Well I have managed to keep within the 811 but due to my intense hatred of food waste, I had to have salad for lunch again. With radishes and figs yummm! I have developed quite bad tooth ache and I do need to see my dentist about some crowns *sigh* my old tongue stud (and really poor diet)have left me with cracked teeth at the back. I seem to be detoxing everything out of my skin at the moment - diet coke, cigarettes, dare I say beer.... I only stopped the smokes 16 days ago but since then have… Continue

Anyone drink their own piss - it's raw - sounds very curative from what I have read?

And I have done it!!! I even managed to have some homemade raw zucchini hummous and babaghanoush. I didn't think I would be able to go without any oils on my lunch/dinner. So to take my mind off the fats, I invented a rather strange concoction for lunch (pea shoot tops, fresh fig and radish salad) and for dinner I made a fantastic dressing of tomato, basil, mango and yellow bell pepper. I made so much I have more than enough for tomorrow. I have been logging on thedailyplate.com and… Continue

So after I had my dinner last night I basically went straight to bed at 7. My head was pounding so hard the noise from the tv and the light was making it worse. I fell asleep immediately.

Okay so I hadn't posted the past two days due to just being so busy and exhausted from working! But I have a few minutes now before work today to get my stuff down..
This was a good day. I had a fabulous massage in the morning then had work in the afternoon. I was exhausted when I got home. No more massages before work! So I made my next massage appointment for a Saturday, that way I can just chill and rest afterwords.
I was feeling uber bloated all day.… Continue

"a big burly samurai comes to the wise man and says, "tell me the nature of heaven and hell." and the roshi looks at him in the face and says: "why should i tell a scruffy, disgusting, miserable slob like you?" the samurai starts to get purple in the face, his hair starts to stand up, but the roshi won't stop, he keeps saying, "a miserable worm like you, do you think i should tell you anything?" consumed by rage, the samurai draws his sword, and he's just about to cut off the head of the roshi.… Continue

The days have just been flying.
I fell asleep on the couch yesterday which has left my neck in a terrible way. I've had a headache ever since! I shall see if I can get that sorted out at work tomorrow..till then I just have to put up with it. Which brings me to my reason for not sleeping the best last night which then turned into not getting to the gym for the class I wanted to do. Never matter.
I went for a walk this morning and did some yoga and if I have some energy I may do some… Continue

obama came to ottawa yesterday, and i just have to say that he is great! i think he is such a sweet man, even if i don't really know him, or really follow him politically, or have only ever seen his speak once on television...
even though he was under super security protection, he still made a special stop in the market where my sister was having a cuppa and saw him wave at the people there. then he stopped for a beaver tail (no, not a real one) - to experience a canadian tradition.… Continue

So yesterday was actually prett7y successfull. I would say I was 95% lowfat rv. I did eat some cooked food but i realize that this is a transition, and the fact that im forgiving myself for not being perfect is a major step for me. I have to say that i did addict but not as harshly. its a step. baby steps. today im aiming for a 100% good lowfat rv day and NO addicting. i can and will do this. GO BANANAS

I wonder if the health and well being of mosquitoes is effected by the quality of the blood they suck? Is dining out on a SAD eater like going to McDonalds for them? All that fatty blood going straight to their hips! Haha! Are we 811ers the healthy choice for health fanatic mosquito diners?
Nature is so finely balanced that even the slightest change can trigger a chain reaction and result in a catastrophe. So if insects like mosquitoes don't get the quality of food they require, I… Continue

I recently had a bike accident and ended up with a lot of grazes (25 actually) that scabbed over and all but a few have now healed and the scabs have fallen off (is scabs the correct term?). A few days before each one came off, the area around them became very itchy which I've heard is a good thing for some reason. So I started to think why does it start to itch, and is there a purpose for this itching or is it just a reaction to the healing process? I figure if you get an itch your body wants… Continue

I was so super busy yesterday I didn't get a chance to write up my day :)
I was at work again from 1-6.45pm and was really exhausted by the time I got home..
I am going in again this afternoon.
It would have been nice to have a bit of a relaxing day today. I only got 5 hours sleep last night, so I feel my sleep debt is really taking its toll on me.
Never matter, just keep going :)
I will have a 2 hour remedial massage… Continue

Great day :)
Firstly, I got a job..
Part-time receptionist at my Chiropractors office.
Not the last time but the appointment I had before with my chiro, he asked if I would be interested in working at his office and told me to bring in my CV. So at my next appointment I decided it would be a good opportunity for me to get back into working (after a loooooonng hiatus) and also just start to get back into living my life again.
So today I went in for a 'trial run' to see… Continue

hey its day five, i woke up to find that my jeans were loose (yay), my skin was clear (yay again) and my mind was racing like a ...um something that goes fast.
Work flew by today and i got loads of work done, i was feeling very productive indeed (however i did have to consciously slow my brain down a couple times because my poor fingers couldn't type fast enough).
Spent the afternoon playing games with my son, mainly just throwing pillows at eachother- he is soo beautiful… Continue

so i got up today and went for a run...eventually.
all i have to say is thank god/the infinite powers of the universe for grip guards. the path i went on was glare ice. the grips worked amazingly tho, they dug right into that ice like it was nobody's business. i don't know how many times i went up and down the hill this time cause i zoned out, which was really nice. i could just enjoy the process. i would say it was around 9 or 10 not including the two times i had to walk cause i got… Continue

Good morning. It's cool and wet in sydney again this morning. But i am kinda enjoying it.
So this is day four of "apple lurrrvee" , got up this morning feeling much better, i have the sniffles but other than that i am a-ok. I have 2.2kg of kilos of apples to eat today. I decided to add some dates to the apples because i am worried about under eating. (not normally a concern of mine i assure you!) but i just can't get through the apples i need. Get the feeling from reading forum and… Continue
