No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
The sun is shining and I have an appointment tomorrow at a physiatrist office (i think i spelled that right) to see if they can help me w/ my continuous pain in my ankle/calf and lower back/hips with rehab and exercises. God is telling me there is an answer so I've been led to this doctor. I know there will be a brighter day around the bend and I can manage this pain a little better for the rest of my life. I want to get to exercising again and lose this extra 25 pounds.
Oh my goodness.....This morning I had a great start....had a plan to get up and do some juicing before I left for work. Had that job accomplished....while doing clean up I started multi-tasking a bit. Cleaning up and moving other dishes around since my family was up too and continued to move things around me and through my space. Then it happened.....I hit one of the pt jars of juice w/ the cutting board I was trying to move around.....all over the cabinet, down the front, on the floor, on…Continue
Starting today I am making this a weekend of gratitude! Anything negative will not get much thought time....I will move out of that moment and into a moment of gratitude instead. Filling up my day, hours and minutes w/ all that God has given me....each opportunity that passes my path that sometimes is simply looked over.
So for starters, I am grateful for a wonderful husband that is supportive in every way. I am grateful for an amazing son that has always been my little…Continue
Tonight I made a call to my brothers pregnant girlfriend that is a nurse.....I called her w/ another nurse friend of mine (note, i'm not a nurse and don't speak the language)...I wanted my friend to answer any questions about some nutritional advice I had given my brothers girlfriend previously (mind you...i've only known this gal for about 5 months or so....long story)....longer story short. after getting off the phone, my brother calls and balls me out for making the girlfriend upset.…Continue

I'm loving the way I'm feeling physically and mentally. juices and smoothies are making up my main meals...along w/ a little cooked food a couple days but not much. my hubby is on board and can't believe my first days detox w/ my attitude...i surprise myself sometimes, but i told him i think it was definitely detox from sugar and cooked food. he said if he could not see…Continue
Ok...just wanted to hear what others do. I have a doc friend that said to do 100% raw, lots of water, and an enema every evening before bed....she suggested to do this for a full 30 day detox and great start to weight loss. Any thoughts?
I'm proud of myself.....stopped at store and bought $40 worth of veggies/fruit to juice this week. Got up bright and early this morning, juiced a couple pounds of carrots, a couple granny smith apples, and a head of romaine. So far this morning drank lots of water, took magnesium, zyflemed, juice plus, now green tea.....I will be having 8oz of juice once the hunger pains hit me and then about every 2.5 hours today. we'll see how things are early evening and may throw in a salad w/ some…Continue
I was appalled this morning as I stepped on the scales to see I am almost at my highest weight again since being 189 pounds several years ago...Fall of 2006. At that point in my life I had come to realization that nothing in my life was going to change unless I changed, including my marriage. I had been married for 14 yrs and was so miserable with my life. My son was about 7 yrs old and I refused to let him learn the ways of his father. God had put me in places that year that I needed to be…Continue
Once a month I host a healthy potluck at my house! I have been doing this for over a year now. Its amazing when you become interested in others instead of yourself what can happen. The insights you can find if you open your heart and let others in is amazing! God's hand is everywhere if you just let Him do his work. You take a few steps across the room to meet someone new and amazing things can happen.
This past month I decided to go to a new yoga class at my local fitness center…Continue
I've read "Power of the Subconcious Mind" plus had some coaching on the pictures that we see in our mind about our life! For reasons that come from childhood, I don't think I'm worthy of this life I want! I need to see myself they way I want to look and know that I am worth it, no matter what those old pictures look like or who put them there. I need to surround myself with those pictures by using visualization and repetitive speaking to myself. "I am beautiful and healthy in my slim sleek…Continue
I'm going to quit feeling sorry for myself and stop making excuses!! I want to feel great physically and mentally! I want to have enough energy and love not only for MYSELF, but enough to share with others! I don't want to continually feel like I'm starting over.....I want to quit giving up!! And change the pictures in my head because no matter how my past has molded me, I am worth this! I am beautiful inside and out....and I know the slim trim me is just waiting to get out and stay out!! I…Continue
