Day 10: Raw Food Challenge

So happy to be in the double digits of this challenge.  Day 10 under my belt on 10/10/10!!!!  A humungous shout out to my husband for reminding me as I walked out the door to go to my brothers and then to the Redskins game that I needed to take something to eat with me.  Boy did he save me!!!!  Grabbed an apple a banana and a small bag of raw almonds....Thank you hubby!!!

This morning was pretty rushed,  I didn't have my smoothie. As I mentioned above I went to my brothers pretty early today.  Had my cousins staying with me so we were all rushing to get ready.  My brother was having a cookout before we all went to the 1:00 Redskins game.  Talk about food...there were ribs, chicken, hamburgers, hotdogs and many side dishes, none of which were raw.  I munched on my banana as everyone chowed down on the aforementioned food.  I would be totally lying if I said that I was not tempted.  My brother makes the best ribs.  But I passed on all of it.

At the game I could smell the food in the air and it smelled wonderful.  Hot dogs, fries, nachos, pizza, etc...
Again I resisted.  Ate my bag of almonds and an apple.  My cousin had the nerve to ask for a few almonds...and I gave him a few...haha!

After the game we all went back to my brother and again everyone was chowing down on all the I had a banana and could not wait to get home to eat my raw food that I had in the refrigerator.

Another successful day for me.  I am feeling great.  I have lost weight, not sure how much because I do not own a scale.  I just know that I am feeling better than I have in a while...also walked about 3 miles today and I did not tire!  The temptation is still there and I don't know that it ever goes away, all I know is that I am loving the way that I feel and that is much better than giving in to any temptation.
Day 10 done 20 days to go!!!!!
