Day 9. Facing the Shadow
Saturday, August 11, 2012
Day 9 entails facing the shadow. Inevitably cravings come up and being able to set with them and listen to yourself can be a Godsend. I'll admit,its been a long long time since I have craved anything with meat, but I remember being really hungry and driving past a steakhouse and having to fight the car who wanted to turn around on its own. Since I am so dedicated to my vegan lifestyle, I knew that I was just hungry and needed to go home and eat. But what about Chocolate? The only things that seems to be able to have me be a little less than 100% vegan is chocolate. There are times that I cave for those little round candy coated candies with M's on the front. Usually when I am stressed or tired I am at my weakest. Vegan chocolate is wonderful but not quite the same for me, So maybe I need to plan for bad days with healthy snack, Eating a sweet piece of fruit can and does take the crave away. And I have noticed in doing this cleanse, that I don't have to fight the chocolate beast. Getting rid of sugar for these 21 days seems to be helpful. So helpful, I plan to keep on going for a bit with this plan. I am loving it.
