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.
* Please set out your journal like this :
Bfast: 10 banana smoothie
Lunch: 1 head of iceberg lettuce with 20 dates
Dinner: 1/2 jakfruit (med) and a kg of snow peas
(good to include calories)
Exercise: 10km easy jog
Sleep: 9 hrs.
Breakfast: Ate 10 bananas while helping mum on her market stall. A few nuts from her stall seemed to make their way into my mouth too :-/ --> 1100
Lunch: 1 litre of Oj followed by 12 dates --> 900 cals
Entree: 100grams of dried jak --> 300
Dinner: Another 3 bananas chopped into a salad with date pieces and date sauce --> 600
Total around 2900 calories
Water: 3 litres
Exercise: Nothing today, hill sprints tomorrow XD
Sleep: 9hrs (always seem to get this much)
Feelings: A little pissed off today lol couldn't quite put my finger on it but I just felt irritated. Partly it was when I read about some fb folks blaming fruit for their teeth problems it really rubs me the wrong way, I feel like the defender of fruit. I feel very protective of fruit because I know she is innocent every time.
I also think the creative salads at night aren't always digesting a breeze. I'm getting a little attached to lemon juice lately and it's not the best thing. I go through phases, like I always do I"m going to replace it with Orange juice instead. Other than that pretty chilled out day.
Breakfast: After my hill reps had of course 2 litres of OJ (with lemonade fruit too) --> 1000 cals (about 20 fruit or 4kg)
Lunch: 10 gold kiwi's --> 500
Entree: Dried Organic apricots (SO good) --> About 100 grams
Dinner: 9 Banana smoothie with celery, Man bananas are amazing, I don't know where I would be without them. --> 900
Total around 2700 cals
Water: 3.5 litres
Exercise: 20 HILL REPS YEH BABY! I was thinking today 'why do I love these so much?' and the answer came to me almost instantly - HGH (human growth hormone release) that and serotonin release. Just love the fast and fierce stuff.
Feelings: Been snacking on a bit of dried fruit these days but it's sooo good because mum runs an organic fruit and nut business so I get it on tap. Been working on the ebook today and I've designed this beautiful daily schedule, it's all really coming together and I LOVE the creation process.
Breakfast: 7 bananas
Lunch: 6 bananas and 2 apples
