Wow. I really didn't know if I could do a week on just bananas and greens but I have.
I think my body is still healing heavily.
I am going to really stick to monomeals for quite a while. Tomorrow I will introduce melons back into my diet - mmm honeydews for brekkie :) I cannot wait. Does anyone know if its good or bad for my digestion that I add some mint from my garden to to them?
I'm still really hungry. I guess I need rest and for my body to obsorb the extra calories. I refuse to feel guilt anymore about how much I eat. I obviously need it.
I just wanna thank everyone for being so kind, informative and supportive towards me on this banana island. I didn't feel alone at all!
Today I did my usual ride and swim in the morning, but felt quite exhausted. Ive even allowed myself to have a nap today! I didn't go to a birthday party tonight because I knew it would be full of alcohol and cigerettes and I didn't want to feel tempted or alienated. I am just staying home watching dvds that make me laugh. :)
IMPROVEMENTS ON MY BANANA & GREENS WEEK
*nails- noticably longer and so so strong!
*skin- still bumpy but healing amazingly- redness and size diminished noticibly, only very small bumps now
*realisation that I can trust my own will power
*increase in strength and indurance in exercise, even though I have had tired periods that I trust are healing breaks my body needs
MORE IMPROVEMENTS I HOPE TO SEE
*Dried out looking skin- I hope to regain natural moisture
*faith in self and no reliance or pre occupation with food
*abundant vive and energy
*thicker, longer hair
I notice that my skin irritation seems worse just after and during eating...hmm
Yay for the journey!
I am aching for the beach...I need to find friends who enjoy the beach as much as I do!
How did everyone else go on the island???
Tonight is so beautiful- so many nights recently that finish off a boiling hot summers day with a cooling breeze and rain or storm. It reminds me of when I was younger and I'd come home from school and a summer storm would hit, and my brother would put the Doors 'riders on the storm' on really loud, and Id watch the rain and lightening through my bedroom window, breathing in the grassy earthy smell and feeling an odd sense of excitement with each crack of thunder.
