30 Bananas a Day!

I Was A Bad, Bad Girl and I'm Paying For IT!!!!! [Insert Smiley Face Here]

Now, look what I went and did.  After two good weeks of an almost 80/10/10 diet, I started eating cooked food.  

It was all psychological.  Thats my synopsis anyway.  The meals tasted okay.  I even stayed vegan until yesterday.  After eating the meat.  I was like OMG!  I'm back on the Banana boat first thing in the morning.

MAY ALL THE NEWBIES OUT THERE LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!!!!

Let me tell you how I feel at the moment that I am writing this post...

1. I have gas like crazy.  It smells really, really bad.

2. My stomach still hurts a bit.  That may be the gas, but it wasn't right after ever cooked meal and that's just one week off the diet, after being on just two weeks.

3. My throat feel like I've had the worst cough ever.  But I just started coughing this morning.  I've had this feeling for two days.  

4. I have this nasty oily, plaquey feeling in my mouth that won't quit.  I bet my breath stank.  I can't wait for my turn in the bathroom so I can get some baking soda in my mouth. (Don't worry, I don't use the soda all the time.)

5. I like the the fruit a whole lot better.  I didn't miss the cooked food.  Each meal didn't taste all that great and it was ugh!  

At first I just didn't have any fruits and veggies (well, not enough to sustain 2500 cals a day.)  Then when I did get some fruits, nothing was ripe.  So, I told myself its okay to eat this stuff.  But I just got caught in a trap.  I had my last cooked meal last night.  

I've had 6 bananas so far this morning and will have four more in a few minutes.  I'm going to eat 30 bananas today to get myself back on task.  I'll probably have 30 bananas tomorrow to.  Gotta go shopping.  Hope I find some spotted ones.

I'm not mad at myself.  But I have that drab face up there, because I'm mad stanky gassy.  That's just not SEXY!  

More Love...

I made the decision to go vegetarian about 3 years ago. I made that decision because I love animals, and I found it abhorrent how they are treated in slaughter houses. I've been able to keep my willpower strong, initially by watching PETA and other animal videos (like happy tea cup pigs on youtube). Seasoned chicken or fish and chips can still smell good, but I don't see it as food anymore. After 3 years, meat isn't a temptation at all. My best advice is to stay strong and watch some animal welfare videos :)

@Amelia.  Thanks so much.  It is a good reminder.  I have repeated this same slip-up multiple times during this last three weeks.  It's okay though.  I'm going to stick with it and take more control of  my own diet.  Most of my ail, is that I've had my mom shopping for me.  She doesn't really understand the diet or my needs and sometimes she won't pick up what I ask her for, because she thinks I have enough already.  So, next month I'm doing all of my own shopping.

@Leevonne - Thanks.  You're so lovely.

@jaime - I have plenty of rice and stuff.  I was just too lazy to utilize it.  I'm going to start fixing up a batch and putting it in the fridge when I know hard times are coming.  But hard times shouldn't come anymore since I am going to be taking control of my own shopping.

Love and smiley faces back at ya, Lauren.  It happens, and good can come of it.  How would we ever truly appreciate beauty without ugliness?  Recognize good without experiencing bad?  Understand what it is to be happy without feeling sad now and again?  80/10/10 is the first change I've ever made that, when I went back to the ugly/bad/sad, I actually wanted to return to the beautiful/good/happy.  A slip-up is just a reminder and reinforcement.  Have a wonderful HCRV day!
