WHEW.... a detox weekend!
RAWBIES...TODAY IS DAY 30!!! WHOOOHOOO!! of course the day is not over yet. But it IS day 30!! I'm so happy! it feels good to know that I made it through the 30 day challenge, and I feel so awesome!
This weekend though - was a bit tough - I guess my body casting off a few last minute ooogee stuffs yuck! Woke up Saturday with my right eye feeling like it had been washed with dry sand, there was goop all over the outside (yuck and probably tmi!) sorry! It was soooo itchy, red, sore, and DRY -DRY - DRY!!! how can it be dry with goop too?? it was weird - THEN.. MY nose starts - my sinuses were like two running faucets... I might as well have stuck two paper towels up there and leave them there (now that's a visual!) Then I could finish up all my chores - like shopping, house cleaning!! LOL!! Wouldn't I look pretty at the Farmers Market like that LOL !! I didn't even go to work on Saturday I felt so crappy.
But this morning I woke up and everything was rosy again - I'm sure mostly cuz I want to go to Hula! (and my body KNOWS I would be VERY UPSET if I had to miss hula!! )
I made a batch of fudge balls to give to my Kumu. I think she'll LOVE them!
Well. since today is day 30 - I'm VERY tempted to run upstairs and weigh myself. Or officially - am I supposed to wait until tomorrow?
I AM SO UP for the May challenge. I was trying to get all caught up with all the posts this weekend! I feel like I missed so much! I didn't even finish reading them all - but I figured I better post because I have to leave for Hula soon. So - I was making all these comments on the posts I had missed - so you might have some comments from me (a little late - but just had to add my 2 RAW sents !!)
Everyone is doing SO AMAZING!! we RAWK!! it's so encouraging to read all the stuff everyone is doing - all the gardens being planted! TOO COOL!!!
Even punks bowlegs are exciting!!!
(if they were fat they'd still be rubbing together!! so SEE!!! WATER LOSS-WEIGHT LOSS - WHATEVER!! WE'RE LOOKING AND FEELING GOOD!!!
Okay - food wise - I've found I've gotton a bit lazy since discovering flax seed crackers... hmmm, not good. IN fact - I haven't even had a salad in like a week (bad Xena!!)
So - my May challenge is to start eating smarter.
Other than my Spirulina and water, EAT more greens!
( a SMILING GREEN HEAD TO REMIND ME!!)
(I did make the pesto pasta from Alissa's book the other day - and that was AMAZING!!) ummm that's sorta green! it's got basil in it!!
I think I'll make some lettuce wraps or something - I gotta really concentrate on eating smart - not just filling up on flax seed crackers, and oranges!
today - I had my spirulina - 1 orange, and I'm in the process of finishing up a ruby red grapefruit. Delish!
My football sized avocados are almost ripe! So - I'll do something amazing with that. although I really want corn chips with guac. I'll probably try to do something in Alissa's book that is more in the line with some kind of 'meal', hmm.... any suggestions?
Oh-- dh made this meal last night that I used to just love with sauerkraut and some dead meat -- I ate the pesto pasta instead- and it felt so good to be able to feel like - YES -- I CHOOSE TO EAT THIS INSTEAD OF THAT... and that's a good thing. I didn't feel deprived, I didn't feel like even the slightest twinge of ... 'ooo that used to taste soo good!'
Gotta tell you - I really missed all of you this weekend! Strange - we dont' really know each other and somewhere along the way - we all became Ohana (family!)
Many Mahalos (thank yous) to Alissa and her staff for allowing us this space to vent, share, laugh, dress in our super hero costumes!! and to each and every one of you -- love hugs and kisses (big sloppy wet ones!!) cuz you are the BEST bunch of CRAZY RAWBIES!!! having you there everyday - that's what's helped me through the 30 days!! Life is good - and then you find a crazy bunch of FANATICAL RAW FOOD EATERS to share it with !!! LOL!!!
Okay - I can't wait any longer -- I'm going to go sheeshee (local way of saying I'm going to go peepee) get what ever water I can OUT of me and then - I'm going to go weigh myself!
oooo how exciting!
