Mmm Mmm Juice

So I am super disappointed in myself. Wednesday and Thursday I wasn't raw and I went waaaaay off program. However, I'm realizing what I did wrong. I wasn't prepared. Often I'll leave the house and wind up running errands or doing various other things, and then I'll forget to bring enough food with me. Then I'm starving and just about ready to eat a cow ( lord knows I've been a veggie my whole existence) and so I get very tempted to eat junk. I find that when I dont eat raw it brings back a lot of emotional frustrations because I am still struggling with an eating disorder and it makes me want to revert back to old habits. But, its not about how many times you fall down, but how many times you get back up again. I know I can do this and I will not sabotage myself anymore. I refuse to. So I'm not sure whether or not I should restart from day one or if I should just keep going and add on additional days. I think i'm going to do the latter.
So starting today I'm going to be juice feasting. I'm just going to juice feast through Tuesday. I figure that this will help give me some time to prepare some food and snacks for myself for the rest of the week.

The Day of the 3rd Prime

Today is day 5 of my raw food experiment. Its going amazingly well. The other day I made some amazing Kale chips for the first time and I made some Sweet And Spicy Pecans that were quite delicious. I also attempted a lemon berry cake that was out of the Cafe Gratitude Recipe Book, however that one didn't work out quite as well for me. I weighed myself this morning and I have already lost 11lbs. I still cant believe it. I am beyond amazed. In addition, I can see and feel my body detoxing in the form of a huge zit on my face which I've named Sally Mae. My nose is also stuffy in the morning but I know its just my body trying to get rid of all of the crap I've shoved into it recently. Perhaps next week I'll start going to the gym again.

In the beginning, there was..well there just was. I decided to create this blog to aide me in the process of changing over to a raw foods lifestyle. I know this will be far more than a challenge, however I know that my mind and body is up for a change for the better. I have lived my life far to long being the "big girl" and being frustrated with the person staring back at me in the mirror. So here I am ready to begin the first day of the rest of my life.
My main purpose for this blog is to chronicle my experiences transitioning to an all raw lifestyle. I was recently inspired by the documentary Simply Raw Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days . Although I have no major health opportunities, I have decided to take the plunge after being raw off and on for the past 7 months. Presently I have decided to undergo a challenge to be 100% raw for the next 100 days. By the end of this challenge I am looking forward to seeing and feeling major changes in my body. I want to have released at least 30lbs, eliminate the need for an inhaler ( I have asthma), as well as improve my eyesight. I am also looking forward to learning more about holistic nutrition and the benefits of a living foods diet.
