The days just roll into each other and that feels good for summer. I’ve been reading an excellent book for the last 2 days that has captivated me. The bad news is that I’m staying up really late because I can’t stop reading. I’m loving that the days are flowing so nicely, though. It means that I’m getting into a nice groove of things here. The food/diet/whatever you want to call it is feeling very effortless. I’m still noticing emotional cues that make me feel uncomfortable while eating so I just stop, breathe, notice, breathe out and move on. This is a good lesson. As much as I think I’ve come so far (and I have), I still am on the journey and some things take time.
exercise: hopped on the rebounder for all of 5 minutes before my kids took over. (I guess they wanted to have fun too!)
yesterday’s green smoothie: 2 bananas, 1 10 oz bag of red raspberries, 2 scoops rice protein powder, 6 or 7 leaves of kale, 2 TBSP vitamineral green, 1 TBSP coconut oil – made 2 quarts of smoothie
exercise: walked up and down a hill for a little over 2 miles. this is a nice hill that gets your heart pumping immediately
dinner: a bed of local greens, leftovers of kelp noodles, jicama salad, a couple dollops of raw marinara sauce to finish it and an ear of corn.
Yesterday was a busy day of making food. I’ve been steadily selling out of everything and with a person short at the cafe, it’s hard to keep up with all the tasks. I really need at least one more person in the cafe each day to keep food prep up. Yesterday I made raw mayo, sunflower seed cheeze, sunshine salad, not tuna and onion bread. This was in between helping customers, answering phones and getting orders out. It was a full productive day and my back and legs were slightly sore from all the standing. It was good to take a walk to move them in a new way, get lymph moving and get circulation going.
I’m still at the same weight from the fast. I’m not bothered by this at all. I’d like to step up exercising to see where takes me.
this morning’s peach nectar juice for one amazingly thirsty person: 5 or 6 leaves of kale, 2 ounces of pea shoots, 1 stalk celery, 5 small peaches and 1 orange. It’s heaven in a mason jar. This made like 40 ounces of juice plus.
