It's almost the end of my planning period at work....and instead of grading papers, I was trying to figure out what I would eat for dinner, sorta on the hungry side already. Then a thought occurred to me...I've gone an entire week with no soda or tea. That's AMAZING...I'm sure there have been times when I have drank tea with every meal...and I love NuGrape and Sprite. Yaaay for me!!!! I did fall off my raw diet some this weekend...and I even a sub that had chicken in it (on Sunday) , but I did not go back to soda. I've been drinking smoothies, water, and juice!!!!! I think I am back on track for the week, though!!! yay for me!!!

Today is my first weekend day on the diet...hmmm...i have fallen off the wagon slightly. I had not eaten any "cooked food" ( a baked potato) since Tuesday, but today I went out with my bf and we went to REd Lobster for lunch.
To my credit, I had a caesar salad with no meat....and a bowl of creamy potato bacon soup. I also ate one cheddar bay biscuit....as soon as the biscuit hit my stomach...I could tell a difference.
However, today is also the first day that I just haven't been hungry hungry either, so maybe it's a good thing. I dunno...I'm trying to hold out...I gotta see how my weight loss progresses before I decide which avenue I'm going to take. with the raw food, i stay constantly hungry...and at my job, i only have 26 minutes to eat...that's including from the time I walk out of the door and not counting trying to stop by the restroom or anything. so really and truly, i don't have the time to eat the big meals that i need on the raw diet. i also can't snack while i'm up working...so i just stay hungry until i finally get away from work and unlike in the past...when i could stop by and get a burger and then drop by my parent's house for a while...now i'm either getting a side salad since all the others have meat and still being hungry or i'm rushing home.
Raw food just really appealed to me because i heard it can help clear up allergies...and my sinuses drive me crazy all year long...all day long, but i don't know if it is suited to my lifestyle..... i just have to wait and see!

ok, so last night, I went out with my mother for a little while. She wanted to stop by Bojangles and get my dad a meal. I LOVE BOJANGLES....and have loved it since I was small...not the chicken or the biscuits, but the dirty rice and the seasoned fries....omg! so anyway, the food wasn't ready and we had to pull off to the side and they even offered me a free beverage, but I stayed strong!!!!! now i gotta see if i can make it through this first weekend...

LOL...only 2 days in and it almost ended. I was sooo hungry at the end of work yesterday and then my mom made it worse. My mom called and asked if I could pick up some food from my dad...from a fast-food restaurant. As I sat in McDonald's drive-thru, I could barely place an order. I ended up with a side salad for myself and a double cheeseburger meal for my father. Why, oh why did I go to their house. My daddy kept saying, "it's more than I can handle, have some!" I sat there eating my pear and wishing... But hopefully, I can stay on the wagon. Even though in the past year or so, I had drastically cut down on my fast food intake, I realized why I love them so much...lol! Getting off work hungry....and not even wanting to wait that 15 minutes that it takes to get home to eat..is certainly motivation enough for a trip to Mickey D's, so it's really hard trying to avoid that. I've gotta start bringing a 4pm snack because that's when it hits me and hits me hard....:( and many days I leave work as late as 5:30.

Soo...on my first day of trying something new...I sorta get off track, but I did maintain willpower. I went to a funeral after work and afterwards, everyone was sitting down, eating all of these wonderfully prepared soul foods and I was just hmmm....I managed to avoid eating there though. I ended up at Wendy's. I ordered a side salad and a baked potato, that I only ate with a little bit of cajun seasoning and pepper, when I got to my mom's house. Hopefully, I can maintain willpower. I need to buy a better scale. I can't really tell what's going on with the old one that I have. My mom and I walked for 25 minutes...so I can't really complain...trying to get myself together!!!!
