Home Sweet Home – Dr. Ritamarie’s Appreciations for Today – Day 22

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

home sweet home

I’m back home and it feels great.

As much as I love traveling, it always feels great to return to the familiar and comfortable feeling of home.

I love having my kitchen equipment (Vitamix and food processor especially)  and I love feeling comfortable in my own space, not having to tiptoe around and be sure not to inconvenience anyone with my kitchen activities.  I’ve been traveling with my food choices for a long time.  Still, depending on who I am visiting, there’s always explaining about what I do, why I don’t eat the “regular”  food and all that.  While I love educating others, it feels good to come home and just “be”.

Dr. Ritamarie’s Appreciation Journal  for Today – Day 22

  1. I am grateful for my beautiful and spacious backyard and all the greenery and wild life back there, including birds, squirrels, lizards, frogs and deer.  Its a joy to look out there as I lounge on the couch indoors writing.
  2. I appreciate the mild winter weather here in Austin.  Even though a cold front has just hit, and we’re reaching for the sweatshirts and warm blankets, it’s still in the 50’s during the day and 30’s at night, which we considered warm when we were in Chicago.  Plus in a day or two we’ll be back in the upper 60’s.  Not bad for soon to be winter.
  3. I appreciate the huge bowl of soup I just finished, including a combination of raw and lightly cooked vegetables, sea vegetables, warming herbs and seeds for my omega 3 fats.  It was filling, warming and oh so delicious.  I will post the recipe to the blog.

Getting in touch with what you appreciate throughout the day is a super way to  increase your energy, health and joy. Join me on this appreciation journey and watch magical things unfold.

    1.I am grateful for friends coming over tomorrow, something fun to look forward to.
    2.I am grateful that I’ve crested the learning curve on preparing raw food. Now I can prepare it, and teach others to prepare it, without the feeling of being overwhelmed or stressed at all.
    3.I am very grateful to Dr. Ritamarie for having this appreciation log so I have the increased motivation to participate in this exercise. I am reading a book on the importance of DHEA and how stress reduction is so incredibility important. I’m glad I’m doing something to further assist my body in healing.

    1.- I appreciate the fact that I write in a journal. I write thing down, they stay there, and it helps tremendously.
    2.- I am extremely appreciative that since B4BeGone started, and I decided to give myself time to take care of myself I have been able to start, and continue, several things I have wanted to do for year: keeping a journal, exercise almost every day(because I want to) go 90% raw, and start a gratitude journa …. slow down my life.
    3.- I appreciate the many opportunities life grants us, for whatever we want to do. They are there, we just have to grab them … and I just did! Thank you Dr. Ritamarie, for your help in this.
