** So disappointing to not find anything that tastes good. Everything is make-shift and doesn’t taste good. Please just give me some good pre-made food!

Got a little upset today. There has been a lot going on with work and my diet. I didn’t realize I was having problems with my diet until I started crying about it, or maybe it was also part of everything else. I got upset because I was tired of having to cook everything all of the time. At no point can I take a break from it and grab some Subway or order in. I get home from a busy day and it’s past dinner, then I still have to cook dinner. Yes, I am positive about my new healthy and trust me, I love it! But sometimes it just gets to you not being able to just take a break from it. One day I’ll get there. I’ll be able to do my yoga, cook and be at work on time. One day … one day.

** Love whole Foods, the environment, the people, such a joy just to shop here. Costs me an arm and a leg today, but I stalked up on some of my favourite sauces that I can’t get at Herb and Spice. I always say, “When you find a product you love, buy 3 or one in every colour”. So I did!

*I’ve been working on not wasting any of my fruits and veggies. Key word: working on. I don’t eat what I’m not in the mood for and to be honest I’m never in the mood for broccoli or cauliflower. But I continue to buy it because I know it’s good for me. I work on making it part of my meals, but sometimes it just doesn’t get in there on time. My diet and my cooking will always be a work in progress and that’s completely okay. I can never know everything or be perfect with my waste, but the continued effort is what matters the most. Never give up on your journeys or experiments, we are scholars of life. Enjoy the journey!

*** This might be a little Too much information, so if you don’t want to know skip to tomorrow. I’ve been really bloated and gassy lately, but I’ve been eating the same stuff I have this whole time. It’s been very apparent this past week mainly. I think it might be the bananas in my smoothie. But I feel like the banana’s are an important part to my smoothies and they’re really good for you! I have started taking enzymes with my dinner as well, hoping that might help a little bit with breaking down everything. Went to yoga the other day, it’s been the first time in months. Too long, I just have no motivation. I know it’s important to do though. Healthy eating is part of a balance with exercise (body movement) as well.

*** I didn’t write anything yesterday. I think I’m tired of writing everything I eat. I believe the reason I started has been successful in getting me to where I am today. I will continue on this journey of my ‘New Healthy’ and keeping you posted. I will be trying new recipes and letting you know how that goes too. I would appreciate any feedback you may have in regards to what you might like to see or know. If you or someone you know has experiences with this or are going through this, feel free to share. Thank you for sharing this journey with me xo.

Love Always,
RCarr

  1. Do you have a gluten allergy? I have Celiac so I feel your pain! It was definitely trial and error when I first started eating gluten free, but it’s so much better now. Especially as more restaurants and brands have started catering to GF people! Best of luck!

    • No, it ended up just being a wheat allergy. It just took forever to find out and lots of tests. I’ve never been so thankful for a fad, but because of it there is more gf availability.

      • It’s totally a love/hate relationship with the fad for sure! So happy to have more choices, but it can be annoying when people are doing it to “lose weight” =).

      • I hear yeah, I live in a place that’s still working on having those options. When i go to California I can eat anywhere and have options. Patiently waiting… lol
