View Full Version : Oh, what a mess up!

I'm back after 6 days of good vs. bad. Friday, i was at day 17 of my raw food challenge and doing amazingly! I hadn't even looked twice at cooked food or had any craving whatsoever... then my best friend whom i hadn't seen in 1 year came down to visit. We decided to go to my parent's house to visit for a few days. Well, my parents ordered pizza and friends and family sat down to eat. I made my salad and sat with all of them... that's when i just couldn't keep my self-control any longer; i had a slice of pizza and fries. That was bad enough... but even worse is the fact that i was high on cooked food for the next 3 days. I had everthing from popcorn, to fish, to crackers, to rice... I felt so disgusting and ashamed. But i have been back on raw for two days and i'm counting them as days 18 and 19! I don't want to think about my mistake as failure and start over... it's just a step back! So i'm just omitting the 4 bad day sfrom my challenge.. :)
So i'm back and happy to be here! Hope everyone is doing well!

I hear you Sara. We went camping a couple of weekends ago with family. It was a family reunion/camping event. Talk about FOOD, I just couldn't help myself to some fried fish and all the other yummy things that had laid out. I did continue to eat a lot of raw stuff but I gave in to everyone saying "Is that all you are going to eat". UGH!
This is truely a process of steps, a few of them are backwards but MOST of them are forward HO! HA!

It is so good to hear the "mess" up stories....as we all mess up.....I'm glad that you are counting these as day 18 and 19!! Good for you!
Angela, reading about your camping was funny to me....we had 2 big camping trips this summer. I made it through both of them.. I was so proud and my family/friends couldn't believe my self control(either could I actually)....but when arriving home from the second trip, I saw what a mess my dog had made of the yard and it through me over the top!! YIKES,,,, I then helped myself to some oreo cookies....self control is a funny thing..sometimes I have it,, sometimes I don't. :(

I blew it Labor Day after 10 days of raw by having peaches that had sugar on them. They were serving BLTs so I brought along the dehydrated eggplant(bacon why not) and onion bread for my BLT, I also had watermelon, I turned down all the other food(macaroni salad, potatoe chips etc.) for dessert it was peach sundaes, I said I'll just have peaches then I found out they were cut up and mixed with sugar. Oh well, I won't beat myself up over it.
