30 Bananas a Day!

My weight has edged up to 136 - Returning to the Raw Till 4 Diet

I've entered a "fruit-less" depression since leaving Hawaii.

It's not that cheap fruit cannot be found in NYC. Just the other day I photographed the bounty I brought in from fruit stands, foraging, and Union Square Greenmarket for under $20.

Who says fruit has to be expensive in Nyc? I got all this for less than$20.

However, nothing beats the taste of produce on the West Coast, especially when I can find fresh, amazingly sweet papayas in Hawaii for about $.60 each. Here I must make do with the less sweet, larger, but more expensive $4 papayas, which I just yet haven't worked up the heart to spend that much money on.

Instead, it's been a return to eating lots of bananas and banana ice cream - apples and oranges - fruit that are easy to find and cheap in NYC.

Freezing bananas to make banana ice cream

So I've been cheating.

  • Drinking diet coke
  • Eating salty dim sum after my friend and I went out to eat in Chinatown after dominating our Escape the Room challenge
  • Probably going above the 10% fat calorie ratio I'm supposed to have in my diet

I'm a failure!

And it's showing...

It's not terribly evident to others, but damn that dress I love all of the sudden is tight!

Ok. Maybe you can't see it in this picture of my last night.

The result of regular fitness and healthy eating

But I'm up from 132 to 136 and my belly is a little jiggly.

So it's time to take action!

More regular and longer walks with dogs

Purchased these nearly new for $30 at the Williamsburg Buffalo Exchange!

New sneakers to help me avoid injuring myself as I recently did.

And generally sticking to the principles of Raw Till 4.

I'll keep you posted on my return to my tighter, makes-me-happier shape.


Happiness versus indulgence.

Thanks for your feedback! Rare circumstance that I use unripe bananas, but sometimes I get desperate!
