This is a much better feeling!

Eating under 2000 calories of unprocessed meat, veggies and fruit makes for a VERY good day... I woke up today after a perfect eating day yesterday feeling rested, energized, and happy.

Makes it easy to do the same thing today - because I want this feeling to continue!

I got all mixed up for a while, thinking that eating junky food and drinking alcohol was that pleasurable feeling I was looking for. It wasn't. I want *this* feeling, I want to chase this feeling - the feeling of a healthy, strong body that knows it can take on the world.

I got sick of indulgence this past weekend. It just happened, something just snapped mentally. I need a detox from all the rich food and alcohol (which I literally felt this weekend like I was being poisoned by!).

Today started with an egg/egg white scramble with vegetables, a dog walk and yoga. Tomorrow will start the same way :) It is easier to behave throughout the day when I start the day in a healthy manner.

I like having this shorter goal, trying for five days of sobriety and clean/moderate eating. It feels completely do-able. It isn't so generalized or so long term as my other goals (being fit for my wedding in September or just creating this perfectly healthy lifestyle). I need something shorter right now, something to focus on.

I can do five days.

And then I will work on the next five days :)

I will keep this blog updated honestly with my progress. I am excited to be successful with this five day plan, I like that feeling of pride of doing what I said I would do.

Namaste, have a beautiful day <3


  1. I hope you have great success this 5 days. You are right...the feeling you have now is worth chasing after. Great job and have a great week :)

  2. Great goals and you can do it! Have a wonderful week!

  3. I completely relate to what you are saying. This past week was not a good one for me--our entire house was sick and, when that happens, you just want the most comforting (that is junky) food there is. Last night, I was literally suffering a food hangover. Today, however, I decided that it changes...and I feel great!
