More is More…

Oh hello freezing Wednesday, how are you?  This past weekend’s warmer breeze was a complete tease.  Unfortunately it’s still the dead of winter in these parts.  Boo.  I’m ready to walk around in a T-shirt.  I think LA is calling my name.  Again. 

In other news, I’ve had an epiphany.  I was browsing my favorite blogs the other night and I came across Gena’s blog, Choosing Raw.  I’m always intrigued by people who are able to eat a mostly raw, vegan diet as I don’t think I have the willpower or discipline.  After reading for a bit I realized that every single thing she wrote made complete sense.  It’s not about removing things from my diet, it’s about adding all the good stuff until I eventually stop needing/wanting the not so good stuff.  Doesn’t that sound so much better than “I can eat this, this, this or that.”

The thought of not eating certain foods actually gives me anxiety.  I’m not so sure this normal, but it’s just an overwhelming sense of uneasiness.  I worry what I’ll eat in social situations, for breakfast, for dinner…you get the point.  Marianne Williamson stresses treating yourself with love, especially when you eat and if that means meditating before and after to relax then so be it.  Beginning to unravel the twisted relationship I have with food is the ultimate goal and as you all have been reading for over two years, it’s been an interesting journey to say the least. 

I was talking with my roomie last night so we decided the best course of action would be to just add lots of fruits and veggies and take it from there.  Nothing drastic, nothing overwhelming.  Veggie it up, I say.  Bring on the greens.  Let’s see what happens. 

Oh and I totally didn’t work out this morning.  Woops.  Looks like I’ll be dancing this evening.  How is your Wednesday going?
