Day 11... Morning Temptation
Exercising in the morning before work has been so helpful in this raw transition. It sets the tone for the day...me feeling good and confident about my body...feeling energized and not wanting coffee...feeling motivated and very productive.
Today was different though. I slept it too late to fit in my workout. I was bummed. My body was tired though, and it wanted more rest. I have been on the go all week, and exercising really hard, so maybe I really needed a morning off. I'll still go and workout later today though. I don't think I could get through the day if I didn't run or do some other form of exercise!
Temptation was everywhere this morning. People on the bus with their Starbucks coffee in hand...and me almost wanting some. Almost. I made it though. I'm having a cup of green tea right now instead. Then I logged on here to get my mind back on the right track. It works every time! I am so thankful for this community of support. Going raw would be much more difficult without you all here! Thank you! :)
Physically, I am feeling okay. I have had several coughing episodes in the past day, just a really painful scratchy annoying cough. But then once I get it out I feel fine. Not sure what this is about.
I usually use a blender for my green smoothies (a normal cheap blender, not a good one), which means I have to add lots of water to get my greens to blend properly. Today I used my food processor instead. Why didn't I think of this before? I didn't have to add a drop of water, and everything blended perfectly! This means that I can put more greens in my smoothies without having to drink so much more water and get too full! The food processor means more dishes to wash by hand...but it's worth it. I want a dishwasher! Next time we move, that is a requirement.
I'll update on food inkake later this afternoon.
