Wednesday Weigh-in - Bloated!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

One of the best things you can do for yourself is set a goal. It can be big or small, and you can have multiple ones at the same time. Setting small goals will keep you on track. Aim for one raw meal a day at the beginning. Or set out to try new foods each week to find more you can add to your diet. You can have a reward system if it'll help you motivate you, but don't make food the reward. If you have to, make it a raw recipe if you can. But don't be too hard on yourself if you fail and just don't succeed. We all make mistakes and can't do it all. Go slow and you'll be more likely to keep these new healthy habits.

Did my run today!

I think my weight is up because I've been eating salt a lot this week. It's that time of the month, and I'm super puffy and bloated. Plus, I ate that pizza twice in a week. Either way, I'm still eating salt in the food my husband makes for me, but I've upped my water intake (as you can see). Either that will flush me out or bloat me more with water retention. I guess we'll find out! I'm working out now, so that'll help either way. Sweating lots here in the 111 degree heat, too!

Either way, this is my first period without my birth control pills. Josh got fixed 6 months ago, so I finally was able to quit taking them. I can SO tell the difference at this point. It's unfortunate, but if I keep as raw as possible, that should ease the situation. I've noticed that much - WAY easier cramps, lighter flow, etc etc. This has been quite an experience, so I'm glad to see how the pills were working. Hopefully the food will help. I'll make that my new goal - raw for easier periods. It can happen!

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Audra, we all feel that way from time to time. No worries though. One step at a time, one day at a time. That's all we have! Please let me know how I can help! <3

I noticed more cramping when I first got off my pills too. It takes a little bit for our bodies to readjust, especially if you took it for a long time. But I did notice that the juice while that time of month was a BIG help.

I LOVE seeing pics of your meals! It really inspires me to start making my own.

Angeline, I was on the same one for 5.5 years and other different ones prior to that. I'm experiencing a LOT of crap that I guess I need to just work its way out! I'll have to remember to juice more during that time though if you think it helps!

Yay! If you make some good ones, take pictures and share!! ;o)
