Maybe it’s because I’m finally feeling better, but I have been feeling so filled with inspiration and motivation to do so many different things.
Somehow the raw food diet creeped into my life again. This time super easily. I thought it would have been harder. The past 2 weeks, when I was super duper sick, I decided to go on a mini 4 day juice fast. I had green juices and some fun smoothies for 4 days. It was all fantastic except for the no pooping part. I’m sorry, but I do enjoy going number 2. I love it! It’s one of my favorite times of the day. It just feels great. Besides the no pooping thing, though, the juice fast was awesome and it tremendously helped to make me feel much MUCH better. I’ve pretty much had a green juice every day since then.
Learning French is really exciting for me. I can’t wait to go home and finally get started on it. I’ve been dreaming about it! I keep saying my favorite sentence in French over and over: “Je regrette, mais ce n’est pas très confortable pour moi comme ça.” In English, it translates to: “I’m sorry, but it is not very comfortable for me that way.” I find it utterly hilarious and use it all the time, randomly. It’s just so much fun to say.
I’ve also been very interested in using my Vibram Five Fingers more often. I used to wear them 24/7 every day all the time… but then the move to the new apartment happened and I lost them for a while. Oops. But we finally found them and I just need to wash them. I want to start running barefoot (well, wearing my vibram’s) and it’s just in time because it’s finally getting warmer! I absolutely hate the winter. It’s terrible. People are always sick, it’s too cold to go outside and enjoy the sun… I’m much more of a spring/summer kind of gal. I love it. I can’t get enough sun!
Speaking of sun, I’ve been really looking forward to wearing my Vibrams out to Lake Mead, Red Rock, Mt. Charleston. I want to take a trip out to Joshua Tree, perhaps. Maybe do a little camping. Sounds super fun. I just want to get out and do something. Anything. My body is super active right now since I’ve been eating more raw foods. I want to go, go, go!
I’ve been reading “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert and just finished the Italy section. I am half relieved, half not to be done with it. I really enjoyed it. I’m semi-happy to be done with the section, though, because I always wanted to eat Italian food. I kept dreaming of Carrabba’s and Olive Garden. Actually made a few trips… had a few good eats… but I am glad it’s over because otherwise I’d just get fat.
Life is good… looking forward to starting all of my little projects. I think I’ll bring back the comment system in case anyone has even stumbled onto this little site. I originally took it off because I kept getting a ton of Russian spam comments, but I think I’ll take the chance and bring back the comments. I learned of a plugin I could use with WordPress that should take care of the spam. We shall see.
C’est la vie!
