Today I ate bananas for breakfast and lunch. Yum!
I have yet to eat dinner. I am sick. I had to have a CT last week and a bunch of blood tests this week, because I have some mystery sickness. Im doubled over in abdominal pain and have servere joint pain.
I just gasped in the bathroom when I saw the color of my bowel movement. Calm down. Everybody poops. It just didn't occur to me that the color of my bm would be so light after eating only bananas today. I won't say how many bananas I had, because I know its not enough. I am having a hard time eating anything, so I am doing what I can.
I went gluten-free and vegeterrian in 2007. I slowly began eating meat in 2011 to recent because I was serrverly vitamin D deficient, and always craving red meat (don't judge). Fortunately for this lifestyle... I just found out I am allergic to beef. How about that! My PCP said it is a rare allergy, and that's what I have found in my research.
I knew I wanted to go raw again as soon as I started feeling sick. I dabbled with a raw diet in 2009 when I had an amazing garden. I could afford it when I grew half of the produce myself. Now I live in the city, so I am dependent on grocery stores and farmers markets.
I love running, but don't have the energy. I am definitely not healthy enough yet. I have gained 20 lbs since April 2012. When I am in average running shape (on a vegeterrian high fat diet) I am 135 or so and a US size 6-8 (S/M). Now I am at 176 lbs and a US size 10-12(M/L). I mention this for reference, not because size is particularly important. It matters, but health is far more important. I can't beat myself up about it. I am doing all that I can with what I have now. Time for a change, eh?! Doing it cautiously because I too have dealt with eating disorders in the past.
Happy voting. Hope majority vote serves us well. It's always a gamble and a weigh of pros and cons. It is never simply black and white. No pun intended. Go Obama! Doing amazing things for women's health care. Let's hope healthcare reform is a success. Just saying! Debated with my Romney supporting father already tonight... I hope he isn't right when it comes to he future of the United States.
