Fitness Tips, Storms, Autism, Raw Love

Oh...I wear this ribbon proudly :) Actually I wear earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a watch AND ring!!!!!!! No...seriously I do :)
Before I start my post, be sure to check out the new cool things I've added to the blog...photos and whatnot. Also, I've updated the rawsome blogs, but not the cool websites. ONE thing...ONE day at a time.

Today was another busy day. Up at 7.....ran Tootsie Pop to Music Therapy for 8....then home for 9:30. 2 therapist came over until 12:30. Back in the car to an evaluation for Physical Therapy....ah ya ya..... It was super easy to be raw-on-the-go. I grab a few flax/onion bread crackers.....1 avocado....a quick smoothie and some fruit. Out the door I went!

Starting on Thursday-Monday I am going on a green smoothie feast! I am SUPER excited about it and I know know know know I can do it! This is NOT a matter of will power or any other such nonsense.... a person is either ready or they are not. I am ready for this. I am researching great green smoothie recipes and I will blog EVERY DAY and ensure that I keep you all detailed about what's going on. Also for those who emailed me.....starting Thursday with the green smoothie goodness 5 days, I will start to re-post my menu. Some of you mentioned that it really helped you out with ideas and I am hoping to provide inspiration in any way that I can. Because what I have learned from this journey INTO THE RAW is that we pick up snidbits from everyone in the community and compile it to see what works best for us and then we plan our own raw destiny. So hopefully my blog and my menus can help motivate and inspire others. ESPECIALLY moms and people on budgets. The reason that I say that is because those are usually (in my experience) the people who feel like they CAN'T be raw b/c "life" is in the way and I want to assure them that they (and you) can do W-H-A-T-E-V-E-R you set your mind too.

Speaking of which...I am in the process of visualizing some amazing things coming into my life. Though I can't mention what they are yet,,,, please take a few seconds and focus positivity this way for me.....let's all take a few seconds...........ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........ahhhhhhhh
Thanks ;-)

Today I made cacao/flax crackers. When I take them out of the dehydrator tomorrow and taste them, I'll let you know what I think of them and then I promise to share the recipe. ANYway that I can get in superfoods while out and about is a +plus in my book!

I have some new ideas about my raw journey. Well, as I mentioned on Thursday I start the green smoothie goodness 5 day extravaganza....but I am going to ensure that I have one green smoothie everyday for breakfast from here on out. At one point I was really great about doing that, but then I got sooooo comfortable in my raw lifestyle (almost four months at 100% ) that I slowly got back into "breakfast" type raw breakfasts. They aren't anywhere near as fulfilling as drinking a raw smoothie/juice on an empty stomach. Also, I am back rebounding and with a 3 year old kiddo with Autism...rebounding in an open room isn't only nearly impossible, it's dangerous! What I have learned to do is to get rid of any ideas of perfection and just do what fits for my life and lifestyle. There is no one (that matters:) sitting in judgment of everything I do. I DESIGN THIS! I write the pages inside the chapters of the book of my life. With that short monologue behind me, I can get on the rebounder WITH my daughter and put on a few good tunes and get in a good 15 minutes of rebounding (with 10 sec breaks in between). That is pretty darn great I believe! So all of you at home/work/library reading this who normally do NOT have distraction this is your wake up call to get off your butt and just do it!!! Sneak in a few pushups on your knees...reverse over and get in a few ab exercises....dance around as if you are a disco club and just let loose b/c if my family journey through Hurricane Katrina and my daughter's battle with Autism have taught me anything....it is that LIFE IS happening N-O-W! NOT tomorrow....NOT after you lose the 30#......NOT after you get the significant other of your dreams.....but right now. Life is happening in the moments that most miss b/c they are yelling at the driver in front of them for cutting them off while their kids sit terrified in the backseat when they could show compassion for that "hurried" soul and teach their kids ANOTHER lesson. Life is happening when you wake up with a tummy ache 15 minutes late and can't find your keys. Life is happening when an old friend calls while you are swamped with work/home life and you don't pick up. Point is::::: LIFE IS HAPPENING NOW!!!!!!! And I feel so blessed to be living mine. Don't you?
