day 6 – something different for a change

Posted on September 6, 2012, by ,In daily live food blog 2 comments

So this is day 6 and I have to reiterate this is SO much easier than doing a juice fast! LOL

The day began well enough. I woke up hungry again, which is nice. I had 2 bananas and a mango and felt pretty darn full after that. I posted up a paper that I had written the night before and since the house was quiet, wrote another paper. I went to work and had my usual smoothie (which was delicious.) I gave some to Meg to try and she seemed to really like it. She said she wished she had a longer tongue to lick the sides and bottom of the cup! 🙂

I had to leave work early to pick up the kiddos. They were at an outing in the day. It was a long drive there and a long drive back. I took the highway to get there and absolutely hated it. Even though the views are beautiful, I just didn’t like it. I found myself having a mental tantrum. I realize how much our thoughts create our environment because no matter how pretty the day was, I was not happy because I told myself I don’t like to drive on the highways. Interesting.

I took the back roads to get home and felt way more relaxed. Then suddenly the day felt magical again. Isn’t that some shit?

Got home and it was time to close up shop. Went home and made dinner. We made a vegan pizza for the kids, loaded with tons of veggies. For us, we moistened some rice paper and filled with hail to the kale, fresh salsa and fresh guacomole. It was HEAVENLY! Seriously – whomever it was that created the recipe for guacamole was an absolute angel. So yummy. I felt so satisfied from this tasty meal.

I drank 2 liters of water today but I didn’t get to do much movement. But it was a good day. I watched What the Bleep do We Know? for my class. What a LONG film! OMG! Interestingly enough, they talk about intention and creating things out of our thoughts. How’s that for synchronicity? 🙂 I just figured that out on my car drive when I was thinking myself miserable! LOL

Anyway, I wish you a good night. I hope you had a great day today.

xoxo,
Linda

  • That’s interesting — I’m tagging that film to check out later. What were your experiences of driving on highways in the past? I notice that I love to drive when: 1. I am extremely familiar with the route, 2. Am not rushed, 3. Weather is good (and sometimes a 4th thing: when I am alone because I love singing in the car).

    I hate driving when the weather is bad or I am lost or unfamiliar with the route or rushing because in the past, all those situations created a lot of anxiety for me and I find myself *starting* the route with all that fear from negative past experiences right at the outset. So I’m wondering what negative experiences happened for you to create this negative sensation about highways? (Was it that time you were driving an unsafe vehicle?)

    I like knowing what triggers me because then I can try & offset it. Pad my journey with lots of time so getting lost doesn’t feel stressful. Making sure my car is in good shape so I have good tires & better traction in bad weather. Trying to take a new route slowly and realizing one day it will become more familiar. And music to reward me, always. 🙂 Attitude does influence so much! (But I still hate being lost & bad weather, lol!)


  • I’m the same way – when I’m familiar with the route, weather is good and I”m not rushed, I can enjoy myself pretty well. I’ve always disliked long stretches of road in the middle of nowhere. When I was driving in Kansas it was like that, same for Tennessee and same for parts of VT.

    I’m very happy and grateful that you wrote this. It helps me to read that I’m not alone. The mind is pretty powerful, isn’t it.

    I had a blow out once on a lonely part of a road and needed help to change the tire. Thankfully the help came but I was nervous for sure.

    I’m doing loads better and thanks for taking the interest in this, Holly. It means a lot to me. I’ve found a couple radio stations (literally TWO) that actually have music to play and that helps here on these lonely roads in VT.
