Had a rough day yesterday and didn't go juice alone as planned. Probably trying it on a holiday weekend was not a good idea, as I really wanted to be in a better space about it. I may try for tomorrow to start. I also wanted to do a 4 day fast every month during my moontime, which is now, so I will catch the end of it.
We had Easter here today. We aren't religious, so its just a family party day really. But...lots of goodies. I am thinking jelly beans aren't raw... had a few of those. But, I did well the rest of the day...some juices, 2 salads and I am really not that hungry now, but I may have some veggies with mock nacho cheese later.
I am finding my biggest challenge with being 'totally' raw is I am a taste-tester! When I make something for my kids, especially something new, I taste it...often without even thinking. Granted, we eat very healthy foods and I make almost everything from scratch, but its cooked. I guess his is another thing for me to look at. When I make a 'mistake' my immediate reaction is to beat myself up over it, instead of just letting it go or not caring. Its not like I am tasting a hot dog I just made, its healthful wholesome food I made from scratch, for crying out loud! I have that tendancy to go 'all or nothing' and do not cut myself any slack. I need to take a look at that...
My back is feeling better, though not 100%. I need to keep up with my PT exercises. I did run today, a little longer than I was and felt great.
Today I ate:
more grapefruit juice
