It has been a long time!!!!!
I am back because I missed all of you! I hope you all are well, happy, and healthy! Me---I am doing my best to keep myself fit and strong. I have been eating well… still not raw but mostly vegetarian and I haven’t relapsed on my sugar habit. Personally I feel that being black, you have to adjust from eating all the spices and creams and slave food to get to a place of eating RAW! I personally haven't eaten beef or pork in years but I like seasoning! Black folks like to taste thier food but I recognize that is why we have diabetes and heart disease at such high rates. So...to quote Sam Cooke... "Change Gone Come!" I must say that I am happy that I don’t have my sweet craving anymore which means I don’t have the “shakes!” LOL!
I am going home to visit as my sister who has had a beautiful baby boy. I am sooo excited about going home and I pray that I stay focused on eating healthy and remember what it is that I am trying to do. If you read my previous post, they are all what we Black people call THICK but they are really kinda FAT! now you must understand that if you don't already... that what Black people and white people consider to be fat is 2 VERY different things, I say that because we have to keep things in perspective! :-) If a black woman is 20-30 pounds over weight..she is still considered to be VERY sexy (You know I am talking about me now!!!...but it is true.... :-) So my family...in all their beauty might try to stuff me with ribs, sweet potato pie and cheese steak hoagies… let us pray that I can resist the devil!!!!
I have prepared some good vegetarian and vegan meals because many things I used to eat don’t appeal to me anymore and I want it to stay that way. For example, I had to switch to natural deodorant because my underarms became so irritated. I did some research and found that most deodorants have ALUMINUM in them which prevent us from sweating. Some suspect that this causes cancer…WTF!?!?!?!?! Why the hell do they put aluminum when we have natural “stuff” that can do the same thing without being toxic to human beings? It seems to me that the FDA, ATF, CIA, FBI, ASS whoever…. Should regulate these industries better….but I digress…. Where is the human in humanity?!?!?!
It is important for us to be aware of what we put in our bodies, on our skin and partake of in our environments…we have to for our own health’s sake.
So I am moving down the path of life change and I want to always remember what is important and to take care of myself. I have been on my treadmill which is great and the other day I used my weights for the first time in a long time. I swear to you after 2 sets of lunges I thought my knees were going to buckle like a 90 year old woman on crack! Sweat dripped down my face and neck as I screamed in what I wouldn’t call pain but my muscles were saying “what is your lazy ass trying to do??” I told myself this is apart of the “transition” and that as long as I kept at, it would get easier.. well… I hope I feel for that crap!
So… when I get back, I am going to do a 3 week fast so I will keep you posted. I want to do some more cleansing and loose more weight. Plus.. I can save money! LOL! I didn’t realize how expensive food was until I stopped eating!
See you soon and I send you my love and support on your journey.
