update on my update. :)

I'm now living in a really sweet 1 bedroom apartment, and working two and a half days at the raw food restaurant.  The rest of the week, I'm working on painting and selling my art, and singing.  I just finished doing bgs for a gospel album.  It was a really fun project and reminded me of how much I love recording, something I did for years as a living in the late 80's.  I'm having the cassettes of my jingles (how hilarious is that:?) made into discs so I'll post some samples. Nostalgia for me, funny for you.  It's win-win. 

I'm also taking on more EFT clients, and enjoying expanding that part of my life.


Been using my Vitamix a lot, making green smoothies every morning and/or evening.  I eat really well at work, too, drinking green juices and making salads on my breaks.

I also am dating a fellow who is a food pusher.  Seriously!  And he eats a very *S.A.D. diet (*see bottom of page for meaning.) But it's not all him. I'm such a Food Ho that he doesn't have to push very hard.   Even though it gets harder and harder to *enjoy* the lapses into eating S.A.D. junk, I am drawn to these lapses like a moth to a flame.  I'm sure there are books written about it.  I've gone here before, I remember.  Even asked you guys for book titles on Emotional Eating.  I haven't acted on that yet and now that I'm revisiting the issue, I'm feeling like it's time to get on it and look up those suggestions

Self - Sabotage...qu'est-ce que c'est?  The thing I do when I'm just rawkin' along and then get the biggest case of the aw fuckits you could ever imagine.

One would think I would be motivated by a BIG TRIP I'm taking next month.  (I can hardly believe it, but I'm going to Maui for 10 days. This will be the biggest thing I've ever done.)  You know, bathing suits and all that.  I should be living on smoothies right now. In all fairness, I've been doing mostly really well, having recently shed 7 or 8 lbs.  But for the past couple days, I've been hanging out with my boyfriend (of 4 months...ooh, didn't I mention him?)  eating M&Ms . Maybe I'm protesting the bathing suit thing.  I haven't worn one in YEARS. Gonna get one of those pretty floral wraps, yesseree.

It would be cool though, when I'm in Hawaii, to make it a point to look up raw groups etc.  Know of any?  One of the women I'm traveling with is into raw foods as well as EFT, and I'm excited about that.  I really look forward to getting to chat more with her.  My hope is that while in this paradise, that I can film some raw and eft videos.  Just informal stuff.  It just seems a shame to waste that landscape!  I'll definitely post photos!!

Rawk On!

I just found your blog, and I am AMAZED by your transformation and commitment to raw foods! I am currently the mother of 2 (3, if you include my husband). I have recently found the power of juicing and would like to transition into a more holistic lifestyle, with the power of food. Unfortunately, my corn fed, meat and potatoes husband is not going to agree! I am hoping you could refer me to a few great resources\ books (other than your fabulous blog!) to get our family started on the rules of the raw diet. Do plan to read all of your posts, but in the meantime I admire your ability to grasp your potential by the horns, and that your realized that in order to do it required a commitment to your health and well being!
Be well!
Rachel T.
