Going to be honest, I've been struggling (motivation-wise) with my LFRV diet.
I had all the motivation in the world back in April of this year. I still can't believe I went a whole month going raw. I believe my motivation back then was better because I had my friends Abraham (who went cold turkey vegan at the beginning of the year) and Karen (a woman I met on a social website) who was around to talk to and show me some great recipes. Abraham unfortunately moved up North for college this Fall, and I lost contact with Karen. They were my real driving force with keeping tabs on me.
Right now, I'm back in the game all by myself.
I work in the mainstream restaurant industry, and I hate how I am constantly tempted every single day when I'm in the kitchen. I further hate how indirectly I'm supporting the meat industry. I wasn't vegan or even raw when I first started working there three years ago, so my perception on everything changed so much over time, and even though the money is great... morally, I feel wrong every single day since adapting to my new health-style.
Maybe this is all just a phase I'm going through at the moment. I do feel like I've been overworked, and Sundays truly are the only days out of the week where I can find my center and retreat away from the rest of the world to meditate and spend time alone with my thoughts. My mind has been very loud lately, and a little misguided, further tempting me into bad habits.
Maybe this is all just a phase, I'm hoping it passes by real soon.
