banana/dayri date smoothie for breakfast. No lunch, stomach-ache. Mangoes mid afternoon. banana/khadrawi date smoothie for dinner. Less calories today than usual. No salad, either, I wasn't craving it.
9 minutes of jogging outdoors. I'm pretty sure that wound up being well over a mile, and that's the longest outside jog i've taken in over 14 years. (I've done treadmill for longer, but not outside)
40 push ups
6 miles on the bicycle.
Last night, after my blog, my girlfriend made her dinner. She usually makes more than she needs, thinking of me, and she made a completely raw dish, too. It was a really good various fruit and veggie salad, with tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, etc, but she had hers over tostadas, and i had a couple! About 60 fat calories from oil, according to the label. I'm glad i did it, though. Why? Because it made my stomach feel like crap today! Not only did i have the cooked food i shouldn't have had, i had too much food, and too late at night. It didn't digest right, and it was still with me when i went to work in the morning. It's easy to avoid something that makes me feel crappy.
I've decided that i carry on with my 30 days raw, despite this. My purpose in doing this was to teach myself a better diet more optimized for fitness, and i'm going to continue down that path, regardless of screw-ups. Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say. Changing 30 years of bad habits isn't going to be an overnight process, so i continue on the path.
FITNESS AND HEALTH
I'm discovering that my commitment to daily fitness is of utmost importance in sticking to this diet. I have no energy for jogging when i fill my body with fats, and when i don't jog, i'm more likely to fill my body with fats. It can be a vicious cycle that i'm all too familiar with. But it can work to my advantage. When i do jog, i have the desire to eat healthy, and when i healthy, i have the desire to jog.
