I just AM raw.

February 22, 2011

Day 32 of 100% Raw!!

I'm in a good place.

I feel at peace.

No struggle, no remorse. No temptations, no resentment. Not missing cooked food.

I just AM raw.

I am grateful to have all the foods I want to eat.

I don't crave anything. I even forget to eat.

I don't overeat or binge anymore.

My body is satisfied.

I know that God has blessed me. He has helped my weakness become my strength.

I want to be the one who heals from Lichen Sclerosis and can tell the world,

"I healed myself with raw foods!"

"I did it! And so can you!"

I pray everyday for this.

I am so grateful.

It's 18 day's of 100% Rawsomefabulousamazingness!!!!

I keep telling myself, "REMEMBER. REMEMBER. REMEMBER! Remember how you feel RIGHT NOW!"

I feel terrific! I wake up feeling awake. I can stay on my feet with my kids after school and be "WITH" them. Normally, I'm so tired by this time of day that I do the "bare minimums" with my family. And I hurry up so that I can sit or lay down before dinner. And then after dinner, it was the same thing. Hurry to get through with the "have to's" so I can get to bed. I mean. It sounds terrible. But, in telling the truth. I was always "dragging". And ornery too....Although, I would fight against my body all the time, thinking it was just the "natural man" I was fighting against. It seemed so hard to "choose the right" when it came to my feelings.

I am going to clarify right here, & right now, how much WHAT we eat affects HOW we feel physically AND emotionally!

I keep reminding my self, over, and over, and over to REMEMBER THIS MOMENT! And then I remember how I felt when I was cooked. There is NO COMPARISON!!

I'm just raw and that's it.

February 3, 2011

Yesterday, after I taught my exercise class I came home feeling a little down. My appetite was kind of gone and I just wanted to rest. I rested most of the day except to care for my children and prepare meals.
I figure it must be detox. I had a headache come on right before bedtime too.

Emotions are close to the surface....always has been another sign of detox for me. The emotions start coming up. I also had a bit of temptation to eat cooked foods, which is common for me when the emotions come up. But I took deep breaths. Told myself that it was just part of the detox and I reminded myself what eating those foods would feel like and do to me. AND, how hard it is to come back. AND, how tired I am of going on and off of raw.
I'm raw now and that's it.

I took a little bit of time to prepare some bread, flax crackers, sweet potato "fries" and dried apples. I'll post a picture and some others of a delicious salad and a raw cereal.

So. I'm just raw. And that's it.
