After having such a mad few days especially, it's nice to know arriving here at the Marriot I'm Santa Fe and having two nights here we have a little more time on our hands and no car travel.
We both can't wait to have a chill and not be on a schedule to try and see everything as it's just madness - so much to see! It's crazy. We have both said we could of stayed for 3 months and still probably not covered everything. It is only going to get crazier as the days go on too.
So keep up to date via Snapchat especially - @sophwardy :) .
We sure have met some interesting people along the historic route, crazy people - it's so funny. Makes your day.
Anyway - this blog is just short and sweet, I hope you are all enjoying my little snapshot video's.
Its crazy, I begin editing them when we get back from dinner - until midnight then end up, uploading and processing at 3am our time (luckily I don't sleep ) but to link in well time wise with you guys. We have had a time change today though and have gone back an hour so we are now 7 hours behind..
So we will see how that works. We are also always losing phone and internet signal out here now - so please just give us a few hours if we don't post or you don't hear anything from us.
Love and Peace to all, keep spreading the good vibes and hope you are all cooking up some good meals. I went past a Barnes and Noble where my book will be sold the other day - very exciting stuff.
I am sure missing my home cooking.
Keep watching the video's and as always please reach out to us we love to hear from you!
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
