Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . 12 small honey tangerines
12:00 . . 8 honey tangerines + a few medjool dates
3:00 . . . 1 lb. cherry tomatoes + a few pickling cukes
4:00 . . . handful of dates
5:00 . . . a few honey tangerines
6:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + a few dates + 2 bananas
Play: walking/running ~ 4 miles, stretching, relaxing
I'm grateful for these big juicy dates, because they are getting me through this last little bit of late winter/early spring.
A few years ago I wrote down something that I will share with you:
There is always excitement before and during an act of dissipation, but afterwards, only sorrow and regret. ALWAYS.
I wrote this on a card and carried it in the car with me, for those times I was tempted by the idea of The Other. I wanted to remind myself that no matter how I was feeling now, I WOULD regret it to the max later. For sure. Every single time.
We each have these little tricks that help us. Maybe this one will be of some help to you.
Another trick that helped me was carrying an Arnold Ehret book with me in the car. He is one of the most powerful and inspiring writers on the fruit diet and having his book with me felt like having a friend right there, present and guiding. Thank you, Arnold! I love you still. ♥
