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.
* Please set out your journal like this :
Bfast: 10 banana smoothie
Lunch: 1 head of iceberg lettuce with 20 dates
Dinner: 1/2 jakfruit (med) and a kg of snow peas
(good to include calories)
Exercise: 10km easy jog
Sleep: 9 hrs.
woke up yet again a lb lighter. So happy.
BK: 1 liter smoothie (4 bananas, 1 cup strawberries, water)
LN: 1.5 fuji apple, 20oz orange juice
DR: 1 liter smoothie ( 3 strawberries, 1 cup blueberries, 5 bananas, 2 cups water)
4 liters water total for today, (1950 cals)
EXERCISE: 27.44 mi on the bike today cycling with my training partner. Really pushed it cycling today, was really happy about that. Got home and just wanted to wind down and sleep after having a smoothie.
FEELINGS: Used the Garmin for the first time today. VERY happy to have a wealth of accurate objective information at my fingertips for every ride/run.
And this morning... I hit, weight-wise, the 130's! The 139lbs is a huge benchmark for me, showing I'm going in the right direction. I can't even tell you the things I've done in the past just to lose weight...I haven't lost weight this quickly since I was water fasting. Anyway, was really happy with pushing it on the bike today too.
Was going to get up at 6 to go biking with training buddy but decided get more sleep and I'm so happy about that, it really paid off later in the day.
You know, we watched the female Olympic gymnastic trials when my bf made a point to say that people place too much emphasis on weight, and that I'm beautiful, and that- just makes me want to be my best. It was really nice to hear he just wants me to be happy.. Good to know the bf has your back and loves WHO you are. Its that kind of supportive attitude that helps me to become my best. I'm glad I'm doing 811 too, the right food and the work to make my life better, to clean up my diet, my body, my mind; to get lighter for cycling; to look like I exercise the amount I do, to feel and look great, to be an example for the movement, and to be the slim, happy and fit person I see in my mind and know I can and will be. A day at a time.
Breakfast: 0.5 watermelon
Lunch: the rest of the watermelon
Snacks (at a party): Carrot sticks, brocoli, cherry tomatoes, many wedges of watermelon and 3 peaches
Dinner: Romaine with carrots, scallions, cucumbers and tahini/lemon dressing
Water: 1 L
Sleep: 7 ish
Exercise: Swimming for fun
Feelings: I had a lot of energy, had no cravings for the other foods at the cook out (even though they had veggie burgers and blackbeans and rice). I am going to continue on my watermelon kick...as it seems to work out well for me. However, my goal is to put away a whole one by lunch. I found it easier to blend it into a drink.
Green Juice ------ 541.02 calories
1 Fennel Bulb
Afternoon -------186.84 calories
5 lg prunes
Evening ---- 600 calories
I tried making an Exotic Pate but I didn't like it in a Nori roll or a collard wrap. I mixed the juice of one orange into some pate to make a dressing for a salad instead . It was ok and I ate it . I don't know how many calories it was. Considering that and the collard wrap I ate with the nori roll it was at least another 500 calories. I feel really full like I've eaten way too much.
I just wanted to say that in order for me to eat 3000 calories I'd have to exercise and right now I do not aside from my daily chores and errands. I will slowly incorporate "exercise" when I'm ready kthanks.
Total calories consumed -------1,327.86
I slept 10 hrs last night and felt really good .

Total Cals: 2160
Water: 2 L
Sleep: 6 hours (little behind need to catch up on some extra zzzz's.
Feelings: Just ok today. Look forward to doing some running on the t-mill tomorrow and getting back to the orange juice. I mixed a few different things in to my banana smoothies and it didn't work to well for me. So, going back to the orange juice, fresh squeezed that is. Yummmm.
Still on it, still feeling that it's an easier way to live than the endless choice of "consumer normality."
Didn't really eat separate meals today - just...
loads of flat peaches (I'm not sure how many)
500g Romaine lettuce with tahini dressing
0.5l orange juice
Around 2000 kcal
About 5 miles walking
8 hours sleep
Got up at 4:30am eek..

A'noon: 1/2 litre of OJ --> 250
Dinner: 20 gold kiwi's ---> 1000 cals
Total around 2350 calories. A little low but that was just due to being fatigued and favoring rest over eating. I can guarantee you though I will make up for it in the next few days!
