Day 5

Greetings from Day 5! I’m actually doing a juice fast. I thought it would be so much easier but I’m having a really hard time drinking juice. I might just finish up the fruits and veggies I have now and then switch to water. I’m actually only doing 10 days right now because I want to water fast through Lent. 45 days…yikes. But I’m going to Borders tonight to look for a good book or two to help me through it spiritually. I love the concept of fasting through Lent and breaking the fast the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.

Physically I’m good. On nights 1, 2, and 3 I had bad headaches at night and when I sat and stood too fast. I feel like I’m coming off of my food addiction slowly but surely. I’ll only have 2 weeks to eat before my Lenten fast which isn’t enough time to go back to pizza and burgers daily coming off of a 10 day fast. I feel clear-headed. I don’t need anywhere near as much sleep as I did last week.

I'm Late

I actually did this last August and it’s been rough. I kinda get into the swing of it and then I don’t and then I do and then I don’t again. I’m pretty sure next semester I’ll be working full-time and going to school part-time. It’s what’s best for me.

Here I am...

It’s been a year now I think and I think I’ve lost 40 something pounds, but we don’t worry about things like that. I finally have the courage to do it. I am going to work towards a raw/vegan lifestyle. I’m going to be successful this time because I’m not going to put my body into total shock and make myself feel deprived.
I went to the store yesterday and I didn’t stock up. I bought about $20 dollars or so worth of stuff. This is about how much I spend on pizza twice per week. The goal is to TRANSITION into 100% raw/vegan. I’m not giving myself a timeline because it’s simply unneccessary. Last year I added salad twice per day to what I already ate. This is salad with ranch dressing, full fat. I lost weight just because I was adding raw fruits and vegetables to my diet. It’s working this way because eating food that isn’t raw isn’t a failure. Its about getting lots of good raw fruits and veggies into my body. It’s about acquiring new tastes ( I hate tomatoes, but I’m on a mission to eat them daily) and no longer needed the old ones.
