So I have had to take this week off work due to stress & recurrence of depression.
I felt awful all last week. Had manic moments where my heart was racing because work was so busy - I couldn't cope at all. I felt so sad, and just completely numb to things.
I managed to do my workouts most nights, which really helped, but it actually comparatively feels much worse now when I am not exercising, like I am crashing after the adrenaline rush.
I was quite manic on Saturday…Continue
Tim Van Orden...? well, what is to say about him?
these days people discuss a lot of things about him. I ve always thought he was a very intelligent guy, not just "gym&fitness" :) when I was watching his vids on youtube I ve noticed that he provides more info on nutrients and physiology as anyone else.

It appears that my biggest hurdle is spacing my eating far enough away from my workouts. My workouts are too difficult to eat anything at least 2 hours before. Which poses a bit of a challenge.

Before I was raw, I loved my junk food. Mac and Cheese was my meal of choice, if I didn't have a coca cola before 2 pm, I was exceedingly grumpy, and we ate out nearly every day. It was a bit ridiculous!
Now everyone I know refers to me as…Continue
Day 4 of Banana Island is coming to a close. I must admit, I haven't been 100% bananas. I had green juice the first 3 days. Today I ate 2 pears. I just wanted a different taste in my mouth. I also munched on some celery. It was delicious. I ate these things separate from the bananas. The craving for cooked foods isn't really there. When I smell cooked food (usually vegan, because the only food I'm around is at work and it's vegan) I don't salivate over it. I just think "Oh that…Continue
