Our peacock is back

Just a note to say that I am on Leslie's 2 mile walk instead of one. I aim to be on the 3 mile by the end of the month. And I am back on a plan. Green Smoothie in the morning, raw salad or soup for lunch and then a clean, healthy, possibly vegan... Read more
Had a really bad day yesterday
I did. It was emotionally low, eating low, decision making low... and I woke up incredibly depressed about it all. I am working what the trigger(s) might have been. Family? Weight? Numbers? Usually it takes more than one to set me off.

Update on my "Cleanse" and nearing my first goal
An update to the "Cleanse" I started. I put quotes around it because when I think of a "Cleanse", I think of water or juice cleanses. That's not what I did. It is a 28 day green smoothie, raw lunch with a vegan dinner. Believe it or not, I found... Read more

Just rambling about my strange day...
Just a strange day today. Noone felt right. Noone got along. Everyone was cranky. Even me. So much today for the light and love of clean eating spreading out before me. It was more like a dust devil. LOL... I did not feel clear headed and was mo... Read more
