Just holding myself accountable for what I do. Managed to cut the coffee today. It felt pretty good. I am going to keep going with it. I don't have anything against coffee, but I just realize it hinders me from optimal nutrition, and I want to be my best. I want to live 100% and boast all the results because I have a lot of people watching me, and interested in what this lifestyle can do! Woop! Feeling a little bit sick on my tum, because I bought some navels from Whole foods, and I don't…Continue

Yay for the holiday weekend, and no work tommorow! Enjoying energy from many ripe bananas. I haven't been eating them whole to increase my numbers. Although, I prefer them whole. Husband took us out to eat which altered my eating plan! Loving lots of happiness and positive energy!
Breakfast: 8 banana and 3 date smoothie
Lunch: Green salad with veggies and mustard vinegarette, baked sweet potato (out)
Dinner: 8 banana, date and celery smoothie
Dessert: 2 apples ---…Continue
Back at work!!! Just wanted to brag a little...
Yesterday I ate approximately 25 organic and ripe bananas and enjoyed it. I feel my taste buds shifting --- and I prefer sweet fruit over other things. I neeeever crave sweets now. Love it! Only snafu is that I drank an americano coffee in the am. I was so pumped with energy, I spent the evening dancing around to music. So much so --- I didn't want to go to bed until 11. Which is bad. LOL.
Anyways, tonight is a long night…Continue

I worked overnight! And I am pooped! At any rate, I have decided to raise the bar a little bit. I have eaten enough raw foods and long enough to know how I feel when I am raw and when I am not. At this point everything I put in my body has an effect, and I am more mindful of it. Therefore, I am think I am ready to challenge myself with banana island. I have tried it before and failed. But I would like to give it a go. I have made myself a list to look at when I want to quit! Lol. Anyways, I…Continue

Things have been going well except back at work I occasionally drink one soy latte in the AM. But I have to be kind with myself! Anyways, eating fruity has been easy at work. However, since I am busy --- my appetite can be less than ideal. I have decided to take a good vegan multivitamin, with my vitamin D spray (I'm deficient). I have been able to get in about 2 liters a day of water, and I am working on increasing that. I also get about 7.5 to 8 hours a night, which I think is pretty damn…Continue
I am doing very well folks!
I joined Freelee's 30 day challenge. Yesterday was a bit rough as I made a terrible combo for dinner and went to bed hungry. I don't think I will be metal-ing with the greens like kale, or bok choy for my salads. However, today i realized kale and bok choy make nice additions to green smoothies. Since they both taste strong it just balances out nicely for my tastebuds. I am happy because I don't like to waste. I also enjoy salads with romaine, cucumbers,…Continue
So once again I am trying to commit fully to 801010 (I have been dabbling with this since Jan). Recently I have been eating a "high raw" diet, mostly vegan. With the occasional dairy product thrown in there. I have a hard time allowing myself to consume any cooked foods, because it just seems like a slippery slope. I'd rather just cut it out for the time being. I can say since the beginning of the year I have lost 5 pounds, eliminated any binge type behaviors, stopped drinking pop…Continue
I planned pretty poorly for the day. And my food choices sort of reflected that. Ah well --- back to it tommorow! I started off the day as usual, but then got stuck out with my Mother and son and ended up eating a bit of fast food for lunch. This put me in a food "coma" for a few hours. I napped with my son. Typically, my parents eat late. So I was totally starved prior to dinner (which is no good!) and my Mother fixed me a bowl of homemade icecream. It is just a lesson I am not quite there…Continue
Today was a good day. I went to bed at 10 yesterday, and felt good this morning. I didn't have a huge appetite so I ate a smaller smoothie. Then I wasn't able to get around to lunch until two PM. I had no trouble eating up all my food. I love watermelons. I just cut them in half and grab a spoon. My parents were back in town today, so it was a fun day. We took my son to church in the morning, and cooked together at night. (Well I mostly just chopped). Anyways, we were able to fix a dinner…Continue

Today was nice! Both of my parents were out of town today, so it was just me and my son. (We are visiting from NC). We had a nice relaxing Saturday. Enjoyed a little bit of play outside and at the neighbor's house. Here is what i ate:
Breakfast: Located a mini blender! Banana/strawberry date shake (cup coffee w/soy creamer)
Lunch: 1/2 watermelon and baked sweet potatoes in fat free hummus
Dinner: Head of romaine w/ raw guac (SO GOOD - avocado, celery, yellow pepper,…Continue
I never really enjoyed watermelons in the past, but I have really really been enjoying them this season. Today I ate half a watermelon for lunch, and enjoyed wonderful energy. I ate it sort of like a bowl w/ a spoon and it didn't take me too long to eat this time.
When I get home (to NC) I may consider eating one every day...banana ice cream...fresh OJ...and then a really plain salad with some sort of savory dressing. Any ideas for savory dressings friends?
Here is what I ate…Continue
I am back home in Ohio with my parents with my two year old son for several weeks. My husband and I are still working out the kinks in our marriage, but it appears things are slowly getting back on track, and I am looking forward to seeing him soon.
I didn't think I would be able to keep up my 801010-ish lifestyle here, but it hasn't been hard at all. There are plenty of places to get fresh fruit here (OHIO) - and not too expensive. My parents also keep a fairly decent and large stash…Continue
Here is my plan for the next bit: 100% raw breakfast until dinner. Dinner will be greens with grains/beans/legumes without condiments (except fresh herbs). I hope to be able to save some money and get my family in on the vegan action. I realize some of my pass failures come from a low intake. I am going to ramp it up to 2500 calories DAILY with pretty much 2000 in by lunch (This will be key - as I normally crash by 3 to 4PM from low intake). I only have 50 to spend this week. So my plan is…Continue
I am so ready to hit the sack right now! But I wanted to stop and jot down a few ideas.
I have decided to start nana island tommorow. I am looking forward to it. It will actually be banana smoothie island (with some greens too). I want to try and do this for a week (really longer, but I have to start small). The reason I want to do BI is because I have not been feeling well. Last week I had a case of nausea/diarrhea for several days. THIS week my throat is sore and it feels like my…Continue
I am so appreciative of all the responses I get whenever I have a concern! I am slowly but surely working on my relationship with my husband. I am mostly focusing on carbing up and being a good partner. That is all I can do right now!
I had a hard time sticking to the diet last week because we are changing everything up in the home. We had no kitchen sink, so I couldn't wash my foods, or spread out my blender/juicer. Then I got sick, with nausea/diarrhea for several days which I am…Continue
I finally feel like I know what I have to do to succeed. I have asked a million questions and received all the answers thanks to the community. Now I need to just put what I have learned to action! This week has ran beautifully, my cravings are slowly melting away, I am eating more than ever, and I know where the fruit is. Although it remains a little costly!
I have so much going on right now! Work starts in a few months. I am converting my baby to veganism sloooowly. I…Continue
SO after playing around for a few months I am ready to stick to a 60 day 100 percent challenge. In which I document EVERYDAY what is going on. My Dad is interested in the diet. He has agreed to read 801010 and my blog too. I also will be posting my blog to facebook so that all my friends can see it, and perhaps they will be inspired by me. I am not really an "in…Continue
