Reflections on my first week 100% raw
Today I have been fullly raw for 7 days. A full week. I lost 6 lbs (actually lost 7 but gained one back).
I feel healthier and happier. I feel optimistic about the future. I feel whole. I feel complete.
I think I am having some detox. My head, from time to time, feels a bit off. I can't describe it. It's sort of like it's cloudy but with pressure. I don't know if it's detox or dehydration. Either way I'm drinking a lot of water to help flush my system.
I feel confident. I already found a raw dish that is helping me when I crave cooked. The Date Nut Torte from Alissa's book. It is so yummy and after a few bites I don't crave whatever it was I wanted. It's so yum. The raw apple pie too though my husband keeps on finishing it on me. lol
My kids are nowhere near raw though they're eating more whole foods.
Tonight I cooked chicken for them. Chicken is one of my favorite meats. Oddly, I felt fine eating the wrap I made. I didn't feel tempted all that much.
I sort of wanted a bite at one point. Then I looked at them and reminded myself that they were flesh. I felt so disgusted that I was completely turned off.
My period is comming and I know I'll crave chocolate. The cravings have started already. I'm going to try to make raw chocolate. Not sure what though. I need to buy the ingredients still.
Well, that's it for now.
