Happy New Year

1 Jan

It is finally 2012….

It was really quiet today in the house and I rather enjoyed it. Ok, well it was quiet today while Maddock, Blaise and Jona napped. I sat by myself looking up recipes, craft ideas, juicing and doing my nails. It was really enjoyable. I was not hung over, not in the least. I went to bed at around 9pm last night. I was up at 6:30am today and got a fresh start on a new day in the new year.

I really did reflect today on who I was 6 years ago. Prior to me moving to Georgia I was living in Northern California and living a pretty carefree lifestyle. I didn’t worry about my health or taking care of myself. I was living in the moment. I was working at a restaurant, going to school and partying lots and lots. There was always something to do and myself and my friends were always there. If you put the clock back 6 years I wouldn’t be getting up at 6:30am, I would be maybe going to be at that time.

I thought today about how different I am now, how much I have changed. There are still many things inside of me that are the same, still things that need working on, still vices that need to be worked out. As a whole though I really think I have come such a long way. Sometimes I look back and cringe at the person I used to be, I guess that I had to be her for a while before I could be the me now.

I am starting my 10 day juice fast/cleanse tomorrow. I am not doing it as some diet fad. I am doing it to re-train my brain on the foods that I am craving. Yes, I have a child with PWS. Yes, we eat really healthy in our house. Well, my kids eat healthy. I on the other hand, if and when I eat is not mindful and lately can be really unhealthy. I really need a change. I really need a reboot and a recharge.

So here I go on this journey to reprogram my brain. I just finally finished watching “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”

I think it is one of the documentaries that everybody needs to see. It is so motivating and inspiring.

I am also currently reading “Crazy Sexy Diet” written by Kris Carr. She is one inspirational sexy lady. Another really good inspirational book.

Here is a quote from the book:

Are you ready to live like you mean it? Are you ready to get out of your slump, over your fear, and plug into your Crazy Sexy potential? For those of you who are new to the Crazy Sexy concept, let me lay it out for you. Crazy = bold, out of the box, forward thinking, and status quo challenging. Sexy = confident, in touch, whole, passionate, and conscious. Sound good? Well, the Crazy Sexy red phone is ringing—loud and clear. Pick up, gorgeous!

Carr, Kris (2010-10-27). Crazy Sexy Diet (p. 1). Globe Pequot. Kindle Edition.

I just feel like it is time to make some serious shifts in my life.

I am not doing this as some New Years Resolution. I am doing this because I want to be healthy. I want to be active. I want to be full of energy. I want to heal my digestive system. I want to have a body that works well and insides that work harmoniously with each other.

Ok, so here is to new beginnings as a new healthy me. I want to see if the food-mind connection is really real.
