95% Raw - 1/25/16

I am back to 95% raw as of 3 days ago.  I have been doing a lot of research on grains in a vegan diet.  For those of us with compromised guts, the grains can be the cause of increased endotoxin regardless of the quality.  I know many successful vegans can eat cooked/grains/beans, etc., but for some of us, it may be too much toxin to handle.  Even though I have been at this going on 3 years, I am a bit older than many people coming to 30bad, so I think I need to do more healing on a raw diet.…

Highest Weight

This is a blog post for my future reference.  I hit my highest weight ever in my entire life.  Even after having two children, I never weighed as much as I do today.  I hit an even 180 pounds.  Full pregnancy, I only ever weighed 177ish.    

Today is the first day of my attempt at using an indoor bike trainer to lose weight without the impact on my knees.  I used to be a long-distance runner and can no longer run due to my excessive weight. 

I did eat mostly raw…

Updates and dental check-up at 2 years, 8 months vegan - December 5, 2015

Decided to post some updates as of today, December 5, 2015:

I had a dental check-up/cleaning yesterday.  I missed my 6 month app, so it has been a year since going to the dentist.  I did notice the hygienist having to scrape my teeth a bit more than last time.  However, she said it really looked pretty good compared to most people.  The best dental check-up I ever had was when I was 100% raw, though.  But, she did say that my mouth looked really good.  I was having some tooth…

Night Sweats - Update

Just wanted to document a change for my personal record and for others to see if they are having the same issues.

I used to have really bad night sweats prior to coming to 30BAD.  I was told this was normal for my age.  I did not think much of it, but began to get concerned as other symptoms began to show.  Nothing I did ever improved my night sweats.  However, at some point months ago, I do remember them going away, except for that time of month.  I kind of forgot about…

Just making a blog post about dehydration.  I did post a full discussion on the effects of dehydration 1-2 years ago, but recently stumbled across some more information I do not recall reading before.  Thought I would post it here to share, as well as have it in a central location for my future reference.

Most of you are probably aware that vitamin d is not a true vitamin, but more of a hormone, steroid hormone.  I know personally, I have had a low vitamin d level for quite…

Health Update

Just wanted to stop in and post an update on my healing.  I am not going to go into detail in this post on what I have been suffering with.  Many of the long-termers are aware of my struggles and at some point, I will elaborate on those again.  For now, I want to share some good news.  

I have been here since April 2013.  I immediately began as 100% raw and maintained it for a year.  After a year, I ate primarily raw til 4 and that then became raw til whenever.  I even tried a…

23 Month Update

It has been awhile since I posted my last update.  I am still around and occasionally lurk on the forum.  I am still working to heal my body.  I am still struggling with bloat, tinnitus, and fatigue, but I no longer have the urinary burning and the pelvic floor pain.  I feel blessed about that. 

My weight gain seems to have stabilized.  I do not think I have gained any more weight since my last update.  I have been hovering around 166-167 for awhile.  I am really hoping I have…

January 20, 2015

Proud to say I had no nightsweat last night. I still cannot do a 100% fruit meal without running to the restroom 7 times. Tried again yesterday with no success. Still working on increasing water intake. I also managed to do a 10-minute tabata with small breaks. Followed that with an upper body workout for 20 minutes. I felt totally fatigued this AM despite feeling good last night after the workout.

January 9, 2015 Update

Today, I decided to test eating raw foods for breakfast, mid-morning snack, and then lunch.  Felt good to eat some fresh, juicy fruits again!  I seemed to tolerate the fruits better than I have in a long time.  Usually, I have to pee 6-7 times in the first hour after eating fruit, but not today!  I did have to go more than normal, but not excessively!  I was pleasantly surprised!  I took my temperature a few times and it was always in the 98 range, a little low compared to my cooked foods,…

Update - January 1, 2015

Taking a moment to post an update.  Tomorrow is the start of month 22 for me on this lifestyle.  I have been heavily focusing on increasing my body temperatures this last 1 1/2 months with some success.  I can definitely feel a difference in my body - nice, warm hands and feet and not having as many reactions to food anymore with this improved body temp.  Unfortunately, in order to get here, I have been eating pretty much 100% cooked vegan foods at all meals.  I eat only a small amount of…

Trying Something Different - Workout Change

Due to my inability to do long workouts, I decided to add a twist to my workouts.  Anyone reading this may already know I do not have lots of endurance yet to pull long/intense workouts.  So, I keep it simple - no more than 20-30 minutes, unless it is a walk outdoors with my kiddos. 

Tonight, I decided to try tabatas.  I picked 6 moves and broke them out over 4 minute tabatas for a total workout maxing out at 12 minutes.  It felt great - went hard, but was over quickly.  Hoping this…

Month 20 Starts Today

Just making some mental notes for myself on my blog.

Today starts month 20 of this lifestyle.  Some good things that are happening.  I can feel my hunger drive increase.  If I do not increase my calories, I feel sluggish and tired.  If I do increase the cals, I gain more weight (not a good thing).  When I eat more calories, I do feel the clarity, energy, etc., but if I am not careful, my insomnia kicks back in.  I was free of insomnia for almost a year until recently.  Starting to see…

Stress Fracture?

I am beginning to think I may never catch a break to succeed. In the last few weeks, I tried running again. It was very hard, but I was able to run 1 mile with barely a break. I did this a few days in a row, but would 2-3 miles 2 days each week. Well, I now dealing with excruciating pain right below the 5th metatarsal and there is a visible lump. It hurts no matter what I do. Probably went too far running too soon - with the extra body weight, not helping at all. Any tips on healing this bone?

Just Analyzing Life

Thought I would take a moment and post this in my blog for future reference.  I am around Day 512 or 513.  If anyone is reading this blog, know that I have been gaining weight on a consistent basis since day 1.  Some of the weight was needed (no eating disorder, but suffer from several health ailments).  I have tried most everything, more cals, less cals, 100% raw, raw til 4, no b12, supplement with b12, drink 4L of water, drink less water, banana island for 12 days, monomeals, and the list…

A Short Run Today - Day 511

I have not been able to run lately due to my increased weight and the strain on my knees and ankles.  I used to run 13 miles with barely any effort but tonight it literally hurt to run 1 mile.  I did it, though!  I ran 1.5 miles nonstop.  It seems like so little to many people, but it felt like a marathon to me.  Going to really try to get this weight back down.  I love this lifestyle, I have to make it work and I cannot keep ballooning out.  I am up another three pounds.  It is seriously my…

Day 483

Today is Day 483. Still coping with tooth issues. Weight gain is still an issue as well as bloat. I am going in tomorrow to see my integrative doctor. I have not seen a single doctor in over a year and a half. I saw her right before I started 801010. With all my struggles with weight, bloat, and a few others, I felt I needed to see what my blood tests reflect. They will be checking several things. They took 6 vials of blood this round. Usually it is 12+, so we shall see. I know B12, D, thyroid,… Continue

Day 457 - And the Start of my 16th Month!

Today is officially the start of Month 16 on this lifestyle.  Lately I have been doing lots of research on water, dehydration, and digestion and its longterm effects.  Since coming to this lifestyle, I have tried 2,500 calories, 4,000 calories (and stabilizing around 3,300 calories), less water, more water, exercise before eating, then after eating.  But what always remains a constant is weight gain and more importantly BLOAT!  I actually had one of my worst days in the last week and…

Day 448 - Some Updates

Today is Day 448.  Wanted to blog a few of my updates.  The two pound I thought I lost was just a timing issue.  I am still at the same weight I was a week ago.  Still bloating like crazy!  I have been experiencing lots of energy over the past week.  I still have times I feel completely lethargic, but have been feeling an overall increase of energy.  The energy is affecting my ability to fall asleep right away, but I am going to allow my body time to adjust to this new level of energy. …

Day 444 - SO MUCH ENERGY!!!! Affecting my Sleep!

Today is Day 444 and I am experiencing so much energy!  This is a really great thing for me.  I could barely walk to purchase clothes for my ill body a year ago, and now I am bouncing off the walls.  Yes this is good!  BUT......it is now affecting my sleep.  For the last 4-5 days, I have been experiencing difficulty sleeping.  Since coming to 30bad, I have been able to fall asleep within 5-10 minutes, now I lay there for up to 30-50 minutes.  Last night, I ended up running in place trying to…

Day 442 - Maybe Weightloss Progress?

Today is Day 442 and I weighed in. I am not a routine weigher but am trying to be as detailed as possible as things are shifting. For the first time, the scale did not reflect a gain, but a 2 pound drop. Not sure if this is a new pivotol point on my journey or just timing. I will continue to monitor this and report back in a few days. I really hope I have hit my max weight and my body will begin adjusting to what is normal. I am feeling really good these days. Still mild fatigue here and there,… Continue
