Things that happened:

1) Week 1 of my raw diet. Didn't cheat. Feel great! 2 more weeks until I weigh in.

2) Sold a car! Dave will ride the bus to work, not only cutting down on gas but also his stress level. Estimated savings per month: $400! Can you believe it? Accident Insurance here is murder.

3) My flower sproutlings are up. I planted them a couple weeks ago and have since checked on them every five minutes like a small child.

4)Saturday we went to Indianapolis Saturday, and saw original famous paintings at the IMA for FREE. It pretty much made my day.

5) Fixed the hhr, our other car. The fuel pump went and it would randomly turn off while driving. Not fun.

6) Started our pre-marathon-training training program. It consisted of running once together because it rained all last week. This week we run 20 miles or something like that. Bring it on!

7) Dave is seriously reconsidering the military as a chaplain. We haven't decided anything yet, but the possibility is there. We'll update if anything happens!

Day 1.

I have a couple new rules to help me last 6 weeks, and hopefully change my lifestyle.

1) Whole grains are yes when I want them. Oatmeal, Barley flakes, Rye flakes can be breakfast when I want it. Just no milk and no sugar. Dinner I'll eat legumes and/or whole grains (quinoa, brown rice) only when I want it.
2) No sugar, milk, butter when cooking or seasoning
3) Menstrual first aid kit will include extra-dark chocolate and recipes for raw desert.

I'm hoping to lose 20-25 lbs in 6 weeks, and drop 2 sizes. Hopefully all this will happen before my 25 birthday at the end of June! Wish me luck. I'll be here!
