Remember if you are not on facebook you could still post your daily journal here. Here is the post from Facebook --->
Time to get your raw on folks! For the next 30 days, EACH DAY please come here and record what you eat, your exercise, water and sleep and encourage others to stay on track. This challenge is only for HIGH CARB raw vegans, 811-style. No superfoods or powders, salt thanks. Example is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtxFC4LHnKo
* Not only the joy of being 100% raw for 30 days but as motivation --> those who honestly stay on track for the 30 days and post here everyday (without fail) will get a free copy of my upcoming ebook!
* If you fall off the wagon please don't post about it here because it can negatively affect others on the challenge. Posts like that may be removed to help keep the high vibe.
* You must be 100% raw and post here EVERY DAY for the next 30 days to receive the free ebook. You *must* use the same thread day after day so I can read your journal. Journals that are all over the place cannot be accepted.

Feeling: Ok, but kind of anxious, very sad. I stayed up way too late last night crying. I just found out that my bestest, best friend has breast cancer and will be undergoing the next year of treatment. But, I did not give in to stress and cheat. So, for that I'm very proud of myself. But, this has just become more of a challenge for me. If only I could give her all my knowledge regarding healthier eating and maybe even juicing, she would possibly recover better, sooner or even just get rid of it all together. That is my hope. I'm heading over there to spend the afternoon with her. So, exercise might not happen today.
To all here on the challenge, keep going & keep up the good work. Feel great and have an awesome day!
I'm so sorry about your best friend. (((hugs))) Let her know how good you feel physically on this diet and perhaps she'll be interested. Don't push it too hard, though or else it could be counter-productive. Take care.
Thank you so much!! :)
Maybe share Ruth Heidrich's story with her? She's a member here. ....ana xoxo
Thank you too! I will check it out. :)

Water: 4 litres (it's extremely hot in Paris today)
Exercise: I've walked for 3 hours (exploring Montmartre - I had a wonderful time).
Sleep: 7 hours - I felt very rested this morning. I suppose the 15-minute yoga helped a lot yesterday evening. I'll do it tonight again.
Feeling: I'm feeling healthy, alive, happy! I got my 5kg-box of Medjool dates! It cost a fortune but it's so worth it! I wonder how long it'll last...
I hope everybody else is having as much fun as I am. I'm actually considering studying raw food - I'd love to be a better chef.
Bfast (or actually a brunch): 1 kg of watermelon
Snack: 9 bananas
Dinner: 1 kg of watermelon
Total calories: 1440
Sleep: 9,5 hours last night
Exercice: I woke up late, and first thing, I went jogging easy for 30 minutes. Later, in the afternoon, I rode my bike for 20 minutes.
Water: 6 litres !! Yes, I really did drink that much ! I can't believe it ! It's so hot here, and I also lost a lot of water when I execiced so I guess I needed it !
Feelings: Feeling okay, but I think I should have eaten more.I noticed it's way too few calories when I entered my meals into Cronometer. But, anyway, I felt so good running ! I'm happy about that because I'd stopped running for an entire year !
