So last Saturday, I went into crazy town with the Dread Pirate. We were going to hear a seminar given by Robyn Openshaw, aka: Green Smoothie Girl. Parking was horrendous and traffic was insane...but we made it there ok somehow. At her seminars she does a raffle for her books and programs and even for a blendtec blender! People....I WON! I MEAN BIG TIME! It was so crazy! The DPR bought raffle tickets seriously on a last minute whim...and we won her complete "12 steps to Whole Foods" program and also the Blender! I was so shocked I could hardly breath! She asked me my name and I had to think hard to remember! Very exciting....but the best part? She has really inspired me to get back into raw food. Most of you know that I did raw a long time ago. The changes I saw in my body and in my health I would call real miracles. (if you don't know my story...you can read it on the side bar or here. sorry...it's so long) I maintained all of that for about 9 years, but in the last 2 or 3, I have really struggled. I have to say, that even as I am writing this...I am afraid of your judgement. I know that is really stupid...but I do. I have been such an advocate of healthy eating and talk about it all the time....but really have been a horrible example in the last couple of years. After hearing and talking with Robyn, I felt like it is just time! Time to get back into what I know is the right thing for me. I also like what GSG recommends....80% raw with some cooked foods, so it really is do-able for a life time. I learned before, that sustaining 100% raw was VERY difficult. I felt like Heaven was telling me...last Saturday...."I'm giving you a second chance". So, I'm putting it out there....just so you know that, I'm not perfect...I'm trying...still! And, I think I will go about it a little smarter this time. I will not beat myself up if I blow it...I will just carefully pick myself up and start again...forgiving myself, when I need to. Here is to second chances....thank Heaven.
