Raw Food Rehab

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

Wow! It is 2014 and so much has happened since the last time I checked in here. The biggest and saddest thing is that my mom went to heaven on September 4 last year. I had moved in to take care of her starting in May, so I am in this weird situation where I am living in my mom and dads house but without them, because my dad is in hospice. It is very hard to be here without her. Everything I see reminds me of her, and I miss her so, so much every day.

Last year was plain awful. It was a year of loss and suffering for people I love. :-( I am very optimistic about this year--I figure anything has to be better ! Starting on January 1, I went on a juice feast. I plan to continue it till May of this year, for a total of 120 days. I just realized that today marks 10% of the way. It is going very well. I am finding it quite easy to stay on. Next week is my PMS week, so we'll see how that goes. In the past, that's when I've blown it.

In May, I am going to Europe to see my daughter who is in college in Ireland for one semester. She is going to meet me and London, and then we are going on a trip to London, Paris, and Rome. I am super excited, and I feel very motivated to do well on the juice feast so that I may sit in the seat comfortably on the plane. I am also working to increase my stamina for walking and standing so that I can enjoy my trip. I am trying to walk a little bit further each time.

The final new beginning is that I am going to buy my first house. I am very excited but I am also nervous that they are going to tell me no at the last minute. We close on 31 January so I guess I will find out soon enough! I just pray that it all goes smoothly. I really love the new house! I cannot stay here because we need to sell the house to pay for my father's care.

Well, that's my catch-up post for now. I am glad to see there are still a few people here! Raw food rehab feels like a home to me, even with all the changes. ((Hugs)) Heather
