Today I Woke Up Happy

 In Health & Wellness

Day 3 and due to a super late night I was sleeping 😴 in so was woken up by the dogs wanting a potty break. The daylight wakes them up but they usually give us till 8 or 9 after super late bedtimes.

Kerwin let them out (thank you! πŸ’–πŸ˜) and as I lay there I realized I was happy. Tired and sleepy yes, but HAPPY and feeling good. Woohooo!!

I recall just a couple weeks back waking up and wondering when I would ever WANT to get up, or feel great upon waking up. Even waking up before my alarm I’d be almost sleep walking and kinda crabby, at least till I woke up. Kerwin would probably say a lot crabby. LOL. Not today. 😊

I expect it’s the off loading of the recent cheese and my body doing a reset but I’m down 2.5 lbs.

What am I eating?

I have been eating practically non-stop these last two days! Nibbling and snacking on whatever Raw was in the fridge, I love leftovers!!, or pantry.

Made a fabulously yummy Nacho Cheeze, ate walnut taco meat with romaine lettuce from the garden, arugula / orange salad is made and ready to go with a very unusual, intensely flavorful tomato based dip type sauce for a “dressing”, fudge balls with coffee and my non-coffee peppermint mocha, oranges and oranges, flax crackers with almond butter and dates alternating with dipping the crackers in the nacho cheeze.

The worst thing you can do when eating Raw, or starting on any eating change I would imagine, is get hungry. So I’m heading that challenge off!

How do I FEEL?

And get this, I feel so LIGHT! Different than how I feel after eating cooked healthy foods. Still way better than the bloat I got from junk foods but not this lightness. I don’t know the right words to express it exactly but I feel beautifully empty inside this morning! Not sluggish or needing a kick start, my stomach woke up ready for whatever fuel I want to give it but I’m okay and not hungry yet.

What’s on the menu today?

I have radishes I’ve been stockpiling LOL, kale, spinach, Swiss chard and a couple other greens in my veggie bag to do something with today. I found a radish recipe I’m going to try out. 🀞🏼

And that’s all she wrote. I’m off to LIVE the day!

Until next time- Choose You, Choose Joie!

Larkin is such a good snuggler. 😍😌

    Yay! That’s great!
    I love that feeling of waking up and checking in with myself, realising I’m feeling good and happy. Although I’ve a long way to go in my healthy eating lifestyle, today I woke up feeling better too.
    Thanks for the inspiration of posts like these, Tiffany.
    No more cheese! No more cheese!

      Thanks!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ’–
      Maybe look at it the other way- how far you’ve come. Celebrate that and take one day at a time.
      No More Cheese πŸ§€ indeed!! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ It’s funny but a friend left a string of cheese and salami in our fridge and I was going to give it to the my raw eating dogs, knowing they’d love the treat, but then I’m like – hey, β€œlunch meat” isn’t good meat for them either and cheese? Oh heck no! 😊
