Side Effects of Falling Off the Wagon

Posted Jun 09 2009 11:15pm

Just like that little lady bug climbing the flower petal, I’m climbing my way back onto the 100% raw wagon….


I recently shared that I fell off the wagon. Then I confessed about my not-so-raw moments. Then the side effects hit me like those not-so-great decisions can.

What side effects, you ask?

How about:

  • fatigue
  • probably because I’m not sleeping well
  • guilt
  • cravings (I wasn’t craving anything when I was 100% raw!!)

I’ve been thinking….

Then came the questions.

  • Do I really want to be 100% raw for the rest of my life? (I am already high-raw and have been for the past few years. Yet, I feel compelled to be 100% raw. Oy, the decisions!)
  • Why did I fall off the wagon in the first place? (I’ve been through a LOT of stressful events in my life; why was this time different?)
  • How long will it take me to climb back on the wagon? (I’m not going to rush myself; 3 family deaths is tragic; I’m just going to go with the flow.)

Future rawness

So, where will this raw path lead me? I’ll always, always stay on the raw path. I have an endless passion for raw foods and their health benefits. I know I’ll eat raw, drink raw juices and smoothies, and write and blog about it for as long as I’m physically able to. What excites me, is that I have the awesome (ahem: RAWsome) ;-) opportunity to share my journey with you, my readers. That is an honor–and it isn’t something I take lightly!

Raw inspiration!

I’m thrilled that my colleague and talented writing friend, Jeanne Grunert, wrote Raw Comfort Foods for Emotional Eaters! She also wrote another very helpful article regarding food and detoxing:  Raw Food Detoxification: Shedding Unwanted Thoughts. Thanks to Jeanne for sharing inspiration! It’s especially helpful to me right now. :-)

What about you? Are you struggling with food? Did you fall off the 100% raw wagon–or any wagon? Spill the beans; I did! :-)
