365 Raw: Day 32 with “Grazing”

Day 32 was pretty good. The Husband and I were supposed to do a race today. He still did, and I tagged along for moral support. I was going to do it until I was down for 3 days last week. So, while I waited for him to cross the finish line, I did a run/walk workout (very slow pace) around the park.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m really cautious about eating too much at one sitting now. I guess I’m associating it to being nauseous. So, I’ve been grazing a lot more. The draw-back is that it feels like I constantly have to eat. In contrast, when I would have all ten oranges at once, I wouldn’t need to eat again for a few hours. Even with all the grazing, I only got in about 2000 calories today… not quite enough… especially with exercise.

Most of the cooked vegans had pizza last night (Papa John’s Veggie, no cheese). I wanted some and for a brief moment thought… “Just a bite wouldn’t hurt”, but then I thought about the 10 year old who chose not to have pizza. We were going to make an exception to let her have a little, but she turned it down. Clearly, she feels the benefits of avoiding grains far outweigh the momentary indulgence. There was no way I was touching pizza after that.
