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.

Sleep: 12 hours. When I got out of bed and looked at the clock, I was like, “What the *#^% ?!?”
I'm not even gonna give that a smiley face, 'cause that's put me behind the eight-ball with today's activities.
After such a big day yesterday, and such a big sleep, I thought I had better weigh myself again.
Damn, I've lost weight again.

Only have 3 Sapote left and I've been eating 3-4 of them per meal. They are really, really big ones so if I'm lucky they might last for 2 meals.

Posting this here too, for onsistency, although I was, for the first time since starting, able to post easily on facebook.
I think about 7 hours sleep. This is much more than usual, that I'm getting 7 hours most days.
Out for a nice early mile run with the puppy. Very quiet early Sunday morning. Fun. Then a little later, about a quarter mile+ walk with my neighbor (91) and then we meditated together. She’s just started doing this, and it’s so sweet!
Drank about a quart of water (pushed myself) and ate figs here and there all morning.
Family member difficult, so unfortunately, no church today.
I am noticing such a sense of peace, that even if disturbed returns quickly. Interesting because the main difference is no seaweed (salt).
Midday: some mango.
Afternoon made double salad for then and tonight:
Dinosaur kale, the same ‘green rose’ lettuce, Robbie’s cucumber, leek, onion, papaya, mango, avocado, basil.
Let's see if this actually posts here, as I haven't been able to do it before and have been posting on the website (that page is frozen, so I clicked in Zorica's email and here I am ...
