Day 2

Twas my 25th today. I didn't stick to my goals as much as I'd like to have. There was lots of snack food laying around with my family being at my apartment. I'm allowing myself one cooked meal a day for the first 30 days of RawFu, so I wasn't totally off-goal today. I had a few not so raw potato chips sometime this afternoon. Boo.
My parents took me out for Hibachi. I gorged myself. I'm not gonna lie. Avo and cuke rolls, then steamed rice, hibachi veggies and mushrooms! Then I ate some birthday strawberry pie (that I made this morning). I was prepared to not stick with everything today, so I'm okay with it.
The fam's gone, and tomorrow's a new day. And grocery day, even! I love grocery shopping!!!

The boy and I had a great idea earlier tonite. It happened like this:
He asked if there was anything he could do to help me with my RawFu endeavor. (Isn't he great?) I told him that I didn't think there was anything specific, but that I wanted to rearrange the food cabinets so raw stuff is the first thing I see and the easiest thing to reach. I told him he might have to reach a little higher for his food (which is fine, he's taller than me). He said he'd stop leaving not-so-healthy snacks sitting around, like potato chips on the coffee table.
I mentioned it'd be great to start leaving bananas and apples on the coffee table. He said, "why not?" So, tomorrow, we're buying a second bowl for fruit to leave on our coffee table! Go us!

I'm looking forward to the next 98!

That pie was freaking amazing by the way. I don't regret it at all :)


Raw Fu Fighting: Day 1

So, I'm Raw Fu Fighting with over 1000 other amazing kids. Today, we started the RawFu 100 Day Raw Food Challenge, and I'm quite excited about it.

I've established some goals and safe foods for the first 10 days. Safe foods include bananas, watermelon and carrots. My goals are to exercise at least 5 of those 10 days; to eat enough calories (this is often a problem for me when eating raw); and to enjoy it!

The boy took before photos for me last night, and I weighed and took measurements this morning! Those are as follows:
14" arm
29" thigh
38/45.5" bust
40" waist
55.5" hip
46.5" thighs

I'm thinking that I'll weigh and measure every 10 days.

Today, the boy ordered a Blendtec for my birthday!! I'm so excited about it. He must love me ;)
