Well I went to bed last night sure that I would be sick as a dog today, but I wasn't at all. I had energy all day, and determined that it is some respiratory allergy, because the only time I sneezed and felt bad was if I went outside. Now this is kind of a bummer. Usually, my fall allergies don't start until later. But what it means is, I can't walk or do much outside until after the first hard frost. Who knows, if I stick to eating raw, maybe someday these allergies will be more manageable.
I felt so good physically all day. It's like a happiness just to be in my body.... even while sneezing and sniffling. My mental and emotional state, however, are not quite as good. I have alot of issues cranking over and over in my head -- anger, frustration. But when I separate myself from them and look around, life is okay right now.
Like yesterday, I had a strong pull to quit this challenge. I craved that old starchy cooked dinner really really bad. But I didn't cave. I had no overt fats today and NO SALT!
I did not exercise because whether this was a virus or allergy, I just didn't feel it was good to push my body too much. However, I did end up doing about two hours of some heavy duty house cleaning and worked up a sweat.
