Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I told my supervisor that I have hypoglycemia and need to eat at certain times so they allowed me to go to dinner earlier last night. Went to eat at 6:45 pm and then took just 15 mins and saved my other 15 for a break later. It worked well for me. I just divided up salad and veggies in two portions and it was a much more pleasant night.
I don't have this issue so much when I am not working till midnight. I can just go to bed and that solves the problem.
When I got home I drank Kava Kava tea to calm down so I could sleep and was finally in bed by 1am. Not really my ideal schedule but what I have to do for now.
Put in a resume for a job yesterday and hoping it works out. Not sure, the hours will be 5 am to 1 pm. Could be kind of tough as I am not a morning person and it is only min. wage. However it is at a gym which I think I would love.
Wondering if my body can adapt to those hours, I woke up at 5:30 this morning and felt like there was no way I could do it. However maybe if I got this job I would not have to work other job and would not be up at midnight or later. Decisions, decisions, got to really think about it as they are going to make a dicision by the end of the week and I have a feeling they will offer the job to me. Not many people want to be at work at 5 in the morning!:O) Not even sure I do!:O) But it would give me weekends off and evenings with my family.
As far as my detox, it is going great this week after I recommitted to sticking with it. NO MORE SUGAR for this kid! NO MORE EXCUSES! That small bit of cake and lactose free icecream, yeah it was WAY not worth it, felt so very ill after that. Next time if I feel major temptation, I will resort to something less bothersome like coconut milk icecream and will have it on hands during the festivity. Or maybe I could make a nut butter icecream and have them frozen in my frig in a small portion size container. I could use stevia for sweetening, I may experiment with this. As far as a replacement for cake? I have no idea what to do with that one. Any suggestions? Keep in mind I don't do well with fruit sugars either. However someone mentioned dates but I think they would be very high in sugar content. I definately think agave is out and so is honey,
I am staying away from grains of any kind right now too so that is not an option at this point in time. It maybe later though when I am done detoxing.
So my very Big Long Term goal is to be close to my goal weight by my birthday next May or at least comfortable in a size 8 jean, not sure I will get into a 6 again, and if not, it is okay. I am going by size rather than the scale, since I am lifting weights. Ideally for my 5'2" frame I should only weigh 125 but not sure that is realistic. I will be celebrating if I make it to 145 or 150!
Got 9 months to see what happens and how my body cooperates. Its kind of like waiting for a baby!:O) Maybe I am going to be the baby this time! Ha, Ha! It is like chiseling out my body I used to have from layers of toxins. Interesting, as I am seeing bony profiles in places I have not seen in a long time.
I can say I am very happy with my results so far, and I feel great despite the couple of hic ups along the way. Compared to a few years ago, I feel absolutely wonderful and so thankful!
Hope you all are enjoying your raw food journey. It is like a big adventure isn't it? Exploring new foods and noticing changes in your body, and peace of mind. So worth the effort!
