Raw

  I am proud to say I have made it through my first 4 weeks of my raw food intensive.  I have not been perfect however I have been persistent, a few slips here and there with only 2 really bad days, but the key is persistence, I didn't not give up after my allowed falls.   What changes have I noticed?    Weight loss of 8lbs,  only a few nights of heartburn (brought on by a few bad choices), changes in energy, up and down, need less sleep and generally happier, minus the few detox days.   So overall I am feeling better physically and emotionally.  I also am really pumped to take it up another notch this next 4 weeks with less 'slip' days and more exercise.  I will post here from time to time to keep updated.

Writer's Block: Carpe Diem

How often do you think about, and plan for, the future? Do you think it ever interferes with your ability to live in the moment?

I don't plan or think enough about the future to most.  I live mostly for today, there is enough worry here.

Here I go again (for real)

My LJ friend Sarahfae has inspired me to go raw again at least for a week.  I will be using all her recipes from www.addictedtoveggies.com/.  Thank you for your awesome recipes Sarafae!  I am also getting down to bidness and riding my bike or walking at least 5 days this week.  It is so beautiful out I want to take full advantage of the weather.  All this new energy has me feeling a bit randy too :)  Guess my husband will be getting some benefit as well :)

Witch?

  Well I am officially going to do it.  I am going to actually study witchcraft, I "practice" it all the time, since childhood but never seriously, it was just who I was.  Well for some reason now I feel the need to study and informally associate (online) myself with witches.  I have put it off for years, and just dabbled here and there, but it is my core and always has been.   Fear of so many things is why I have put it off until now and I belivve that my inner self has been screaming at me to move forward, instead of remaining spiritually stagnant .  I have taken the last 4 years of off any kind off real inner work, I believe I needed the buffer between worlds so that I may fully absorb what I am about to learn. 

  I will keep this somewhat private as not to illicit judgment from family or friends.  If any of you already are on this path (some of you I know are) I would love to learn whatever wisdom you have gleaned over the years.  I also belive that this goes hand in hand with my raw food journey, to work on the inner self and the outer self.  I haven't officially started back raw yet, as I feared the last "outing" threw me for a loop!  However any real journey isn't about quitting, then I would have failed, its about contiuing on this life path that I am passionate about!

Buh Bye...But only for a few days.

  We are leaving for the weekend to visit/work with a couple of good friends.  My husband is going to be refinishing their floors for them, and while he is doing that, I will be shopping and visiting with my girlfriend.  I am really looking forward to it, however I am nervous about how I am going to sustain my good progress.  I will be bringing as much as I can with me (reasonably).  Its not as much food as it will be drinking.  My husband and I love to go out with friends, its a huge part of our life, now we aren't alcoholics we really only go out on average 2x per month, more during the summer months and this month I think we only went out once.  So I will be bringing with me Frey wine and some saki to make sakitinis with fresh juice,  and I will be drinking moderately.  I am not going to beat myself up and stress about any "slips" I may have, I am on a journey to try to learn how to love the journey, and right now I am feeling pretty good!  See ya all next week!

Bloated

I have finally overcome itching (dry skin), then I go through some emotional detox yesterday which was brutal, now today I feel bloated and sorta constipated. I gained 1lb since yesterday, however I am on day two of my period and realize that much of this is hormonal.  Yesterday was a pretty good raw day for me, I really didn't feel hungry most of the day.  At lunch I had brown rice (not raw) and peas with zucchini humus and at supper I had zucchini spaghetti with cashew sauce and peas, desert was frozen bananas with chocolate "pudding".  Today I had Ezekiel bread with coconut butter and blueberry jam (only fruit) Now I am eating the leftover rice I had yesterday.  I also got a great nights sleep, but now I am feeling UBER sleepy.  It is funny how each day I feel different, I expect this for a couple more weeks as my body adjusts and detoxes.   So for now I am just relaxing and letting my body do what it has to do, I don't think I will be exercising much till next week after I adjust a bit more.

Can you say "emotions".

Wow, I had a meltdown this morning.  I dont know if it is just my hormones or a combination of raw and hormones, but I had an uncontrollable outburst.  I started crying and couldn't stop.  I was overwhelmed with feelings of being undesirable and incompetent.  I felt like no one really liked me and that I ruined everyone's life.  Lasted for about 5 mins and then fine.   My poor husband didn't know what hit him, I could tell he was confused about what to do or say.  Interesting to say the least.

  I think I made 75% raw yesterday, I didn't do much as far as exercise except clean the house.  Today I am going to go as raw as possible and start back on painting the back porch.  Then possibly a bike ride or walk when it warms up.  Oh and the itching is gone, I rubbed myself down with some lotion and that seemed to clear it up.  Not sure why the coconut oil didn't do the trick.

    I also will be making coleslaw, zucchini humus and "spaghetti Alfredo"  Not sure what the scale says, I started my day with a huge glass of lemon water and salt per David Wolfe.  Interesting, it was the first time I tried that so maybe it "cleaned" me out emotionally as well :)

Good week!

Yay!!! I am so excited, my one week results are in!

Weight: 186 -4.5lbs

Chest: -2 inches
Waist: --1.75 inches
Hips: -.50 inches.


Plus no heartburn!!!! I still feel a little laggy and shortness of breath when exerting myself for any length of time. I also still have the weird lumps on my left side and some breast pain on left side, however we are close to my moon time.

This coming week I will start phase 2. Adding more raw, mostly greens and exercising more. The only exercise I got this week was one 5 mile bike ride (that almost killed me), and painting the back room. So this week my goal will be a min of 3 days with exercise, either bike riding or walking. I am hoping for the same results this week!
