Raw Reset Day 3/5 – Sliced finger! Ouch!

Alright guys… this is gonna be a quick one. It’s hard to type with one of my fingers bandaged up. Earlier today I was making brownies for my husband and managed to slice off some of my finger nail AND the skin under it. There was so much blood and I completely lost my appetite. Thankfully I was able to stop the bleeding but it seemed like it took forever to do so.

It doesn’t look too appetizing but these are made with avocado and have a little less sugar in them than traditional brownies. I will have to share the recipe with you guys soon! I of course did not partake but if there are any left I might have to try one on the weekend lol

With that being said…here are my eats for today.

2 large kiwis, over a cup of blueberries and 2 large clementines
Raw pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
Protein shake with sunwarrior plant based mocha protein, 2 frozen bananas, almond milk, cacao powder, 2 dates, water, ice
Pint of blackberries
2 very large apples with almond butter

No big salad bowl as like I said I lost my appetite due to seeing so much blood. I am such a big baby when it comes to these things! Brent sliced up two extra large apples and served with a big scoop of almond butter for additional fat and protein.

Besides the sliced finger I am feeling good!! See ya tomorrow.

p.s no walk today as it has been pouring all day – boo!!!

Tis the season…for a new challenge?

Happy Sunday everyone!

I have felt like I have just been coasting along lately and needing something to challenge myself with. I am proud of my accomplishments thus far but still have a long ways to go. I have also been plateaued at 225 which tells me my body is ready for new things to shake it up a little!

I am always wanting to experience and learn new things that will ultimately help me to feel like my best self as well as continuing my healing and weightloss goals.

The holiday season is an interesting one – as fun as everything is…it’s also filled with temptation and I find myself slipping into old ways, indulging in one to many treats (even IF they are dairy free or plant based, vegan etc.)

It always has been and always will be a challenge for the ex binge eater in me to ignore the calls and that little voice I hear in my head to indulge, indulge and indulge again and then to feel bad about it. I don’t wish to do either …binge eat…or feel bad about it. I also don’t want to over indulge in the foods that make my system feel bad (dairy, meat, eggs, too many processed foods). I’d rather continue to nourish myself with whole, plant foods and stick to the day to day routines that agree with my body and emotions. Although I’m thankful so many alternatives are on the market today so that we can in fact have a treat every once and again. I cannot be indulging every day over the course of two months which I find so many people do throughout the holidays? Just an observation, mind you…

For me, consistency, a positive mindset and keeping focused on good whole foods has been the corner stone since day one of this journey and I can’t lose sight of that. I will continue to do what works for me and my body.

Therefore…

I have put together 3 new challenges to see me through to the end of January. The holiday months is a great time to flip the switch and to dive in to keep the motivation high. This is my Raw Food Reset!!

I first will start with an easy peasy 5 day raw food challenge to finish off November, starting tomorrow, November 25.

Near the beginning of December I will see through a 10 day raw food challenge from December 2 to December 11th . Which will semi prepare me for January (after new years/new years day) when I will take part in The Medical Medium 28 day raw food healing program.

As you can see, there are lots of gaps and days in between these challenges to still allow for the occasional (key word) seasonal treats and my fair share of cooked potato and other cooked plant based foods which I love so much 🤣✌️ 

I have chosen raw food challenges because I seemed to feel my best when I was taking part in the Medical Medium 3.6.9 liver cleanse which was also also mostly raw foods. I want to experience more of those feelings and see how my body is able to heal while doing so.

If anyone wants to join in and support one another through any of these times let me know! I will of course be documenting all of it on various social media platforms and right here on the blog much to the dismay of some, I’m sure 😉
