Keep a Journal, then:
The FUN part: movement of your body in anyway you feel inspired dance, kick a ball, hike, yoga, throw a ball around with your kids or the neighbor kids, JUST MOVE and have fun doing it.
The Fresh Living Foods Part: consciously be aware of your food choices take in live fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, water, sunshine, clean air, etc

Start Your meal and juices flowing with a little:

Lemon-Dill Cucumbers (pickles): In the morning slice up a cucumber and put it into a glass jar, squeeze a lemon on top add a crush garlic, 1/2 TB dill and salt if you like (I use a little Dulse). Fill up the rest of the jar with water.

1 cup soaked Almonds (24 hours min, I love to peel them by pushing them in between my fingers and pinching them the skin with come off, you do not need to do this step)
1/2 cup soaked (5 hours) and dried Sunflower Seeds (just dry them on a plate for an afternoon, again you don't have to do this it works best).
1 lemon juiced
1 TB sweetener like agave, dates, etc
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup parsley, chopped finely
1/2 bell pepper (yellow or red), chopped finely
3 stalks celery, chopped in tiny pieces
4 green onions, chopped finely
1/2 apple, chopped finely
1/2 lemon-dill cucumbers, chopped finely
1/8 tea white or black pepper
1/4-1/2 tea dulse
1/2 tea dill dried or 1/8 cup finely chopped fresh dill

In a food processor add 1/2 the nuts and seeds and blend well with dulse, lemon juice, garlic, sweetener and seasonings. Add the rest of the nuts and seeds to the mix and pulse chop leave a bit of chunks put in a bowl and mix in the veggies. Taste and adjust to your taste remembering Sweet, Sour, Spicy, Salty, Bitter. Put in a lettuce leaf add a tomato slice, lemon-dill cucumber, sprouts, etc and ENJOY! I love this stuff!!
