Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I feel alright....technically its not really the first day as yesterday was descion making day, but when I woke yesterday morning, I didnt know what I was going to do ....so today is the day. I slept amazing last night. I went to bed feeling a little bit hungry , but I decided that I just wanted to give my belly a rest...and I must say that last night was the first night in awhile were nightmares werent abound. I slept well...and woke this morning feeling alright. I have a bit of a headache from not drinking coffee, and I am hungry but good. For breakfast I am drinking a chocolate vega shake with strawberries all blended in a smoothie. Lunch will be whatever I find ready in my garden this morning, after I weed and water. Dinner , I am not sure what that looks like at this point. I am also going to sprort some mung beans , I love adding sprouts to everything. I want to emphasize that this choice was not an easy one. It wasnt something I came to easily and quick..so I am hopeful that with a little bit of suport I will be able to get through the tough times. The times when my brain is telling me...no you dont need to do this. My brain is funny and doesnt sht off easily. lol
I am scared to go 100% raw , but I am even more scared not too . sort of like an addict....if you are trying to get someone off herion, you dont say to them....well you can have this for one meal a day but thats it. No , you take the drug completly out of the equation and see where you end up. So treating my food that I was eating like a drug means that I cant have it. I know that if I was able to eat pasta at one meal, for example, it wouldnt be long before I slipped right back into old habits AND I would be gorging on pasta for that one meal. So the plan is..one bite, one meal at a time....with a promise to myself constantly that I am going to take care of myself. That I care enough to take care of myself. Prayer, asking God to take control and to lead me to better health is also going to be a huge part of the journey for me. I cannot do this alone. I know that.
So wish me luck.....and peace....clarity...love.
