Due to yo-yo eating and inconsistent workouts, I’ve had to rededicate myself to consistent exercise & consistent healthy eating. One of my goals is to be in skinny jeans by Christmas. Yes, I said skinny jeans. Not that I’m big on them, it just gives me a nice goal to envision.
Anyhoo, I’m working (along w/a lil help from here and there) on a detox plan that will include colonics. Don’t know what a colonic is?.. Well, think of it as a major enema or just read {here}.  It’s been a few years since I’ve had one but I’m definitely not a stranger to them. I’ve already scheduled a colonic for next week so expect a post on it.I’m also paying really close attention to the ingredient listing on ALL products. Vegan included. *Carolyn Akens had warned me about that.* It’s amazing (and sad & unfortunate) how much crappy shit is in the majority of things sold. Since I’m still working out the details of my detox plan & eating habits, I’ll have to post on that later. Or it may turn out to be something that I sort of “wing” as I get retuned to listening to my body. Either way, I’ll be chronicling all of this, in some way, on the blog.

As far as my workouts are concerned, I’ve gone back to the gym and am working on my running (better yet jogging). I’m doing pretty good so far. And will continue to work on increasing my distance. I have an awesome goal. I’ll be returning to jog the Peachtree 2011 . This is my main motivation for working on my jogging endurance and time. It’s not until July 4th, so my plans are to be more than ready for it by then. What I’m even more excited about is the half-marathon that I’ll be participating in Thanksgiving Day morning. *I’m so stocked about it!* Wish me success!
I’ll definitely post on the experience.

Is there anything that you’ve had to rededicate yourself to lately?....


  1. Awesome Post! I am definitely in rededication mode for sure. Making promises to myself to listen to my body and to take work on my Raw Food Business. Love your blog. Much love and Blessings sis!

  2. @TwinkieR* - Ooh, "Raw Food Business"!! I'm excited! You know I'll be talking to you a little more about it. Thanks for coming thru!

  3. This is the coolest , you and another fabulous blogger that I follow are such true inspirations( I mean that) I think you may like her site you guys seem to be on the same page you may be familiar with her site already. I dont know just thought I'd it is

    you have once again inspired me. I want to run(lol) I am really , really thinking about doing so. We have a nice bike path her in my neighboorhood. Where people run and ride there bikes all year. I think I may get out there,maybe my oldest daughter may go w/ me for company.

    Best of luck to you on your marathon. Please keep us posted. Take care.


  4. @Zainab1 - Thanks! I'm so glad I can inspire someone. That bike path really sounds nice. Wish I had one close. The pavement can be a bit rough on the body, so I do try to get on the grass as much as possible. I have to admit to you that the most difficult part is getting started. Once you (and perhaps your daughter) get out there, you've won the hardest part of the battle. Getting out in the fresh air and sunshine is always lovely.

    And thanks for the heads-up on the The Big Girl Chronicles! I'll definitely check it out.

    I sure do appreciate your presence here.

    Peace and blessings,

  5. Hey CO!

    I'm glad to know that you are doing your rededication. I wish you the best! You'll be in your skinty :) jeans in no time!

    Take care,


  6. @Evelyn - Haha!! Thanks Hon! I do hope so.

  7. Wish you success gorgeous ♥ You have fantastic Sexy goals ☺ MWAH ♥

  8. @HippieMom - Heeeey Ma!! Thanks!
    Hope all is well w/you.

  9. I can relate to rededicating for my health. I fasted about two months ago with such great results instantly! I read in my raw food book about a three day fast- liquids and broths only. Watermelon was okay... it was easy and great to do! i need to get back on that program again too...

  10. @Naima's Closet - A 3-day liquid/broth fast sounds awesome. I'm considering a liquid fast of some sort to start me off.
    What raw food book did you get this from?...

  11. i think its good to have a detox diet once every so often. it just lets your body recover from all the badness we keep feeding it


Speak on it
