I improved my time by 3 minutes. My recovery time was a lot quicker and I could still feel the burn by the back leg muscles for 3 days after the run. I am super excited to run a 10k, hopefully sometime in July. This in preparation for my first mountain climb in 2014. TGBTG!
As always, I am looking forward to everyone's encouragement :)
And here is the comparison older one before…Continue

My friend feeds her son milk but after learning the harmful effects she now wants to look for an alternative. Her son is 3. I suggested hemp, almond, rice, and coconut milk but to be honest I don't know which is best. Any advice? I myself drink almond milk.....is this considered raw? I make my own. I soak my almonds then blend it in the blender.

I realized it is important for me to recognize all the little successes that will one day lead up to a bigger success. But every time I fail, I tend to only look at the failure. Wasn't I succeeding until I failed? Why didn't I recognize that before?
And the more you acknowledge successes, the easier it is to stay motivated and keep yourself going. I decided to play a game with myself. Habits are formed by repetition, until it becomes second nature. For every meal that I…Continue

I have many friends over the internet, mainly girls who are suffering from anorexia, bulimia and many other eating disorders. Countless amount of times I have tried to help and support these girls. Whether it was doing challenges with them where we would both eat nothing all day, (at a point when I experienced anorexia, which my real life friends don't know about). Or where we would talk about our problems, and sometimes I would even get some girls to eat a "healthy diet" for a week with me,…Continue
So after a week (or so):
1. my acne has been clearing up. The huge cystic acne on my jaw and chin is almost gone. I have had some whiteheads erupt on my cheeks and nose, but they go away in a day. It is no longer painful for me to have my face against a pillow while trying to fall asleep. In a way, I am breaking out more, because there are more pimples, but they last a shorter amount of time and they aren't leaving huge red marks on my face.
2. I ate some cooked couscous…Continue
This is for those who missed my blog on what to do with mangoes...
I found out that mangoes can be used as a skin moisturizer/nourisher mask as you make your smoothies or raw mango dish recipes.
The center part has a lot of moisture left after you cut out the soft part.
So as you make your raw mango dish or smoothie just take the center part and simply rub it in your face and your arms. There is…Continue
Who is Serious about being in an affordable micro community of health conscious raw vegans living in healthy warm climate??? ( No need to pay $70 000 like the Hawaii community or even pay $200/day like the woodstock fruit festival ) I am talking about going to Mexico or Costa Rica in November to April and renting large homes and sharing them with a community of 8, 10 or 12 people. Sharing a car, food, time together, and wisdom. Having a blast living life to the fullest even though the…Continue
I was just watching NOVA with my children about Language and babies laughing "What Makes Us Human"and I saw the video of Matt Monarch with his baby girl! I was just blown away! Just about maybe 10 seconds, but still...I thought it was cool and my daughter and I were taken by surprise!
*just remarking on who I saw, nothing to do with MM's views or mistakes, etc.
I've been raw for 5 months now and i am experiencing probably the most serious flare up from my excema. it's spreading as well and its only on my upper body (upper arms, face and neck). I usually only experience one or two patches year round.. i live in fla so, it is a pretty hot and humid climate, but this is the first summer it has reacted like this. I thought being outside during runs was the trigger, but it isnt going away regardless of what I do (coconut oil & shade/staying…Continue
