So once again I am trying to commit fully to 801010 (I have been dabbling with this since Jan). Recently I have been eating a "high raw" diet, mostly vegan. With the occasional dairy product thrown in there. I have a hard time allowing myself to consume any cooked foods, because it just seems like a slippery slope. I'd rather just cut it out for the time being. I can say since the beginning of the year I have lost 5 pounds, eliminated any binge type behaviors, stopped drinking pop (haaaaaaaate the taste of diet dr. pepper), and picked up yoga!
I am trying really hard to stick it out for the health of those around me. My Dad is willing to try the diet/lifestyle, and I have sent him a copy of 801010. My husband is thinking of becoming a vegetarian too. But I need to be a good role model! I have also decided to cut the coffee, because I found out it may contain trace acrylimides (spelling?) which is a toxic byproduct of certain cooked foods! YUCK! I have been drinking a serving of green tea over the last two days, but will nix that too.
I am back in NC with my husband, and he will be on vacation next week. I am looking forward to some quality family time! Yesterday, I picked up a bunch of personal watermelons from whole foods. I have never had organic melon --- so I am too excited to try them. They cost about 4.99 each, and I got a discount because I bought a lot. I will be eating watermelons all day long! I have some frozen bananas if I want to enjoy a smoothie. For dinner, I will be keeping it plain with a just a bed of romaine, chopped tomatoes, and the juice of a lemon. I also have assorted seeds/nuts if I want to jazz it up. I hope to continue eating melons and greens for the rest of the season. I truly could just eat watermelons all year long, and be totally happy. I feel so good on them!
I received my vitashine vitamin D spray in the mail yesterday, because I am deficient (have been for quite some time!). My B12 levels are around 700ish (I was vegetarian for a long time), and I will start to supplement that too, in about a month.
In other areas of my life --- I am getting ready to start back at work. My husband and I have done a lot of spring cleaning and will be splitting the house duties. We have been working on making time to connect as a family too. Which is great! I am also working on cleaning up my son's diet by eliminating fast food, meat, and any processed products. He typically eats oatmeal for breakfast, and I am switching him to fresh fruit and organic oatmeal. He already eats a large portion of fruit with most of his meals.
Thanks for reading/support!
