30 Bananas a Day!

So Here I am, thinking about my health and general state of my body.  Not particularly happy.  I have a lot to be thankful for admittedly, live in a country free of political turmoil with loads of opportunity.  Relatively healthy.


Now while I'm certainly "care factor zero" when it comes to body image, as a massage therapist, I'm also aware that posture and body shape affect health and fitness levels - both of which I would like to improve, should I look better as a result of improving the functional parameters of my body, well and good.


Having messed around with raw for the last couple of years, I have an idea of what works for me.  So now it's time to get serious! Low Fat Raw Vegan here I come.  starting today 17th May 2011.


Current status: 79kgs, 37% bodyfat, 56% water -  the last 2 readings come from a "body fat weight scale" I bought off eBay.  No idea how valid or accurate the last 2 readings are, I just know the weight part is relatively accurate.


waist measurement: 97cm - I plan on trimming this by 10cm at least


Main source of fruit until bananas come back will be watermelon and dates, aiming to start with 2500 kcals, once there moving up to 3200 kcals.


My starting out pics sure ain't pretty.  This is about transparency and objectivity

3 days down, the smell of fast food, the cooked fat from the fryers is really starting to repulse me.  I feel like someone who has tried giving up smoking multiple times.  The change is coming fast.  I wish this chest infection would F@ck off quick.  TCMers would say it's the "cold" food I'm eating

Run/Walk: 33:47s   3.78km more than 3/4's walk *sigh*  Heart Rate monitor zone 130-165 bpm


While the session ain't that great for my ego, it's heaps easier on my body, and so going out again on Fri will be heaps easier.  Thanks to training wisdom by Harley Johnson, it's heaps easier to "listen to my body" when it's beeping from my wrist 8^)


Todays nutrition:  2.4kg of watermelon (late breakfast),  3.2 ltr of Date-o-rade (approx 2200 cals) and a salad sometime in the evening.  So much food, I feel stuffed just thinking about it

1st day down.  last night had a strong hankering for deep fat fried potatoes! think I'll have to avoid Lord of the fries and the food court where I buy potato cakes for the next couple of weeks


This morning it's a run with GPS tracking on the iphone and cheap HRM (train smart, not hard) and watermelon for breakfast!! yuuuuuuuuuuuuuum!

well I hope my posture in my after pic is better.  My Lordotic curves in the Cervical & Lumber regions are a bit excessive

At least I have a month or so to work out how my camera works so I can take a pic of me doing chin ups
