Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hi guys :)
Well I'm feeling...ahh...about the same as yesterday but yesterday I was feeling a LOT better than the day before...so at least things have improved! With my body I never really seem to know what to expect, so at least some positivity is happening.
Also I have lost so much weight being on this flu...well, I think at least 4 of it was waterweight, as it was gone after the first day, but now I've lost 6 pounds and I'm down to 114! And I don't keep…Continue
Edit: After writing this entry...well, my bronchitis started feeling better. Maybe it's just because night is over and it seems to be worse at night, but I'm feeling a lot more encouraged to try the natural route if there's a way. :)
I used to get this once a year every year for a few years since I started at my old college (ironically around the same time I was in the college choir--great timing lol)...then after I dropped red meat…Continue
Well, I've been reading articles...Read from a doctor's website who's profession is GI diseases that a high fiber diet can actually be dangerous for someone with my GI disease, as well as colitis or IBS...I suppose I need to get to juicing, this is probably why the internal bleeding still hasn't been solved. Also I've been extremely constipated (no bowel movement) for two days now and unable to work an appetite...I am just going to water fast until I'm well enough to physically make a…Continue
Hi guys. Lol, for the last three days, every morning I have thought, "Well, this is the worst it can get!!! Now you just have to get over the hump and you are fine!! :)" And then things have unfortunately either kinda either lulled in the area of bad, or got somewhat worse and then back to lulling again. :) Oh well. I do have the flu--it's not just the cold. One of my dad's pharmacist friends listed the symptoms for me, back aching, fever, etc, and I have all of that and more. I also…Continue

Well welll well, here I am :)
Still sick. Getting better though. Did a couple little armwave dances to Jonsi and Stars over my rubber duckie vaporizer, whilst coughlaughing, and it made me forget I was sick. Took a shower--ahhh--amazing what being clean can do for the body and the soul. Drank gypsy cold care tea, so helpful :)
Can't believe it's not even noon yet here...what a slowww day!
Haven't shared this part of my illness with ya'll;…Continue
Hey everyone. I just wanted to share a quick update.
I know I said that I would take a week long break from the internet--well these last few days I have learned quite a lot about myself, but another thing that happened was I got sick. Really sick. And honestly, I feel that at this level of illness, along with the fact that I've already learned so much, I see no reason not to go back on the internet if I have such limited ability to live my life as it is. I may as well add another…Continue
Hey everyone. Hello you supportive, lovely, encouraging, uplifting people.
If anyone saw my last entry, I really apologize. I deleted it in shame. I woke up this morning--and do you know what? I had more energy than I've had in a long time, even if there was still a little pain--the energy makes it worthwhile to live my life. I didn't feel like my typical "hit by a bus," morning, and do you know what? More than anything I am ashamed. Yes, I suffered pretty badly last…Continue
FINAL APPLE VERDICT: It was the plate they were on! Okay now, Lyza has energy and cabin-fever even though she has a cold (WEIRD) so she's taking a walk down to the lotto store on her street that actually SELLS LOCAL PRODUCE FOR CHEAP INSIDE. Uh, how did I not know of this months ago?? SIGNING OFF lol!!
I am having a serious raw food emergency.
I bought apples again, 8 buck for the bulk bag.
Well, I took a bite into a few...some taste like soap.…Continue
Well, I woke up this morning with a cold...I thought I could sneak my way out of this one but it was just not meant to be. Here she blows, literally.
I also have this bumpy rash on the back of my knee. I thought it was mosquito bites until it spread...pretty gross.
And the arthritis hurts like a....beast. Yet ironically simply for the fact that I have a smidgeon more energy and feel more refreshed than yesterday, I feel better.
But, because I'm contagious...I might…Continue
Ironic it never happens after I spend a whole night drinking or anything?! Grains, something I've eaten since babyhood, a worse drug on my body than sugar and alcohol?!
I guess I am saying bye bye to grains...... I'm going to be thinking of that comparison a lot in order to…Continue
I had one of the best nights of my life last night.
It was so good...it made me rethink Paris, rethink being exclusive...why do people like to be exclusive again?
I did not expect to find such a good dancer at the club. I LOVE to dance, it's one of my passions. This extremely hot guy came over to me and we started dancing together, and he was picking me up in the air and lifting me up, and spinning me around in the air, putting me back down, kissing me,…Continue
I am learning that if things are starting to go downhill, it's time to change my settings a bit. Whether that's internally or externally. Yesterday it was both. I woke up sore, but instead of anxiously rushing downstairs to make something green, I decided I would be easier on myself--I can't help it that I am in pain. I realized that I put so much pressure on myself to do things perfectly, normally, the pain gets to be too hard to cope with and I end up crashing on the nearest piece of…Continue
Today I am feeling rather down. I know I should go out in the yard to pick dandelion greens--they'll help, but I'm so sore that I haven't been motivated to. I did pick a lot of grapes off of the vine and ate those. I had a cup and a half of cooked dry beans this morning, for my dose of protein, as I knew I probably wouldn't be able to get enough greens in today. Not feeling good or happy. I could go to the grocery store, but my car is almost out of gas and I worry about how much money…Continue
This morning is a struggle. My whole body is sore, I'm fatigued, and I'm just laying in bed. It started day before yesterday and gradually worsened--the breaking point being last night after I made a rather large raw butternut squash dish (I'm thinking that the teriyaki sauce or the combination of spices/season salts I added made me feel off). I also have been eating rather high fat raw the last two days, which even with the addition of greens, does not do my body good (although with the…Continue
I have kind of a serious question in post...
So...if you could live in Paris for 400 dollars a month for two months, all other expenses free aside from maybe groceries (this final cost is just the composite of the plane ticket only--I'd be staying with someone)...even if it potentially angered friends and family because of the person you'll be staying with in question and the insolidarity of the matter--but you cared about the person and trusted them deeply and have been…Continue
Yesterday, I had such a fun day with my mom :)
First, I walked into her totally zen bacholorette pad. She'd texted me to just come in because she was still in the shower upstairs. It is decorated so lovely...One of my favorite places in the world to be. She has green, blue, and beige furniture, a mobile made of twisted metal hanging in the middle of the room that she made herself, and clear, interestingly shaped blue, green, and purple vases aligned on the mantle that separates the…Continue
I can't believe it's already been a little over a month since I've joined here...a month of eating that's been becoming purer and purer, and I already have 25 blog entries whopping up here--and you only get one a day!!
Yesterday I ate the most nutritionally dense, purest meals that I've ever eaten. I put everything in the cronometer just to see, and I ended up with 1400 calories, 42 grams of protein (good enough for my height and weight), 100 percent or more of EVERY…Continue
This has been confusing me so much, for so long, I'm actually dedicating an entire blog post to it.
Controversial? Thoughts? Is it good, bad? I know it's a step up from coffee--but is it a step down from raw?
How I feel personally while drinking green tea (mixed emotions):
Hunger pangs go away throughout the day. Am able to focus on and enjoy life to the fullest.
Feel a strange, down to earth, almost godly calm for…Continue
Well, although I know I have my ups and downs on this journey, it seems like my road of ups and downs always is one step backward and two steps forward. :)
Today I ate 50 percent raw. But what was cooked was completely healthier than what I would have normally choose, if I were to eat cooked. I focused more on getting enough protein today than anything else. I'm still struggling on figuring out how to get enough protein raw without eating nuts or seeds (which make me feel…Continue
Well, I woke up this morning with energy!!! :) First time in a long time. And yesterday I had so much energy, I did yoga stretches, and I signed up for yoga classes using a livingsocial coupon (8 classes at a really nice studio of my choice, I can walk in any one i want as long as it's 10 minutes before the class!!! :) I never buy these things full price, just wait for a deal to pop up on l.social or groupon), and, today I am thinking of joining the brand new gym that just opened,…Continue
