Well, it's still day one. I havn't cheated. I've had to smell the lunch I made for my family and that was very hard. I am trying to observe and disown my craving for real food. I've done a lot of study about addiction and from what I understand, cravings come in waves of 5 minutes. So I will have to ride it out 5 minutes at a time I suppose. I am a big caffeine drinker, sometimes two 2liters a day, so my headache right now is unbelievable and will be for probably another 10 days or so. Well, maybe not that long, since I AM detoxing. I quit caffeine with my last pregnancy and that's how long it took, 10 days, for the headache to subside.
Another obstacle I face is my ulcers. My stomache is growling and burning right now. I would love nothing more than to eat something to settle it, but it will be alright I'm sure. My emotions seem to have me on a roller coaster and I am just trying to ride it out. I feel so many things right now, which for me, isn't out of the ordinary. Remember, I have ADD. My mind is running wildly with the idea that it isn't fair that I have to go to this extreme to feel better. I have to tell myself that I am lucky that I am smart and willing and unafraid . Some people have the same problems I have and never branch out enough to experience wellness and it makes me soooo sad.
My intention is not for you to listen to my bellyaching, but I want you to see that you can do this too, no matter what. Many people have symptoms much worse than I will ever have, and still press on. I am thinking now of the poor soul with cancer who is trying a raw food diet for the first time to help cure their disease. It is a sad thought, but is also bringing me tears of happiness at the same time, because I am suddenly grateful for my state of health. Now with my fresh outlook, I will instead embrace the headache and tummy ache and know without a doubt, it could be soooo much worse.......... till we meet again!
Remember my loves, the best is yet to come....If only we could all see into the future........we would either see our progress or scare ourselves into making some!
