Hello my friends! Just a quick note to tell you that life is grand and I have been doing some other things lately--like working hard on my artwork. I will slowly make my way through Eat to Live and post another recipe soon. I have been cooking lots of meals from Eat for Health--I barely remember what I used to eat before I learned all of those great recipes!! When I eat out my goals are 100% whole foods, no sugar, no or low salt, no white flour--and I stick to that. If I slip up and eat sugar, it is generally 4-5 boxes of cookies later before I can get myself back on track! So I make damn sure that I eat Dr. Fuhrman desserts every day. The fruit ice creams, oat bars, cupcakes--and even just some luscious fruit! Hooray for tangerine season!! This totally helps me to stay on track.
Last Sunday I did the American Lung Association's Fight for Air Stair Climb to the top of the tallest building in downtown Denver!! I participated in the fund raising event with my boot camp group (Bonza Bodies) There were over 2,000 people in the race--56 floors and 1,098 steps to the top! One breath and one stair at a time, we took steps to raise money to help prevent lung disease and promote lung health. I had a blast!! My goal was to finish in under 30 minutes, and it took me only 14 minutes. I was so proud! I bet there is one in your city--so check it out! It's a great cause!! My father-in-law lost one lung to cancer, and I am ashamed to admit that I smoked cigarettes for about 15 years--(I quit over 6 years ago) so I was very proud to make it to the top. http://www.lungusa.org/donate/events/fight-for-air-climb/ BONZA!!
