Remember if you are not on facebook you could still post your daily journal here. Here is the post from Facebook --->
Time to get your raw on folks! For the next 30 days, EACH DAY please come here and record what you eat, your exercise, water and sleep and encourage others to stay on track. This challenge is only for HIGH CARB raw vegans, 811-style. No superfoods or powders, salt thanks. Example is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtxFC4LHnKo
* Not only the joy of being 100% raw for 30 days but as motivation --> those who honestly stay on track for the 30 days and post here everyday (without fail) will get a free copy of my upcoming ebook!
* If you fall off the wagon please don't post about it here because it can negatively affect others on the challenge. Posts like that may be removed to help keep the high vibe.
* You must be 100% raw and post here EVERY DAY for the next 30 days to receive the free ebook. You *must* use the same thread day after day so I can read your journal. Journals that are all over the place cannot be accepted.

Looking at the numbers, I'm not sure I ate enough today, but I feel ok. I never really got hungry today at all.
Another day of feeling very relaxed and laid back, but strong at the same time. I had an epic weight training session and actually hit multiple records today. The whole rest of the day I just sat on my backside.
I've finally decided what bike I want to buy, but it will be a few weeks until I can get it. That's pretty much the whole reason I've been lounging around lately. I'm so excited to get on the bike that I don't really feel like doing anything else until I get the bike.

Feeling - simply happy! I love this lifestyle! I can't believe I'm eating that much now when it used to be so tough to reach 2000 calories. Even if I know more calories would be optimal, I'm quite proud of myself today.
