Happy New Year, Everyone!

Happy New Year! I'm so excited about 2010. 2009 was really rough for me. Too many negative things happened in my life. There will be some big changes for me and I'll keep you posted. By then end of the month, I'll be posting my blogs elsewhere. I'll let you know.

As for my raw vegan life, it's still there. Winter has been hard being 100% raw but I'm high raw. I suppose I could be all raw in winter except that with all that I'm juggling, I just get tired and....lazy. :P That needs to change. What I've done so far is convert my balcony into a cool storage area. My fridge is small to store all my fruits and vegetables, so I store my pineapple, mango and oranges on the balcony to slow down the ripening process. It has helped me quite nicely. I drink warm, caffeine-free tea and have increased my greens.

I've been going to bed early and getting up early, as early as 4am. It's been great. I need some me time and I find that 4am allows me to meditate and devote some me time. I encourage you to try it. I used to go to bed at 11pm or midnight. I've been to bed as early as 8pm. I don't watch tv that much anymore. The only show I watch , I tape all week and then save for the weekend. I still am a movie freak and that won't stop. However, that is saved for the weekend.

It's 9:16pam and it's way past my bed time. Hahaha. Talk to you soon.

High raw is awesome.. I believe that you don't have to be 100% raw to receive the benefits of the raw diet. But if you are health compromised then the closer to 100% the better. I am 100% right now but I have 50 more lbs to lose.
Good luck to you!

Hey Debra, I don't want to be obsessed with my raw diet. Right now during this wretched winter, I've been around 98% raw. I need the odd warm soup from time to time.

Great job on losing the weight. Keep it up!

Sounds like you have a nice healthy routine going on! Keep up the good work. I'm in a healthy groove as well, except for my waking and sleeping hours are different.
