Now that we have arrived in Greensboro, NC my blogging will continue. It has been a rough trip with lots of financial woe but once we get our feet back on the ground life will be different. I start my new job on the 15th so I have a few days to pretty much organize the house and do nothing. Dylan and I have decided to go on a diet, which is actually a lifestyle change, that was recommended by our good friends back in SF, Alexa and Darrin. It is the pH diet and from what I saw of those two before we left it gives good results. It is a fairly strict diet because you have to eat 80% alkaline food and 20% acidic food. Almost everything we eat on an everyday basis is acidic. The main foods that are alkaline are: most vegetables (no mushrooms), no fruit (except grapefruit, lemons, and limes), no sugar, no wheat ( we are allowed to eat spelt, buckwheat, millet, and quinoa), no processed, no meat ( we can eat fish occasionally), and no dairy. If you think about it it is pretty much a vegan diet but with more restrictions. At first, I thought this was going to be hard to stick to but after making new recipes for a solid week I found that every dish we made was delicious. I know it's going to be hard for the first few weeks but I can't wait to start feeling more energized and losing that weight!! I went to the gym 5 times a week for about 8 months and didn't see a single pound shed so I realized I needed to alter my diet in order to lose all those pounds I gained. I feel very confident about this diet/lifestyle and I can't wait till all the positive aspects start kicking in.
Once I start making money and our apartment is pretty much in order I would like to start buying designer toys again. They are just so fun to collect and there are a lot of new ones out there that I want. Here is a sneak peek of the super cute Pecanpals, which are 100 wood, by Noferin
