Okay today I had a lot of studying to do, I got on with a fair bit, but it really was a struggle. Finding I am uninterested in the current module..which is making it hard to get motivated!! My family have helped me loads with affording this course, so really must do some work!!Really going to have to force myself to study this week. Be glad when this part is done in September!! ..think am going to set a schedule..no more watching soaps on tele..or tidying up as a diversion!! lol
Spent some time working out all afternoon, running, cross trainer, weights. Everything really!!! I try to train each day, weights as well as cardio. I also walk everyday 5-6 miles, isn't much but, its something!!
Tomorrow will get up early to train in the morning outdoors since the weather is so nice. Rare to see over 20 here, so going to make the most of the warm weather!!
Haven't had much of an appetite today, had some avocado and olives. Kept hydrated with lots of water, sparkling and plain. Will have a fruit meal later if I am hungry. Got a lot on my mind at the moment which always kills my appetite dead!!
Anyways feeling good after a week back on 8-1-1, feeling awake, no low feelings or depressive thoughts. Able to cope better with what life is throwing at me in general. Also finding my abs are staying out, not getting covered in fat..which was a worry for me!! Lots of training should keep any weight gain at bay. Definitely keeping an eye on things, want to really get shredded!!
Guess my main reason for going back to cooked was I was so unhappy with my weight, was sick of being overweight, so I felt I had to do something about it. I think now I am down where I am happy weight wise I can figure out a way to eat optimally and keep at the size I want! Maybe vain, but it was making me so down, for me it wasn't worth continuing and being unhappy and not wanting to go out or socialise because of my appearance. Anyways.. 8-1-1 rawks...so happy to be back on the fruity trail!!
Asked for some hemp protein for my bday so lets hope the birthday fairy delivers!! lol Also asked for Thrive diet, interested in reading it.. but not really interested in chomping on tofu or buying pricey products/supplements. Really do believe fresh is best!! not out of a jar!! I do like Nutiva Hemp products though, so going to be adding those in.
Will take some photographs of my post workout munchies tomorrow, sure they will be colour full and vibrant!!
To my horror my celery and Chinese cabbage were rotten this morning, have written to the delivery company.. put me off using them again.
Think I will going back to buying direct from fruit wholesalers, they deliver free over £40 or you can go collect the produce. The savings are just amazing. Thinking of getting some melons..I am feeling drawn to them at the moment, thinking maybe I might do mono melon for a bit. Sounds really good to me right now, lots of different kinds available.. the organic man round the corner has had some lovely ones in, think I may go get some in the week.
Anyways, going to have a relaxed evening, tomorrow more training and rest..

Going to take a more moderate go this time, none of the gurus, superfoods, obsession.. just vibrant health.. high raw.. and the body I aspire to!!
GI2MR .. for me changed the whole scene.. shook it up but also put in so many divisions and..promoted some guru worship that just isn't healthy for anyone IMO!!!
I went back to being lacto-ova vegetarian for a year, which I have been for nearly 12 years now. Low carb.. I wanted to loose some weight, which I have done, go I guess now is figuring out how to get a balance between keeping the body..and eating what I want..lots of raw fruit..and produce!!
I guess after a year I have gained some perspective, that the whole raw thing...can get to religion like..and you have to take it for what it is..and go with what is right for YOU personally.
Anyways, I am back, will be logging my food and sharing thoughts... a new me..a new way of eating..
