Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
So silly I feel about my last entry. Sheer paranoia!!!! I started my period as usual and I'm totally fine! Oof!! Silly, SILLY silly silly SILLY. I can't even believe how emotional I can get sometimes. I've always been like this--just a roller coaster, no matter what diet I've eaten, although I admit I've definitely noticed I achieve more emotional balance when I'm eating an abundance of greens, and it ain't the case right now!! :P I'd like to make it a goal to eat at least 5 pounds of…Continue
It's so weird to be in a relationship and to miss someone just because I won't see them for 36 hours. Really Lyza, get it together!!!!! Don't get all upset because you don't get to see your man for ONLY 36 hours. This is NOTHING. Seriously pull it together!!! LOL. He is (most unfortunately) becoming very good at his RC racing and has made second place and maybe even first place within the last few weeks. He does it almost every friday. He's beating people who get paid by advertisers…Continue
Hey guys :)
Well the sulfasalazine I just got on, thusfar, is absolutely saving my life....I am feeling so, so, so much better....I am still having flareups--last night I had one that made me cry, but I'm still doing things I couldn't even dream of doing a few weeks ago. :) I even helped lift up heavy furniture and move it into the Penske truck over the weekend with my boyfriend, dad, dad's girlfriend/her sons, and one of dad's coworkers!!! It was amazing :) I was going…Continue
So much for yesterday's internal monologue--it didn't work. Oh well. It's still helping me achieve other goals, even if not a juice feast. I'm staying away from added sugar for the most part. I did succumb to a treat that was totally a bad choice yesterday--albeit oil free and unprocessed. I always make the healthiest indulgences that I can, but still I need to do better. That was a slip-up from doing well the last few weeks.…Continue
For me to reread tomorrow...
Do it now. What's the worst that can happen? What's going to happen to you? Nothing.
But I'm craving _(for me lately it's been sweet potatoes)_ and that's even healthy!
No. For filling warmth, drink ginger tea. What you want is that glorious empty refreshed feeling. That feeling like nothing can…Continue

Yesterday was a pretty life-changing day...actually the theme of this whole month seems to be change. Spring seems to have finally popped out in it's full glory within the last few days...I even found baby morning glory growing in our garden, on a completely different side of it from where it used to be 2 years ago...and it didn't even come up last year. Amazing. :) It's my favorite flower of all time. That blue just ENCHANTS ME. Morning glory blue. Then the lilac bush, for some reason…Continue
Wonderful Hearty Filling :)
(I am a little proud of this one :) Was so surprised at the outcome!)
1/2 a lime's worth of juice…Continue
A few days ago I was revealed a hidden gem!! There's this wholesale produce shop literally down the street from my dad's girlfriend's house, where I visited for the first time on Easter with my boyfriend. Dad took me there as a treat and I bought an incredible amount of produce and for under 30 dollars!! It would have been around 100 at Whole Foods!! :) Very pleased. And I even found young thai coconuts!!!!!! I haven't been able to find those ANYWHERE. And they looked great! Not…Continue
Finished a paper today!!! WHEW :) Babysat yesterday and worked--working my tail off yesterday...Had four bananas this morning and felt totally slammed in my 3 hour sociology class--dehydrated because I forgot to bring any water and probably needed some more calories.
Got gas, went to the bank, went home...made a dip that was sodium-free and very delicious from cooked sweet potato and avocado and herbs that are sprouting up in the garden...then realized I had no…Continue
I deeply apologize for yesterday's TMI post. You know it's funny, if we're stressed out we can view our own lives in completely different respects, and like Alessandra said (to paraphrase), we choose how to view them, and even that choice doesn't really matter in the end after all. I really loved that and plan to remember that always. :) Thanks so much for sharing that.
My boyfriend deserves credit where it's due, last night I was upset and had gone to bed early...I'd been…Continue
I've been having a hard time getting my greens in and mainly because they are either a) so bulky and time-consuming to eat in a salad and b) have such a time consuming and tedious process to put through the juicer. So today I got the best of both worlds--food processed my greens with a little olive oil (mine is garlic-infused--otherwise I recommend adding maybe half a clove of garlic!) and lemon juice and voila! Was so delicious! It was just swiss chard by itself--didn't even need salt.…Continue
Stressed--have a paper in every class due this week!!
I was so raw and ate so little on Saturday that I detoxed until night time when I ate a bowl of white rice to ease the illness I was feeling. I can't afford to be full on detoxing right now when I have so many things I'm being counted on to do this week...been taking ibuprofen to ease my arthritis pain. I try not to take it every day but having less pain sure is making me less depressed and more able to get done what I…Continue
