Thoughts: Eating only foods that are good for me. I never thought it was possible. I used to binge on junk food, for five years, and whenever I would gulp down a pile of chocolate or lollies, processed foods and takeaway I would think, "my body is not actually benifiting from any of this, I am not even benifiting from this, so why do I do it?". I was not being responsible for my health. Today I ate totally raw. My friend JD has inspired me, he is 50 years old and looks absolutely freaking amazing (no one believes that he is 50!) and he is going raw for 40 days. Raw foods are totally whole foods from the earth, and is at another level of health, instead of 'tampering' and cooking the foods. I feel very healthy and very clean today :)))) Clean...haha except my unwashed hair ;)
Challenges: Writing this blog after a series of 18 days with 6 hours sleep! My brain is foggy haaa so if this blog is all over the place that is why, it's a great challenge to get up early and go to bed late and have a full energy day and eat healthy earthy foods.
Triumphs: Before the Earth Diet I would be eating chocolate and lollies to keep me going. It's probably my first day ever of going entirely raw. I usually eat cooked foods. The conversation I now have with me and foods is that "I only need to eat foods that provide my body with energy and nutrition, keep it simple and less in best", and the conversation I had BEFORE the Earth Diet with me and foods was "I'm working an 18 hour day, I need to have chocolate and lollies to keep me going and the more I eat the better and more energy I will have", but now I get that the more crappy food I eat, the more energy my body uses for digesting it!
