On the Raw Side: Week 5

After blogging for thirty days straight, I needed a break from that little blinking cursor.

I thought I would try some cooked food after the first thirty days, but I haven’t yet.  I am considering some vegan spring rolls for dinner tonight though.  My main concern is that I will regret eating them.  At the same time, I’m curious to see if they still taste as good as I remember.

I haven’t tracked my food since ending the challenge.  I’m basically eating the same things but have increased the fats slightly (nuts).  I still don’t eat any more than 1 oz per day but I have had them more often.  I did take one Advil this week.  One of those pomegranate seeds became a weapon in my gums.  I was shocked by how painful it was.  I couldn’t concentrate on anything except that so I took an Advil.  It seemed to take affect almost instantly but it also wore off really fast.  Clearly things aren’t staying in my system as long as before.

I got my first “no poo” hair compliment on Wednesday.  Of course, I didn’t tell her that I haven’t washed my hair in five weeks.

My week five numbers and my 30 day numbers overlap a bit.  I did lose 2.4 lbs since last Friday, for a grand total of 11 pounds in five weeks.  I also lost another 1.4 inches since Friday, bringing my five week total to 10.7 inches (chest, waist, hips, right thigh, right arm, right calf, right forearm).

Sticking with eating raw was rather difficult this week.  My brain kept trying to talk me into eating other stuff.  Hopefully this is just a phase.

Well, on to week six!
