No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I knew when I joined RFR that it was a blessing in disguise....This is by far, the most inspiring and awesome RAW site ever....and trust me.....I have over 3 years worth of book-marked sites that have come and gone or that changed or disappeared or just became the same old repetitive info.....Don’t get me wrong, there are tons that I still love and go to and blogs and amazing people that I follow.....BUT.....RFR is unique and its different and its personal and its friendly..and there is so much happening and so much excitement and involvement.....the only reason I ever signed up at other sites was for the free newsletters (and after time, I noticed I no longer had the desire for certain ones and was un-subscribing day after day).......This site is the whole complete package.....everything in one...and I mean everything.....I actually bought the book before I even discovered this website and I am soooo happy I did.....To know that some of the testimonies are from real people that actually exist and are still here and still involved is wonderful to see...There are quite a few web sites with testimonies but they are the same exact stories that were posted years before and most aren’t ever updated and you always wonder if they stayed RAW or where they are now etc.....Since they aren’t ever updated and the stories are sometimes soooooo old and duplicated from website to website......I am sure many of you, like I once did, question if RAW is the true miracle and cure-all that its cracked up to be....I have lived it and breathed it so I know for sure.....but to see all that this site offers just blows my mind.......In 3 years and book after book and site after site, I still never blogged or opened up or shared.....but yesterday.....I actually, finally, took some time and moved in (check it out) and rearranged and did some housekeeping and posted a few of my poems and hung some photos of my wonderful family and I feel like I might just stay here....hopefully for a long time to come..I like being my real ME....I am writing again (my ultimate passion) and I am sharing my stuff even...I'm becoming an athlete again and I have bounds of energy to go miles and miles....I've been doing this RAW scene solo for way too long and now I'm soooo happy for all of you and it’s crazy but it feels really good and I hope you are getting the same vibes that I am from RFR......Every single person that I have conversed with or reviewed their blogs have all been such beams of light that you can feel them radiating...you truly are giving yourself the gift of life by giving your body all the delightful stuff this site has to offer.....The book and site jolted me out of a long winter hibernation and I am alive and living and breathing and I hope you all are as well....Don’t let another second go by.......take it all in and honestly live it and appreciate it and you will be sooooo thankful for it...my poem and thoughts for today:
Don’t anyone even try to tell me I can’t do this!!!!!!!!!
I am almost halfway back up the hill and it feels soooo good
I’m eating lovely fruits and veggies like I knew I should
I’m back to biking and running and I’m soooo loving it all
I’m in sync, oh yeah....I’m rawkin the house and having a ball
I’m doing it baby.....I’m gonna climb and climb until I jump right over that hill
Ain’t nothing stopping me, I have the belief and the will
I can see it and I can feel it and I’ve once again found my way
I had no doubt that I would wake up..never stopped hoping....It’s why I pray and pray
Been doing this for years and I know what it takes
I have the desire and the gusto......so I chose to ante up the stakes
No more excuses or whining or thinking lazy thoughts
I’m in for the long haul..I’m worth it....there aren’t any nots
I’ve been waking in the morning feeling like I could fly
Those yummy green smoothies.......YUP....they make me giddy and high
They fill me up, yet I feel so much lighter......kinda like...like...I’m floating on air
And I’m giving this shout out to all my new friends and to a whole lotta prayer
You all helped me push harder and I got over that hump
I’m so glad I came here....you lifted me right up...right up off my rump
This past winter brought me down but I’m now shining clear and bright
And I’m ready to kick butt and I will fight the fight
Joining the vault makes me work harder and I want to feel my best
And it helped to wake me up and focus...and know that I will be who I was blessed
Wouldn’t it be silly and crazy to even think of stopping or attempting to quit
Since you only get one body....I’d say... let’s make it happen...let’s be healthy, happy and fit
Lets give it our best shot cuz we are worth it you’ll see
You will be laughing and smiling and content as can be
I know for a fact cuz I have seen it and felt it and I’m living proof
Trust and believe you are worthy...Oh yes you are....get up now and let’s vault over that roof!!!
UPDATE: Well...It's now been over 4.5 years and I am still here...Still loving it and still Rawkin it at RFR and beyond...How cool is that???? I love this place and all of you!! RAW RESULTS is going to blow it out of the park....I can feel it in my gut and I hope you all do as well!
