Over the flu...
Well, my kids and I are FINALLY over the flu!!! Now my Hubby has it! We've all been sick for a couple of weeks. I started eating warm soup and got off of my RAW diet, which was disappointing to me. I've been struggling to get back on it, one meal at a time. I do good with the mornings...only fruit: mostly Clementines, Bananas and Strawberries.
My blender broke, so I have not made my Smoothies either. Physically I'm o.k., but mentally I beat myself up everytime I eat something I know is bad for me. And, I feel disappointed in myself because I've been trying to do this for so long and I'm still at my same weight because I'm not 100% RAW. In my heart I truly WANT to be RAW. But, cooking for my family is taking a toll on me. I feel like there is a struggle going on in my head and I'm gonna scream if I can't get a hold on myself!
Today, I made Alissa's Eggplant Pizza and cut the Eggplant exactly 1/2 inch the way the recipe says, but after 9 hours dehydrating, it's still hard on the inside and doesn't taste good. I always felt that I was cutting it too thin, and tried to follow her recipe to the letter. I really like the topping, though...
I did get up this morning and do 45 minutes on the treadmill!!! It felt really good too!!! I think I'm gonna look for a Vitamix on ebay and try to find a cheap one that I can afford... Well, it doesn't cost to look, right!!!
