Confessions of a Naughty Vegan

Sunday, November 03, 2013

My Man is on a fishing trip and has been gone for 10 days now..My plan was to do a quick cleanse while he was gone..I just love, love,, a good juice fast..I feel amazing after. I have been doing the start tomorrow thing, I am an ol pro at that one for sure..

I am totally out of control..I am using the fact that I am lonely to pacify myself with huge pastries, made with all the ugly ingredients. SUGAR, WT FLOUR, BUTTER, CREAM CHEESE, MILK, ugly!!!! I detest all of those things..The thought of eating them is so very wrong. Why, when someone else puts all the naughty together, serves it on pretty cellophane, do I think that is ok? I am driving right past, they need the business, such a nice family..The Ranch blueberry twists have me by the “balls” as my man would say…I am done..From this day forward I Kimmy, the girl that deserves to be treated better, will be refraining from going to the Ranch and eating the very naughty pastry..I promise!

I am so glad I got that off my chest, thanks for listening..

Have a bright and shiny day!!

    Kimmy! You're so open! We all fall sometimes. I think of it as a promise. You know, we detox, then we retox, then we detox.

Just let yourself be. Every time we fall, we have an opportunity to learn.

You'll be fine! I know you.

You may wish to read the McDougall site and see how eating potatoes and other comfort starches WITHOUT OIL can really satiate our hunger and also help us avoid temptations containing things that are bad for us.

    "I just wonder why..why do I so easily sway in a direction that makes me sick."

You can analyze that till kingdom come, but it will still boil down to: Because it tastes so good and has a very comforting effect!

Do you ever buy raw Almonds? Here is a sweet treat:
1 cup raw, sprouted almonds, 1 cup unsweetened coconut, 4 dates, 1 tsp. vanilla and a pinch of salt. Process with your food processor and form into balls, Put in the freezer for an hour and serve :-)
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
* Side Note: Deceptive Labeling
Actually no raw almonds been available in the U.S. since 2007 when the USDA ordered all almond growers to sterilize almonds in one of several ways: heat them using steam, irradiate them using a controversial ionization process, roast or blanch them, or treat them with propylene oxide (PPO).

PPO is a known carcinogen, and most countries, including the EU, have banned imported nuts treated with PPO. The chemical is so nasty that its even been banned by both the National Hot Rod and American Motorcycle Racing Associations, where it had been used as a fuel additive before it was deemed too dangerous.

The new rule created deceptive labeling. Almonds that have undergone chemical treatments or heating for pasteurization are still labeled "raw." Consumers who purchase "raw" almonds may well think that those almonds are natural and unprocessed. Moreover, there will be no label requirement to specify what kind of pasteurization treatment was used among the many approved methods or combination of options. See:

Just goes to show, my organic raw almonds, ARE NOT REALLY RAW!

    Eating fat, sugar and carbs make you crave more...?? Right! Fat, sugar and carbs. Tastes good, but when we dig deeper we know it's not good for us. It's hard but I have faith that you'll get back on track.

    90% of ALL media is owned by only 6 corporations. I think much of what we believe is an illusion.
I think "SUGAR, WT FLOUR, BUTTER, CREAM CHEESE, MILK" are fine in appropriate moderation for the individual.
Especially if you're using organic, however even then you need to read labels. Wood shavings are considered organic by our government, and some manufactures are using it, in cheese, ice cream, etc. Example: Organic Valley uses powdered cellulose made from wood pulp in its shredded-cheese products.
I buy organic flour, sugar, cheese, milk etc. It costs more, so I eat
If it's your choice not to ever eat these items, don't but when/if you do... Don't beat yourself up, that hurts you much more than occasionally eating your proclaimed forbidden foods.
Cheer up SparkSista emoticon

Cosmos is the boy or is he named differently?
I was thinking Cosmos being;cosmos and universe are both translated as Yuzhou, which literally translated means space-time. She fills a space in time in your heart.
She is adorable and I know will be loved.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to come a see me!!

Seventeen more days until...drum roll... that holiday that lovers celebrate. Woman for romance, men to keep them out of the dog house..hehehe With my husband in mind I bought this little goodie..I loved it because it covers the tummy..

I was really excited to put it on and strut my stuff in front of the mirror. So I did..I most definitely did not like how I looked at all. I have 17 days to drop and tone. I am on it. No pun intended.. I believe in love!!

Plan is to do what is best for me! So I will..

What is 17 days going to bring? It is up to us..We are in charge of our own destiny.

Shine on!

This absolutely gorgeous and relevant quote was in my mail this morning. I just had to share!

"Someone who takes the time to understand their relationship with source, who actively seeks alignment with their broader perspective, who deliberately seeks and finds alignment with who-they-really-are, is more charismatic, more attractive, more effective, and more powerful than a group of millions who have not achieved this alignment."

"Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy -- you're right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body."
- Esther Hicks

What is your bliss?

Keep your bright light shining!!

Just Cuz

I received this gift from my new girlfriend Jibbie. Thank you JIBBIE!! I want to reread it. I resonated with a number of things. It will be good for me to reread and take pride in the things that represent me.


Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp is anything but dull. They may be flamboyant and exciting. Even those born in this sign that seem quiet and unassuming have a vivid dream and fantasy life� they just prefer their excitement in private. They may be prone to unusual experiences. They are usually very visual. They may experience vivid dreams that make their waking life dull in comparison. This dream world may become their inspiration for creativity in writing, art or other endeavors.

Capricorn-Aquarius needs to find an outlet for their creativity. They have a deep need to communicate what they experience. They need to learn how to let go of negative criticism and lack of understanding by others. When they find someone who understands their creativity, they will be most happy.
Capricorn-Aquarius are responsible and may be reserved in manner. They can be critical or bossy, but they want to keep everything to high standards and succeed. They may have talents that are both creative and scientific. They may be driven to change things for the better.

Capricorn-Aquarius enjoys healthy competition. They like to be social, and love a good intellectual discussion. They can set goals for themselves and keep their nose to the grindstone until they achieve what they want. This ambition gives them a great deal of drive. They can often get away with breaking the rules in order to bring something new to light. They are hard workers and very innovative.
Capricorn-Aquarius must enjoy learning to avoid being thrown out of balance by life's unexpected challenges. If they learn to recognize the benefit even in negative experiences, they will go far. They feel a need for security, but at the same time they relish freedom. They need to find the right balance.
The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination is known to be disciplined, patient, loyal, traditional, ambitious, offbeat, progressive, cautious, practical, friendly, realistic, curious, stable, funny, confident, unique, attractive, competitive and multi-talented. They may also be rebellious, narrow-minded, cold, harsh, depressed, stubborn, secretive, aloof and over-critical.
They are good at business of any kind. They are methodical, exacting and can manage well. Capricorn steadies Aquarius' volatility, while Aquarius lends Capricorn some originality and fun. While Capricorn likes to establish and take stock of things, Aquarius likes to throw them around and see where they fall. They may be great philanthropists, or they may be selfish. They enjoy talking and entertaining.
Individuals born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp are proud of their triumphs in social and intellectual circles. They are good at earning a living. They are not so talented at maintaining personal relationships and may suffer difficulties in this area. They can be very perceptive and intuitive if they let themselves develop this talent.

Shine your light bright!!
