thinking about things that you usually try NOT to think about is completely exhausting.
answers to come on friday.
dizzy until then.
Fruit cups! Mid day snack. Yum. (Taken with Instagram)
my entire house smells like mushroom ravioli
i found a yoga studio near the “new” (holy shit we’ve been here five weeks) place… went tonight for the first time and i positively LOVED it. their class schedules aren’t SUPER convenient to mine, but i should be able to go two or three times a week.
i feel really good. i’ve been eating well… been eating more frequently, smaller meals/snacks… and i feel good.
i’m also seriously toying with the idea of a juice cleanse (or two) before the end of the year. am i crazy? possibly. but i’m okay with that.
huge show with victoria this coming saturday. it’s supposed to be THREE times the size of our last one. i’m beyond excited.
home in six days. i can’t wait.
which is the equivalent of torture for someone on a liquid fast (see: me).
i’ve had a headache on and off for most of this evening, but according to all of the research i’ve done, that means that what i’m doing is working. needless to say, it’s not the most fun thing i’ve experienced, but i really do want to give my body a fair shot at a fresh start of a healthy diet… and a detoxed body will help curb cravings, helping me to make better decisions.
two days down, one to go. unless tomorrow goes swimmingly, in which case i might hold on another day or two. i’ve already prepared some salads in anticipation for breaking my fast. haha.
also: i took two naps today. yeah. i said it. two.
after watching sick, fat, and nearly dead, i’ve decided to change my diet… and at some point in the near future, i’ll be doing a juice fast. i’ll be changing my eating habits, focusing on eating as close to just micronutrients (fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans) as humanly possible.
i’m using my “the awesome vegetarian“ tumblr to document things. feel free to follow me over there. xo.
my mom and i were just talking in the car about how i feel it’s really important to feed yourself with good, real, whole foods.
since she got her car a few years back, she’s put nothing but “high-test” gasoline in her car. i made mention of it and she said “yeah, because this is my only car. i need to take care of it.”
i returned with “you only have one body. and you can’t get a new one. you put more expensive gasoline in your car because you care about the way it runs. that’s the way you should treat your body. “
it’s true. yeah, it costs more to eat well, but you won’t have sludge in your engine. you run better. you feel better. this is your one body. your temple. stop filling it with what’s not going to work best for you. educate yourself. do your research. read your labels.
"so this is what putting science, and scientism, in charge of the American diet has gotten is: anxiety and confusion about even the most basic questions of food and health, and a steadily diminishing ability to enjoy one of the great pleasures of life without guilt or neurosis."
"That eating should be foremost about bodily health is a relatively new and, I think, destructive idea—destructive not just of the pleasure of eating, which would be bad enough, but paradoxically of our health as well. Indeed, no people on earth worry more about the health consequences of their food choices than we Americans do—and no people suffer from as many diet-related health problems."
