Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
well folks...here I am..It was a busy Easter weekend but we got through. It was sad and my husband and I spent quite a bit of it in tears. But I am thankful for the tears....the tears of pain and sorrow mean that I have a heart of love and that I loved my baby girl so deeply and for that I am forever grateful.
Today is day one....and my hubby has decided to join me! we have both taken a road of unhealth and seeking comfort in food. We have both admitted that we have come far from…Continue
I think I am going to kickstart this lifestyle upgrade with a fast. I think 4 days juicing, water, herbal tea...and then slowly add raw foods back in after that...yep....I think thats what I am going to do. My husband is home tonight till monday, so he can be there and help out if the detox gets nuts. I have fasted before and it doesnt take long for crap to start pouring out of our bodies. Heres to hoping. So I am not going to say starting tommorow, because then I will put it…Continue
Well...I am here...and I am ready ...baby steps...one breath at a time..I am here.
I wanted to list some of the physical and mental issues that I am having going on, and that I hope to heal with a healthy lifestyle change and mostly raw foods.
*weight gain. I am now 245 lbs. that number makes me a little sick.
* extreme heart burn
* extreme flushing of the face . My face goes really really hot and bright red.
* body aches and pains. every joint
Good eve...I look at the date that I last posted here and I cringe. Tears well up in my eyes and throat and I think..wow ....
July 28th was the last day I posted. My week got busy, so I didnt get on here the rest of that week. then August 8th my entire world fell apart. My 2yo little girl passed away....emily-rose drowned in our pool. It was an awful day. Its been an awful 6 months. But by the grace of God I dont know what I would have done. Without the love and support of family…Continue
Good Morning guys. I feel pretty great. yesterday was a rain day here on the farm and we spent most of it hanging out together here....reading and playing board games. Needless to say I didnt get on here. Yesterday food wise went well, I mean I wasnt 100% but I ate the most amazing vegan dinner, and I am pretty sure my tastebuds are stil surprised. The bulk of it was Quinoa, which I have never tried cooking before. Amazing how it turned out. Awesome. I remeber trying it before and not liking…Continue
I hope that this finds my fellow raw foodies doing amazing. I want to thank you all for your support and your cheers..truly ..its amazing.
So here we are another day two, but I figure at least I am here. I am starting the day with water....as I always do...and I am feeling alright.
I had a cooked dinner last night of blue potatoes and onions from our garden, but it was vegan and I feel good about it. I dont feel like I am biting to much off where its not…Continue

I am kicking myself as well , because I felt soooooo good all last week and now last night when I got home...it was alll back to where I was. I have discovered that I cannot let myself go even a little ...it was almost like m mind was saying , you did great all week, you deserve this...you dont need to worry about your food choices becuase you feel so good.…Continue
That was a weird night, let me tell you. I am currently sitting here drinking a big jug of water and lemon because I was day dreaming about it for the last hour as I lay in bed...Thats weird..but the weirdest part was last night.....I went to bed about 9pm , got undressed hopped into bed like I normally do. I remebered as I lay there that I didnt water the tomatoes, but I thought I would get up in a little bit and do it. My brain was trying to tell me I was tired because that is what it…Continue
Well here we are...I cant say that I feel great, but I also cant say I feel badly either. My eyes are really sore, itchy and sticky and I am having ALOT of BMs. I know to much information, but I figure maybe someone else needs to hear this as much as I need to document it. Anyway 2/3 meals today were raw and dinner was simple and I feel good about it. It felt nice to be conscious of what I was putting in my mouth , so even the things that were not raw I was thinking about .
Well its day two, and I was up at 6am! like actully just got up. Is that normal for only the second day. I read that there would be energy increases but really? is this even happening. The craziest of it though is that I got up craving ...and I mean CRAVING an apple. <insert look of complete confusion here> . So I am here....eating an apple....at 6am....I suppose to see how weird this is, you would have to know me? Anyway, I am looking forward to another day. I am excited in fact,…Continue
Well it was a good day one. Not bad at all. I feel alright. Aside from a mild headache I am alright. I feel pretty motivated at this point that I can do this and I only pray that it sticks . it will stick.
Today looked like this...
Breakfast : Chocolate Vega with 1 cup of frozen strawberries made into a smoothie. I also had a berry green tea to help with the caffiene withdrawal that I was going through.
Lunch : ALOT of Green Beans from the garden in a…Continue

I slept amazing last night. I went to bed feeling a little bit hungry , but I decided that I just wanted to give my belly a rest...and I must say that last night was the first night in awhile were nightmares werent abound. I slept well...and woke this morning feeling alright. I have…Continue
I joined here awhile ago, and promptly forgot about it. I started making changes in my life and wanting to put some time in on me and it quickly fell to the side. I am really not good at making time for me , even if it is for my health. There were alot of things going on in my life, that it wasnt the right time for me to jump into anything else...well now its become a must not a want. My health has taken a turn for the worse and for a 33 yo woman I really shouldnt feel this old.Feeling old…Continue
