Rainbow diet


Saturday, February 08, 2014

Looking back on January, I am proud that I lost a good amount of weight! Towards the beginning of the month I was on a roll! Then towards the end of the month I started to waver a bit. But my attitude is still pretty good, even though at the end of the month I didn't do so hot. But I'm not going to beat myself up over this, it does no good. I am going to learn from it and press on! So that's why I've decided to UP the fruit and veggies. Here is a peak of some things in my fridge: strawberries, apples, kiwi, pears, blueberries, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, zucchini, and peppers.

It's only been a little while, but I can not tell you the ENORMOUS difference I feel in my mood. I still eat oatmeal, crackers, peanut butter, or yogurt sometimes and of course dips with the raw veggies but I am eating healthier, more natural foods. Basically, If it doesn't feel right, then I'm not eating it! I am letting my addiction and emotional cravings go on vacation and take the backseat for awhile, and I feel like this is a vacation I don't want to come back from. I am trying to look at it as "Eat to live, and not live to eat."

    It's odd how we depict our fitness routine by the month, as I have the same problem in wavering at the end of the month. I love your "Rainbow Diet" and the photos! emoticon

    emoticon I have been focusing more freggies too. My focus has been emoticon eating too. They say the goal is to eat two from each color daily. Isn't it amazing how much better your body feels.

Keep it up. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    what a great blog! I just came home from Costco loaded up with the same: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, brussel sprouts, asparagus, carrots and loads of asparagus!

Your photos are great and the color alone makes your blog so happy! I love it!

The more I read about carbs or gluten, the less I want to eat of them....it's a slow weaning process!

Thank you! Keep up the great work!! emoticon emoticon
