Back on track.

Wow, what a busy month...I can't believe November is almost over. I may have fallen off the bandwagon and eaten cooked foods after Halloween, but I'm cool with that. I don't need to beat myself up over food anymore. I'll just carb up on sugary yummy fruits and hope to stay raw. I've been working like everyday which has totally screwed up my workout schedule, but I'm in the proccess of getting it back on track. I'm still at the garden center at Lowes..and I'm learning tons about plants which…

Wishing I could break up with...


Sometimes I wish I could separate myself from food completely. Just let it go and never have to worry about it again. I spend too much time and energy thinking about fucking food. I’m pretty sick of it… It’s either the energy and mental power to stay 100% perfect and raw and to eat differently than everyone I know…or I’m fantasizing about cooked food…or I’m cheating on cooked vegan foods that makes me so mad at myself and makes me feel like shit. I hate being hungry…I love the act…

Day 5 & 6

I had to go to bed pretty early last night, so I didn’t get a chance to blog. Yesterday was a little tough for me. Not with staying on the diet or anything, but I ran 6.6 miles in 85 degree weather…which I’ve never even attempted to do before. I pretty much died haha I think I got kind of dehydrated and overheated, and I just felt off for the rest of the day. I didn’t even want my third nana meal, so I didn’t have enough calories. I also got a headache and couldn’t sleep. I had to wake up at…

Day 4

On my bike ride this morning, I stopped at the bank and noticed I had a missed call. I got the job I wanted at the garden center at Lowes! Lucky for me Lowes is in the same shopping center as the bank, so I went in and filled out paperwork…its going to be a hot job and a 3 mile bike ride to work, but I’m excited. Kind of nervous.. since I don’t really know anything about plants…but I want to learn and it’s definitely better than working at crapplebees. Today I biked 10 miles, layed out by…

Day 3

I’m kind of loving banana island. It makes eating so simple and I already feel so much better. My 5k time today kinda sucked, but that’s ok…as long as I stick to my schedule I’m happy. I got to lay out by the pool and get some reading done..Charles Dickens sure has a way with words. Tonight I biked to publix to pick up a couple of bunches of organic bananas, when I realized at the checkout I forgot my wallet. So, I got even more exercise than planned by making 2 trips. One thing I love about…

Day 2

All around it was a pretty nice Tuesday. I had two banana/water smoothies for breakfast and lunch and a big dinner of banana ice-cream (made with my wonderful Yonanas ice-cream maker I found at a thrift store). I woke up at 8:30…still not as early as I’d like, but I’ve been having trouble falling to sleep lately because I can’t stop all the thoughts in my head. I’ve also been having some pretty intense dreams this past week that wake me up throughout the night. Then,…

Day 1

Its time to get real.

As of today October 1, 2012 I am committing myself to a 100% raw lifestyle. Since a year ago I have been trying to be a raw vegan and always submit to food cravings. Last winter it was my mother’s delicious savory vegan soups that would knock me off the bandwagon. Lately, since joining the 80/10/10 lifestyle it has been cooked rice, pasta, and potatoes…even vegan sushi. My diet has been an obsession of mine since I was in junior high…

Everything is getting better

I may not be losing weight yet, but I can tell 80/10/10 is making a difference on my health. In late March when I first began this diet, I experienced a lot of stomach issues, but felt better energy. Half way into April I became really sick while I was on vacation-tonsilitis of some kind. Then half way through May I got sick again and began coughing up phlegm again. Back into October of last year I did a month long raw cleanse-low calorie and lots of juicing-and during that whole month I…

MY status on facebook:

"The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of "real food for real people" you'd better live real close to a real good hospital." Neal Barnard MD

This guy I know who is a going to school to be a doctor replied:

Such a bold statement. The difference is people have the option to consume red meat (every meal) just as one…

Another cold...

WHY? I was just super sick a month ago and today I woke up with a sore throat and all congested. Really bummed cause I needed my voice to be at its best to try out for the summer musical today....kind of ironic. Well at least if I don't make it I can blame it on my sickness right? I thought this diet was supposed to make me healthier...everyone around me is starting to notice how theres always something wrong with me. I have been eating great lately too...

Day 2 of being free!

Day 2 of being free from Crapplebees and living the 30bad lifestyle. 2 days completely raw =] (I struggle with not eating beans, potatoes, and rice) with loads of calories and even a jog first thing in the morning. I've caught myself up on sleep and I'm feeling really good. I've also gone these past 2 days completely makeup free and I went out in public,,just to the salvation army thrift store and to get fruit today...but I deserve some applause. I have some zits that I normally would cover…

Severe sore throat/tonsils today.

Well, it kind of sucks that I'm on vacation and I'm bed ridden all day. I don't wanna be negative, so at least I've had a whole day to myself to explore the site and do some learning. I've tried to sleep for hours, but I just lay here thinking. So far today I have been fasting, just drinking water and hot tea. I got a bit of fresh air and sun this morning. I don't know if this is the best way to go about healing, but fruit doesn't sound appealing right now...actually no food does. I might…

Boulder CO

I'm from Ohio, but visiting my friend in Colorado for 10 days. It is so beautiful here...the mountains are magical and there are so many eco conscious/healthy people. I was worried about traveling here and sticking to the diet, but so far I've been doing pretty good. I brought some dried fruit with me and I made my friend take me to whole foods yesterday. She was horrified at the amount of bananas I bought. I was horrified that the price of a super teeny watermelon was $5. I was like I could…
