....and still alive! Barely! Ugh. Today was NOT fun. I have to admit that doing something like this would be a lot easier if I had a more stable life. However, that is why I'm doing this-if I can, than anybody can! I find that when I eat low fast raw food meals, I don't have time to catch up at the end of the day all of my needed calories and fat...so I have to eat processed food because it is quicker. It's not really that raw is tough to do, I just need to plan things a little better. I'm still having trouble making sure I don't go overboard with raw food recipes with lots of fat, and not going under with too many low-fat recipes. It gets easier, right? RIGHT? ugh. I did notice at the gym that I was going really fast on the treadmill AFTER working out. Before it was just on my pre-work out warm up stepper that I had more energy. Now I am noticing more energy afterwards. My skin looks good without any makeup now, my lips are actually fuller (I'm more hydrated now from all the fruits and veggies maybe?) and my skin has a rosey glow (must be all the tomatoes?!) I haven't lost much weight, but than again, I'm not 100% raw right now either. I had a pear and some leftover raw lasagna and after working out made a smoothie of tons of blueberries, strawberries, and a banana. Than I made Cucado Soup and a sunshine carrot salad. And then for dinner I had a regular meal. I picked easy recipes today because I had to stay in a hotel, and it was a crazy day. My house is pretty much not a place I can stay at right now. I don't really want to talk about it, but let's just say I'm really proud of myself for managing to stay mostly raw today since it was horrible! No pics, as the food wasn't really exciting to blog about! The good news I didn't have to get a lot at Krogers today, as I had most of the ingredients already.
