I'm officially going to the Woodstock Fruit Festival! Yeahhh! :D
The WFF is August 20-28. By that time, I am going to look HOT in a bikini.
Who's with me?
You don't actually have to be going to the WFF to take part. :)
Just post here for some love and support! <3
For those of you who are having trouble sticking to this lifestyle for whatever reason, whether undereating or lack of motivation or what-have-you, I'm proposing a challenge.
Beginning May first (or whenever!) until August thirty-first (and after!), let's strive to be the best we can be. The main goal here is to be 100% raw, and in addition add whatever personal goals you'd like to achieve in the upcoming months.
I personally am going to strive to:
*Be 100% raw (overt free)
*Eat my veggies
*Consistently wake up early (around five am)
*Be active (see how I didn't say exercise :p) six days a week, at least five.
*(Bonus points) learn a musical instrument haha. :)
Let's get to it! Post here whenever you want, every day or every week or whatever! Let us know how you're doing and what you are accomplishing. :)
Also, this is a good discussion for logging your fitness stuffs. :)
How many smiley faces am I allowed to use?
Update: I've been doing Freelee's challenge on Facebook. Much more organized! lol. :)
Ah yeah. I thought I couldn't go this year, but I didn't realize there was a payment plan! I'm definitely budgeting right now, but it'll be so worth it. I'm so excited. :) Please come next year!
Hey fruities. :)
I went running yesterday. I wore shorts in public for the first time in a few years. I had the best watermelon smoothie ever (blend fresh with frozen watermelon :)).
How are you guys doing? :D
I'm making sure to get outside every day (okay I've only done it yesterday so far, and about to go out for a walk/run in a bit), and the sunshine feels so good. I absolutely love being outdoors, but I haven't been doing it often enough. I'm talking a couple times a month. :0 I'm getting out there EVERY SINGLE DAY. I am I am. :) Rain or shine. I love it outside, and I can feel a connection when I'm out there that stays with me and keeps my mood and spirit lifted. That Vitamin D, I tell ya.
Go outside and play you guys!
(: (: <3<3 ^_^
I didn't even think about the fact that I actually could rock a bikini this summer if I stick with my low-fat, high-carb raw veganism. Thanks for the challenge! I'm up to it!
Let's do it! I'm going to do my best. :D
I'm a little embarrassed to post a before photo, so maybe I'll post one when I have the 'after'. :p
There is no way I'd post a before photo. Ha!
All I will say is that I'm 5'8" and 145 pounds and just getting over a recent breakup with a wonderful man who unfortunately drank a ton of beer, smoked a mess of cigarettes, and smoked weed. Instead of drowning myself in cooked vegan food and organic wine like I usually do (especially after last year's countless dating fumbles), I've come back around to 80/10/10. All I ever do is rave about how good I used to feel when I ate this way. Less talk, more rock!
I'm in there like swimwear! (Get it? Get it? Bikini...? Challenge?) :D
Anway... I want to look hotter in my bikini too... and I have yet to decide how the heck I am going to make it to Woodstock financially (have not bought tix)
Haha, yeah I'm working my butt off to pay for it. Banana island out of necessity lol.
It's going to be so great though. :)
An update for the month of May:
*100% raw: Mostly! Probably 90% overall. :) I ate cooked when I ran out of fruit pretty much, because I had upped my calories significantly and kept eating all my bananas lol. Not overt free though, a couple times a week I had some nuts or avocado.
*Veggies: Getting there! I had been having trouble digesting some greens, but I'm working in kale and romaine lettuces alright. :)
*Waking up early/sleep earlier: Notttt so much for May. I'll make that a focus this month. :)
*Being active: Not as much as I want to, but definitely increased. A bigger focus for this month.
*No musical instruments have been learned this month. :o
Also, I'm adding at least an HOUR outside every day. Whether walking, running, sitting reading a book, whatever. I will be out in the sunshine for at least an hour each day! I would love to spend all day outside.
So my goals for the month of June: Early nights, wake up early, spend time outdoors, be active, and READ more (I love reading but have been "busy" - what a silly excuse!). This month is no excuses! :)
How is everyone else doing?
Doing about the same as last month so far. I'm ready to challenge myself, to do this all the way. :)
I'm thinking about starting a website/blog, maybe make some money from it to buy all my fruit. :p lol. I guess I could work on public speaking and make some videos as well. The more of us doing it the better, right? :) Get the word out there, professional or not. I want everyone to know about this wonderful way of living. <3
I'll post a link as soon as I have everything going. I feel like I'd be more likely to post dailyish on my own blog. I'll link it to my blog here too. I want it to reach as many people as possible. :)
