This morning I woke up with the usual grogginess at around 6:30am. I’m a “night person”, something I’ve always been, and most likely a result of being a musician AND having burned-the-midnight-oil on PHP programming projects through the years. So, taking my son and my nephew to school in the morning was typical… me, not being fully awake yet.
Feeling The Energy
But, once I got back home I felt very energetic. And this feeling of energy was something quite different from days when I depended on a morning cup of coffee to get me going. I think this is worth noting, because this energetic-feeling is like a new state of mind, feeling quite alert to my surroundings yet not hyper from a coffee-induced surge.
Now I’m wondering, is this new-found clarity just my imagination? Or, is it due to having been 100% raw for the past 5 days? See, I’ve been basically 75% raw (maybe realistically speaking, 60% raw) vegan, but I think I’m finally feeling the natural energy of being 100% raw. And, it feels quite good.
Still A Little Back Soreness
With one exception, and I can’t quite figure this out. I still have some slight back pain and soreness. But, it is definitely not as severe as a couple of days ago. So, I definitely am feeling some improvement there, though why I would have such back pain after starting a 100% raw vegan diet is beyond me. Perhaps it’s a detox symptom?
But I confess I haven’t done a yoga routine in a while. I need to start again on a daily basis.
So, this morning for breakfast I had a tall smoothie consisting of 1 banana, some blackberries, 1/2 cup of orange juice, with a few ice cubes. Awesome! And I ate a small salad of fresh lettuce, mushrooms, avocado and sprouts with coconut curry dressing. The salad for breakfast is a bit odd, but I can’t make any raw pancakes just yet.
It’s time to get to the supermarket and buy a few ingredients!
