Raw Food Cleanse

I have been research raw diets and have more than plenty of information on raw food diets. I am excited to try some of the recipes I have found. I thought I would list some websites that I have found in my  search for raw food ideas.

Have fun with that list, it is a big one for sure!

Hormones are interesting things

I am intrigued by our hormones and how important they are to our overall wellbeing. I came across this article that I found very interesting and thought I would share it here. I think I fit a couple different body types but then again I am completely messed up right now so I am not surprised.


How hormones affect your body shape

Here is some really good information on the endocrine system of the body! I think it is very fascinating how the glands are all interwoven. If one isn't working it is like a domino effect and other glands will also not work efficiently. This explains why it is so difficult to diagnose people with strange symptoms it just turns into a guessing game.

The thyroid and other glands

It has been a while

I have been plugging away! I am anxiously awaiting lab results from my doctor to tell me how my hormones are doing. I sure hope they come in soon!!

I am staying stable with the weightloss. With no energy my workouts have been sparse and very low intensity. Kind of frustrating! I have been staying with my Shakeology which I think is my saving grace at the moment! I LOVE the stuff! Seriously you check it out !

We are working hard preparing for our trip to Oregon. The whole family went shopping on Saturday to fill in the gaps in wardrobes for the trip. The fights were few! Have you ever taken two preteen boys and two teenage girls shopping? Yeah not a good idea! Next time I will take the boys one day and the girls another. The only thing that saved our sanity was my husband was with us, so we were able to divide and conquer. We were victorious on everything except the camera--we really need a camera for the trip!!
