I have started a mentoring program with Freelea and am posting my commitment to my new life and new body here for the next 30 days. I have been high raw for the passed 3 years but have struggled many times but this last time has been the worst. In the last three months I have gone back to drinking coffee, eating cooked animal products and other processed foods. Emotionally I have had life changing stresses that I feel have contributed to this dramatic turn in the way I eat....maybe I am making excuses.
I decided that I was not happy with how my body was looking but not only that, my body was rejecting what I was putting in my mouth. I had bloating, mucus, sore muscles, headaches etc. I had put on nearly 5kg's and have not been feeling at my peak.
Yesterday was Day 1 and this is what transpired.
Woke early about 4am and dozed for a while. Got up at 7.00am and went for a 25 minute easy jog (I had a glass of water before headig out)
Got back and had 500ml of water, then cleaned the house for about 1 hour then had 1 x rockmelon smoothie.
Grazed through the day as I was busy working. I had 2 x kiwi fruit, 1x apple, 2 slices of pineapple, some strawberries. (not much really to eat)
By dinner time I was starving, really craving something savoury, (salt and fat). Made spiralised zucchini pasta on some spinach topped with chopped tomatoes, celery, capsicum and mushrooms.
Water : about 1.2 litres and has 3 cups of hearbal tea.
Not enough water and food today I Know, need to be a bit more prepared.
My mood was quite angry today. I was cooking dinner for the rest of the family and was being a real "bitch" to my hubby. I explained to him that detox was starting to happen...nothing personal.
I was also having flu like syptoms, sore throat..not sure if it was what the rest of the family was having though and of course mucus.
That is all I have to report for today.
