DAY 2 (this not-great picture was taken with my phone of the lovely bowl Charlotte gave me, with the last few bites of yummy salad)
Starting Weight: 159

Current Weight: 159

Today's Exercise: 30 minutes on the Wii Fit

Today I ate:
-1/3 slice of country wheat bread (from the bakery) french toast*
-salad of lettuce, carrots, greek olives, leeks, and a delicious raw dressing of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and honey**
-Lots of frozen grapes!!
-Apple
-16 oz. smoothie (raspberry, strawberry, banana, spinach, honey) Yum!
-GRAWnola (sprouted, deydrated grains), with almond milk***
-raisins

Observations:
*I know, I know!!! Obviously, NOT RAW!! What is wrong with me? OK, I know what is wrong with me...I am a BIG TIME mindless snacker. I was on the phone, cooking breakfast, took a bite...and another...and another. Man, it was good though.

**Charlotte made me the most delicious, wonderful salad. We were at the Raptor's Center and having a picnic. And, Charlotte, being the sweet friend that she is, made me this wonderful salad and served it in the most beautiful wooden bowl, which she GAVE ME!! She is a great friend. **Love you!!!** That salad was delicious. And it is so much easier to eat raw, when others are eating what you are eating...and when they are supportive. So THANK YOU, Charlotte!! You are too good to me!

Today has been a much easier day of eating for me. For one, I stayed busy and occupied all day (Charlotte and the kids came over and we moved furniture...our favorite past time, when we are together! Ha!). And, I wasn't in the kitchen all day making yummy food for everyone else. I can see that is going to be a big obstacle, unless I figure out raw foods to make for myself that are just as yummy and enticing as the cooked food I am making for everyone else.

***This gRAWnola with raisins, honey, and almond mylk was delicious! It was so satisfying, and a nice change from fruits and veggies. The gRAWnola is sprouted grains (wheat, barley, lentils, etc.) dehydrated. The almond mylk is not homemade, so I am sure it has been pasteurized, and thus not really raw, but it was great in a pinch and is so delicious! I hope to make my own soon.
