I am feeling a bit down in the dumps today. I went on a 5 mile run this morning, which was awesome! But to be completely honest... I am getting kind of sick of fruit :(. I just can't eat enough meet my calorie requirements. I miss being able to go out and eat food with people. I am just not liking this lifestyle today. If anyone has words of encouragement to help me along, it would be much appreciated.
Here's what I ate today:

Good morning everyone,
sorry I skipped yesterday. Now that I am doing the Banana Girl challenge on FB it is hard to maintain 2 blogs. However I really want to keep this one going since this will be my long term journal of my progress.
I am really working hard to get more water into my day. I woke up this morning and had just about 1 litre of water before breakfast. I'm having a half litre for lunch. And I'll have another half litre for dinner.
Ughhh wish I didn't eat all that oil last night! First of all, I got my period today, and a part of my thinks that it came on because of my change in diet yesterday (I don't really know if that can affect your cycle though). The good news is that I made it through the day without a single cramp! And that is a huge deal for me, because I have been on birth control for the past 4 years to try to alleviate my pms pain.
I was extremely gassy and bloaty ALL day. And it was…Continue

Well, I broke down and weighed myself today. I do not own a scale, but my parents have one at their house and I was really interested to see how much I weighed. Just as some background- Over the winter I got to my heaviest at 160, and before that when I was on the HCG diet I got down to 140 and that was the best I've looked in my life. I weighed in at 147 this morning, which is actually exactly where I wanted to be. And now I will not have access to a scale until…Continue
Woke up this morning, had a big cup of OJ- then went on a run! I went with my friend Alison, and we did the same 4.5 miles that I did yesterday. It was awesome- we were averaging 11 min/mile, which for me is really good, and we sprinted up hills. I ran the last 2 miles barefoot too, which always feels awesome. Now I need to make sure that I get in more calories today. I probably should shoot for 2500-3000 calories today.
I am going to visit my grandparents today in Toms River,…Continue

Well I woke up in the morning, made myself some OJ, and then decided to take the pup out for a 4.5 mile run. This was a bad idea, because she had spent all morning running around with the other 2 dogs at home and she was completely burnt out. Half way though, she literally passed out underneath a tree. I had to carry her half the way back. Although to be honest with you, I was so worn out that I was kind of glad to only run 3 miles instead of 4.5. It was so hot and…Continue

Last night, little miss Sophie kept me up ALL night scratching at the door and whining. I did not sleep at all. Then when I woke up, I saw it was pouring so Alison and I decided not to go running (probably for the best after no sleep). We didn't have any oranges in the house, so I ran out first thing to get oranges for my morning OJ. Squeezed about 7 of them up for breakfast, then started away at making lunch for Alison and I. What we had:…Continue

Today my puppy and I travelled back home to New Jersey to visit my family. It was a very good travel day! I started the day with a big ol' glass of OJ (6.5 oranges), and then followed it with a few bananas. I brought some bananas and watermelon juice for the road. I forgot about the juice until I got to the security line, when the guard asked me if I had any liquids on me. I then had to chug 32 oz of watermelon juice in 1 minute- it was epic, and so good! I had 2…Continue

Today felt like such a long day. No running this morning, but I did bike to my garden and do some weeding. I'm not really sure how I feel about the way I ate today. It definitely was not as good as it could have been. First of all, I had a handful of raw kale chips this afternoon, which is not 811 friendly. Then I went to a raw potluck at Washington Park and ate a bit of almond dip, which is also not completely 811 friendly. However besides that, I ate a bunch of…Continue
Good Morning all!
Well this morning started out great! I woke up at 7:30, after a good 8 hours of sleep, drank 8 oz of coconut water, then went for a 5 mile run- with speed intervals! Now, I have been running for a year and a half and have competed in 2 half marathons. I was going to do a full marathon in September, but about two months ago I got a foot injury, and then I started detoxing which left me with little energy to run, so I have been out of commission since then. My…Continue

Well, today is my first day on this website, and I'm very excited to get started!
About a month ago, I picked up the book "Soak Your Nuts" by Karyn Calabrese and immediately started my raw detox. Now, I have been a vegan for a while so going raw really wasn't too much of a challenge for me. Really the only challenge in the past 30 days was all of the supplements I had to take, the 3 day fast, and the lack of alcohol. But now I am done with the…Continue
