Food can be a great challenge and a great delight, it’s been love/hate for me over the years but the concept of food as medicine has helped me a lot in shifting old patterns. The really deep ingrained ones tend to come back but never totally back to how it was, so always progress in the longer term.
I am currently in that phase where I keep slipping and feel like I am falling back just a wee tad further than would be wise. My weight is scaring me and that can’t be good, christmas is the wrong time of year to be steadily losing will power, the thin end of the wedge will not, on this occasion, result in me being thin! Indeed we are looking at a polar opposite here, hence the rising scent of fear!
So I am seeking the next stage in the journey towards optimum health and it will be both weight loss and detoxification. I feel a resistance to doing the HCG protocol again but I do know that it is a path that does work to lose the weight quickly. That which calls me also is the notion of shifting towards a total raw food diet, I know my body would thrive on that regime but I don’t know how it will affect my weight. One tends to assume weight loss, certainly detox particularly if I am eating organic food, but you never know until you do it.
I keep thinking GREEN SMOOTHIES and then promptly doing absolutely nothing about it. If I translate my passion for kale in salads and stir frys into a GREEN SMOOTHIE there’s no telling where I may end up, there are no limits for Goddesses powered by green super food. Actually purple is supposed to be pretty good also and not just for burning off the dross with its searing flame, think eggplant and acai, blueberries, grapes and purple cabbage.
But first I need to get through Christmas…………I know I can do it the question is how big will I be at the end of that tinselled, flashing tunnel leading to the North Pole? Will I be the size of a house or even mansion, generously overflowing my fabulous wardrobe, or will I merely be the size of a truck or perhaps a small moving van. Keep watching this space, you are all my witnesses Goddess help me, I WILL SURVIVE the season of Sugar and Starch!
