My Very Own RAW WEEK!
I'm going to try my darnest to do all RAW all WEEK this week!
Since I woke up between 4 and 4:30am - and woke up pretty well - at that - I decided to start using a new shampoo/conditioner combo - one of the few things I actually add to my body. (I don't wear make up or much else for that matter - but I do put Shampoo - usually every other day - and conditioner maybe once a week).
Naturally Speaking...Tomorrow I will start Oil Pulling again. I use either Coconut Oil OR Grapeseed Oil. About once a month - if I remember - I will use a 'scrub' that was made by a friend of me - locally - that contains - Coffee, Olive Oil, and Sugar.
As far as food intake is concerned here is what today looks like for me...day 1 of all raw...
2 Large Glasses of Water
1 Large Mason Jar of Green Smoothie (2 C Mango, 1/2 C Papaya, 2 Large Handfuls of Spinach, Water)
1/4 of a Large Watermelon
Various teas and herbal tonics
1 Super LARGE Salad - yet to be determined - with homemade Raw Dressing.
All of the fruits you see listed above were eaten individually throughout the day.
At least 5 times a week I walk for about 30 to 40 minutes each day! I hope to increase this most days. My plan is to walk from home to work and back 5 times a week in addition to 15 to 20 minutes each day. By walking from home it's a mile one way...so I will probably walk at the very minimum 2 miles, 5 times a week. I hope to do a minimum of 15 to 20 mins of yoga 5 times a week up to an hour a day at the most. In addition - I hope to do Step Aerobics at least once a week.
I'm not really doing this to lose weight - but if it happens, it happens. I'm doing this more for well-being, mostly.
I do better when I am accountable so my points here at my blog will certainly help with the accountability part. More on this - throughout the week!
