Wow - that was crazy. I spent most of the last month focused on getting married, then I went and got married and took a week off work. I'm back at my desk today and trying to get plugged back in, but feels like I've been gone forever!

Oh yeah, did I mention I'm also in the middle of NaNoWriMo? I have to admit, it's suffered over the last week or so. Let's just say I'm a few days behind. But I digress.

Anyway, during our trip to Las Vegas for the wedding, I experienced another 'hotel mirror moment', which is what propelled me to start this blog in the first place. Has it really been almost two years? I don't know how I thought that I could gain all the weight back and not look it, but I guess that's the beauty of having no full length mirrors at home. Ignorance was, indeed bliss.

I know my recent problem is that even though we're eating primarily vegetarian, we're not eating many vegetables. I've fallen into a beans and grains and cheese and whole grain bread and peanut butter rut. I kind of burned out on raw veggies in 2008 but I need to find a way to rekindle the love.

I'm always looking for a cool new solution, and luckily, Daniel at Casual Kitchen has my back. He's just finishing a seven day raw foods trial and it's caught my eye. I wouldn't try to go 100% raw, but a raw smoothie in the morning might be a good way to get back my veggie love. Who knows? I might even get my guys to give it a go once in awhile.

Has anyone tried it? I'd love to hear from you.
