I have lost account of the days since i lost quite a chunk during the challenge bc computer troubles. Still eating raw and would like to do the next challenge as i found the first one very helpful - thank you Freelee - I know i didn't follow the rules properly (calories, forgot to say how much i drink and maybe more), i didnt seem to have time to write my report until last thing at night when i was to tired to think. But also i have my own methods which work to some extend and it is difficult to change also bc of limits of shopping here. No watermelon here and very few exotics.

I have acquired a belly in the last few months before the challenge eating non gluten cereals and stuffing myself with rice quinoa buckwheat etc and dont seem to manage to loose it, i wonder if i should fast for a day or two, not easy in the middle of the summer that we are here. I find it surprising in fact that there is no sign of loosing it, i have hardly been having any fatty stuff at all apart from 1/2 small avocado occasionally and a few hazelnuts once or twice a week, none at all recently, perhaps my body is doing that in my best interest to stop me from going back to cooked so i am not too easily satisfied and keep on working at it until the habit of eating raw is well installed. Love to all of you.

I just came back from vacation where I couldn't log in, so here's is day 23 to 30 :)

Hi Freelee,

Don't have facebook, so am posting here instead. Don't know if this challenge is still up and running? but here i am........ fair fat and forty........(sighs) and raring to give this way of eating a real good go!

Exercise:    One thing at a time. Just focused on the food today.

Sleep:        6 hours (thats very good for me)

                 Okay i've completed day one. Thirty to go........

══════════════ ღ☃ღೋ════════════

Exercise:    20mins gentle walk

Sleep:        6 hours (thats very good for me)

Mood:       Fluctuating.....sometimes feeling quite positive, sometimes feeling i can't do this (shrugs)....    

                 Okay i've completed day two. Twentynine to go........

Exercise:    clean the car (does that count) shrugs!

Sleep:        6 hours (thats very good for me)

Mood:       Mostly positive today. Odd cravings for the "old food".....managed to switch those thoughts off. Had 3 days off work, so its been easier to stick to this way of eating, because i've had no distractions. The challenge really starts tomorrow after i go back to work. Temptations all over the place!   

                 

DAY FOUR

List of food eaten today:

Australian bottled 'nudie' orange juice 2L

Dates 213g

Bananas 770g

watermelon 900g

Total:    2432Kcal


══════════════ ღ☃ღೋ════════════

Water:        1L 

Exercise:    none

Sleep:        5-6 hours 

Mood:       Back at work, so a challenge with biscuits, donuts etc lying around work area. Heck it was hard trying to ignore them.  Tried not to make such a big deal out of it and just get on with my day like the food wasn't a problem.  Actually felt quite pleased with myself after getting home after work and not touching anything other than my fruit. So it was pretty encouraging to know i am only day 4 and managed to keep on track. 

If there was any discouragement today it was still feeling like i'm finding it difficult to get those calories up throughout the day. Will visit this site more and gain as much info as i can. I'm so keen to stick this. Need to develop my pallet towards this healthy fresh food. Can't say i'm feeling overly vibrant or lighter - but its only day four and at this time i am in a positive frame of mind to continue. I need to continue! Horrible rash has appeared on lower legs - almost like eczema! Jeez =(  and loose bowel motions.  But am hoping that this is all part of the detox process.

Not really computer savvy so i don't know if i'm posting this in the right place? Something about posting in the same thread? Don't even know if Freelee is even doing this challenge anymore - was it just a one off, as noticed this was posted over a year ago?

Doing really well MLP!  The rash does sound like detox.  Stick with it, you'll start to feel great soon. :)
