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.

I obviously needed a reminder about not eating too late! I went to bed within 30 mins of having a 10 banana smoothie and because I hadn't exercised for 48 hrs my metabolism was in relaxation mode rather than burn so everything was slower. Woke up and ran my heart out in a 5km race and felt like chundering most of the race, it was REALLY hard for me to keep going. Between that and the strong gusty wind i was at my max. Got a bit slow today with 21.24. Sub 20mins will be mine! Feeling better now.
