Today I am finally starting my daily Blog! I will record my foods, exercise, and lessons I'm learning in my life.
For a brief background, I have dealt with adrenal issues, hypoglycemia, candida, depression, anxiety, emotional eating, previously having been both somewhat overweight and also anorexic at one point.
I've been eating 811rv since July 1st, 2011 and have experienced significant improvements. I want to share my experience as well as get support and advice from this wonderful community.

Today's Weak Link: fun and enjoyment, connection
Todays Challenges: wanting to jog in the morning but having a class scheduled for later so I didn't.
Preparing food more than once because I didn't prepare enough ahead.
Some degree of emotional eating, especially in the evening. I was feeling sad from not connecting with anyone today.
Still not sure how to properly plan a day
Improvements to make for tomorrow: I realized I need music to be motivated to jog. I need to ask someone for a good upbeat cardio type playlist I can get on my phone or itunes.
I also want to get a personal trainer or I need someone who can give me an effective workout plan. I've exercised for years yet never gotten in shape. I need a real plan.
I decided to cancel my kickboxing membership after this month to save money for other fun classes like gymnastics.
I spent the day trying to get my goals for the year more compelling and broken down into quarterly steps. I did my coaching homework for my session tomorrow. I hope it helps! It was hard to be inside alone on a sunny day.
Yesterday I re-watched the 1st DVD of Dr Grahams Making Friends with Your Food. It was a good review of why to eat raw food instead of cooked and why high carb is the way to go, not high protein or high fat.
