What a blessed day it is! I truly feel blessed to be alive this morning. The fruit I am eating is extra delicious and I feel great. Why do I feel so great? Well, I think my body is adjusting very well to the Raw Till 4 diet I’ve been on.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about making changes to better my health. I did not feel bad or miserable in a sense. I just wanted to do everything I can to not hold myself back. I think I can be a better activist, runner and person if I put my health into a higher regard.
Well folks, in the past two weeks, I have felt more energized, happy, silly and connected. I pray a lot more. I allow myself to enjoy the things I love. And…I gained weight.
This is not really a significant thing in my mind, but it is a measure of getting more healthy. I have not seen a doctor in a while. The last time I did they told me I had healthy levels of all the things…I was just lean. I have looked at my BMI and decided I could do with gaining a few pounds.
Two weeks ago, I weighed myself for the first time in a couple years. Actually, I’ve never weighed myself before, it was always at the doctor. Well, it was overdue! I wrote down the weight and vowed to gain a couple.
The next day I decided to do Raw Till 4 after listening to Fully Raw Kristina and her health turn around on a raw food diet. I was a little skeptical, but decided to believe. I love fruit, it makes me happy and why not be happy?
These past two weeks have seen some great food, great workouts and fulfilling work shifts. I could not be more thrilled with the results I saw on the scale this morning. I had gained three pounds.
Although weight is definitely not a true measure of health, the mental boost I have from this is really inspiring to continue to further my health, and to eat raw.
What inspires you?
