I look totally weird but what the hey.
Fruit is Stacey’s Friend...blog entry # 22…my journey in becoming 100% LoFat Raw Vegan, meaning eating 80% or more of my calorie intake from carbs >10% Fat, >10% protein. Aka 80/10/10, or Fruitarian if you will.
Day 1 (14 days to go) gotta have an end in site, I plan on going longer than 2 weeks, but at 2 weeks time I will feel very good about myself!!!
Ok so as you all know I have fallen of the wagon big time…! Not one blog entry since I returned from Costa Rica ☹ All for reasons that sound pathetic and self pitiable…(laughing with a sad face)……so this entry is to proclaim my new fresh beginning (emphasis on fresh fruit)!!!! Here is what went wrong and my in the near future plans to correct my previous endeavors. Following is a list of what I have realized in my failures, and the solutions which I am preparing to start practicing (there is never any gain from just stating problems without trying to come up with a solution for them, in “my matter of fact I know everything and you don’t voice” ;)
Recognition #1 ….I am truly addicted to the SAD (standard American diet), which include but are not limited to cooked foods, salt, dairy products, and everything else that you know you should not be eating, but want to for some reason, but can’t put your finger on why….I now know why …..addiction!!!!
Solution #1…go about this diet as any other addicted person must do 12 steps! 1st step, admit it!
Recognition #2….I am an all or nothing type of girl (awful realizing this about myself, but unfortunately it is true in more than one aspect in my life)….I am either gung ho and totally enthralled or the complete opposite “F’ it all, I’m gonna do want I want now” type of attitude… So introducing even the slightest variation of the LFRV diet leads to an absolute failure in my attempts to change. Even that “oohhh just one bite” mentality is not going fly! I have gone ssooo far gone off the diet that I even eat French fries, and cheese once again (what a wicked web we weave …in a sultry, sarcastic, drawn out, self defeated voice)
Recognition #3…real life, face to face support/motivation. When you have no one in your life who practices the same beliefs, nor do the people in your life even believe/support you in what you are doing, it can make it very hard to continue your own practice. As a social person I like to be surrounded by people who like and do the same things as me (I am sure you do to)…so when there is no one with you, and every one against you (also while they scrutinize you) it is hard to stay on track. Solution #3 find Fruit Friends! I have a meet-up group on meetup.com called “Los Angeles Fruit Friends” please join me ☺
FUTURE Fruitee PLANNING Committee!!!!
1. Since I am addicted, I am unable to be around people or places that will tempt my addiction…Sorry if this sounds mean, but I need to become a hermit so I can accomplish what I want/need for myself…I am sure those who love me will understand!
2. I need to buy a whole lotta fruit! Which I did this morning! So I am set. If what I have stops sounding appetizing then I need to go buy new fruit, and if that happens again then so be it…One great way to save the fruit you just don’t feel like eating is freezing it, or dehydrating it!
3. I am hereby now electing Helena as my Fruit friend, Helena if you are reading this, thanks for hanging out the past couple of days it has been amazing, what a difference a day makes with a real life fruit friend to converse with!
Thanks for reading even tho I suck now! I hope that although I am not one of those people who just pick up this diet and run with it (im the exact opposite boohoo) that I am still helpful to this health movement, eye-opener, or just helpful to you if you are on this journey as well. It is tough for me, but I am going to keep trying....even when I fall down really hard, I know I am coming back to my fruits it is just a matter of when…so many things have happened recently that were true signs I needed to get back on the horse…and I just could not ignore them any longer…so if you are in the same predicament as me…Please set a date to start again you will not regret it!
