Need some encouragement today

21 Nov

Had a little bit of a rough day on the raw diet.  Today was our teacher work day (last day of the trimester with no students) and we always have a huge potluck breakfast. 

The food was amazing! But guess what I ate?


No delicious stuffing, egg-cheese-potatoe casarol (I don’t know how to spell that), no yummy pumpkin stuff.  Just fruit salad.

But I was fine at work until I came home.  Now I want to eat everything.  Andrew is cooking dinner in the crock pot and it smells delicious.

(Confession: I had a piece of his cooked broccoli)

Next I am going to a bunco party that will also serve dinner.  See those carrots and green beans in my hand?  Thats what I will be taking with me.

Tell me I am doing this because being healthy is important.  Remind me that I am getting all the junk/toxins out of my body.  Whisper sweet nothings to me that say I have done this for 5 days already and I wouldn’t want to start over.  I’ve gotten this far.

Thanks for the encouragement.  I really appreciate it.

    Do you have a juicer? I used to get carrot-orange juice from Jamba, until I realized paying $6 for such a thing was ridiculous, and bought my own. A large glass of it is practically its own meal. Pineapple juice is also great. Much smoother, and for some reason, less tart than bought pineapple juice.

    Anyways, good luck! Stay strong!!
