Remember my post about my cold feet yesterday? I should have known, haha. I was cold all day yesterday and today, and I didn’t knew why.
Untill 3 o’clock. I felt horrible, I had stomachpain and threw up.
I’m feeling a bit sick now.
I know that a lot of people have the flu, which is strange ’cause it’s already spring and almost april! Shouldn’t that be over now?
I also always thought that all of the RT4/vegan people had an amazing immune system, but clearly not, haha.
Thank God I have the best mum, ’cause she made me this amazing soup. This is currently my state of mind:
I call it; ‘Bored and feeling like crap’. Hooray.
A delicious vegan soup, with a lot of veggies! She really put everything in it. If this isn’t gonna make me better, what will?
At least I’m getting all my vitamins in. 🙂
A completely different subject; but do you guys have an Instagram account?
I do, and I’m looking for some refreshing, new accounts. So if you want me to follow you, post your name below.
Mine is the same as my blog: @rawjazzie.
I hope that you like to follow me. I post about my food, yoga,running.. And a lot more. I’m always open to suggestions for great accounts, so let me know.
Take care lovelies.
Hey lovely people!
To begin with; if someone knows a solution please share it with me!
Uch, it’s march and here in Holland it’s still cold. And I don’t like that. Particularly now that I’m vegan.
Spring has just began, ans I hoped that with the spring the sun wouls come.
But nope, the sun decided to stay on the other side of the world.
Too bad for me, and my feet.
I have the coldest feet you could ever think of.
Are there more people with cold bodyparts?
Since I began my vegan life, I started to habe cold hands and feet. Before that they were cold every now and then. Nothing strange.
I sleep with socks every night!
And even then, they won’t warm up.
I hate cold feet.
I hope that someone recognise this, and might have the solution for warm feet. Thank you!
I want to mention my veganism one more time.
Because it’s so important, because otherwise it’ll be so cruel.
I know a lot of people, who say that they love animals.
That they care, and can’t stand animalcruelty.
But why aren’t they vegan then?!
Don’t they realise the horror they put on their plate?
I really think that they don’t know, or don’t want to know, what they eat.
I find it hard to realise what they eat, that they just don’t wamt to know what they eat.
They rather stay unknowing, then giving up their meat.
I’m happy that I don’t eat these beautiful pigglets anymore, and I don’t even see them as food anymore.
They are just creatures, like you and me.
Throughout the last months I’ve met a lot of ather vegans, who think the same way.
Im gratefull for that, although I wish there were more people who were vegan.
For the planet, for the animals.
Time for another blog! Not a happy one this time, ’cause it’s about my last hospitalization. I went there for my IBD. It wasn’t long; I’m back already. But it was hard.
Not only the pain, but also the food. Food is an important factor in my health. If I eat proper and clean I have less pain and I recover in less time.
People with IBD often eat glutenfree and fatfree. So you would say they keep notice of that in the hospital.
Well, think again. I asked them for a vegan meal and that was were they made their first mistake.
Vegan? So you don’t eat meat then? It says here that you can have anything, so would you like the spaghetti with tuna or the patatoes with salmon?
I didn’t even know what to say.
Eventually I got my voice back and I said that I didn’t eat meat, fish or dairy because of my illness. (Thats not the only reason but I doubt that she’ll got it so I tought this was okay)
That she understood. I asked for some veggies, fruit and plain rice.
Within 20 minutes she was back with a small plate of rice and veggies and – Hallelujah- 6 banana’s.
Being a vegan in a hospital. It sure ain’t easy, but I managed.
I hope that next time I find someone who understand me, and the importance of clean food to a healing body.
Today I want to blog about sport. A lot of people seem to think that they are living healthy, when they eat clean food and when they stop eating sugar. But changing your diet doesn’t make you healthy, of course it’s a good begin, and very important. But it’s not all. Your diet can give you more energy, less pain, a better skin and a good feeling.
So when you can have all of that with just a switch in diet, why would you exercise?
Because exercise gives you a positive feeling; it makes you fit, gives you a good condition. It can be a stress-releaser, or can give you space to think.
I myself sport 4/5 times a week. It may looks like a lot but it really isn’t. I go to yoga once a week; yoga makes me feel good about myself, it makes me relaxed. It also helpes me to reflect things better. I run 3/4 times by myself; I like running. I like the feeling you get in your legs; like you can’t stop and your legs are taking over. I also like to run in the cold, and to warm up during my run.
I’m also part of a running club, we run on sundaymorning. We have a trainer Susan, she stimulates us to run faster, better and she gives us cardio exercises to help us improve distance.
It helps me to relax and clear my mind.
I hope that everyone can see the importance of sport; it’s not only good for your health, it’s also mentally a good thing.
I want to talk about work and the importance of it. I know that working is the way to get money, to live a good life without some worries.
But is that all? Shouldn’t work be more then that? I believe that you should get everything out of your life, to live life to the fullest. And work is an important factor in this process.
When you have a boring, lame job, with unpleasant colleagues; how on earth would you be able to continue that FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? Right. You won’t.
Work should be a fun place to go; a place where you meet nice, new and inspiring people. People who want to help you be the real ‘you’. People who aren’t judgemental, but honest.
That’s why I decided to quit one of my jobs. My (former) boss liked it to swear at people. He called us terrible names, and expected us to just listen to it. I couldn’t do that anymore. I didn’t want to work: afraid of what he might say. Isn’t that horrifying? So I decided to work for ‘me’, for what I bij wanted, for my luck and not only for the money.
I felt brave today.
Today is gonna be a long but nice day. It’s still warm outside, I’m wearing my new trousers and I’m going to the movies tonight (with my best friend). Sounds like a good day. But like I said, it’s gonna be a long day. I still find it kind of hard toeat enough on days like this. I tend to eat less, and as a result I get cravings. I try to eat as many as I should (around 2000 kcal of fruit, 500 of dinner) but sometimes I fail to get it all in. I’m not planning on having cravings today, so I made myself food for school. I made broccoli, a tomato salad and I have fruit. I also have rice crackers in my locker. I hope that it’s enough for me. I find it ard to eat on the go, or to plan my meals. Bit time has learned that I really need to do it. I need to take time for myself, and think about why I do it. RT4 is a lifestyle that makes my feel better, feel loved and to hopefully learn to love myself. I think today will be fine, I took care of lunch/snack and I have a lot of nice things ahead. I have drama classes today, and I’m really looking forward to it. Let’s make something of today!
I wanted to write something about one of my favorite things in the world: BEANS! And peas too, haha. I Just LOVE beans. I doens’t matter which one. You can make endless variations with beans. And they are healthy. I made this bean salad (see top image) to bring with me to school, and eveyone got jealous. They were all like: “Woaah you’re eating so healthy, it looks so good! I wish I could do that!”
People often say things like that. I find it hard to understand, if you want to be healthy and fit, it’s up to you to actually do that. No-one can do that for you, you need to make the decision to stop eating crap and start eating healthy. So when people say that, I often start laughing, and tell them that this is a normal snack for me. That I like to take good care of myself, and that it isn’t hard.
But for some people it is. They make excuses not to eat good.
But please, stop the excuses and start the realization.
Start to take of yourself. Start to eat fruit. Stop the fat.
YOU can do this, if you love yourself, I wouldn’t be a problem.
Just give your body love, and it will love you back.
I wanted to show you some pictures of me before I start this RT4 journey.
Don’t mind my face, I was (or actually am) a little bit tired.
As you can see, I’m not really fat. But I do have some extra fat, fat that doesn’t belong on my body.
I want to get rid of this fat, and most of all become very very healthy. From the inside and the outside. I wan other people notice hwo healthy I am. And I want to feel better. I want to get rid of ed thoughts (which I actually have a lot) and just look good.
RT4 is gonna help me, I really now that this lifestyle can help me forever.
Like I told you yesterday, I’m starting over! Just because I had some difficulties and I couldn’take the time to really read me into this lifestyle. That’s why I decided to start over, fresh, and full of energy.
I actuall started yesterday but I didn’t had time to post and my pictures wouldn’t open. Very frustrating. But it all doesn’t matter anymore, I just log now.
Yesterday was hard, went to the cinema.It was really nice but hard to resist the popcorn. I wonder, if you make them yourself, if they are RT4-proof.
I had a school day today and I had artclass. Theater. I really like it. My teacher is great, and I get cool feedback from the other students. Yesterday I went for a bikeride, and today I walked for 1,5 hour. SO I did my excercise.
