Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
It's a dull, drizzly day outside and nice and cozy inside. A slow day for me as my energy is still hibernating I guess. Doesn't it know that spring is finally here?! The past two days were just lovely and we walked and I sat in the sun and read and looked up into the brilliant blue sky lots and so enjoyed the warm sun on my face. I love nature. It moves me as does music and dance, good food, company and art. I am in a writing mood today.
Yesterday I cried. This is something I…Continue
Am not around here much yet but I can see that changing as I am gaining a bit of energy. I've had about 2 good days in the last week in which I can say my legs didn't feel quite so much like lead. I am hopeful that things will turn around for me.
I am doing 80-10-10 with no overt fats for the time being - for a couple more weeks anyway. My determination is growing with each day - to stick with this and truly do the 180' turn in my life.

Smoothie - 2 large celery, 3 bananas, 2 dates, 1 cup raspberries
1 piece jarred artichoke (this was a first for me) I was told they are very "laxative"
1 apple - an organic "Braeburn" - very good
lots of steamed broccoli
Ani Phyo's "Tomato Bisque" with cucumber added.
I know I didn't eat enough today. But that's what happens when I am too tired to make much and I was very satisfied anyway.
Slept better than I have for a while. Awake at 3:30 and got up at 5 a.m.
1st. thing: lemon water
2nd - whole grapefruit
3rd - green juice (kale, parsley, cuke, ginger and apples)
4th - smoothie of bananas, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, 2 large celery, 1 c. water.
5th - huge salad of romaine, iceberg, tomatoes, cuke, red onion and lots of broccoli with a delicious dressing with both olive oil and coconut oil etc.
I'd like to say a…Continue
This time around here at RFR I hope to make steady progress eating very high raw, if not 100%, while on my way back to health. This was about the 2nd worst winter of my life. I have never been so lacking in energy and I know it's not because I am 66. I've had many "flashbacks" to my childhood and have dreamed about people that I don't really remember dreaming about before and they were not good dreams. This must have been the result of my Mum's death. Without any energy I lost a lot…Continue
