Good luck enchantress, hope to hear from you again in the near future xxxx

Weekend is here at last..soo pleased smiling smiley been out to the organic shop.. bought err..14 oranges..and 10 satsuma..the lady didnt bat an eyelid..I love shopping at the organic store rather than the mainstream rubbishy supermarkets smiling smiley ..nobody stares when I buy more fruit than I can carry down there!! lol

cant believe how nice and sunny it is..after a week of rain and freeezing weather

I am not hungry at all.. its very weird..but all I crave is orange juice oranges..and more oranges..soo thats what I am having!!

Treated myself to some lovely glass jars for preserving and for keeping nut milk in..thats one thing I do like and can drink easily..so got plenty of nuts too and goji berries for when I really cant have anything to eat..can drink some cals at least

Love ya xxx

i love oranges too rawdancer .. i think ive mentioned here before that the oils in the peel are considered a very calming essential oil .. so its no suprise when im feeling low that i crave oranges ! .. smiling smiley

julie i was thinking another thing about your blemish breakouts .. every time i dye my hair i get a round of pimples you wouldnt beleive ..not just forehead ..everywhere .. cheeks .. chin nose .. even arcoss the top of my back

im wondering if there is a connection .. there sure seems to be ..by the time my skin settles down its pretty much time to dye again LOL endless cycle .. this last time i let my roots get wayyyyyyyy longer then normal and my skin was clearer longer

sure makes me go hmmm ... smiling smiley

aww you two sickies ! wish i cold pop on over in my star wars type machine and nurse you both back to wellness hehe smiling smiley

just keep assaulting your bodies with the greens adn oranges ..tiss the season i reackon not much you can except pour in the nutrients and wait it out !

Julie have you considered that maybe you and your fella may need to get some outside counselling ... when you guys start to fight more then theres peace its not healthy for either one of you

i had another blow out with my guy this weekend over that stupid stuff he did with that girl on the internet

he got down on his knees and begged me to go see a counselor with him to work through it as i cant seem to let it go ..and he cant have me keep throwing it in his face forever .. whichis true .. so thats where were at lol smiling smiley

thought i would add this today .. it came in my email from my mom

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.

You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time.

You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You'll fight with your best friend.

You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.

You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone
you love.

So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end,be afraid that it will never begin.

hi ladies,

thanks for asking about me jodi. =) last night we went to a vegan buffet for dinner at one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants. after we ate i felt...well...stoned! i don't know if it was the soy, potatoes, bread, or just all of it together but i was completely spaced out!! i had to have my husband take over the car because i almost got us in an accident while driving. how crazy is that!? it's amazing how your body reacts to some of those foods after you've elminated them for awhile.

so today i've been eating all raw and feel great. it's funny, it's almost like i have to give up my "love affair" with cooked/processed food. it reminds me of how i've had to give up my "love affair" with my eating disorder. anyone else ever feel like that?

i hope everyone who isn't feeling well has a speedy recovery. =)

ps.-julie, do you have any pictures of the jewelry you make? i'd love to see what you do.

hey everyone! so sorry i havent posted in sooo long!! i still check everyday and read up on how everyone is doing but just havnt been able to sit down and reply. i have been doing alright just really busy. going through a wierd time right now...i live in san diego and we are having tons of fires right now. the worst we have ever had. we had to pack up all our stuff just in case it gets closer but i think our house is going to be ok. it just scary because the whole sky is grey and ash is flying everywhere, i can tell its doing a number on my body, i feel really wierd and my skin is breaking out like crazy. any ideas to keep all this smoke and ash out of my body?? school has been cancelled and work has been closed so its a forced reason to actually relax.
how is everyone else doing?? im so sorry to hear everyone is sick. keep up the vitamin c. well i better go see how things are going but i hope everyone feels better. have a good week!!!

Jodi, get some craniosacral....it's so great for releasing those 'irrational' feelings we have (patterns). There's no shame in having these things - everyone has them. It's surprising how both simple and difficult to deal with them....simple, because they usually stem from things we've known all along, and difficult because they have an amazing grip on us.

Emotional detox is so similar to physical detox. Things come out and announce themselves and we freak out, even though we've been carrying them around forever-but they're scary to see.

CST works best if you are consciously willing to allow the truth to be whatever it is. Very likely you have a good relationship which would only get better if it were a little 'cleaner' that is, if your old worries were 'detoxed'.

He wouldn't beg you for NOTHING, would he......

Feeling much better than what I was, did go doc's, more tests, managed to keep away from more meds. Hubby & I still a bit off at mo, been talking more. Had spiritual healing last night, lots of heat around my head( I wonder why) as if I did not know! I really need to get myself sorted! Got meating today with another outlet for my jewellery "wish me luck".

Great to hear from you Ali, wow! that sounds like one of my nightmares, sky turning grey and ash about the place, use the time out to focus & relax, although I think I would be freaking out about the colour of my surroundings & whats going on, I am such a worrier. I need sun & lots of light & colour in my life. Take really good care thinking of you, keep you chin up , keep smiling sweetie XXX

Feeling any better yet raw dancer?

Hope you are feeling little better rawdancer? Hows things your way Ali hope the fires are calming down now?

I noticed I have been weighing myself a little more than usual which i'm concerned about, I think I do it more the bulid up towards my period, & now it is coming into winter, not being as active I think I'm starting to get a little paranoid, which is something I dont want to get back into! Does anyone else do this?

Having tests done for celiac, so I have to consume some wheat & gluten which I'm not liking or my body, starting to get breakouts again, skin was doing well when I cut them out!

Does anyone find the more raw they go the less bloated before your period you get? it only the bloating that gets me paranoid starting to think I'm getting fat this happens every month, I try & tell myself its only the time of the month, & it will go down after but I get so down & consumed by it.

Well, must o now do take care all Love Ju XXXX

I've got a diary here too, but it seems like this one is really hoppin', so think I'll post some thoughts here.

I, too, have an ED, though not a very popular one: compulsive overeating/addiction to food. I've only been raw for a week, but don't really notice much of a change in the fact that I want to eat. Ultimately, it's not about the food. It's about hiding from life.

Anyway, hello all!

Hi wrenbrrd,

I used to be a complusive overeater/ addicted too, thats how things started off for me, & yes I did it back then to hide from the turmoils of life I was about 16 years old then, I was in my comfort zone, food was my love & safety. Its facing & learning & accepting what it is you are hiding from in life, to enable you move on to what you really want and achive, not to run away and hide under your comfort blanket so to speak. Why is it you want to hide from life sweetie, if you don't mind me asking?
In the mean time take good care, look forward to your posts, we are all here for support.

Whishng you all the best! JuX
