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.

Keep up the awesome work everyone, have a very Nice Fruity Week #2!!
I posted the jahority of the day earlier and can't find it!
Do my best to recreate it:
About 7 hours
Drank about a quart of Oj then went for a 1 mile run. Really nice.
Came back to eat whatever figs were ripe; I think 2 or 3
Then another wonderful Haitian mango, and then another!
Church then home to swim
my new favorite salad of mango, tomato, minced kale and avocado.
Brief swim, some tree pruning. Most of day (wonderful) spent listening for Guidance and transcribing it.
A remake double size of the salad above with spinach too!
Going for another swim. Very wonderfully hot here.
As I reread my posts I can't believe the misspellings. And I'm a transcriber! Too funny!
Am just loving doing this with so many wonderful Others!
Thank You Freelee and All.
Just wish I could keep tranck of my posts here so they'd be in order!
Just remembered 2 bananas in the morning and 2 in the late afternoon. Our new box isn't ripe enough for me, although my daughter downed about 18 of them!
Starting early today with a pint of orange juice.
Slept about 2 hours before being awakened by a relative having a persistent scene, which is ongoing so got up to listen for Guidance, and decided to start the day.
Read some of the 30bad emails and Patty Lager about how her face looks better. She looks good in all of them to me (since I'm a grandmother!). And I'm noticing the same thing, which happens when I go on a juice fast (no salt). I don't use salt, and ordinarily eat a lot of seaweed. I'm not gourmet vegan though.
After church a friend suddenly commented on how cute my daughter (who's in her 40's) and I looked! Now she's been vegan since she was 7 and raw for about 20 years of her life, and gets mistaken for a child or teenager. But me cute! I love it!
I've been vegan 38 years and raw the past 9 (very stressful years). And I am almost always peaceful and happy. This is almost better than looking cute.
Got about 3 more hours sleep before being awakened again. Feel great though. Went out and ran with one of the dogs. Felt really good.Beautiful morning here. Motivated to clean and lay more rubber tile flooring (cool stuff) and go through giant stack of papers for filing!
Finished the rest of the quart of orange juice and the last couple of fresh figs. Not hungry at all though, nor thirsty.
That mango, tomato, kale and avocado salad sounds good I'm going to try it maybe tomorrow
Day 7 (losing count - lol)
Breakfast: Banana-strawberry smoothie
Lunch: "Burger" (radish, mushroom, carrot, sundried tom, cilantro, scallions) with avocado dressing (avocado, dates, scallions) on lettuce and an apple
Dinner: Head of romaine (cucumbers, red beets, scallions) w/tahini and lemon juice and a peach
Water: Barely a liter I'm sure
Sleep: 6 hours *ugh!
Feelings: Missed cooked food today. However, I stuck to my gunz. I am happy I did. Watched some uplifting 30 BAD vids. And I am ready for tommorow. I am starting work (after a year at home). I have watermelon pureed for the morning. And for lunch I packed bananas, cherries, apples and peaches. I am sure I will get some questions about my lunch. I will be promoting 801010! LOL. I was so sleepy today --- headed to bed now (930)
AM: banana smoothie, then
10 date datorade
3 pm: 2+ lbs red grapes, then
6 pm: 10 peaches
7:30 pm Salad: romaine, celery, cucumber, 1/3 avocado, lime juice, parsley, sprinkle of hemp seeds
9:30: 5 date datorade (seemed to help kick a craving)
Calories: 3300 according to cronometer, but I'm skeptical.
Water: a couple litres
Sleep: 8 1/2 hours
Exercise: 40 minutes quick walking- felt great
Feelings: Feeling pretty good, calm and focused. Starting to feel and look less puffy. Had a good 3 hours stretch in the evening when I was fighting cravings, but got through it. :)
