Meet Chef Combo

I got this cool puppet at a thrift store a while back. Son LOVES him. He comes to the dinner table with us on occasion when Princess refuses to eat! He came with a box of cards that talk about nutrition. We use them to learn the names of various foods because they have  pictures on them.

Good Thing I Just Cleaned

Hmmm. I just put all of the dress up clothes away... I can't believe Gizmo would get everything out again.....

My New Running Partner

We go at the same speed, but one of us has more endurance. A 2 year old out runs me. True story.

Hiking with a Trail Blazer

 We decided to take a leisurely walk on a trail today for some fresh air!!! HA!!! Princess ran the ENTIRE time. The ENTIRE time....

She was running up and down hills (who knew there were hills in Florida?) 

She stopped for a second to point out a bunny (that wasn't actually there). 

I put Sister in charge of chasing she is checking to see that her new Chuck Taylor's didn't get dirty:

My poor son barely got to walk because I had to hold him and run the whole time...with a jacked up arm I might add. Check out the fact that he is FINALLY wearing shoes!!!!

Here they are...all racing:

After a good fall...Princess stopped to hug her brother...and then ran again all the way to the car:

I felt bad for Son because he didn't get to stretch his legs much, so I took him to a car show we spotted on the way home. Here he is with my dream car:

And his Daddy's dream car:

Going Bananas

So I am loving being on the 80/10/10 diet. I feel sooooooo good. I can't even explain the amount of energy I have. The best part of this lifestyle is the massive quantity of food you get to consume.

Every day I start with 1 liter of warm water, then a smoothie made with.10 bananas (yes 10), 6 dates, 2 cups of coconut water and also regular water.

For lunch I have about 4 apples and a HUGE salad. Picture the biggest mixing bowl you own and fill it with lettuce and veggies.

I have another 5 bananas for a snack.

For dinner I have been having a huge salad again, but some days I follow the rawtill4 program and have rice or cooked potatoes....and I'm talking a lot of potatoes.

Some days I have a bunch of oranges for lunch..or mangos...or peaches.

This all adds up to 3000 energy packed calories per day. I have NEVER consumed this many calories per day and I am either maintaining or losing weight. It is GLORIOUS!!!!!!!!

Now, please don't think that all I am eating is bananas and lettuce. I use many types of lettuces and many types of veggies in my salad. I also have different fruits on different days depending on what I can get organic and/or cheap.

As for bananas...I never knew you MUST eat them very speckled brown. This is way better for digestion.

Here is two and a half to three days worth of bananas and greens. I got these all these bananas for less than 4.00:

Hiking on Mother's Day

I had so much fun today hiking...messed up arm and all. I have been wanting to do this for a while and I'm so happy my family took me. We actually went hiking twice...both before and after lunch! We went about 5 miles and with the babies that is a lot!
Best day EVER....

I won't be posting much for a bit. My arm is in a sling and now I'm doing everything one handed.

I took a spill on my bicycle....its all that energy from my raw diet!!!!!!!!

Want to change your life? Look up the 80/10/10 eating plan. YOU WILL HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY THAT YOU WONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. The best part is that you get to eat so much food...its ridiculous. I mean TONS!

Working Hard This Morning

My babies are hard at work and its only 7 am. Son is pushing some pom poems into a coffee can with holes in the lid and Princess is working with bingo markers to create a masterpiece....

Its 11 am and 90 degrees outside!!!!! This morning we went to St. Augustine Beach Splash Park at the pier. 

Free fun....

At one point Princess took off from the splash area, dipped under the fence and was RUNNING down the pier. I had a baby in my hand, a dress on, and she runs twice as fast....

 It must have been a sight!

Princess and the Puppy

Princess loves going walking because no one in our neighborhood can keep their dog in their yard (including us). This is her best buddy....

Go Away Rain....Please

We have been stuck inside for days...We have played with every you we own. I am out of ideas and if it rains tomorrow I might cry.

Out of desperation I attached a bunch of ribbons and string (which you can't see in the picture) to the walls, doors, and baby gates. A maze maybe???? I don't know what it was, but Princess has been asking to hunt easter eggs soooo....

Whatever it was, it entertained them for just about 15 minutes, but it totally annoyed Gizmo (which made it all worth it).

Today the babies made some watermelon juice. They have so much fun putting the fruit in the juicer!
