Well what do ya know...? I was up and at 'em today. I actually had nothing to report yesterday, because I did absolutely nothing. I was still feeling 'unplugged' and I just laid about. You know, there's a guilty/shame vibe that goes along with that. At least for me. There's also a feeling that something deeper is 'wrong', and what if it's not detox? That sort of thinking. That's the hypochondriac in me, rearin' it ugly head. I do know that the further I go into raw, the quieter that voice gets, and it's just a matter of time before that's the last thing on my mind. YAY something to look forward to. It hasn't been too bad or anything...just these vague musings I bat away like flies. Shoo, already!
But I had more energy today, and it's always easier for me to trust the process from that standpoint. I enjoyed my green lemonade, though not until later in the day. In the morning, I ate 2 bananas and exactly one date. I find them quite awful on their own. Even the lovely organic medjools. I love what they do to a dessert, but alone, they are too much. Too intense and not the right kind of sweetness. I guess I'm a chocolate girl and everything else sweet kinda pales. (Well, except Islander's shortbread. Dang, Girl, I found the recipe and was sooo tempted. The only thing that saved me was remembering that I don't have an oven.) Is there a raw shortbread? Methinks that would pale, too...but let's give my head a shake here, lots of raw sweeties to love...like, those brownies. Unparallelled!
