Day 2- the first raw party experience

We have fat, fluffy snow falling here in Massachusetts! It is the perfect end to the year (although I can't believe it is New Year's eve already- I have no idea where this year has gone!).
I feel wonderful today- empowered, happy, healthy and so FREE. My energy is already coming back- I bounced out of bed today after only 5 hours of sleep. I feel more like my old self than I have in years.
Yesterday went well- I ate mostly raw, but did have a half of a plain sweet potato cooked at dinner (a conscious choice- I'm going through some leftover cooked sweet potatoes I have during transition). I tried my first green smoothie for breakfast, which was yummy. I don't think I got enough greens yesterday though, despite the smoothie and some salads- I have a big bunch of kale sitting in the fridge that is begging to be eaten!
Tonight we are going to a party at a friend's house, and I know it will be an interesting experience staying raw. I'll bring something to munch on and think I should be fine. I'm actually less concerned about staying raw than I am with "coming out" with this new change. I'm not sure I particularly feel like discussing it until I feel more knowledgable and able to answer the inevitable questions. Perhaps it will be a non-issue, however- with all the activities planned, what I eat or don't eat may not be noticed.
Time to blend up some breakfast! Happy New Year everyone!
