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.

Less than 20 min ride on my new Trek
Missing today's weight training. Normally Lat/Back day, but I skipped it to go for a ride instead.
I'll do it tomorrow.
My crap is starting to look just like Sapote, so I only ate one today. I'll have to shove a few down tomorrow, though. I have 14 or more ripe.
So today is a bit problematic because I am running out of food & have to wait until tomorrow to go to the grocery store! I know this is not going to be enough calories but I'm just going to try my best with what I have to work with here and tomorrow will be much better. At least I only have raw foods in my house and no way of ordering take-out.
Breakfast:Tropical Smoothie (521 cal)
Lunch: mini Tropical Smoothie (303 cal)
Snacks: pistachios (130 cal)
Water: 3 liters
Exercise: 1 hr. walking, 20 min. pilates

Feelings: Hope today isn't TOO difficult, but I'm sure tomorrow will be much easier.

Replying to Dandelion, thanks so much for advice. I am following the hygienist idea that we spend the night eliminating and if we have anything in the morning all the powers-to-be of our body leave the elimination process and rush to digest what is arriving, so it's a good idea to leave it as long as we can manage, especially if we have things to eliminate, which is the case with me as i things went wrong after a long fast in February and very cold March, weak after the fast i started eating too much to handle the cold (not much heating where i was) and went on to total boulimia, it's a danger after a fast if it not handled right. I was eating a lot of raw but 1 cooked meal a day when i stuffed myself. Since the challenge things are certainly improving. I know i should not eat sweet potatoes and mushroom but at the moment it's replacing cooked, i am aiming at stopping them.
Yes perhaps i should eat more carbs, i will try. Thanks truly.
