Update- all the drama is over and all the cooked food is out of my body. I feel so much better. I feel like there was some big emotional releasing going on due to the EFT I did yesterday. It is an amazing technique and I highly recommend it. I'll be doing more of it as I go along. I am feeling so fine and getting ready to take Lincoln to the laundromat... He loves it and since the laundry room got bombed out in last weeks concrete explosion, we are off to the land of the triple loaders! Here is a picture of Lincoln making raw chocolate sauce last winter. Aww...

So this past few days with all of the serious demolition work and the full moon and all I have consumed some let's-just-say not optimal foods, due mainly to stress eating. I found them to be not so comforting. I got a major headache, twice and have been angry and irritable. I ate pizza and did not like it. That was a major breakthrough. I have basically come to the point where cheese, although it sounds good to me, just tastes gross. I love to eat fruit the best now. Especially sweet, juicy Bartlett pears. They have been so delicious this year. I did some EFT this morning and it brought up some major stuff... It was a tumultuous day to say the least. I am all raw today, though, and that always makes things feel better.

This last week has been very, very, active and productive in quite a few ways. As far as the construction on the wellness studio space goes, Felix has been working extremely diligently and with multiple large and extraordinarily loud power tools and soon we will have seven (yes 7!) big gorgeous windows where there were once just huge slabs of concrete! The grand finale will be tomorrow when the backhoe arrives to take the giant chunks of cement out of the walls... Lincoln will be beyond excited to wake up to some serious heavy machinery! I will be very happy when it is quiet again...
I have read Dr. Doug's 80/10/10 book and have been experimenting with his program/techniques. I love how I feel when I am doing the low fat, mono-mealing thing but have still been struggling with the emotional eating aspect of me... I have yet to EFT myself and must make some time for that soon, when it is quiet.
My Mom, who is the the world's best darling, and I were talking tonight and we decided that we, as a family, need a happy rambling van. So whenever any of us want to get away or take a little time out in nature/camp or what have you, we will be all set. Mom is interested in learning to kayak and so it would be great for her to get away for weekends, etc. It will be good for me to have as a get away car when things get too much for me and I am afraid my head will explode... We decided that it should have a really comfortable and roomy bed in the back and Linc just recently discovered a brand new, never used, boat sized Porto-potty abandoned in the old marine store that is in our side yard. The joys of living in a boat yard... So we are doing pretty well with this whole project already and now we will just start the van fund and wait for it to show up!
Love and blessings... XXOO

So I made it seven whole blissful 100% raw days and was feeling great, high and happy. Then I ate a piece of Felix's cooked birthday cake and that was all she wrote... (this is not the first time that I have been derailed by a birthday cake...)I feel like such an ass. Just when I start making some real progress, I go and blow it. So, I have been struggling to get back to raw and it isn't really working, plus it is the new moon and that is a tough time of the month for me, too. But, I was reading about his new moon in Virgo and it is supposed to be a great time for me to begin healing my health/weight issues. Speaking of that, why do people automatically assume that just because someone is obese they are ill. I am very, very heavy, over 120 lbs. overweight, BUT- I haven't been sick or to the doctor (except for chilbirth and a lyme tick bite) in nearly 10 YEARS!!!! My blood pressure is fine. I don't have diabetes. I have no digestion or gynecological issues. In short if you were to give me a physical and didn't know my weight you would consider me to be extremely healthy. I am just fat. And, by the way, I only lost like one pound during my stellar 100% week. So I ordered Dr. Doug's 80/10/10 book and am going to see what I think of that... I have an intuitive feeling that my liver is not happy digesting all the fat that I have been eating. We shall see.

I have big raw love for chia seeds! I made a glorious pudding from chia seeds and almond milk with honey and OH WOW! It was so good... Like a tapioca memory. Awww. By the way, these pictures are NOT of chia pudding! It isn't really all that attractive, unfortunately. Tastes outstanding though! These pictures are of a broccoli mash and miso gravy plate (from Ani Phyo's cookbook) and a pate' platter (from my own mind). They were both delicious.
I have committed to 30 days 100% raw. I am feeling great about it and have decided to continue with my diva diet principles. I am eating gorgeous, luxurious foods and lots of superfoods. I have noticed that when I eat lots of maca, green powder, algae, hemp seeds, etc., it is much easier for me to stay raw. I guess that eating all of the concentrated nutrition is what my body really wants. It doesn't want more calories, just more nutrients. I remember reading something about how most obese people are actually very malnourished and that is why they have such huge appetites. It is because they are literally starving to death so their bodies tell them "eat! eat! you are starving!" I think that I read that in the China Study. Excellent book by the way. I highly recommend it.
I am going to start some more batches of Kombucha going again today as well as some sprouts. I'm also going to work on my website, finally. And later, if I still have more energy, I will make some bread and veggie burgers to put in the dehydrator. And also some flax crackers, especially since Auntie Yvonne had such a love for them.
Oh, Lincoln got his first bee stings today. He got over the whole ordeal really quickly though and I am very proud of him. Bless him, my little prince, with the bee stings on his arm...
