The time is going by so quickly. I feel like near a black hole, or something, and the time is getting sucked away from me before I get to use it.

I went to bed around 10:30 and woke around 7am to pee. I was too tired, so I crawled back into bed and didn't get up until about 9:15! That's sleeping in for me! I felt uncomfortable last night, because the dinner I made felt like a brick in my stomach. I woke to the same feeling--the food didn't digetst well. I don't know if it's because of all the nuts/seeds, or because of the food combining. It's definitely from the food, though. The "stuffing" recipe said it made enough for 3-4 servings, so I made 1/4 of the recipe. It looked like a lot, and even though I wasn't very hungry I ate it all anyway. That was probably the mistake I made. So much for not stuffing yourself on Thanksgiving if you are a raw foodist (or aspiring to be one). It was yummy, but I'll definitely not eat that much again when I make it another time.

I've been taking a sauna and tub soak every day. It's making my skin feel smoother. It's going to cost me a fortune, but I'm just counting it as a retreat. I haven't felt lonely at all (probably because I get a lot of phone calls during the day). And I'm able to go to sleep without fears, which is a good thing!

FEELING:

I'm feeling like it's easy to be a raw foodist. It might be hard being a perfectly balanced raw foodist, but I don't think this year that's coming is going to be tough on me. I look forward to being 100% raw. I'm doing mostly raw these days while I'm alone. I can't count them as actually raw, though, because the carob isn't raw. I still need to find a good, inexpensive source for raw organic carob.

LEARNING:

I'm not doing any active learning, other than reading some raw email that comes in, or looking through raw food prep books.
