View Full Version : December 4th - Day 4
12-03-2009, 02:02 PM
Welcome to day 4!
Ugh. Today is not starting off well. Alarm went off at 5:15 am. I got up, but all I wanted to do was crawl back in bed between my flannel sheets. Atlanta was too cold at 5:15.
Went to camp at 6am and worked out, but there was just too much running today and my right knee has been bothering me. So I quietly sneaked out after 45 minutes.
Its 10am now and I've been hungry since I've been up. So far:
1 banana and one glass water w/lemon before camp
1 whole Raw Revolution coconut bar (so high in calories, but I was hungry and ate the entire bar. It seems to be filling)
A few walnuts
1 glass canteloupe juice
1 cup gunpowder green tea (I caved)
For lunch I will have a spinach, avo, onion, walnut, cucumber, alfalfa sprout salad. I will use olive oil and lemon as dressing.
Dinner is up-in-the-air. I have low energy today and I can't seem to think of anything at the moment.
I've noticed my skin, especially my face, is feeling really soft. I still don't have that "glow" yet that everyone talks about. At least I don't see it. My weight has not budged one bit.

I too did not get the best start on today - I have just finally eaten and it's 1PM!! Change in schedule that I did not prepare myself for food
I had a stuffed portobella for lunch. Am still starved and going to guzzle some water so I don't go for easy......

I feel like there is something off in the air lately, things are breaking, everyone is in a foul mood (but it's always like that here in Mass..lol..).... Yesterday was a total bust... lesson learned.... today has been tough, made some fresh salsa for lunch, planning on a smoothie for dinner, I feel really good when I have a smoothie for dinner, it's working well, better sleep and wake up more refreshed... :)
Will check back in tomorrow
Have a Rawsome night everyone!
I'm still in a fog, even after lunch. Salad was wonderful and I felt good again for about 30 minutes, but now, not so hot. I feel like I'm back in detox again. Head is foggy, eyelids are heavy, slight headache. I ate a pear, still no energy. ZZZzzzzzzzz

I'm off work today (and the next nine days - yay!) and today is my husband's birthday (he's not raw), so it's been tough to make plans for today and the weekend while holding my resolve to stay raw. But so far so good :)
So far I've had some almonds, an apple and a banana. Will probably have flax crackers and guacamole tonight, maybe some home made tropical sorbet, maybe a green smoothie. We'll see!

I feel detox in the air....and today was no exception. I started craving SAD and I just felt like crying. I ended up having a banana and a vampire juice (carrots, beets,parsley,celery,orange and some other shtuff) which did not satisfy THAT craving but it filled me up. And thats what its all about...no not the hokie pokie:D but just getting through those cravings. I probably would have said "You've been good today so whats one little bite???" and that I know the answer to, that its not just one little bite. Its such a strong addiction like alcohol and drugs (dont mean to offend AA's or NA'S), that when you detox it hurts and you feel like crying or screaming and you get body aches and headaches. But its all so worth it!!!

It is an addiction! On Thanksgiving I had a few non raw desserts & I just KNEW the downward spiral so I said I'm doin' a cleanse starting tomorrow b/c I don't wanna go down that route & that's what all of you guys are doing! So props to you all!
Keep up the awesome work :)

Ok, today. Whatta day...
B: spinach, banana cacao green smoothie and a banana and walnuts
L: spinach, mushroom, coconut aminos salad w 1/2 avocado, 3 ears (holycowthatisalot) of corn.
S: 2 oranges, 1 banana
D: spinach, romaine salad w coconut aminos, 1/2 avocado, a carrot.
In stressful times, I must sit back and be grateful for every blessing I have been given and understand the certainty that everything is turning out perfectly. I think I may go on a green smoothie fast tomorrow. I have a facial tomorrow, and I'm gonna shape up. :]
Waking up at 5:30 and running. This always turns things around. <3

I have been detoxing since last Wednesday. I have been in bed the whole week and today finally went outside. Its cold here in CO. Can't wait till it passes but I did eat pretty badly before 100% raw.
