I was bulimic for 15 years. I had lost my talking voice almost completely. I definitely could not even attempt to sing. I have not been bulimic for a couple years now, so I am working on my vocal chord recovery. I sing to strengthen my vocal chords. I realize I am not a great singer. That is not the point. This is to document the progress.
A couple years ago, I wouldn’t even talk on the phone, because people always thought I had laryngitis. Now I’m attempting to belt out some songs. Bear with me here. For those of you who have lost your voice, due to bulimia. It does heal, but it’s a long process.
If you are wondering how I recovered from Bulimia, I switched to an all Organic diet. I eat USDA Organic only, no exceptions to that. Natural is not Organic. Be aware of the labeling. Organics are the way food used to be. It is super important for people with eating disorders to eat healthy food, so that you don’t relapse.
The reason someone starts an eating disorder, is because they want to be thin. You cannot put someone in rehab and give them unhealthy food and expect them to be okay with gaining weight. It is no mystery why rehab does not work. I tried counseling and rehab for years. It was not until I switched to Organics. That is what finally made the difference for me.
I also started consuming weed in the form of Pure CBDs and Pure THC. Weed helped me get over my food obsession. A lot of people get under the impression that weed gives you the munches. Weed gives you what you need. So if you are undernourishing yourself, then you will get the munches when you ingest weed. If you are eating healthy, then weed will do the opposite. You will eat less and focus on art instead of food.
The other things I had to do to change my diet is I do food and beverages that are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, GMO Free, Organic, Low Sugar, No Added Sugar, No Artificial sweeteners, No Caffeine and No Alcohol. This list seems really long and daunting to most. I took these things out one by one. You cannot go cold turkey and cut out everything at once. That would be miserable for you. The thing is, this list is the way food used to be. Before they started messing with our food. We are going back to the basics. The way our ancestors used to eat.
I have never felt better and more alive, since I made the switch to all the things I listed above. The two main switches are Organics and consume weed. If you are allowed in your state, I would highly recommend giving it a try. If you do not want to get stoned, then just do CBDs. Those are a lifesaver. They healed my thyroid after it shutdown from 15 years of bulimia.
If anyone is struggling with an eating disorder and needs to chat, feel free to message me. I truly understand what you are going through. I went through everything with my eating disorder. I got kicked out of my Dad’s house numerous times for being bulimic. I was living in my car, because I was spending so much money on food. It is a serious problem, that is becoming an epidemic in our society. It is a result of the poor food standards and the deregulation of the food industry.
JediRich got an AKAI Professional MPK 261 Keyboard on EBay. We got it for a great deal. It has never been opened, but they sold it as used. You gotta love EBay. EBay and Amazon are the future. Less and less people are going in person to purchase items.
This is a fantastic new addition to JediRich’s recording studio. He can now record from the Keyboard with the Scarlett onto his iPad or MacBook. It’s so amazing. It has synthesizers and samples. We just purchased our own DJ with this badass Keyboard!!
A little morning exercise. I keep my morning exercise to about 20-30 mins. I used to go to the gym for 2-3 hours everyday to compensate for the bad food I ate. Now I eat only organic protein. No GMOs, No Dairy, No Gluten, No added Sugar, Low Sugar, No Caffeine and No Alcohol. My meals consist of all Organic beef, collard greens and garlic. That’s it. It’s as simple as that. I do not consume any beverages other than water.
It seems like an extreme way to eat, but it’s the way our ancestors ate. I’m part Native American. I’m sure my warrior ancestors were meat eaters. They were only drinking water and eating the animals that were available. Maybe a little nuts and berries, but primarily meat.
What has happened in our society, is they have convinced people that, they need to eat all these food groups. The food pyramid is BS. It was created to create more consumerism. By people eating more, they had to compensate by opening gyms. When people were eating “real food”, which we now call Organics, there was no need for intense working out to stay thin.
If you eat all Organics, Gluten Free, GMO Free, Dairy Free, and Low Sugar then you will be thin and feel great. The non organic food, what they call conventional food is what is making people overweight. Once they started messing with the food, people had to resort to working out several hours a day to stay thin. It did not used to be that way.
I love to dance and do my nunchucks for workouts. We used to have a gym membership. We canceled it after our car was stolen and we lived in the cave for 3 months. We realized that all the simple things technology fixes, just makes us lazier and not as in shape.
When you do not have a car, you end up walking and taking the bus everywhere. These both are fantastic workouts, especially if you are carrying a bunch of groceries. We think it’s kind of funny now to imagine driving to the gym to workout. You could just walk or run outside and save yourself time and money.
Another way to burn calories, is cleaning your house regularly. People often hire people to clean. No need for that. Get off your bum and do it yourself. Do not say you don’t have time. Everyone has time to keep their place tidy. Dirty houses are just out of laziness. Everyone can help with chores, from the wife, husband and kids. The whole responsibility does not have to fall on the mom. That’s a big reason why kids are getting larger, is parents are hiring maids instead of making the kids do chores. My mom was a janitor and house cleaner. She was a single mom with 3 jobs and still our place was spotless. I started cleaning houses with her when I was 7 and we cleaned my whole school since I was 5 years old. No kid is too young to start learning to clean. Now I love cleaning, because my mom started me on the habit at such a young age. Instead of watching so much TV, have cleaning time.
Also by not using devises like a dishwasher. We have one that I have never opened. I wash all dishes by hand. It’s a good workout and feels good being connected with the water. This morning I had to defrost our freezer with a blow dryer. It’s an old freezer that does not have the technology to defrost itself like the new ones. That’s when it came to me that...technology has caused laziness. They wanted all woman to go to work, so they made household chores easier.
Another fantastic way to lose weight, the actual best way is sex!! Sex causes an endorphin rush and burns tons of calories. JediRich and I have sex at least 2-3 times a day. It is super important for overall well being and health. Sexual repression causes depression. If you are suffering from depression, check your sex life. That is what causes depression, weight gain, unhappiness, etc, is not having enough sex. Sex is crucial for humans to live a happy life. No one is as happy when they are refraining from sex as they can be when they are being free and poly. Monogamy is not for humans. We are not made to be monogamous. That’s not in our nature.
Remember religion is what made rules against sex. Prior to that people had free love. Religion wants you to refrain from sex, because it is easier to control people when you are taking away the one thing we all desire. To feel good and to be fucking. It is as simple as that folks. All the rest is fillers in life. If you aren’t fucking, then I guarantee you are not truly happy. Your feelings say you are horny. The teachings and society, tell us to deny our true feelings. Fucking is not wrong. Do not listen to what the religious folks say. They are full of shit!! Literally and figuratively. When you are not opening up your body and refraining from sex, you are generally a tight ass. You also probably have trouble shitting. This is no joke. Sex is connected to all general health, especially bowl health!!
The first update of 2019 was super chilly. It was quiet on the work site at 3pm. Update will be posted on Daily News by 11pm tonight.
Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary my JediRich! I have never been more happier that I married you on this day 5 years ago!! You are my everything!! We sure have changed for the better since January 1st, 2014.
We got married at Little Church of the West, which is the oldest building on the strip. It was created in 1942. The chapel was originally built as part of the Hotel Frontier complex on the Las Vegas Strip. The chapel was moved from the north side of the hotel to the south side in 1954. In 1979, to make way for the Fashion Show Mall the chapel was moved onto the grounds of the Hacienda hotel-casino. In 1996, when the Hacienda was closed and demolished, the chapel was moved again to its current location on the south end of the strip by Mandalay Bay. Which is even more sentimental for us.
We spent only $320 on the whole wedding. I bought my dress for $20 from Macy’s and the wedding was $200 and $100 for the Chapel photographer. Las Vegas is a fantastic place for an affordable and fun place to get married. I did not want all the drama of a huge expensive wedding that bores all our friends. We chose to only have one person in attendance. It was such a special day. I would get married the same way over and over to JediRich. We were also able to have our wedding day on January 1st, so I would never forget the date. I am horrible with dates. If we had a big wedding, I’m sure New Year’s Day would have been tough for most people to attend.
Peopel make wedding ceremonies such an elaborate and expensive thing. It is not the most important day of your life. It is only the beginning of a happy life if you marry your soulmate. We chose to keep it simple and not get in debt for one day. We have the rest of our lives to spend money on each other. Las Vegas is the way to go. $320, 15 minutes and you get to be with your soulmate for eternity...Priceless!!
