I'm a reformed cooked-foodist who is married to an amazing and brilliant biker dude. I adore the Lord, enjoying God's creation, playing in the dirt, eating and living healthy, and riding my Chief.
Growing up, I suffered with asthma and allergies which limited physical activity. After years of drugs and being sick, I decided to take my health back into my own hands. I pursued the natural route and discovered the raw lifestyle in the process. I went raw in October 1, 2004 to get off my asthma meds. I started 2005 off with a 30-day challenge during which time I remained 100% raw. After the challenger, until 2007, I remained at 95% raw and felt fabulous! I went from 128# to 103#, my energy level soared and my health was phenomenal.
A major life change in July of 2007 brought me from a farm in TN to the suburbs of Atlanta, from being a SAHM to working full-time at a desk job, from eating raw to eating out a lot (SAD). I was up to 148# and felt like crap. I missed the raw lifestyle and decided to get my life and health back on track. From February 1 through 10th of 2009, I did a Master Cleanse and lost ten pounds. I attempted to get back to raw but was not consistent. Some days I was 100%, some days I was 50% and in between I was 75%. On my fifth anniversary of going raw - October 1, 2009 - I started another 30-day challenge which is where I'm at now (10/4/2009). I expect to stay the course this time and look forward to getting back to the phenomenal health I experienced before.
