No, as a matter of fact, I have not found a buddy yet. I think that might make this thing easier.
I noticed your comment about sleep. Do you have trouble getting 6-8 hours of sleep? I just found a book that says that restorative sleep is necessary to restore hormone and metabolic balance.
There are hormones to control hunger, and there are processes to control the metabolism of carbohydrates and cravings for sweets, as well as whether muscle or fat is built up or torn down. The amount of sleep we get controls the production of these hormones!! This is very scary. I have sleep apnea. Perhaps that is why I seem to be having so much trouble with this program!! Today is Day Two. Perhaps this whole thing is out of my control anyway!! Very scary.
Hey Greenmama, I use lef.org for blood tests. They have a yearly fee, but the costs of the tests seem much reduced over other sources. Google "lef discount code" and you should be able to sign up for $45 or less. They allow you to add other people, like family members to your account. During signup, uncheck all the options for sending you adverts etc. They send out a blizzard of material.
hah, forgetting debt sounds awesome! but I'd rather not have anything owing to the system before i go hippy and runnoft to the forests to pick fruits & build mud huts...slightly exaggerated but yeah. Work is not hard to find here but i was hoping i had put my slavewage times behind me. thats so cool you have a little fruitarian, i hope to a have a few of em some day..a friends little brother, who's about 7, is slowly becoming a fruit bat because i talk about it so much...he's always telling me about how many nanas he can eat at once lol
Awww, thanks honey *hugs*!
I shall certainly try and find my way to Chicago and then out into the middle of nowhere from there lol.
Thank you so much, you continue to be an inspiration and I'm extremely inspired to blog daily from reading your blog. It's the night of the 30th here at the moment so I'm determined to do May 100% raw. I have the tools, I have the experience, I know I can do it now. So tomorrow I will stop all excuses and do commit to fully raw may!
My salt addiction is very mild compared to yours so I am determined to knock it on the head once and for all.
Cheers, to our hike up the mountain!
Great idea! i need my debts out of the way first but i never gave woofing a thought. And yes, fruit is outrageous here, expensive and quality can be poor. haha Yeah those lizards are pretty rad, is he a little fruit bat too?
Hey! Sorry it took me a while to respond to your post on my wall. I didn't see it. I was struggling for a week there eating my SAD vegetarian safe/comfort foods, but I am over that and back to HCRV. Every day that I am HCRV I feel so great and every day that I am eating SAD food I am, well, sad. I had a great day today, all raw. I'm realizing more and more every day that foods that aren't fruits, veggies, nut and seeds, are not actually real food. They are chemistry sets. I'm striving to put my health first and honor my true self, while fighting off the anxieties and fears that try to stop me. Sorry this was so long. But thank you so much for saying hi and checking up on mean. It means so much to me to know that people care and are supportive of me on this journey to health and happieness. I read your blog every day. I would love to hear more about how you are doing. Are you planning on transitioning to fully raw or are you going to stay with mostly raw and some cooked. Either way, you're doing amazing and really inspiring so many people.
So, Greenmama, I often see that you ask people things like "do you just want the feeling of security?" etc. I think that is a pretty sensible approach, but I wonder what the next step is if the response is affirmative?
