It is amazing me how fast my body is starting to heal. This week I started running. Every time I would try a Standard American Diet it would leave me tired, lethargic, and unmotivated. Every time I would go on diets that were basically starving myself I was left feeling sad, grumpy, and lonely. I am eating an ABUNDANCE of fruits and veggies right now. I am not counting my calories or worrying about when to stop eating. I eat when I am hungry and I stop when I am full. I am left feeling full of energy, happiness, and just feel confident. I have never been the type of girl to feel confident when I am not EXACTLY where I want to be weight wise. These past 9 days I have been feeling a confidence in a way that is hard to explain. I am not the weight I want to be yet, but it’s more then just that now. Eating raw is teaching me that beauty really comes from within, to stop stressing when it comes to the scale or what the TV and magazines are telling me I should look like. I feel full of love right now. Not only for myself but for others as well. I am learning to look at life in a much more positive way, and this has only been for 9 days! I can’t wait to see how I feel after 30.
Day 7,8, and 9- I started feeling a lot better. I had a lot of energy, I was getting stuff done. I felt great. THEN…. I drank some raw vegan organic wine. Just one glass. Not even a full one. I woke up the next morning with a pretty bad headache but not unbearable. I took Advil without even thinking. I made lunch (orange juice 32 oz). When I sat on the couch my vision got really blurry and I got so hot I immediately started sweating! Then my vision started turning black and I knew I was about to faint… I ran to the bathroom and that’s when I got really sick and started vomiting. I had no idea what it could have been. Then my boyfriend mentioned I took Advil! I was like DUH!? I can’t be taking that! I am cleaning my body out! I don’t want to put crap in it. I felt better right away and continued the night like usual! So lesson learned! DO NOT take Advil or anything while on a raw vegan diet. Let your body heal itself. Other then that I have never felt better. (: I am running 30-45 minutes now non stop and feel great afterwards! Looking forward to the days to come.
REMEMBER: It takes 21 days to start a habit. Give it at least 21 days if you try this and see how your life turns around physically, mentally, and spiritually!
