Back in thee ol' saddle again!
Tryin' once again!
Well, here I am again. Looking forward to trying the 30 day raw challenge again. A couple of months ago I took the challenge and ended up only lasting 2 weeks.....so as to not think of myself as a failure...I have happily told myself that I completed....my "2 week raw challenge" LoL.
I was soo thrilled to be able to complete 2 weeks with nothing but beautiful raw living foods....it was amazing. However, I ran into some trip ups along the way. Back then I didnt have a dehydrator (which thankfully I now have! I loooove it...it is going to make my raw month much easier)...I also was dealing with stress issues...Sadly my Mother-in-law died on Mother's day. Which totally messed me up emotionally. I found myself craving my old comfort S.A.D. foods.....carbs and more carbs. (bring on the sourdough bread please..haha) But, thankfully, even though I did find myself eating some S.A.D. food...I managed to still eat alot of raw dishes.
This whole tragic situation with my Mother-in-law has really made me take a look at my life. I totally realize that I am an emotional eater...not to mention I just simply loooove certain S.A.D. foods. BUT....that is okay. I am working on that. One day at a time, right? ;)
I want to be the best that I can be....eating raw is my goal. Balancing my life is my goal....and if I have to take baby steps to get there...well then, I hope that each step leads me to a wiser and more compassionate self.
