In November of 2020 half of my apartment burnt down. I lost a lot of my valuables. In April of 2021 when my crappy landlord still had not done any repairs on my apartment I moved to Florida. In Nov. 2021 I shaved my head to start growing my hair over. My hair was way over-processed! I then decided to not cut or bleach my hair until my birthday 2025 so I can finally have my dream "mermaid" hair. In Dec. 2021 I signed up for business school and am going strong with a B average. Starting next month I am joining Smile Direct Club to fix the gap in my top teeth smile. In May of 2022 I am starting a new eating lifestyle that I have been creating for several months now. I am a certified Natural Health Consultant and have researched the hell out of this new life plan. I have gotten rid of all of the toxic people in my life. Now, it is time to get rid of all of the toxins in my body. No new years resolutions for me. Just plans of greatness! In June or July my first non-fiction book will be hitting shelves. Once you get rid of the toxic people in your life, things really do look up. Sure, you have to work for it, but the work is joyous and freeing. There are no toxic people to bring me down and to sabotage me. For the first time in 8 years, llife is genuinly good. 


Starting in May 2022

I am still preparing to do this thing right which is why I need just a little more time to start. Once I start I will be posting a life plan diary with pictures at the bottom of this page.

These next foods are to be had no more than once a day and according to the proper serving sizes listed below. You may add anything to them from the column on the left, but do NOT add anything else such as: Butter, oil, lard, sugar, syrup...
Part of getting healthy means no fillers or fake sweeteners which is why I have no diet beverages or reduced fat items on my food lists.

Pick no more than 3 items from the list below per day.

Turkey 3 oz. per day
Oats 1/2 cup before cooking per day
100% juice One 8 oz. cup per day

Daily Supplements to take:
Why these are good for me:

Vitamin C-

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a nutrient your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is also vital to your body's healing process.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation from the sun, X-rays or other sources. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron.

Because your body doesn't produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach. Vitamin C is also available as an oral supplement, typically in the form of capsules and chewable tablets.

Vitamin E-

Vitamin E is a nutrient that's important to vision, reproduction, and the health of your blood, brain and skin.

Vitamin E also has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are substances that might protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. If you take vitamin E for its antioxidant properties, keep in mind that the supplement might not offer the same benefits as naturally occurring antioxidants in food.

Foods rich in vitamin E include canola oil, olive oil, margarine, almonds and peanuts. You can also get vitamin E from meats, dairy, leafy greens and fortified cereals. Vitamin E is also available as an oral supplement in capsules or drops.

Vitamin E deficiency can cause nerve pain (neuropathy).

The recommended daily amount of vitamin E for adults is 15 milligrams a day.

Biotin-

Biotin (vitamin B7) is a vitamin found in foods like eggs, milk, and bananas. Biotin deficiency can cause thinning of the hair and a rash on the face. Biotin is an important part of enzymes in the body that break down substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others.

Collagen-

Collagen is a protein responsible for healthy joints and skin elasticity, or stretchiness. It’s in your bones, muscles, and blood, comprising three quarters of your skin and a third of the protein in your body.

As you age, your existing collagen breaks down, and it gets harder for your body to produce more. As a result, many people turn to collagen supplements. These supplements are usually powders, though there are also capsules and liquid supplements available.

Collagen is also produced naturally in the body by combining amino acids, the building blocks of proteins found in food.

To the left is a picrure taken of me on April 28, 2022. I realize a full body pic would be better, but I love this pic...Anyway, my new life plan is underway now and I am doing quite well. So far I feel more energetic. I have only been doing this plan for about 7 days now so I am sure more good results are on the way, and I am excited! 
Being diagnosed with breast cancer is no joke and I was diagnosed a few days ago and it has just inspired me even more to get my body as healthy as I can get it. The ball is in my court and I am gonna hit it and hit it hard!

Ok, to the left in the plaid dress, that pic was taken of me on May 2, 2022. It's almost a completely full body picture so we all know what I am starting with. Today I got a recumbant indoor exercise bike and rode it for 10 minutes. The goal is to ride it 15-20 minutes 2 times a day, but I have to work up to that. I did surprise myself though as I found it to be a lot of fun and I really didn't think that I would like it.
I have been following my nutrition guidelines and have been feeling more energetic and I think that this new life plan is truly going to give me a new life. I know it sounds corny but, I am actually excited about all of this!

Day 3 of bike riding. Luckily the seat is the same height as my wheelchair so it is easy for me to slide on and off of it.


I made the cover of Chaos Chix magazine for May 2022!! Click the cover to the left to be redirected to the purchase information. Enjoy!

My energy is crazy and I am exercising like a fiend because of it! I haven't felt this good since I was a teenager, it's incredible! Buying fresh fruit salads is my new hobby as buying cheesecakes was my old hobby lol. One day I may actually be fully healthy, I never thought that would be possible, but now I feel like it is so possible that I am giddy!
To the left is a picture of my regular lunch, sometimes I add cottage cheese to it, and it is so good! Fruit never filled me before but now, I just eat a large portion and I am full for hours. I get the vitamins I need and I get my sweet cravings flled at the same time. I am truly happy and feeling great!!!
Things are really staring to look up for me. About 2 years ago I started getting rid of all of the toxic people in my life. Last week I got rid of the last toxic person in my life, my fiance at the time. He actually tried to make me feel bad for him since I got breast cancer, are you kidding me??? See ya! So now I am toxic person free, bad food habit free, and full of energy and happiness. Yup, I have cancer but I feel great!

I skipped riding the bike yesterday but I rode it today. I hope to get up tp riding it 2 times a day every day. Yesterday was a rare exception due to being awake the whle night before working and just being plain out of energy. 8 minutes and 25 seconds worth of riding today.
For breakfast I had a yoplait single serving of strawberry yogurt and a cup of coffee with some hazlenut creamer in it. The creamer goes against my diet, but it is my only cheat. For lunch today I am once again having fresh fruit salat, which is always wonderful, and I have added a scoop of cottage cheese on top of it. I have learned that the Public's brand cottage cheese is not so good, but the Walmart kind is fabulous!
