed a bit the day before Thanksgiving. My prep work is nearly all done. I was shooting for that since i am working this evening. I will not be participating in black Friday and I have Thanksgiving off.
Very thankful for this choice. I don't like crowds and I don't need stuff.
I have done most all my shopping already except last minute food items I will purchase to go in stockings. Keeping it very simple this year and that is just the way I like…Continue
this is probably one of my favorites! I love adding cocoa and stevia and coconut milk to chia seeds and making a pudding.
I use 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds and mix it in a small cup. I always feeli like I am having a treat when I fix this. It is one of my all time favorites!
It is good to start the morning with because of the fiber. It makes me feel full and happy!
Sometimes I opt for a handful of nuts if I am in a hurry.
Then a bit later I may have a green…Continue

So getting ready for Thursday, prepping as much as I can early.
Not able to stay on track with as much raw as I would like. Resources are slim but doing what I can.
Have injured my back so resting today but will try to get to the gym later this evening.
Busy day, if I find that I am not feeling up to it I may give my back a rest and wait until tomorrow for the gym. I will at least do cardio though on my rebounder if nothing else. I do have some weights at home so may…Continue

Got alot done yesterday. Felt good to finally get things sorted and organized and ready ready for new homes in my sons room.
More things ready to go in Spring garage sale.
My focus this week is to totally organize this stuff, get my car in the garage, and then the next big hurdle, my sewing room and pictures for albums. This will be a much bigger project that will be ongoing. The goal is to decrease the amount of items by either sewing up what I have out there (quilts) and…Continue

Finally getting my son to go through his things and sort and cull out. He is at the age when the childhood items are no longer what he is interested in. He is decided what to keep for keepsakes and culling out the rest. He has grown so much that he needs new clothes again.
It is a good feeling to get all this done. It has been a year of thinning things out for us us all. Simplifying our lives and keeping only what is necessary.
The next couple of months will be a bit tough…Continue

I find that when I work out the first few weeks that I am sore I am ,more tired than usual. I have always noticed this. Not sure why that is but I guess it is just my body letting me know it needs more time to recover. by the third week, it resolves as the soreness goes away.
Finally feeling a bit rested up now. Good thing because I have alot on my agenda that I need to get done before going to work this weekend.
I am happy with my progress and continuing to keep high…Continue

Nearly have all my holiday shopping done. Looking forward to a relaxing time. House is nearly clean and feeling like I have things caught up for the most part. Don't want to stress at the last minute.
We are having about 9 people here so it is manageable and low key. Just the way I like it.
I do miss the big get togethers we used to have but our families have all gotten bigger and it is not feasable to do that anymore. We have gone to each of us having our own holiday…Continue

How do YOU handle the holidays?
I was feeling like I needed an extra detox/cleanse before the holidays. I've had more headaches in the last couple days. Perhaps my salt intake has been up a bit with the cooked vegan (low fat/high carb) dinners. Perhaps also due to the Halloween candy still laying around that has beckoned, and I've responded to slightly :(
Banana Island sounded too boring...
So a boost to inspire me to aim more raw…Continue

In my last post I was commenting on what wasn't working. I feel like GRAINS DON'T WORK FOR ME. Since Monday, the 18th, I have eaten NO GRAINS, and I have lost 2lbs. The puffiness has disappeared. I have even eaten some healthy, vegan, cooked foods...and still lost everyday. Mostly my food intake is raw.
I am enjoying eating meals with my hubby. He is feeling better everyday. He gives my vegetarian, healthy eating knowledge all the credit for his already…Continue

So I am sore from the gym but this will be my third workout and I am determined to be consistent. The first two weeks of an workout are always the toughest because you will in fact be sore because the routine is different.
Once you get past that, your body recuperates and begins building muscle and you get past the soreness.
Just have to tough it out and keep focused. My goal is to continue this workout for 90 days and check results. It is a different approach than I have…Continue
Getting things in order in my house and it feels great! Love it! I have cleaned out so much stuff over this past summer and now I am organizing everything else.
I like things working efficiently and I like them organized. It saves so much time.
We went and made decisions on my daughters senior pictures yesterday. Now to figure out how to pay for them. It is going to be a tough couple of months with taxes and senior stuff. However I only need a financial miracle!;o)
Almost everyone I know says how expensive it is to eat a raw vegan, somewhat organic diet.
So I'm on a mission... to find out if it's possible to do it for $10 a day!
✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿
Calories for the Day ~ 3171
✿ Carbs ~ 91%
✿ Fat ~ 5%
So taking a new approach today.
In changing my attitude. I am going to do something I think will be revolutionary for my journey. So for the remainder of my second health focus session, I will experiment with this idea.
I have always believed in positive affirmations so I am making specific ones today that I will read everyday before I get out of bed and before I go to sleep at night.
I read a saying last night that I thought was really great.

I will be so thankful when I no longer have to work at this job and can work my business instead.
I really hate talking on the phone for so many hours. It is hard on my jaw. I am looking for another job that would not require constantly talking but as of yet nothing has come through. Frustrating, because I can not get enough hours at my current job to really survive financially and nothing else seems to be working out.
I know God has a plan for my life but I honestly feel…Continue
