Ugh! It´s out of control...

Monday, June 16, 2008

So a few days back, I quit my raw food challenge. It was a rash decision, spur of the moment, and I was almost finished anyway.

It was becoming a serious chore whereas before I was enjoying it a lot. Considering my issues with food, I thought ok, if it´s not feeling good, then don´t do it.

So what happened....about four days of total anarchy is what happened.
Not only haven´t I eaten well AT ALL, but I haven´t even been accountable for what ive eaten. Raw food is MUCH more food tracker friendly! :)

I think that really I HAVE to do raw foods because it´s the only way i´ve found to control myself, my portions, my habits, my binging, my hunger. If I can have a little of something then I take it, eat it and then promptly feel unsatisfies and eat more. It doesn´t feel good to feel so out of control.

My whole point of going back to cooked food was to have MORE control, and here I am feeling like a slave to my big fat tummy. UGH!

Advice, anyone?

    Hi! I love your candor. I would like to do raw foods, but feel that it owuld be a daunting task. If it is easy to track, why not! Could you give me an example of a day in the raw ? :-)

    Frustration must be in the air. I am not in balance with my work outs or my food. I try to look at this time as a way to re-evaluate. What works and what doesn't and why? it really is an individual thing and the hard part is it changes and shifts over time as our own needs change and shift. For me, it isn't static. I am currently working on re-doing all of it, my entire life seems to be calling out for me to dig deeper--to get at the real issues and to see where I can bring things back into balance. Try to use this time of upset--this time of inbalance and not see it as a bad thing, but as an opportunity to realign--to re-think and re-do. Life seems to be a constant re-take and re-make, but well worth the process.

    I feel the same way. I can have say, an orange, and I'm fine, but if someone hands me veggie fajitas or something, I'm going to just keep eating (first choice here was going to be cheesecake, but then said no, cheesecake is going to kill me one day, change that to something more user friendly. lol.)

    could you try something cooked with something raw? not like a salad with your meal, although that would work. or maybe even some extra snacks?

    I'm trying to figure out a system here that works for me, too, so I know it's irritating. I hope you manage to find something that helps!
