I was a dancer in my younger years through adult years.
By age 18, I was diagnosed with pre-arthritis in my knees.
✿ I was living on fast food, canned foods, processed foods, doughnuts, etc. The dancing probably helped me keep the weight down, but lots of exercise did NOT keep…Continue

When life gets good, you realize just how bad it was before. And that can be hard. But if you can embrace and accept that things were tough, and see it all clearly, you will find that what you lost during that time is returned to you, plus some!
Because the contrast between then and now will make you appreciate everything so much more deeply. Happiness, health, fun, friends, life, you are seeing it all like a child does; everything is novel, and vivid, and important. And…Continue

We as humans have come to measure life in length, by how many years we can live. But in reality life is not linear; it should be seen not for how long it is, but for its overall size and breadth; by how far we can spread our wisdom, how far the light in our soul can shine, how many people we can love, support, and share this beautiful world with, and by how much fun we can have in the time we are given, however long or short that may be. Spread the love my…Continue
So I have been doing the " raw till four" program for a while now. When I first came across raw foods I went fully raw for a week or two and felt GREAT. Then for some reason I went into this mode of cooked foods and was eating cooked foods for dinner almost every day. I feel not so good on this at all, I feel the cooked foods make me crave salt and fat often and keep me feeling weighed down. I am especially having trouble with lowering my fat intake, I used to love adding a whole avocado and…Continue

Woke up groggy and sleepy. Spent most of the day resting and napping, did not feel like doing much. I managed to cram in a 90 minutes walk, got some young coconuts imported from Costa Rica and some amazing tasting bananas, that are small but juicy.
Ate smoothies all day, grazing, whenever I felt awake enough to eat. Nectarines, coconut water, bananas, romaine and a lovely treat of cherimoya, custard apple. That was the only food I did not blend today. It was a super nice…Continue

I have been doing pull ups regularly for a few month now, not following a strict exercising plan, just having fun. And today with a good friend of mine, we went training and he kinda pushed to try to do a muscle up which I believed I could not do, but I was wrong and I could get 3 of them done!!! Power of motivation and fruits!
That made me feel so happy!

Life’s a risky business. It is so uncertain, unpredictable, and let’s face it, just plain weird! What are we all doing here?? And added to it’s general incomprehensible vastness are so many other variable factors in our lives: family, friends, work, money, health, it’s a lot to keep tabs on! And sometimes this can make us feel a little overwhelmed. Everything external is so changeable and out of control, which makes it important that we remain the constant in our own lives; the one person…Continue
