All my recovering sugar addicts out there know what I’m going through. My head hurts. Not with a typical, throb. I wouldn’t call it a headache. It feels more like pressure. It happened the last time I was 90% raw for a few days and it will pass. Sugar is not my master. Sugar is not to blame. If I want to change, I have the power to change and I’m claiming that power now.
Since Monday I’ve been 90-100% raw each day and exercised 30 min each day. I’m down 2 pounds over this period. I feel like this is the place, the moment, the feeling, the place in time where my paradigm shifts. I’m changing.
I made nut meat delight last night with soaked walnuts, red onion, and celery all blended in a blender. Then I seasoned it with cilantro, cummin, Lowery’s, and pepper. I put the blend in romaine leaves and ate it lettuce wrap style. YUMMY!
I’ve been going through cravings. I haven’t had much of an appetite in the evenings. All I want after work is some juice or soda and microwaved butter popcorn. Sigh. I’m eating really well during the day so I’m sure that’s part of the issue. I think it’s more so rebellion. You know how little kids act when you tell them they can’t have something. They pout. They resist. I think that somewhere in my subconscious, there is a lil girl pouting because I’m not giving her any sugar. Well, just like a good parent, I’m training my body in the way that it should go. I’m giving myself discipline and direction. It’s an awesome gift to give, too. 🙂
I’ll have to make a green smoothie when I get home. Time to take time and visualize this healthy and happy body that will be birthed out of the changes I’m making in the NOW.
