This morning I had a quart of green smoothie, a couple of lemon rings and later I had the remaining bit of this pepper jack rice cheese I had bought, which was digsuting. It is very strange how even the cheese substitutes are grossing me out.

My back is still screwed up from the other morning when I woke up so stiff. I hope it improves by tomorrow. I've been using an old tube sock, filled with rice and some drops of bergamot oil, warmed in the microwave as a heating pad. I really think that helps.

Darryl took a bunch of photos of me for my site and I really didn't like the way they came out. I downloaded them and sent him the picture of our dog Ruby, lol, told him that was the best of them all!

We officialy started school today. I got some awesome (FREE!) home school forms from this site. I am determined to be more organized this year - I usually start keeping my records and then by the end of the year I slack off. I'm not going to do this anymore. How dorky is it that organization excites me.

I also had a raw brownie with a strawberry creme frosting. That was nice. We ran out of the awesome organic peaches I had picked up at Vitamin Cottage. I got some good looking conventional ones at Walmart and I'm hoping they'll taste as good as they look.

Ran into Donna on the way over to the store to buy back her jar of coconut oil, and give her the Tamari Almonds I made for her. I'll be able to make my Magnificant Macaroons now. This is one of the raw treats that the kids really like to eat, so I always need to make sure I make enough for them!

We shall overcome...

Wow it's been a while since my last post. I am happy to say though, that I am officially off another addiction, dairy. After my cleanse I started eating cheese again, like unpasteurized cheese, and even some of the non-fat cheeses, thinking they are better for me. The whole time realizing this was just a nasty addiction for me.

I wasn't eating 'some' cheese, like shredded on a salad, it was more like buying a block of cheese and eating slices of it when I wanted something to eat instead of grabbing a piece of fruit. It was just a really bad habit.

I am not sure what actually did it - I have been praying fervently for my addictions to be taken away so I know the Lord definatly had a hand in it. I was viewing some videos from vegsource that helped. This one is with T. Colin Campbell about his book The China study
About sugar, chocolate, dairy and meat addiction.

These were pretty long videos, about an hour each. I had them playing in the background while I was working on the computer.

I do have a couple of other addictions to overcome but I am indeed taking them one addiction at a time because getting doing them all at once would not be a very good idea for me!
