Well, this is my first time blogging. This adventure that I am partaking in is definitely blog worthy. I am taking part in a 30 day Raw Food Challenge. For the most part I feel that I am a healthy eater. But for the last few years I have gotten so far off track that I really don't recognize myself when I look in the mirror. I am not happy with my weight or how I feel. So, I am taking part in this challenge to try and get myself back on track...Trying to find the me that I remember.
I am trying to take charge of my health and my life. Heart disease, high blood pressure both run in my family and I am determined to break that family curse for my life. Exercise is also a very important part of this challenge. I used to exercise daily and like my eating habits that has fallen off also. So, I will be exercising with this challenge to make it a part of my daily life also.
So basically I will be blogging for the next 30 days about this 30 day Raw Food Challenge, the difficulties that I encounter with this challenge and my progress.
This is the beginning of Day 3 of the challenge...I have spent the last 2 days visiting my god daughter at Penn State. Here, I am realizing that it is difficult when eating out at restaurants. Salad with olive oil and lemon is pretty much what's on the menu when eating out. For breakfast each morning I have been eating fresh fruit, and a large salad for lunch. That's it. Funny thing is, I have not been very hungry when dinner time rolls around but I make myself eat a salad. Also I have been drinking lots of water with lemons. Today we are leaving Penn State and I know once I'm home it will be easier to add different things to my menu.
I have to admit that I have not given up coffee and I had a couple of martinis this weekend...boo me!
Note to self...keep baby carrots and almonds in your purse.
