Hi Amanda ! I agree with the positive effect os working out ! Definitely stimulating the whole body ! Wow !!! Vibrams !!! How are yours ? Love the comfort and the freedom, it feels weird to put "normal" shoes on after them !!! Which on did you get ?
I can't really find good dates here in my country :( i've been eating these dates that come in a bag. It says Dried Soft Dates. But I'm a little scared that there are preservatives in them, or added sugar. It doesn't say anything like that on the label of the bag though.... but those i've been eating and they are amazing :)
Hi Amanda ! They did, no doubt about it ! the afternoon are really hot and I drink a lot to keep hydrated, fruits are certainly helping deal with it. I am currently in Port Hedland in Western Australia and moving down to Karratha hopefully in a few days. I love the vibrams. I messed up with both my big toes years agao while trekking with some of my pupils and since then it 's been hard to find sports shoes that are not hurting me. the vibrams are just amazing for that, the toes are large enough to fit mine and it gives a lot of freedom. I am wearing the trek right now and they are not the good match for dusty environment like here, I got a blister, can you believe that ? They have little holes in the fabric on top of the feet and the dust and red sand get in and then rub on my feet and it is far from pleasant but I splashed them and in wet environment they are just great. I think they would be amazing if I was trekking in a tropical environment. I have a older pair of bikila and I have been in love with them and wearing them for everything from housekeeping ( fast cardio ruthm ) to biking and trail walking/ running. they are amazing and they are made with a soft fabric that doen't hurt the feet at all. Vibrams can be machine washed so they are really easy to use. I wear mine with no socks and wash them in the sink with my sponge and they are great. They are light weighted and allow you to feel every detail of the trail or track you are on. They are also extremely flexible and although I got a blister it was under the foot from the rubbing but they don't give blisters on the usual spots with sports shoes. You can easily pack your bags with one or two or three pairs, light weight, flexible, easy to carry and wash and easy to get in and out. Just the first time is a bit awkward.
I feel freedom, lightness, I can run and walk faster because it is like being barefoot. After each trip with the trek I feel like my legs worked a lot more than with other sports shoes and I also noticed that my feet are better ( no fluid retention, no pain after the work out even if I pushed hard and had pain during the work out ).
I've been a bit long, really hope this can help... :-)
hey Amanda ! I had a crazy trip but eventually made it to destination where it is dry and hot like hell !!! Luckily the supermarket is packed up with varieties of fruits so I have been diving into it to recover from the trip ! I am looking forward to relax and start enjoying the holiday ! how are you doing ?
LOL ! I love the stuffing part, it is the first time in 21 years I eat happily and plenty of food and I DON'T FEEL GUILTY, oh My God ! This is precious !
I love my breast and was worried they would shrink from removing the extra weight but read plenty of posts here with fruity girls that kept their breast the same or had in increase... mine got bigger a bit, hope they won't melt...
The bananas are becoming rare, I only find some in a little shop, all the bigger shops are not selling it anymore... Luckily I've got a huge bag of dates !!! How was your fruity day ? Sending you fruity positive vibes to use whenever needed !!! see you !!
I am settling down slowly slowly into the new lifestyle learning new things everyday. It is a very special and unique time in my existence. I used to starve myself for years and now I am on the only diet in the world that says : stuff yourself with fruits until your tummy looks like an elephant's one, it will you glow, be happy, run faster and longer and your boobs will grow instead of deflating like dried prunes... LOL it is quite miraculous !!!
So I still have cravings and am not yet 100 % raw but I am a happy transitioning fruitarian !
