Cloudy days & coffee shops

I tend to get trapped in my every day routine of going to work, coming home, and repeating EVERY day. Yesterday I decided to take a trip to this little coffee shop & bakery in my town. I’ve been here a couple times since it has been open. I absolutely love looking around at all the bread, desserts and coffees. They have a little section where they sell things from local companies which is awesome.

If you ever find yourself in central NC. You NEED to take a stop at The Table!


The Table

I was so excited to FINALLY get a chance to visit this place. The Table is a bakery, market, as well as a restaurant. I’ve visited it 3 times now since it has open. I live in a smallish town in the middle of North Carolina (where the North Carolina zoo is) so when anything new opens it is ALWAYS exciting! So one day after work I decided to visit.

Eating Raw

For the past couple months I’ve been debating (yes sadly, debating) on changing my diet…again. Let’s back track a little bit. A few years ago I weighed over 350lbs. I never really noticed exactly HOW big I was until I had to take my measurements for a prom dress. So, after I graduated high school, I changed how I ate and lost well over 80lbs. I also lost about 20 inches off of my body. My weight has gone up and down these past 4 or so years.

Lately I’ve taken little baby steps in changing what I eat or cutting things out of my diet and I’ve noticed how much my skin has cleared up and how much better I feel. But, I know that I can eat even more healthier than I already do. So, recently I have been debating about eating a raw diet. I’m not one to really care about meat, so I know it won’t be that big of a deal for me; however, not being able to have coffee is going to KILL me. I live on coffee since I have to be at work EARLY in the morning. Also, I live in the south so I live off of sweet tea…which I also won’t be able to drink. I know this is going to be VERY hard and also a very drastic diet change but, I’m up for it.

I’ll keep y’all filled on about how it goes and some awesome raw recipes I find on my journey.
