Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
So here I am...ready to start my first initiative with RFR in the Vault.
I'm feeling great, eating raw with the exception of Christmas day and the day after :) (I bought an amazing vegan apple pie from my favorite vegan restaurant) It was great!
I made a deal with a friend of mine at work. She is eating "raw" for 30 days at the start of Jan. 1st. She challenged me to try fruitarianism again for 30 days. I love it when people challenge me and we make deals together. So I accepted and am now going to be trying out a fruity diet again after new years for the next 30 days :)
With that in mind, all of the sudden today I get that all-or-nothing feeling, as if today is already in my past, and I think "Oh, I should go to CHIPOTLE and get a BURRITO (since I won't be eating them anymore...?). YEAH GREAT IDEA." I start to think about how I'll feel after I eat the burrito but I don't care, I'm thinking of following through with the idea.
Then all of the sudden, I think...No. I don't even want a burrito, and I'm not even that hungry, what am I TALKING ABOUT.
So...instead of getting a burrito that I actually didn't care to eat, but just felt like being crazy with, I went to the mall on my lunch break, walked around and enjoyed the sunny weather outside.
Then...I sign into facebook and see that Lori (Inspire2Act/Lori Painter) is going to be in the bay area tomorrow and is thinking of going to Cafe Gratitude. I actually had been thinking about the same thing, since I got paid for a job I did 2 months ago, so I write "Hey I was thinking of doing the same thing, enjoy!" She writes back that she and Druhmil (from www.giveittomeraw.com and Dr. Junger's "Cleanse" program) are actually going to be in Berkeley tomorrow morning and that we should get together for breakfast at Cafe Gratitude! Soooo awesome!
Of course I said YES! So now I'm all giddy for my raw peeps meetup...especially since I've never actually met Lori or Druhmil in person yet. Lori, I've talked with over the internet here and there, but I haven't talked with Druhmil much. So I'm just really excited, and looking back at my Chipotle thought and laughing...
I'm just going with the flow and observing my thoughts and my body. I'm too excited to start this initiative, this new year, reflecting on my life and what I can offer...and I think that tomorrow morning's breakfast date is the perfect way to bring in 2011!!!
I hope you all are doing great, I look forward to seeing you in the VAULT!
