Raw food - Day 1

Beginning of day 1 of the 14 day plan.  Started off well at the gym.  I know the first couple of days will be the hardest.  I am already craving sugar (one of the reasons for trying this!).  I knew I would, but if I persevere the craving goes away - Right?!!  Hope so.
Anyway.  Didn't much like breakfast.  Being a muesli girl to have to eat smoked salmon, egg and spinach for breakfast was really hard let me tell you.


I was allowed a couple of nuts (4 -6 to be precise) for a snack, and the lunch on day 1 was salad with a piece of grilled fish.



That's the salad part.  I'm not hungry as such, but the idea is to not focus on the food as well I think.  Try and get myself into a mindset that it is for nourishment and only occasionally for indulgence!
I am mainly doing this to feel well and not feel as though I am just dragging myself through the day sometimes.
I am not allowed alcohol or coffee during the 14 days, but I am going to cheat a bit with the coffee.  If I had to give up both red wine and coffee all at the same time - believe me - you would not want to know me!  I will cut down though.
So - let's see how I go.  It is only half way through day one :0)
