I’m so excited, Brett is coming home tonight…it looks like he got a 4.0 for the semester again too….way to go Brett!!!

Exercise yesterday was Pilates….I do the Winsor Pilates 20 minute workout….I have it memorized so that I can do it in about 10-12 minutes while watching Joyce Meyer.

1/4 C oat bran, oil pill, pinapple smoothie, green drink

Butternut soup, 2 oz soy nut butter, apple, flour free bread, 1/4 avocado

homemade raw spaghetti sauce, (it was awesome!), zucchini pasta, cucumber, radish, chocolate/peanut butter smoothie.

For exercise I did “Bun’s of Steel Yoga”, another oldie but goodie…also about 45 minutes.  Lucky me also I got a massage at the Chiropractor.  I’ve had problems with the bottoms of my feet….and getting worse all the time….for the past month or two….I had a little of it last year too but it cleared up with the raw food and a colonic.  I had a massage about a week and a half ago too and it seemed like the pain left….but then it came back the next day worse.  I went on a 3 day juice fast and it seemed to almost disappear….then I started eating again and it came back….I was thinking that I needed another colonic and maybe to go all raw again….I’m still excited about going raw again anyway….and I do have flat feet so I was thinking that I needed to start looking in the orthopedic shoe department : )  I’m not a grandma yet….not for a long time.  Well, back to the massage….she cracked both of my feet in the middle and it was really really loud.  Today….even barefoot through the house….they don’t hurt….I can even push on the callus’s and they don’t hurt.

For food:  1/4 C oatbran, Pinacolada smoothie, oil pill, green drink

16 oz butternut squash soup…1/2 raw and 1/2 cooked….it wasn’t blending well all raw….but it tasted wonderful all together!   4 oz buckwheat with 1/2 C soy milk, 1/2 banana, 4 oz strawberries

16 oz Awesome Rawsome salad with an ear of corn….raw corn is so much better than cooked.  Sprouted bread, 1/4 avocado, Chocolate/peanut butter smoothie.

Yesterday I did Kathy Smith’s Fat Burning Work out…..it’s about an hour….maybe a little less….and very old….but good.  I like it because it gets all my muscles warmed up, toned and stretched….it’s an over all good feeling.

1/4 C oat bran, oil pill, strawberry/banana smoothie, green drink, vitamins

16 oz mung bean sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, cucumber, tomato, cucumber, matchstick carrots and radishes, 1/4 avocado…..OMG this was really good!

Homemade raw chili with corn and,  1 slice of Sprouted bread with 1/4 avocado and tomato slice, chocolate/peanut butter smoothie….this was OMG good too…..I love spring and all of this fresh food!


I watched and got to participate in a live chat on line with Angela Stokes and Matt Monarch….they’re raw food leaders.  I am still so fascinated with that life style….in a lot of ways it’s not me….but there is a real pull….and the short time that I did it I noticed a profound difference emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.  Look at Angela’s story when you get a chance (rawreform.com), she lost over 160 lbs….she now weighs less than that and has maintained it for I think 7 or 8 years….eating all raw.  Reading stories like hers, Shazzie, David Wolfe, Tanya Zavasta, the Butinko’s and more all inspired me to do it last year and it was a really nice experience….one that I’ve been trying to get back in to doing.  I’ve stayed over 50% raw, but the more the better.

I made an amazing salad today that’s similar to one I have in the recipes from last year….but it has more stuff….and was so good that it will be for lunch tomorrow.  It’s full of sprouts, raw corn….amazing….tomato, cucumber, radishes and avocado….everything was so juicy and fresh dressing was not needed or missed.

On Angel’s blog she lists what she eats each day….I really like that….I like to know exactly what people are doing to get the results that they’re getting and she inspired me to do the same so I’ll be journaling what I’m eating and any exercise that I’m doing too.    So I’ll be reporting the day before when I do it.

green drink, oil pill, 1/4 C oat bran,( 4 oz strawberries, 1/2 banana, 4 oz tofu, 1 C vanilla soy milk, stevia, banana extract….all blended to make a smoothie), vitamins.

12 spiralina/chlorella tabs, 16 oz salad with homemade dressing….it wasn’t good, 1/2 sweet potato….made into fries, 8 oz grapes, (chocolate/peanut butter Smoothie), vitamins.

Butternut soup, (this will be on the website and was really, really good….last night was cooked but I’m going to try raw tomorrow.)  8 oz salad with 4 oz sprouted garbanzo beans and 4 T Goddess Dressing.

I did some light yard work….washed and carried the patio chairs for exercise….not ideal….yeah for spring though!!!!
