Finishing DAY 30! (part 2)

For the evening again lots of tomatoes and baby spinich, avo.
Today Friday, 6th day of the raw challenge, not easy to remember at this stage!
Started with my 4 apples1 pear and Romaine smoothie, life has been a bit hectic recently and i keep forgetting to add some plants growing naturally outside for photons but a different one every day so as not to risk being poisoned with the same poison every day. I am going to start with nettle tops and lemon balm tops but will try other wild plants too that grow and get benefit from the sun, in the winter i was using bitter cress which is not so bitter at all.
Later i had 4 bananas with blue berries.
Later again took my bowl of salad with me in a journey with someone else driving. salad of sweet potatoes+ cuc+3 tomatoes+lettuce+1/2 red pepper. and 3 bananas
Full Blendtec jug of Romaine+carots+4 sliced bananas and another 2 bananas
9 hours sleep
Feeling fine, have already lost some weight and am beginning to look a bit too skinny, which is a bit of a problem (for the looks) and has happened before, so i must make an effort to do some exercise to build some muscles, a lot to remember...

EXERCISE: 27.44 mi on the bike today cycling with my training partner. Really pushed it cycling today, was really happy about that. Got home and just wanted to wind down and sleep after having a smoothie.
FEELINGS: Used the Garmin for the first time today. VERY happy to have a wealth of accurate objective information at my fingertips for every ride/run.
And this morning... I hit, weight-wise, the 130's! The 139lbs is a huge benchmark for me, showing I'm going in the right direction. I can't even tell you the things I've done in the past just to lose weight...I haven't lost weight this quickly since I was water fasting. Anyway, was really happy with pushing it on the bike today too.
Was going to get up at 6 to go biking with training buddy but decided get more sleep and I'm so happy about that, it really paid off later in the day.
You know, we watched the female Olympic gymnastic trials when my bf made a point to say that people place too much emphasis on weight, and that I'm beautiful, and that- just makes me want to be my best. It was really nice to hear he just wants me to be happy.. Good to know the bf has your back and loves WHO you are. Its that kind of supportive attitude that helps me to become my best. I'm glad I'm doing 811 too, the right food and the work to make my life better, to clean up my diet, my body, my mind; to get lighter for cycling; to look like I exercise the amount I do, to feel and look great, to be an example for the movement, and to be the slim, happy and fit person I see in my mind and know I can and will be. A day at a time.
Breakfast: 0.5 watermelon
Lunch: the rest of the watermelon
Snacks (at a party): Carrot sticks, brocoli, cherry tomatoes, many wedges of watermelon and 3 peaches
Dinner: Romaine with carrots, scallions, cucumbers and tahini/lemon dressing
Water: 1 L
Sleep: 7 ish
Exercise: Swimming for fun
Feelings: I had a lot of energy, had no cravings for the other foods at the cook out (even though they had veggie burgers and blackbeans and rice). I am going to continue on my watermelon kick...as it seems to work out well for me. However, my goal is to put away a whole one by lunch. I found it easier to blend it into a drink.
