Well, let's just say I have room for improvement in my 100% Rawgust hahahaha! I probably ate 2/3 raw this past week. I noticed that I did eat WAY more fruits and veggies though. I lost a couple of pounds and my skin looks like a teenagers (a combo of this horrible humidity and detox). Whoo hooo! Rawgust is like puberty all over again!
Rawgust is not only about raw food for me, it is about balance. I think I achieved a fairly decent amount of balance this week. I'm trying not to think so much about food and how I can get the perfect nutrient to calorie ratio out of every fucking morsel I put into my body and then get mentally exhausted and eat wings instead. I'm challenging myself to not over think shit and just eat.
This attempt to be less of a perfectionist and live more is seeping into a lot of elements in my life. It is a good feeling. I'm not moving into a complacent place (as if that were possible) but in a place where I am not so hard on myself and am trying to focus on doing what is healthy for me in that moment. Sometimes this defies what neurotic Nazi Jane has thought of as healthy- like taking rest days and eating some fries when the mood strikes. Balance is healthy. Stress is not. Trying to be perfect is not.
I love that saying, progress not perfection. I'm trying to put that into my mental rotation of shit to say to myself (aka mantras). I hope all of you who are participating in Rawgust are saying this too. The goal is progress, not perfection.
