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.

It was almost my first real home-made smoothie and I screwed it up a bit (I didn't blend it well) so it didn't taste as good as I expected. All the dates were stuck at the bottom of the blender :(

Hi Freelee, I might have missed my eBook, never mind but i had such a busy day yesterday, there was so many people here that i thought i'll write in the morning but it is now afternoon, i still have a visitor now and i am now ignoring him in order to write to you.
Yesterday 10th day started with logan berries from the garden, cherries and grapes, middle of summer all the fruits are cheap and in abundance to find at the moment, luckily as the weather is just as bad for the time being, rain rain and more rain.
Then apples pear and salad smoothie followed by sliced bananasandgrapes
Next meal salad of celery sweetpotatoe tomatoes and slices of cucumber, radishes, baby corns
Last meal : bananas smoothie with Romaine and 2 peaches and 2 glasses of water, had a good night sleep, perhaps i need slightly less sleep than when eating cooked food.
Today 11th day of the challenge, pretty much the same than yesterday in the morning, the salad that i am eating now the same plus China Rose radish sprouts, much too strong for my taste, and celery.
Till tonight for the rest
2 kg melon honeydew
1 kg strawberries
total ~3000 cals
Water: 3 litres
Sleep: 11 hrs
Feelings: a little sleepy even after 11 hrs of sleep...guess because last night only 5 hrs, but yesterday I felt great all day long...
