For me, this raw food journey has not really been about weight loss. It has been more about feeling good, finding happiness and overcoming my depression. I think I have achieved that, although it is not actually a destination! I still have to work at it constantly and I don´t always do the work I need to do, and then I feel the difference.
Until now, I have been eating basically whatever I want to – as long as it is raw. That has meant lots and lots of nuts, nut butters, dates, avocados and raw chocolates. Not surprisingly, I have not lost much weight at all. So, I am ready to step up my plan. I have decided that the number one priority is to get more active. In addition to my once a week yoga class, I want to jog a little every day and do a yoga video podcast. I think that is doable and not getting all crazy about it! 🙂
This week, I am going to focus on more cleansing, low-fat foods. I´m doing a smoothie day today. All blended foods to get me going and over the hump. So far today, I have had a pear/orange/strawberry/spinach smoothie with added nettle, mallow and spirulina powders and a sprinkling of bee pollen. I have also done my first little jogging session with the dogs and an upper body strength Yogamazing video podcast. It looks like I am on track.
I also decided to join the new RawFu challenge to keep me accountable and motivated. Spring is in full force, I have already done a massive clean out in my house so I think my body is ready for it too.
It would also be extra awesome if I could find the money somehow for a colonic in the next 100 days. But we´ll see!
