If you've read even a few posts on this blog, you've figured out that I'm not the steady and consistent type.  I often have way out there ideas and follow them with all gusto I can manage, then I'm done and it fizzles out.  I know this is not a sought out characteristic and in all honestly I try really hard to follow through and be THAT person, but lets just call it the duck that it is - genius!!  Really, who wants to do the same thing for-ev-er??  I just can't waste my time doing stuff that I don't want to anymore and I can't not try new things, because I'm afraid that I won't like it and quit.  I'm sure there's some clever little saying like, "It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all" but for life experiences instead of love, but I'm already bored with this post so I don't feel like looking it up. 

All that to say, I'm in a rut and going to try something new.  The raw food diet.   Only for two weeks. Surprise!! I think the idea is that eating "live foods" help your body cleanse, heal and a whole bunch of awesome things.  For me, I need a good cleanse - physically, emotionally, motivationally....  My weight loss has hit a plateau, I'm emotionally blah and I'm just in a rut.  Also, I told my friend Emily about two years ago that I would try vegetarianism.  So now that she's trying meat, I thought it only fitting to go the other way.  Wish me luck!

Day One:
I'm doing okay.  Lots of fruit, no coffee, big yummy salad and I tried a green smoothie (yum).  I did go out tonight and struggled with what to order.  I ended up with a Greek salad (cheese is not on the plan) and grilled falafel (cooked food is a no no ) BUT I didn't eat meat!!

You go girl! It's all about baby steps. I've eaten meat twice in the last month. I hope this helps your ruts. I know the feeling. And seriously I hate to sound like a nag, BUT you should come up here for a long weekend. We could go hiking, lay on the beach, go out for a drink and just relax. Hows that for cleansing?!?!? hehe. Love you!

I think I'm going to take you up on this. I need it. I'll call you later after I talk to hubby about it. Love you too!
