SOOOOOOOOO, how's your EGGPLANT????? I just gotta know!!!! Come on!!! Don't leave me hangin' GIRL!!!!
WEEK 7 Day 48
Had what's left of my Granola Cerael w/Almond Milk. But, today's been mostly a fruit day... Had 3 Bananas, Grapes and Apples. I will make a Green Smoothie in an hour or so... Not in the mood to eat anything today. I guess that's what Alissa was talking about...simplifying as you go on. I do have plenty of Goodies in the freezer and Salad Stuff, but I'm just don't want to eat, so I'm not... I'm trying to listen to my body.
Hope you all are well. I'm feeling much better today... Still a bit congested, but much better. I will commit to doing 45 minutes on the treadmill today...a slow steady walk...gotta build up to running again.
couldn't find any eggplant here.perhaps t's not the right time? I'll keep searchin'
OK you guys!!! I'm having a TOUGH moment!!! I'm upstairs in my room and my Hubby is downstairs cooking and the SMELL is COMING through the DOOR!!!! O.k....I can DO this... I'm NOT gonna have ANY!!! I'm gonna stay up here and I'm gonna read my BLOG and I'm NOT gonna go downstairs!!!
Why is this happening to me NOW!!! WHY today!!! I'm doing SOOOO good!!! I'm almost to 50 DAYS!!!! I'm doing so Good!!!! I CAN'T STOP NOW!!! I just CAN'T... ::FRANTIC....WHERE'S ALISSA'S BOOK!!! :::
...O.K.,,, I'm better now... I'm back to me... I'll be alright....
...pray for me!!!!

Renee! I hope you made it out OK!! LOL -- that hubby of your should be smacked with a zucchini noodle!
RAW life continues on!!!
Lucy, You're So right!!! I knew it when I smelled it!!!
GoingToRaw, thank you so much for your support and encouragement!!! I am SOOOO HAPPY TO SAY:
Eva, LOL!!!! Girl, you crack me up!!!! Got a MENTAL PICTURE OF THAT!!! LOVE IT!!!
I HAVE DEFEATED THE SAD :::MONSTER::: TONIGHT!!!!!
Here's what I DID eat (I know you guys are probably tired of seeing this, but here it is...):
I still had some of Alissa's Marinara Sauce left over, so I made some Zucchini Pasta. I also had some Not Tuna Pate left, so I put that with it and added a couple of pieces of a Marinated Mushroom that I didn't finish yesterday. Along with that, I made a Spinach Green Smoothie. And, let me tell you...it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!!!!! More DELICIOUS than EVER BEFORE!!!!
I had to call in "reinforcements"!!! I called my BFF's and they talked me through my "moment"... I also looked back at this blog and reminded myself of how far I've come. If I would have eaten that SAD food, it would have torn my stomache up and I would have been so disappointed with myself. RAW is the BEST THING that has happened to me. I ****REFUSE**** TO GIVE UP!!! Moments will come, and moments will go. But, I thank God for finding RAW and I will not give in to weak moments, with His help!!!
Of course, I had to wait until the smell cleared before I went downstairs (o.k., yea, I'm a "wimp"!!!! ), but I think my problem was that I didn't eat enough today. All I had was basically Cerael and Fruit this morning. Next time, even though I may not be "hungry", I will make a Smoothie and not leave myself high and dry!!!
Thanks for the prayers!!! They ALWAYS help!!!

WEEK 7 Day 49...
Well, I thought I was getting over this Flu buggg, but I'm still really "dizzy" and Congested. Doing what I can to take care of myself today... My daughter got it too, so we are taking a "sick" day off from Homeschool and resting.
I have been eating Fruit and Green Smoothies o.k. today... I did have a light Salad for lunch, but I feel "queezy", so I'm gonna lay back down and get some more rest. I'm just so glad my SAD moment passed and I'm glad I'm still RAW and didn't give in to it, even though I'm not in the mood to eat anything right now.
So, I'll check in with you guys tomorrow. Just gonna take it easy today...probably have another Smoothie later...
I was browsing through and saw this picture. OMG! this looks so great. Just because u posted this, I am Most definitely making this ASAP (especially because this reminds me the lasagna my mom used to make ). Best of luck with your raw style And hope You will reach your goal weight soon !!!
Feel better Renee....sorry u r down n out. It will pass .
Hey gurl! you will go thru phases of nothing seems appealing, not hungry, etc. THAT IS WHEN YOU GOTTA JUST CHILL AND LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.
sorry didnt mean to yell lol I am on my phone.
I sure hope you get feeling better real soon!
Well, I've been out of pocket for more than a week, so it's good to catch up with you, Renee. Sorry you've been sick. Kinda goes with your job territory, doesn't it? And congrats for not giving in to the SAD temptation!
Had Sunday brunch at Karyn's Raw in Chicago. Great food, but I learned something....... I don't do well with a lot of the "heavy" dehydrated things. At home I eat a small portion and that satisfies me, but of course at Karyn's I had to try everything! Loved the Hawaiian pizza, and wish I knew how they did it. I'm not good at analyzing food, so I probably can't duplicate it. Was very surprised at how small the cafe is. Maybe 20 seats.
Looking forward to some more of your great pics.
Keep up the great inspiration for all of us!
