30 Bananas a Day!

This is a list of reasons as to why I have decided to commit to Banana Island.

I have found lately that even after two years raw vegan, during the last 8 months HCRV.
I have some lingering behaviours from previous lifestyle(s) that continue to creep in/around every now and disable me from reaching optimum health/potential.

This type of behaviour in my diet is born of the thought “reward”, I will (in my thoughts) create a reason as to why I should “reward” myself with something “naughty” ie Heavy nut meal, Tamari, poor food combinations etc.

Now don’t get me wrong I don’t create guilt after these experiences or let them tear me in knots. I have just realised that it is time to shine a bit of light on this damaging behaviour as I noticed it in other parts of my life. For example; I will say to myself “I have already studied for 2 hours, why not go watch a Tv show or movie”. It is clear to me that I will never reach my full potential if I continue on in this mindless self-destructive behaviour.

Now, it is all good to sit and enjoy a movie but at cost of personal growth….. I am not convinced!
There is constantly a thought lingering as to why I should do something else other than what I am doing in that present moment and that is the problem!
I really don’t see it as a “reward” to destroy/harm myself with a justification of how good i have been and it is time to hit it on the head.

This behaviour is a form of thought control coming from the standards of another man or women and is designed to keep me feeding my energy into their dreams, the majority of these “dreams” do not come from a man/woman who has my best interests at heart or health in mind.
So these are a few of motivations to commit to banana Island for 12 days (minimum) ;
 

  • More energy toward my disciplines, such as running/cycling, composing/performing music
  • Take a bit of time to recognise small habits with food and behaviour
    (this will be achieved by limiting myself to bananas only, so when I walk around looking for a distraction in the cupboard I will be forced to deal with my thoughts instead of replacing them with sensation)
  • Reset my tastebuds
  • Loose excess fluid
  • Spend less time preparing food
  • Free my body to heal
  • Detox    
  • Be the best healthy example for the sake of the animals and benefit of those around me
  • Save money J
    (recently lost my job L)
  • Give more love and respect to who I am
  • Loose a couple more Kgs
  • Show others what is possible in optimum health

I will keep people informed as I go!
Share with me some of your motivations that keep you disciplined and/or your limitations that you are set on destroying to help motivate myself and others who might be experiencing the same.

Much love to all
Andy
