80-10-10 got delivered today!

ok. well, 80-10-10 arrived today. about 3:30 pm EST. a little over 12 hours later, I took it out of the UPS box. 


I think with it here, it is a little scary. I will not have any excuses now. I have a physical reference for what i need to find. I will now have knowledge at my fingertips which means I am now accountable to myself. 


Mentally, it is tough. when hte box first arrived I made a scrunchy face at it. I am making a scrunchy face at the book out of the…

100% LFRV for July!

I've been struggling to stay 100% raw for months now and I'm thinking July is my month. I'm kind of on my own as far as support (I live with my SAD-eating boyfriend), so I NEED you people to keep me accountable and revved up about fruit! I'm also fighting a serious salt addiction, so there are a lot of obstacles, but I'm excited, eager, and determined to stay 100% LFRV!!


Wish me luck (and fruit! Sweet, delicious fruit!)!!! And know that your encouragement means a LOT to…

To Marathon or not to marathon, half or all the way

So prior to today, the furthest I ever ran in one shot was 14km. I usually run about 6km about four times a week on different days and swim 3 days a week. I recently ran a 5km race and placed 3rd in my age group. After feeling so confident from that incident I decided to sign up for the Trinidad and Tobago international marathon that will take place on July 24th. Today I did my trial run and it took me 7.5 hours to complete the 42km! I am devastated as I thought I would have done a better…

height:weight ratio of elite athletes

it is possible to find weights, heights and body fat percentage of some athletes... using this information I can find height to weight ratios and calculate how heavy that person would be if they were my height... eg if I was an ultramarathoner or heavy weight boxer then I would weight X.kg...


some results...


Shani Davis - speed skater ----------- 6'2" - 190lb - 2.5676

Usain bolt - 100m sprinter ----------- 6'5" - 190lb - 2.4675

Change. (No, not nickes and dimes, the other kind!)

Once upon a time,


I decided I hate change. It just hurts too damn much!


Now, that statement wasn't exactly true; I hate how much change hurts, but I know it can bring about such good things. It is hard. I think it's hard... Growing hurts. Maturity does not come without a cost. Wisdom is not learned in one day. Shucks DARN I wish it was all as easy as enjoying a sweet, juicy mango! But, alas, growth is not. Change brings about either growth or retardation. And…

Just keep getting back on that wagon...

I think I first discovered this site in 2008.  I instantly felt in my gut that this was right for me.  This was true health.  No fad, no uncertainty as to whether this was the best way to live.


But alas, I let things, trivial things, get in my way.  Time and time again.  Trying to get a quick fix, falling further off the rails, the endless "I'll start tomorrow" cycle.


I always come back though.  Even when I go to try a fad to lose a few quick kilos I always…

Back after a long time!

So I've made the decision today to go back to LFRV : )


To clarify- I never really decided against LFRV...just sorta slipped and slid back to old ways of eating.  What can I say- it's been a year since I was truly LFRV (I've been just plain vegan since)....and although going back to eating a vegan diet that included cooked and sometimes processed and sometimes junk foods did not destroy my life whatsoever, I do miss that feeling of vivacity and being in love…

Good Morning Bananas

Feeling better, slept well :) <--- major thing for me!


Ok, so I did not make it through day 2 completely SAD free. But....I do feel much better with having eaten 95% raw (bananas). I woke up early today and actually felt like getting up and being productive. Love the morning time! It is so quiet and fresh. I will be getting some more bananas today, riper ones that I got before because I will be getting them in bulk and they ripen them to various stages for grocery stores,…

why is running so hard?

Today I decided to go on my first real run in about a year or two and OMG so hard. I mean Im not a couch potato, I bike around 30 or 40 miles 5 to 6 days a week with no problem and I long board 2-3 times a week along with various other random activities. But holy cow! This 1 or 2 mile run beat me to the ground. I was huffing and puffing. I did track and field in highschool and this run made me think "holy @#$% how did i do this for 4 yrs?!??!" hahahaa. 


so my question is…

I'm moving! Hooray!

Someone is finally offering on my parent's house! Thank goodness...we've been having at least 5 showings a week for the past 2 months, it's been really inconvenient. 


I pretty much get to pick where we move even though I won't be there long. I'm searching for apartments within walking distance of various farm stands I know of. Maybe I could even get a job at one. Most of my stuff is already packed too. I might just sell my furniture...I prefer sleeping on the floor anyways.…
