Ok, this should have been posted last night but yesterday was such a busy day and then before I knew it, it was very late and I was exhausted. So I'll post it now and be back later for todays progress.
I did really well yesterday, day 4, and I felt good. I had plenty of water all day, had a couple bananas in the morning and then for lunch had zucchini alfredo. Mid afternoon I had a fuji apple and then at dinner time I ate vegetarian instead of raw.
You see, Friday nights have always been date night for dh and I. We don't always go out but we always get something for dinner and hang out or watch a movie. So I had decided that I was going to allow myself to eat a non raw meal but I would stay vegetarian at least. I know it's not the greatest thing I could have eaten but I had two slices of veggie pizza. Again, once I finished it I wish I hadn't done that.
I'm not going to get frustrated because the way I see it, this is a learning process all over again. It takes those little slip ups for me to realize how important being raw is to me. So I slip here and there, not a huge deal right? If it teaches me something then I'm ok with that. So I'm not upset about it and I'm just moving on.
Other then the dinner, I feel I did great yesterday so onto day 5!
And on a lighter side...........I got myself a little webcam because I decided I wanted to keep a video diary of this journey. I'm going to take pictures as well because I think they are important to keep you motivated and the transformations are amazing to see.
But I figure a video blog will keep me accountable to myself and maybe help others struggling with their raw journey. That is if I get the guts to actually post the videos. LOL I created a YouTube account that I think I might use for a video diary. But, I think videos are different then still pictures because as great as still pictures are......they only show the surface. Do they show the attitude change? The energy? The excitement for this way of living? NO! They certainly don't.
So I figure if I can actually see the emotional changes that I know will happen, that will keep me even more excited to keep up with it. My first video (I created last night) was blah and lifeless and obviously insecure. So if a month down the road I compare that with one full of energy and excitement...........wow, isn't that a testimony in itself?????
I can't wait to see the transformation...........so stay tuned people, a new me is on it's way.
Well, I'm off to my Saturday job now............I'll post later for today.
