Just keep getting back on that wagon...

I think I first discovered this site in 2008.  I instantly felt in my gut that this was right for me.  This was true health.  No fad, no uncertainty as to whether this was the best way to live.


But alas, I let things, trivial things, get in my way.  Time and time again.  Trying to get a quick fix, falling further off the rails, the endless "I'll start tomorrow" cycle.


I always come back though.  Even when I go to try a fad to lose a few quick kilos I always…

Here are days 9, 10, and 11:

Back after a long time!

So I've made the decision today to go back to LFRV : )


To clarify- I never really decided against LFRV...just sorta slipped and slid back to old ways of eating.  What can I say- it's been a year since I was truly LFRV (I've been just plain vegan since)....and although going back to eating a vegan diet that included cooked and sometimes processed and sometimes junk foods did not destroy my life whatsoever, I do miss that feeling of vivacity and being in love…

Good Morning Bananas

Feeling better, slept well :) <--- major thing for me!


Ok, so I did not make it through day 2 completely SAD free. But....I do feel much better with having eaten 95% raw (bananas). I woke up early today and actually felt like getting up and being productive. Love the morning time! It is so quiet and fresh. I will be getting some more bananas today, riper ones that I got before because I will be getting them in bulk and they ripen them to various stages for grocery stores,…

10 bananas for breakfast


I decided to go for it, made a a smoothie made of 10 bananas and some mixed berries this morning, lets see if my energy elevels are back high again. 


Also I want to feel happy, I used to feel like skipping when I have loads of nanas.


Will update later :)


I am so annoyed I don't have access to the site at work. Its banned for whatever reason.

why is running so hard?

Today I decided to go on my first real run in about a year or two and OMG so hard. I mean Im not a couch potato, I bike around 30 or 40 miles 5 to 6 days a week with no problem and I long board 2-3 times a week along with various other random activities. But holy cow! This 1 or 2 mile run beat me to the ground. I was huffing and puffing. I did track and field in highschool and this run made me think "holy @#$% how did i do this for 4 yrs?!??!" hahahaa. 


so my question is…

I'm moving! Hooray!

Someone is finally offering on my parent's house! Thank goodness...we've been having at least 5 showings a week for the past 2 months, it's been really inconvenient. 


I pretty much get to pick where we move even though I won't be there long. I'm searching for apartments within walking distance of various farm stands I know of. Maybe I could even get a job at one. Most of my stuff is already packed too. I might just sell my furniture...I prefer sleeping on the floor anyways.…

Can grazing be my problem?

Bit frustrated today, I feel I’ve been half doing stuff for so long, not progressing really.  The lack of energy is not a good thing, I can’t see how I can increase my calories, I had a smoothie this morning of 4 bananas, kale and lettuce for breakfast.  Then grazed on a 1lb of raw carrots.


Lunch was a huge stir fry veg, I divided them into two halves, half I stir fried for a couple of minutes and half I left raw and mixed the two together, I had a few spaghetti with it, like…

Nature vs. Computer

Nature vs. Computer


So what am I referring to? So many people jump out of bed in the morning in a hurry to get here or there. My vice is hte computer. I grab my water, and head for my office, sit in front of the computer and...BAM I am stuck all day. Immediate stimulation of the senses into a hard digital world inside. 


I took a different approach today. A few weeks ago, I moved a small table and chair from my closed in back porch to the open front porch.…

Food Fail

I was doing so good today, not hungry at all.


But around 10pm. I had cookies. and Doritos. this is stuff I would not ever normally eat. I haven't had Doritos for 2(?) years.  And I am not a particular fan of Chocol*te-Chip Cookies. 


What happened? It probably explains everything in the 80-10-10 which is on it's way. But I have seen where others are all good in the daytime, but not at night. 


I thought I would be strong. And the cravings had…

Written before I went 100%.

This post was written on 22 April 2011. I had been feeling rubbish having tried to live as cheaply as possible, even to the detriment of my health. I thought I could get away with living on less than $2 before dinner - oatmeal for breakfast then baked beans on toast for lunch. It lasted on and off for a few months. My nails got really brittle and my hair was just so dull and limp no matter what I did. Henna only covered the problem for a little while. My skin felt…

Any other RH Negative blood types out there??!

Hello!! I have been researching into my blood type and found some fascinating information...... hard to sum it all up here. I am AB rh negative. Apparently no one knows how the negative factor in the blood came about. other blood groups are linked to the Rhesus monkey (RH=rhesus), meaning most ppl originated from monkeys/chimps. The ppl with the neg factor in their blood are not. Yet how this blood type came about nobody knows. I am now establishing if there is a connection with this type of…
