- Veggielicious is detoxing. She’s trying stay on the Eat to Live bandwagon, but seems to be having a difficult time doing it:
I had a smoothie at 9am and it's 11am and I'm craving something (it's more of a detox thing than real hunger). I'm also feeling pretty tired- laying down on the couch sounds great-- but I'm at work. I sort of want Starbucks but I don't want to have to keep going through this detox over and over so I'm going to try and stay away. I'll probably snack on some of my lunch (raw baby carrots, snap peas and steamed asparagus with homemade hummus and an apple) soon to avoid that. I'm stressed but I'm trying not to make my food about that. I need to step up my game at work and at school before I get myself into a serious pickle. So on that note, I need to get back to work!
So I'll be training pretty much every day in order to get into shape! Speaking of getting into shape, I've lost 8lbs following a modified version of Eat To Live. I really admire the E2Lers who gave up sugar. I've tried and tried and I don't want to say I can't but it's so hard. But I have been consuming a lot less of it, which I am extremely proud of myself for. I've never really gave cooking the time of day, but when I went vegan I knew I needed to cook. Of course I would primarily cook sweets. Now that's changed. I still make sweets, but very rarely and usually for someone else (doesn't mean I won't eat any though :D). I've upped my veggie intake so I'm eating them at every meal, even for breakfast!! I'll usually eat a salad for breakfast now.
Hubby, the economist, thought that if we followed Eat to Live, we would be spending a lot of money on food (and our food budget is currently a big source of contention). So, I set off to determine how much it would cost the average American to follow Eat to Live.
i can't believe i've made it almost 3 weeks already this is a miracle honestly. i wanted to make it this far when i first started it up again, but i didn't have much faith in myself...i was taking it one moment at a time, now i'm getting more comfortable with being able to not eat stuff, because i have my goal in mind. right now there's apple pie on the counter, i don't even want any! how is that possible!?! it's amazing.
am i cured already from my unhealthy habits? my energy is amazingly high. i hardly feel tired anymore...i wake up refreshed.. it's madness.. complete and utter madness..
They actually remind of the raw bars I purchased once at Natural Zing. I'll probably make them on a regular basis. I found that eating one while I was on the bus going home prevented me from being ravenous when I got home, which is a good thing.
