email with freelea

HI Freelea,

i love your emails too! they are my daily dose of guidance that keeps me going in the right direction.



i have absolutely no cravings for anything ... dates, salt, nuts, onion are all things of the past.

ok so this is today's effort. i really tried to get the calories in. the bananas helped. i am closer but still a little short. i am happy to aim for 2000 slowly. i hate the feeling of being too full and i dont like eating when i am not hungry.

DAY 6



i really felt the hit of dehydration today. i dont know what happened. i didnt drink my usual 2-3 litres in the morning. i drank about 1. after lunch i drank another .... and fell asleep! i woke up one hour later, drank another litre and went for my run. my performance was pretty ordinary. so i learnt an extremely valuable lesson about WATER. i am going to aim to drink at 2-3 litres in the morning before breakfast everyday to make sure i stay… Continue

run #3

wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better this time. thanks for all your tips. i did 5 laps. 3/4 of the last 4 laps were jogging and the rest fast walking.



for the first time in my life i understod what jogging/running is about!! i have never liked it, but i realised it just like walking. if you practice it comes naturally. as obovious as this sounds it had never occoured to me. and so now i am alll motivated to become a "faster walker" or a better runner.



i am also committed to teaching… Continue

Seriously, the snow needs to stop. I miss the sun.



Sooo I went running today and took a pilates class. I am thinking about learning Tae Kwon Do or go back to learning Ballet. I love being active. Sitting on my butt is a no-no.



After finishing my undergrad studies life has been pretty bland. I studied for the LSAT all summer, took it, worked on applications, and just recently finished them. So now I am doing nada. But at least I am not alone haha. My best friend, Ryan, is… Continue

KICKED THE HABBIT



ok. i know this sounds as plausable as a purple elephant in my bedroom ... but i woke up this morning and i have quit smoking. (after a 5-year, almost a pack a day habbit.) i watched a video on you tube yesterday (called quit smoking while smoking) and it all just klicked.



sure i woke up with cravings but i didnt smoke. i just sucked on the end of a cigarette untill i realised i looked like a complete idiot and threw it… Continue

Rock bottom riser



This is one of my favourite song/clip combinations. I kinda feel like this speaks to me about rising out of the dark place that I've lived my whole life, towards the lightness of true happiness. I've spent my life diving into the murk following false wants and I feel Natural Hygiene, Doug, and the 811 community have pulled me out of the river and slapped some common sense into me.… Continue

I call it PAIN! yoga

I had my first class of Iyengar yoga on Saturday and I have to say...Ouch!! It was really challenging and painfull. An hour and a half of held poses focusing on strength and body alignment. The next day I was so sore but I wasn't deterred as I knew it was doing me good and improving my lack of flexibility. So I went back last night and had another class which again was hard and painfull but today I woke up with no pain at all. It wasn't all the same poses but enough of them were the same for me… Continue

A better week of training

Had a few ups and downs last week but managed to get through it and feel a little stronger (and hopefully fitter).



Started the week eating a lot of mono banana meals but after a few days I started having really intense cravings for foods that I haven't had in ages - which strangely included things like chocolate and pasta. Managed to get through the cravings by adding in some more fruit variety and starting adding in some seeds, nuts and avocados into my evening meals which really… Continue

YOU ARE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR WEAKEST LINK





......and my weakest link is a dirty, expensive, cancer causing one!



addiction is a strange thing, i often find it amazing how something so disgusting to some can be so fulling to others. I couldn't eat a hamburger if someone paid me. but give me a fag and i am as happy as a pig in mud (as horrible as that is to admit.)







I HAVE CHOSEN HEALTH over smoking & my… Continue

Hallooo

Boo to snow. But at least staying-in forced me to finish my law school applications! woo hoo. I hope to attend law school in California where it is warm and sunny. I want to be able to run outside rather than on a thread mill in the gym. I like the sun beating down on me; I like to tan, but I better be careful eeks!



So now that I am done with applications I need to get a life. Perhaps I will get a job or travel to Asia. I need to do something.. and something fun. Any… Continue
