Why is this happening to me?

I was all excited about going to Woodstock, and I got my parents' consent.

But I told an older lady about my trip and now she wants me to not go because she's afraid I'll be swayed by Dalai Lama and his acolytes' influence. I told her that his event has nothing to do with Tibetan Buddhism and whatnot, but whatever I say is useless. I am going alone, so she's also worried that I may not be safe. Now my grandma is all worried too. They're just worried about nothing; I planned everything…

Where Do I Get My Protein? Answered with references

Hi everyone,


I have a new blog post, and I spent a REALLY long time on it, because I truly wanted to make something valuable we could all share with our loved ones. I don't know about you, but I am starting to get really frustrated every time someone asks me where I get my protein, lol! Although, I know I would do the same if I was in their shoes. So I made this post as an answer to all of the people who ask me the seemingly inescapable protein question.

Today I used the "F word" for the first time...

...the word Fruitarian that is. I hadn't even mentioned that word to my husband and I've been 811 for 75 days. It's kinda of exciting, in a nerdy sort of way!

Today was a staff development day and they served pizza and salad to the staff. The woman in charge of setting up the food, found me in line for the food and explained that I could jump ahead to get vegetarian pizza, unless I was vegan and I didn't eat cheese either. I was impressed that she used the word "vegan."

Week 2

Its hard to explain how i feel today. Its definitely a new feeling.

I feel very clear minded..and tired at the same time.... but i have energy too.

Its a great feeling. I spent the day trying to figure out exactly how i feel. I don't remember feeling this way...except maybe when i was a kid. 

usually i get spacey...and even dizzy sometimes.


good things! 

and the best is yet to come.

Race Report: East Fork Oly Triathlon

I've only got about a month left 'till my A-race of the year-- Ironman Wisonsin. Unfortunately my tri season had to be shrunk this year due to my ankle injury in March, but this week I managed to pull off my most epic week of the season and can report that my ankle is now 100%. I even won* my first event.


*Only because I went off course accidentally and shortened it by 3 miles.


Last week, I offered to pace a good friend of mine for 20 miles on her 100…

Good To Know!

Just started using cronometer.

8 POUNDS of watermelon FLESH only has 1090 calories?!?! 


I can't wait till my bananas are ripe!!  I looked for dates and couldn't find any at the store.  I asked my Mom if she had seen any and she said "not since we lived in California." 

I did experience a couple minor cravings, one when the rest of my family was eating their SAD dinner and I could smell it... the other was just a general craving for salt.  Other than… Continue

Feeding a SAD eater 1.5L of blended watermelon

Each time I go for a bicycle ride with one my Rawdad friend, he treats me with 3-6Lbs blended watermelon after our ride in 95F+ temperature. I can feel my body lifting up almost immediately like a dry wilted flower. Amazingly, I never saw this phenomenom in my life before where I don't get sore, no matter how much I spend my legs on the bike!!! The high fat in my past diets really screwed me up. I tried everything from Creatine to Protein and Amino Acid powder, but nothing will recover your…

Let me just start by the fact that for the first time in my life, the low fat raw vegan 3K+ kcal a day with exercise is really a life saving lifestyle for me and my family. I've been vegan for quite a while but not consistently (I had some dairy products sometimes) and to top it off with low calorie intake along with way too much fat from oil and nuts. Now my family and I are embracing the Low Fat Raw Vegan and Oh My Gosh, what a difference. I can recover from my workouts instantently with…

Good Quotes.

Kierkegaard on helping others:

If One Is Truly to Succeed in Leading a Person to a Specific Place, One Must First and Foremost Take Care to Find Him Where He is and Begin There.

This is the secret in the entire art of helping. 

Anyone who cannot do this is himself under a delusion if he thinks he is able to help someone else. In order truly to help someone else, I must understand more than he–but certainly first and…

Official Day One 08/07/11

Ordered 80-10-10 -- CHECK!

Printed the wonderful first 30 days workbook -- CHECK!

Spent entirely too much time reading and learning on 30BAD -- CHECK!

Even though I couldn't do a "full day" as LFRW, went grocery shopping and bought lots of fruit and had my first full-fruit meal -- CHECK!

It was VERY hard to eat today, because yesterday I had possibly one of the worst binges of my life...I won't go into details, but let's just say I made myself…

Day ?, still sleep deprived....

Well I'm still sleep deprived, and I'm so tired I don't feel good and don't feel like eating. I have been pretty much eating all raw 811, but sometimes have a chai or couscous.

I had some Mexican mangos the other day and my lips broke out in a rash! they still hurt and it's been a week. So to sum up: not sleeping, not eating, exhausted.

I'm going to try and get my baby on a schedule now and hopefully in a week or so he'll at least sleep 5-6 hrs a night...then I'll be able to… Continue
