Happy Erica day!
So..I am having a pretty good day today:) ..I worked but it wasn't too hard..only had to deal with one bad comment about my eating today..well actually it was more of a snort/sarcastic laugh..but whatev ..I've done really well and I've had a mini breakthru on some of my thinking...
I think I have been somewhat caught up in this whole..I know it's not good for me..but i'm young and don't feel too bad when I eat cooked food..so y not be able to sometimes..also somewhat a a perfection thing going on..and too caught up over the %'s...so I was thinking how it really is great that I know about Raw now..and think how much healthier I'll be than most people when I get older..and tho I think the taste of cooked is sometimes better..it's really just a disguise..also I was reading about how the toxins u get from cooked food is really very addicting and pretty much like the toxins u would get from doing drugs which obviously is addicting...and that made me relly kinda mad..cuz when I thought about it..it's not that I HAVE to have cooked food..like I may want it..but it's not "me" it's the addiction..and I've never done drugs (excluding alcohol) for the exact reason of I don't like not being in control of my own self...and it just pissed me off that we are basically forced to eat such unhealthy things and then become addicted to them..and it's kinda not fair!...and when we start to figure it out..we have all these other "addicts" telling us how dumb we are..and with most addicts u r supposed to stay away from your old addict "friends" so u don't fall..but with this u really can't stay away from everyone..so it's like an uphill battle with ourselves, our addiction, and other people..which then made me smile..Cuz I do love a challange! ..
Also I was on this other raw food blog site from Sarma from OneluckyDuck...and something she said made so much sense ..she said that people always ask her "So, what can't you eat on this 'diet' of yours?"..and also offer something then say" oh, yeah, U can't eat that"..to which she says she always responds (well sometimes just in her own head) "I can eat whatever I want to..I just don't want to eat that crap"..she says she does this cuz she likes to cross lines if there are any..also she doesn't want to be obbsessed with how much (%) she is or isn't eating..just enjoy living your life..and being healthy and happier raw..and eat what u want to not what u feel u have too ..
So it was a pretty lightbulb over head kind of day today..

Dinner still undecided

ps.I got my cats some wheatgrass to chomp on today..they LOVE IT!!!;)
