30 Bananas a Day!

Freelee's challenge: 1 year of doing the whole shebang--diet, exercise, water, sleep, etc.  Stop worrying about weight gain and the momentary ups and downs of detox.  Just do it!  




Meal 1: 96 oz. oj

Meal 2: 7 sm. bananas

Meal 3: Polenta (yellow corn grits) w/ broccoli, corn, nutritional yeast, mustard, Italian seasoning, salt

A handful of cilantro out of my garden

Meal 5: Black beans, salt

3311 cal.  86/4/10 C/F/P, 1643 mg. sodium 


16 cups/ 128 oz.


11:00(?)-8:30  Lights out at 9:30 but was up with my husband for awhile.

Today's Pleasures

Getting my kitchen nice and clean

Watching inspiring videos


White coating on my tongue upon awakening

Dark puffy under-eye circles in the morning 

Some gas 

Lots of small bowel movements

Some pain and itching in my rectum (I think it's the polenta?)

Redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin 

Stress level

Moderate... kinda crabby and down today.

Daily Thoughts

It's just kinda hard sometimes to struggle along here, always running out of fruit and dealing with the cold weather.  Though I really love my job, it is hard to balance it with my other interests, goals, and dreams, and with caring for my children.  My son nursed sooo much yesterday.  He's going through a growth spurt, and when I am gone the day before to work, then he nurses a lot to make up for the day before.  I know I'll feel better when I get a little more fruit to eat, a little more rest, and my exercise.  Exercise does wonders for my mood.  It would be nice if the sun came out, too, but the forecast says not today.

I am going to do updated pictures and a summary post when I hit 60 days soon.  Does anybody have any questions that they would like me to answer?  I have a couple from Grape Nut and February Girl, thanks!

Also, I don't have anybody confirmed for my greens party yet.  If you are able to come, I'd LOVE to see you!

It's difficult to balance a full life.  Every moment has the answer.  I have to remind myself to stay present instead of in the fret of the future mode.  Everything that needs to be done will be done. 


A question from a newbie to 811rv:  why the added salt?  I just joined this blog of yours and truly am not a regular yet.

Yay! GM! Your doing well! What are you future goals dream and interests?! Maybe you can make baby goals. LOL. Mine are to convert my sons diet to a whole foods plant based type for breakfast and lunch when he is home with me. My second is to do a handstand in yoga. The third is to do chores around the house more. Hope you have a relaxing day.

Hey greenmama! I hear you loud and clear regarding the weather. Sometimes I wonder why on earth would I still be living in the northeast where our four seasons seem to be snow sleet rain and hail! But soon you will be reaping wonderful produce from your garden and get a reprieve from the dark days. My gym has a pink light that I find helpful when I am dealing with seasonal blues. I know how a lot of nursing can get to you too. As much as I adored it and miss it horribly there were times when I felt a bit...I dunno, trapped? Like my life was not my own. Or more like my body was not my own. Seeing how you respond to exercise is very inspiring for me! I hope to experience that someday soon! Hang in there. Love your input on the anorexia thread! I think what you said about a teens right of passage should have its own thread! Fascinating topic!

I often wonder how you do it all?! You're doing extremely well, just as Helena mentioned.
I so wish I could come to your party, but I'm in Australia. Maybe the next one you have I can come to... I'll be traveling the USA from after WFF to November :)

Hi Greenmama, just sending you hugs! You're doing it well even with not much fruit. When I ate polenta few times I always felt a little bit sick from my stomach, corn is probably not food for me!

Just relax more,lay in bed. The sun here is extremely strong here, I have almost 40 degrees Celsia in my room, so that's other extreme,haha.

Hope you're feeling better, I'm looking forward to your photos:)
