Days 6, 7, 8 and 9
Wow, I don't do so well at this daily entry stuff. I just hate coming home from work and getting on the computer again even for fun stuff.
Since I have 4 days to catch up on I'm not going to list what I ate each day. I actually did pretty good. I had 2 more slips but they were conscious decisions. Saturday a friend and I went to dinner and a movie. I had a salad that was large but had very non-raw ingredients in it. Still, for me to go to a restaurant and have a salad for a meal is a BIG change. I always have a salad but then I have some major entree after that.
So despite not being raw, I was proud I stuck with a salad. I remained all raw Sunday. Yesterday, Monday (Day 8), I was raw all day but did have a few bites of the roast I made my kids. And then today I was all raw, having a green smoothie for breakfast and lunch, a pear and almonds for snack and a carob shake this evening.
Mood-wise I've been pretty depressed. I think this is because I'm used to entertaining myself with food (fast food, restaurants, yummy snacks) and now that I am not giving in to every whim I feel deprived, then depressed.
Still, it hasn't made me give up which is surprising. I'm not even "white knuckling" it either. I just feel like all my bad habits have gotten me nowhere and if I don't change then what I see staring back at me in the mirror is all I have to look forward to. Not a happy prospect.
I'm not being 100% which was my goal but I've failed so much every other time that I am just not stressing any little slips. Beating myself has just led me to throwing all my good work away so I'm just moving on.
Since I kind of missed my first week review I'll do a review tomorrow on accomplishments weight-wise, mood-wise, etc.
Onwards and upwards, ~Megan~
