Day 18. Bring Light to yourself and others
Monday, August 20, 2012
Wow....I am almost done with this cleanse. Part of this whole process is developing a spiritual awareness of ourselves, our food choices, and of others around us. I really like this idea. Embarking on a Vegan lifestyle was a spiritual decision years ago for me. Not only did I want this for me, but I wanted to be more compassionate in the world.
Now that I am back to SP, I realise that I have changed in my time away. I'm not sure exactly when this happened but I am not the same gal that was here before. Instead of beating myself up for missing the mark on something, I am comfortable knowing I did my best. I have been tracking my food and when I did this before, I would berate myself if I went over my calorie or fat limit. Last night I was marveling on that fact that not only was I not doing that, I was marveling at the progress I was making. "Wow....I was 400 calories off on Thursday, 200 calories off on Saturday and only 20 calories off on Sunday and my fat consumption had dropped too. I was only 5 fat calories off of my plan. Woo Hoo! Go Me!"
I am making healthy changes for life and attitude is a huge part of this.
