Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Earlier this year my husband and I decided that we would make some improvements to our home.  We've purchased and are having installed some maple flooring.  We are also having the house painted inside, from top to bottom.  It's going to look beautiful.

We also decided to do something else.  We have decided to do a major cleanup of our home.  We both have been acquiring quite a bit of stuff for some time.  About a week ago, I picked up some moving boxes and I am pretending to move.  We are going through, sorting and making decisions about everything we own.  It's amazing the feelings that come up in this process.

One of those feelings is a tremendous amount of guilt about acquiring all this stuff to begin with.  Why did we ever think we needed any of it?  Another is a tremendous sense of relief as we let things go.  Most of what is leaving the house for good is going on to be available to someone else who will enjoy it.

I recently began to be raw again after a long hiatus.  I got a very bad case of 'diet brain' and decided that it was just crazy to keep doing this.  I've lost and gained, lost and gained, and then just gained weight most of my life.  This latest stint of raw (although only since the day after Christmas) hasn't been 100%, but it's been very high raw.  I've been feeling the need to let things go.  I've been feeling hampered by my surroundings.  I think this is a really important part of the process.  Letting go of stuff.  Who knew?

How exciting to be doing your house over!  I'm dying to redo my kitchen floor (wood).  You are inspiring me to start decluttering.  I'm starting Cleanse America tomorrow and will make decluttering part of it.

You are definitely on your way to good changes coming through.....clearing space whether it be things you don't need or thoughts/habits....it's all letting in the light......giving you room to move.....this is exciting!
