  2. So happy with my naturopath appt! Some of my toxin levels are still over 100 but under 200 which is way better than my last appt! Everything improved except for my liver is very unhappy I really cant stop consuming dandelion and nettle juice they are both so important to the liver! They taste awful but they work

    My B12 is a little lower than we would like to see it so I picked up a liquid supplement. My vitamin D is way too low, taking a 2 month vaca south sounds nice but a liquid supp. will do too. My cortisol level is back to normal! I'm a little congested in my limbs in the lymph system, gotta get back to using the lymph drainage machine daily.

    I feel so good about my appt! Still lots of work to be done, I dont think it'll ever stop but its good to have something to focus on.


    I went out to eat again at the new restaurant for dinner

    Had a few bites of the caesar salad

    A few bites of poutine - looked and tasted like the 'real' thing it was pretty disgustingly good

    1/4 cup of coleslaw

    I had the fiery tofu thai bowl which wasnt bad, I rarely eat tofu I kinda expected more veggies than tofu but it was still good

    For desert I had some chocolate covered brazil nuts, banana, cherries and walnuts which is still yummy yup.


    Tomorrow back and bi!! Im looking up different variations and ways of stretching which is making me very excited for the work out tomorrow!

    yummy salad - same as the last few days, coz its so damn good. Topping the night off with a mug of vegan hot chocolate coz im bloody freezing,!

  10. Maca is a great superfood!! Here's some info on it, Im running low on it and need to order a bulk order!!

    As an adaptogen, maca works broadly to contribute to overall well being. It nourishes and calms the nerves with calcium, phosphorus, vitamins B1 and B12 , and fatty acids, all of which work beneficially on the nervous system.

    It stimulates the appetite and aids in digestion with calcium, vitamins B1 and B2, B12, and fatty acids. Its phosphorus is a primary building block in the cell fuels Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and glucose-6-phosphate (G6P).

    At the same time it supports the adrenal glands so they don't have to rely on damaging corticol to fuel the body. Its sterols, calcium, and vitamin C help build muscle mass and its starches aid in physical endurance. Its alkaloids help the body assimiliate all these nutrients just where they are required.

    Increases energy and endurance

    Increases stamina

    Improves sexual function in men and women

    Enhances fertility in people and animals

    Reduces hormonal dysfunction during menopause & andropause

    Can regulate hormonal imbalances

    Has a beneficial action on the circulatory system; Speeds wound healing and reduces anemia

    Enhances memory, learning, and mental ability

    Has a beneficial action on the circulatory system; gives skin a more youthful appearance

    Good for healthy teeth and bones

    Acts as a fungistatic and bacteriostatic

    Acts as an anticarcinogen and antioxidant

    Is an alternative to anabolic steroids, helps to build muscle

    Is non addictive

  11. had a simple green smoothie(1 liter) bananas, red chard, vega, coconut oil, honey, water, himalayan salt, chlorella)

    Im on a peanut butter kick, Ive had a few spoonfuls of peanut butter here and there had to give my bf the jar before I finished it all! I'm going to switch to raw nut butters because they dont have Aflatoxins which are nasty carcinogenic toxins made by fungi that grow on peanuts, its resistant to heat so roasting them doesnt get rid of the fungi. Jungle peanuts dont have aflatoxins so if i really want peanut butter I'll have to order some jungle peanut butter online.


    Because of the amount of peanut butter I had earlier I just lightly steamed 2 heads of broccoli and had that with green onion and lemon juice for dinner.

  12. Had a goooood sleep in today, got out of bed at 1230!


    1 cup of coffee with coconut milk


    chest and triceps

    -10 pushups – 3 sets off my feet 1/2 way down

    -8x8(12lbs)x6x6(15lbs) peck flies on the floor legs up

    -8x8(12lbs)x6x6(15lbs) flat bench press legs up

    -super set no weight, resistance band, chest fly higher reps 3 sets of 30

    -4 sets 10 pushups elevated lower legs on ball

    - 4 sets high rep resistance band – front tricep pull downs 15x15x13x10


  13. k New program here it is:

    20min cardio warm up with stretching before each work out 2 days off weights if I feel the need to do something on those 2 rest days I will do some cardio or go do a sport or something fun like hiking.. etc

    Stretch right after each set 30sec each side

    With the sets weights get heavier as the reps get lower

    in 2 -3 weeks I change the exercises up

    Weights are going to be heavy, very heavy but I can do it its all in the mind and I will grunt and make faces and do whatever it takes to lift, push, and pull those heavy weights, so glad I have a gym in my home coz its going to get ugly



    Continue to eat what I know is good but enough of it, not going to stress too much about how much Im eating just as long as Im eating lots of meals through out the day. Going to work on kicking my coffee habit. Up the chlorella, get more maca, get spirulina and load up as much fresh fruits and veggies as I can.

    1 liter of that same green smoothie

    4 spoonfuls of peanut butter with blueberry jam (ya im weird, who needs bread)

    2 small pieces of vegan pizza, 1 large square vegan nanaimo bar (sister was testing some recipes for xmas which I got to try!!)


    A large bowl of salad same as what I had earlier in the week except I added sprouts this time yummah and doubled the amount!

    3 bite sized protein cosmic cookies


    Wow. This was a lot of food for me. Lots of not so healthy food too. Im so glad its still early-ish in the day, I'll be working out my legs really hard tonight! Then right after have the vega sports powder with water (which tastes fantastic btw) and then wait a couple hrs or so and have my chlorella drink before bed.


    Ive been looking at a lot of vegan recipes lately so hopefully I'll make and try some out and plan for more healthy heartier meals.

  16. I would like to give the 811 another shot this spring, I did experiment with it following it 100% a couple years ago for 6 months... results weren't good but I think if I try it again and keeping track of everything I eat I could make it work.. tweaking it slightly too and not following it 100%. I like the idea and it does make sense in some ways.

  17. banana bread smoothie:


    very ripe bananans, i like mine almost completely brown, add a couple frozen bananas for a creamier texture


    coconut milk

    coconut oil

    cinnamon - i like lots

    AM 1 cup of coffee with soy nogg

    breakfast 1 liter green smoothie (bananas, red chard, water, himalayan salt, Cinnamon, coconut oil, honey)

    LUnch the rest of the green smoothie which was almost 1 liter

    crappy snack a soy latte from starbucks

    dinner a large salad: romaine, green lettuce, celery, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, shredded beet, shredded carrot, shredded coconut with homemade dressing: dates, celery, lemon juice, water, salt pepper, garlic, chickpea miso, sauerkraut.


    Thinking about maybe doing back, bi and abs tonight or maybe just have a rest day.


    I'm wondering if I should starting tracking my food better, using a program that'll tell me how many calories ive consumed and my fat/carb/protein %s. Seems so time consuming...

  19. Got weak....


    Once I was alone in the house, after doing my friday nightly routine around the house I boiled 3 little yams, had a 1/4 cup coconut yogurt and a couple spoonfuls of sauerkraut and 2 mandarin oranges... I am on the binging mode.. I feel like I could eat an entire vegan pizza and a thing of coconut ice cream.... I do this once in a while...binge

    Maybe I didnt eat enough during the day? Probably because I didnt have enough water, I'm trying to pour water down my throat as I type to satisfy whatever it is Im wanting... I really didnt "binge" I just ate a bad combo of foods at 930pm, I havent ate this late in awhile, but it gets to me. I beat myself up about it, fack I cant even workout first thing in the am I have to wait till after i get home from work.. its ok, it could have been worst. Luckily i have no bad vegan food in my house

    Confession over.

    Moving on.

  20. Dinner last night was a very good salad:

    Romaine, green lettuce, red bell pepper, orange pepper, celery, cucumber, cannelloni beans, carrot, beet, sauerkraut and homemade dressing: celery, dates, lemon juice, water, salt and pepper, chickpea miso, garlic, coconut oil.

    A few min later had to have another bowl coz it was that good.!
