Wow thank-you offense74, CollegeB, jjaj2022!
And we're off for Day 1!
I woke up this morning to meditate and keep nodding off, so I think I may need to work on that.
Next I could smell the coffee brewing and I about caved in. Since I am a coffee addict, and am REALLY groggy in the AM this was very hard. I had seeped naturally caffinated tea overnight, and had that instead.....phew made it through.
I spent my day VERY tired and unable to fully wake up, but didn't have any other withdrawal symptoms. We have a Tropical Depression running through here all day and into tomorrow so the somber weather isn't helping. I am WAY, WAY, WAY, too sleepy to work out. I generally take Friday off so I'm not beating myself up for not doing so on Day 1.
I grazed all day, so far:
Carrots w/Raw dip
I am home now and drink a glass of organic wine while watching "Break Through" with Storm, Jingee and their beautiful family. It is quite motivational, and that's what I need.
The plan for dinner is Angel Hair Pasta Marinara (the pasta is spiralized yellow squash).
My spirit is really low today, so I hope things improve tomorrow. I know like an addict I must push through the first several days and keep telling myself "it gets better".
Oh and I should add, my youngest daughter has decided to join me for my Raw Challenge. She is already vegan and I put no pressure on her, so if she decides this is best for her I am with her. If she decides it's not, that's OK too.
We went to the Health Food Store to buy more fruits and I let her select anything she wanted. I felt really, really blessed to be able to afford the raw foods she wants, not just what was cheapest. In the long run though we will adjust to in season and more reasonable priced. On the way out the starter on my vehicle decided to not work. So DH had to come by in the Tropical Depression and lay down in the water to get us running (using two screw drivers we were able to get it started). So now I need a new starter, isn't it always something?? And Murphy's Law states "anything that can go wrong will and at the worst possible moment!"
