A Blogger Request : )

Hello Dear Bloggers!

Since we have so many wonderful new members - I have a short & simple request - if you are a blogger, I would like to ask you to only add one blog post each day. (Unless there is a crisis or something very earth shattering happens).   Because we have such a beautiful and active blogging community, I think it is a lovely courtesy to allow each member ample exposure on the main home page for their post.

Love is Always the Answer....

This video that I stumbled upon moved me so much that I had to go do some investigating. Akshaya U.S.A. is a not-for-profit organization that supports humanitarian efforts in Madurai, India. The founder Narayanan Krishnan, is an award winning chef who was headed to Switzerland to work in a 5-star restaurant, when his life was forever changed on the streets of his home town.

Believe it...You Are Unstoppable

After watching Rascal Flatts on American Idol last night, I just felt that I had to share this song here with you. It just seemed to fit.......

So so you made a lot of mistakes

Walked down the road a little sideways

Cracked a brick when you hit the wall

Yeah you've had a pocket full of regrets

Pull you down faster than a sunset

Hey it happens to us all

When the cold hard rain just won't quit

And you can't see… Continue

Airstream Dreamin'

When I get to heaven, I really don't want a mansion. I really just want an Airstream trailer, a really cool one! Don't ask me why, but I've had a fascination with Airstreams for as long as I've known they exist. You know, maybe I won't even have to wait to get to heaven : )

I am just so captivated by this Airstream that someone has turned into a mobile juice bar - Raw & Juicy in Seaside, Florida......anybody been here?…

3 More Days on Juice

Above is a slide show of what I've been drinking for the last 3 days (28 Day Total Reset Cleanse Days 4, 5 & 6). Juice, juice and more juice......oh, and lots of water too.

Juice - It's What's For Dinner

And for breakfast, lunch and snack!

Before my 9 am workout I had my 32 oz. of lemon water. My warming morning beverage was a ginger, lemon & honey infusion:

After working out, I came home and created an Orange Genius - oranges, peaches, coconut water & meat blended with organic vanilla and strained. SOOOOOooooooo delicious!…

Good Eats..

Just a quickie blog before I run off to make today's video:

Yesterday was a great day of rest and reflection. I started creating my Vision Book for 2010 (and beyond) and I'll be looking forward to sharing bits of that with you once I have it ready. I also bought a cooling mat for my poor old hard working laptop. I just bought this laptop in late summer and I'm already having it overheating and slowing down. I try to keep it cleaned up but I still just do too much on it… Continue

Focus, Renewal & Cleansing

I decided to take this sacred week between Christmas and New Years to slow down, get focused and find physical, mental & spiritual clarity in which to formulate my goals and vision for 2010....the beginning of a new decade. I have a real sense of expectancy this year, one that I don't remember having before, but I also know that in order to realize certain dreams and plans, I must have a clear cut game plan and then honestly work that… Continue

My Recent Juice-A-Thon

The above slide show is just a glimpse at what I enjoyed drinking during my 2 1/2 week long "Juice-A-Thon" I decided to do this in an effort to knock out a few cobwebs (and unwanted pounds) from my system leading into the autumn season and to be feeling my best for my birthday next week. I generally do this type of cleanse a couple of times a year now. I thought some of my recipes might be helpful to some of you all.

So instead of a "juice feast" this time, I… Continue
