Today's Symptom's: EXTREMEMLY painful labia. Stopped using the Perrins Blend and just using the Perrins Creme Complete. I read that a woman who had LS and was using the creams found that the Perrins Blend caused too much burning and just used the PCC and it worked. The skin looks like the LS is "lifting" off. So, that's a good thing right? I hope so!! Still no period? I week late???

May 6, 2010

Breakfast: 34 oz. carrot, apple, celery, beet, cilantro, ginger, lime, kale, dandelion.

Lunch: 24 oz. smoothie with water, orange, lemon, banana, strawberry, blueberry, peach, and spinach.

Dinner: Potluck...oriental cilantro cabbage salad, walnut field greens sweet salad, coconut asian field green salad, veggie sandwich (what I brought), kale avocado salad, macadamia nut cucumber hoerderve, frozen banana "soft serve".

Once again. TOO much food. Too late at night. Too much salt. Too much sweet.
I met FASCINATING people at the potluck tonight! Wish I could take them all home with me and talk for weeks!

Today's Symptom's: Labia swollen and burning, feel yucky from yesterday, sore arms from working out with weights again, Oh, and let's just say that I am "regular" again ;) I'll spare you now....

I'm stressing out a bit! I feel like I'm blowing my fast. Am I? Have I?
Did I not go long enough? That's what Agi (Agi's Raw Foods) told me yesterday.
Was I supposed to lose my mucoid plaque? Did I? Didn't I? Should I have water fasted longer? I'm craving all of this junk food I didn't crave before the feast?? WTHeck?? Help! What do I do now?

Breakfast: 30 oz. grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime.

3 oz. wheatgrass


Lunch: avocado, cucumber, romaine, tomato, alfalfa and sunflower sprouts, organic mustard, salt, pepper and oregano sandwich raw bread. Baby carrots.

Slice of Blueberry Mango Pie! Yummy!


Dinner: Salad with romain, celery, raw organic Kalamata olives, tomato, Italian parsley, hemp seeds and a tahini, dill, lemon, garlic, basil, salt dressing.

Big Regret: Ate a bowl of vegan Taco Soup with tortilla chips in it that I made for my family that was cooked! As soon as I finished I got a strong headache and stomach ache like there was a brick sitting in there.
What was I thinking????
Me + cooked food = heavy, yucky, icky, headachy, stupid!!!
A reminder that I am HUMAN and that it's okay. We Humans need to be CONSTANTLY reminded to make good choices.
Hopefully I am smart enough to learn from mistakes right? I just RE minded myself what cooked food feels like. Tastes awesome but feels not so awesome......

In The Dehydrator: Bar-b-que chips!

Today's Symptom's: Labia is burning! I hope it's "doing the job"!

Day 61 - Breaking The Feast - Day 2

May 2, 2010

Weight: 129.8

Today's Menu: ;)

2 oz. wheatgrass

Breakfast/Lunch: 38 oz. celery, carrot, apple, zucchini, cabbage, red leaf lettuce, chard, mint, ginger.

1 avocado! SOOOOOOO good with paprika and Himalayan salt! De-LISH!

I came home from church and made a raw bread recipe. I can't wait till it's done!
Here is the video I got the recipe from:

Dinner: Some delicious watermelon!

I feel wonderful! I woke up with chest tightness and head pressure but filled with JOY and GRATITUDE! I'm religiously putting on the Perrins blend cremes every night.
I know they will eventually go away and that I am healing. It's just going to take more time. Time I am willing to take! :)

Tomorrow I am going to go back to my aerobics class and get back into shape so that I can start teaching again.

I am going to sing at an old folks home tomorrow in our ward boundaries.

I have reached out to old friends and have made fun plans.

I have planned a family Spring party at our house.

I am singing with my daughter at church for Mother's Day.

I am going to a raw food pot luck on Tuesday and to my ward recipe exchange pot luck on Thursday.

I plan on going into the studio to lay the piano track for my 6th song and record the Spanish on the 5th song.

I have entered back into living life to it's fullest. Enjoying each and every day.
Choosing JOY and letting go of FEAR and TRUSTING in the Lord that He answers the prayers of the faithful.

I know that I can still choose to be happy no matter what happens the way that Viktor Frankle did in his book MANS SEARCH FOR MEANING.

Viktor Frankle was in a concentration camp, with NOTHING, not his degrees, his successes or accomplishments. Not a hair on his body or even a name just a number. Surrounded by filth, death, the dying, and diseased, not knowing where his family was or if they were even alive, alone amongst strangers, not knowing if he would live or die, without a SINGLE comfort, his freedom and dignity taken away, starving, beaten and insulted every day, frozen to the bone, working beyond strength, and yet........he CHOSE to be happy. Happiness IS beyond a shadow of a doubt a CHOICE!

I have faith which means that I don't know what the future holds, but I know that my Savior knows and that He loves me and knows what's best for me and that no matter what, as long as I am keeping the commandments and pressing forward and enduring to the end I will be blessed. The JOY that awaits in the next life is incomprehensible to us right now. I know that we must be tried. I know that like a muscle it needs the strain to be made strong. I AM STRONGER BECAUSE OF ALL OF THIS! I am being prepared for something. I don't know what....but God does.

I may never be healed........but I choose LIFE. I choose to LIVE it fully the best that I can. And if I keel over and die....then I will go to meet my Maker and know that I did the best I could and tried to live the best I could and kept the commandments the best I could. I submit my will to His and if His will is that I die, then it's what is supposed to be! Right?!

I HOPE that I will be blessed for taking the best care of my body as possible. I HOPE that I my prayers will be answered! I HOPE that all of my desires, dreams and wishes will come true. And I really do BELIEVE that they will somehow, someway, someday!

"Come what may....I choose to LOVE it!"

I choose JOY!
