Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

My husband works from home and has for a long while now. This has taken it's tole on our marriage and the kids. A lot of my homeschooling friends think it would be awesome if their hubby's worked from home. They visualize them working together, educating the kids together, field trips together.. This is far from the truth. He has to work. He didn't come home to work to help you do your job. And he thinks it will be quiet but it won't be. The tension rises.. It works for some but not for all. And it hasn't for us. I finally put my foot down and asked for a month off. My stress level was so high that I was really feeling it.. I could see it in the kids too.

So hubby is in Ca for a month. I will spend the month loving on my kids, organizing the home (stream-line my life) and getting healthier.. I am starting a smoothie fast today. 30 days of smoothies.. I have 4 bags of Rockin Wellness, I have Garden of Life raw meal and raw protein as well. 

I am looking forward to this time to refresh and recover a bit from the stress of my life..

Thank you for the prayers Stephanie. I am learning more and more that my mental health is vital... I have to take care of myself so I can be the best mom and wife I can be..

way to go debra....our men do have the tendancy to smoother us and if they are home it just creates more headaches and stress for us.  mine doesn't work from home, but he gets 7 day long breaks and works 12 hr shifts so several times a months when i'm working from home his schedule really puts a dent in my plans cause of course he never makes anything concert....so I just have to wonder what he's going to do and then have to have my plans disrupted because he finally decided what he was going to do. ugh. so i'm right there with you about a well needed break. you go girl! i'm so realizing that we have to stay strong for US......not them.....if we do not....we break down and lose ourselves in the meantime.  I'm praying for you sister!! Take this month to reenergize yourself and do lots of SELF LOVE!!

hi there Debra - thanks for the friend request. You've got a big job - being an awesome MOM - I'm glad that you have had the courage to ask for what you want and to create space for you to reset and renew. I trust that you will be given the energy to forge ahead in positive ways for you and your beautiful family. Keep it real, and raw ;-)

good for you. If we don't take care of ourselves, then no one else will. I will be sending prayers your way for  clarity and that you'll feel so much better at the end of the 30 days. I totally understand how things can get difficult.  Please keep us posted on how you are feeling - we'll be here xoxo
