So Yes i am back :)
This time with different goals and different attitudes. This change isn't just about me anymore, its also about the things i care about.
If u can't tell from the title i am transitioning into a raw lifestyle. I'm not sure if this is going to be for the long haul but i want to give this my all.
I am likely to tweak it here and there as i'm not so keen on giving up meat altogether (in the long run) but i want to see how my body responds. I believe in listening to your body and it will tell me if i find the balance.
This is definitely going to be a challenge but i am learning 'other' reasons for dropping the crap food.
To be brief its about discontinuing my support of an industry that frankly does not give a damn about my well-being. With propelling and using GMO's, harmful ingredients, destruction and pollution of our environment, false advertising and inhumane treatment as just some of the offenses i have in mind.
I want to drastically reduce my consumption of their products AND eat the best i can.
Today i am starting this journey by going Raw probably 50-60% to begin and see where to go from there.
I'm not gonna make it complicated but just start with eating apples, blueberries, cherries, apricots, carrots, baby spinach, kiwis, etc just as they are. But i will probably have one heavier, more regular meal for lunch/dinner just so its not SO drastic.
When i am in social situations (like this Sunday i am going to a BBQ) I am going to eat 'normally' but still avoid processed crap like chips and soda but definitely have some BBQ ribs or whatever it may be. I don't want to be one of 'those' party poopers. HAHA
What i bought at Safeway today:
I went to safeway before work. Oh i love not having to be there until 10am!
-Blueberries (a TON of them for Cheap!)
-Seedless Watermelon ---> It this gentically modified? Dang i didn't think of that
-Ice cream ---> i couldn't resist! Its been SO hot lately
-Lunchable ---> Also couldn't resist! LOL
Saturday there is the saturday market. While i do work that day, it isn't until noon so i can definitely make it. I read that its a good idea to go to those things toward the end to get even better deals but oh well i am just so excited. I get my first paycheck tomorrow (and i don't work) and i can't spend much of it but i do plan on getting some yummy things/
Yay im so excited!

It's been forever since i've written... But i haven't completely fallen off the wagon - just sorta. Especially with things like Soda but i am working on getting that under control by drinking hot tea...
Oh yeah... IM SICK! i have a awful sore throat. Before and after taking a shower this morning at my boyfriends, i coughed up that junk at the back of my throat. It was weird, i just coughed and out it came (much easier than normal). My boyfriend got me sick, bastard! But he made up for it today by taking me to Ulta. I love that store. And i finally signed up for their membership thing. But i got a smashbox kit worth $140 for $39 on sale. And a little ulta kit for $10 on sale and buy 1 get 1 free Revlon. So i got my foundation and tried their mineral powder - which isn't anything special. So yeah, i spent more than i wanted to.. lol
So i didn't get a 4.0 last term... Instead i got a A in PS 101, A- in CS 106, and B+ in BA 213.. Bleh But i am going to do better this term. Actually i just took my managerial accounting midterm on Wednesday and i think it went pretty well. And i have a speech on thursday for my speech class too. Last two weeks of school have been sooo hectic! I am ready for this term to be over... Because after this term I will have my business school pre req completed - even though i still can't take classes til fall! Eh, oh well
well, this week should be less crazy. i am trying to not let the craziness take over my life but wow its hard

so i have been eating well on and off but i have been out of food for a while. Usually i would walk and get the essentials but it has been freezing cold and raining - on top of being super busy. So i have been eating out...But for the most part i have an 8 inch turkey sandwich. Better than mcdonalds right? But on sundays they are closed so today i went to Chipotle for lunch.Luckily, i don't like burritos so i get the tacos with almost nothing on them (compared to the burritos) so its only at 520calories or so. Not bad. But now i am sooooo full. i think i scarfed it down too fast haha i only had a bowl of cereal which doesn't keep me full for very long. But once again, it didnt even taste very good. I really wanted that turkey sandwich. lol Or ome kalua pork and cabbage... or enchiladas!
well before 'that time' hit, my weight was about the same. So at least it doesn't seem like i have done too much damage.
So today sergio is taking me to get some groceries. FINALLY!
And finals start tomorrow.
Tomorrow i have my computer science final but i wont be studying... lol just need to make a note card...
Tuesday is my political science final which sounds like it may be easier than the midterm - not even a essay question this time. But i definitely need to review for a few hours.
And Thursday is my accounting.. I'll be honest, i have been slacking with the readings in that class so i have a LOT to go over. But i have all tuesday (PS final ends at 10am) and wednesday to study so i think all should go pretty well.
I am a bit concerned with my CS class because my grade is right at 89% and haven't gotten a B at all in college so i want to keep that record going. If i get a 90 on the final, i will just get by with a A- (argh, i hate those minuses) which is good enough for me... But if i do get a B... i will be very upset with myself coz i know i can do this. Oh and i got the last exam back and i got an 88 - i missed one big question worth 10pts. i just went through the process too fast but i know how to do it. i am the one helping other people. Argh Isnt that annoying?
So in between the studying, i am going to start to tidy up my room. It is on the verge of disaster. haha i swear, once midterms hit, i am so bad with keeping my room tidy. I have combs in my little paper drawer, wrapped presents on top of my bunnies maze house, a load of clothes on my desk chair... But i am so strange - i will get in moods where i just want to clean, clean, clean... and other times i just reeeeallllyyy dont want to. So i figure if i start with just 30-60minutes a day of reorganizing, it will slowly get better. Oh and i also have to rearrange my room again. This time it isn't just for fun... I need to move my desk near the outlet because i don't want cords all over (for my bunnies safety). So this requires a whole shift of not only the desk but everything. But first i gotta store my AC unit at my Bfs (big and bulky) and probably move my suitcases too as they take so much room. And go through some stuff and throw out some things. So consider all the winter cleaning a big long workout. haha
But i love the feeling of a newly reorganized and rearranged room - it just feels GGRRRREEEAAAT! haha
Okay so i should get working on my notecard before i go grocery shopping... but right now thinking of cleaning... i want to clean! That reminds me... Our shower reeeally needs a good scrub. Hasnt been cleaned in like 3 months! Ew, i know.
I wish there are just 5 more hours in a day... i could get so much more done and still have a life.
Oh so did i mention i joined a professional business fraternity? i think it did - AKPsi. Well, its been keeping me buuussyyy. Not to mention some issues with a particular person. It has been bothering me because i have gotten to used to dealing with only the people i want to deal with. But if i want to continue with AKPsi, i just have to deal with that negativity.
So on a heavier note............ its almost that time of the year that my mom passed away. I really cant believe it has been almost a year. i try not think about it because it just... sucks. Especially during the holidays because my 'family' always was my mom and my sister. So a year ago half my family was taken from me.
I try so hard not to cry but the thought of never having a real christmas kills me. I mean, i spend all the holidays with my bf and his parents! I know i should be gratful for what i have... but well... nevermind.
Anyways let me get to studying, grocery shopping and if i am lucky, cleaning a little.
