Falling for Fall

The weather here is absolutely amazing! I look forward to waking up every day and feeling the chill in the air. It makes me feel like skipping and dancing, seriously.

Still on my vegan rampage, and I love it! Still way into the green smoothies, but also really into kombucha, raw kale in my salads, brussel sprouts (who are you and what have you done with Mo?), rooibos chai, shiitake mushrooms on everything and KOMBUCHA. Oh my god, it is so good. I got hooked on it when I got sick the week before last. Kind of did a little informal kombucha/miso/shiitake fast for a few days and it knocked my sickness right out. I've been trying to eat 10 servings (yes, you read that right) a day of green leafy and red/purple veggies a day. I am on a mission. My weight is kind of stable right now and I am not bingeing, purging or engaging in any compulsive exercise behavior so that's a good thing, I suppose. I would like to lose some more weight, but I am not stressing over it and I figure it will all even out in the end.

I read The Gabriel Method a few weeks ago and I really got a lot out of it. I've been incorporating several of his suggestions and listening to The Gabriel Method night time meditation CD a few nights a week. It makes a difference. Definitely recommend it.

The other thing I am looooooving right now is Kundalini Yoga, esp. the Ana Brett and Ravi Singh DVD's. I can't even express how awesome they are and how good they make me feel. I am all about feeling good right now! I even have a special fluffy bright green yoga rug. Everything in my room is green, green, green. Maybe it's because I'm in the desert? Who knows.

And don't think that because I haven't mentioned it that I'm not lifting. I am. It's just kind of not as serious as the yoga right now, which is fine. The yoga is helping my injuries and well, it makes me hiiiiiigh. The truth comes out!
