3 Days 100% RAW

Just finished Burn It Off and Recharge. I sweated as if I had stepped into a sauna!! It was nuts!! he he he...
But listen!! My stomach is out of control!! Yeah!! Somewhere along the lines of my break between the CE Program (when I hurt my back) I gained some weight. My jeans are fitting way tighter, I have a "bulge" and when I was working out tonight... my belly was all over the place!! No joke! I was soo embarrassed, even though I was the only one in the room... I just felt so disgusting :(
I feel like I can look really good one day... and then a couple days later, look not so good. My jeans can fit completely different from the day before (weird) and my stomach will all of a sudden STICK OUT!!! What is wrong with me!! Lol
I cut out my carbs (the white flour kind) a few days ago, so far so good. I actually don't have a desire for it which is nice. But now I'm feeling like I need a really good "jump start." I need to get down and dirty on a strict eating plan for the next few days to hopefully get an inch or two (crossing my fingers!!) off! Is it possible? We'll see.
The best way I know of to really jump start my metabolism and body is A: extreme exercising (Check!) and B: 100% RAW.

Here's my plan:
Along side my daily workouts to ChaLEAN Extreme, I'm gonna go 100% RAW. I'm starting in the morning (wednesday) and I'm gonna finish on Friday night. A total of 3 days. Depending on how I feel, I might carry it on through out the weekend... we'll see ;)

But the goal is to be 100%!!!
I have a GREAT support team though... a sassy gal that is the "know it all" of RAW food living, Kristen of Kristens RAW. YEP!! I'm one lucky ass chick to get the encouragement and support of the RAW "hollywood" star. She's incredible!!

I'm gonna keep my RAW food eating simple. Meaning that i'm not going as far as dehydrating foods or juicing. Well, I would juice, but my juicer is packed away in a box right now. So I'll be eating fresh fruits and smoothies.... uumm... LOTS OF THEM!! he he he....

I'll keep you all posted! Cross your fingers I see results and a PHENOMINAL change! All I want right now is to wear my jeans and not ROLL OVER the top of them! yeah, I think they call that "muffin top!!" none of that!! Lol.

Good luck on your 100% raw quest! You can so totally do it!!! It's still not warm enough here for me to go 100%... I'm sticking to my green smoothies for breakfast, fresh fruit for snacks, and raw salad for dinner... but lunch just has to be cooked. For now, anyway!

I've started counting my calories again this week, and like you, I've limited my processed food in preparation for starting ChaLEAN Extreme. And guess what? It arrives today!!!!!!!!

I'm so freakin' excited!!!!

We'll be great motivators for eachother!! :))
