Get Up Eight

I know I’ve been posting more sissy-type “inspirational” blogs lately, but I really did like the Japanese bit of wisdom below.  I promise to move on to more tangible, less pansy-ass type blogging in my next post.

As I briefly mentioned in my last note, my fiance had some eye surgery a week or so ago.  He’s healing well (as far as I can tell!), but his physical restrictions have diverted me from raw food more than I would like.  It goes something like this:

  • I get off work (from my awesome raw food job!)
  • I head to gym.
  • I run an errand (to the library, grocery, RedBox, etc).
  • I get home and make dinner.

Tick, Tock! Tick, Tock! I feel too busy to plan a meal!

After a busy day and coming home to care for someone, making a raw dinner can be a bit much, especially if you’re not making a simple salad and dressing.  Since my fiance is not a raw foodie, but he’s pretty much a vacuum and will eat what I put in front of him, I’ve got it better than most.  However, if something raw smells funny or tastes “off,” he will abort mission and head for a Totino’s pizza from the freezer.  Therefore, I need to plan our dinners.  This ensures that I can eat raw, and he will actually eat.

Since I’ve been pretty busy lately, the planning part has become difficult…ok, honestly non-existent.  So for the past week or so, my dinners have been cooked (still vegan, though!)  I can definitely tell a difference in my energy levels and not in a good way.  It also feels like eating cooked food, makes me crave more cooked food!  That’s not the direction I want to be trending towards!

After Mass on Sunday, I was reading the bulletin and dreaming of a Starbucks hot chocolate, when I read a line that re-lit my motivational fire.  It’s a Japanese piece of wisdom, that I hope helps you on your journey this week:

Fall down seven times, get up eight.

Raw Pizza for The LT and me tonight!

Even though I may fall off the “raw wagon” now and again, I know that this is truly the path I want to follow.  So starting tonight, I’m bringing home a raw pizza from Cousin’s IV.  I may have fallen seven times, but I’m getting up for an eighth…and bringing some raw pizza with me!  Keep this line in mind during the week and when you fail or falter, know that you are just one effort shy of getting up and succeeding!
