Day 195 of the Fruit Feast. Deuteronomy 20:19 ....for the tree of the field is man's life..
i am finding this Bible truth to be more & more real in my own experience. Both now
and in times past whenever Fruit has been the predominant food in my
life, my energy level and spiritual clarity reach all-time highs. Such
is the case now as i am experiencing power surges in my own person. The
question mark for me is, how will my muscles react over the long term?
In the past i have noticed (both in my own experience as well as the
testimony of others), that Fruit appears to really have benefits in
terms of endurance. Endurance athletes seem to reach much higher levels
of stamina on a Fruit-based diet. i have not seen many examples for
those that do mostly strength/resistance training like i do. In fact i
have only seen one example, that is a fellow named Richard Blackman. But even he
seemed like a smaller guy to me. It will be interesting to see what i
look like when i am doing 8000-10,000 push ups per month. i hope to
reach the 8000 point in December of this year. In 2006, i tried to bulk
up using heavy amounts of nuts but that did nothing but clog my system
as i definitely over did it on the nuts. i was also using weights which i
think was unnecessary as i am in love with body weight training. i am
using nuts and seeds now but much more sparingly. As i am at the six and
one half month point of this particular foray into raw, i like how i
As posted earlier, i realize my downfall has been grains. i need to stay away from them and i have weakness for them. i am not surprised
having been raised on them (like most Americans). So far, so good but we
will see how i handle the Autumn season which is my weakest time. i am
getting noticeably stronger as i continue my push up/chin up regiment. i
finished this month with 7930 push ups and 1492 chins. This total is an
aberration since July had an extra week. Over the last four weeks it
was more like 6400/1300 which is still ahead of my own schedule (i
planned on being at 6000/1200 for July). My goal for August is to match
July's Four week total and then increase for September. i still weigh in
at 200lbs mostly because i am using salt but i am fine with that as my
overall fitness level is good in my estimation.
The mangoes are excellent right now and i am trying to obtain them whenever
i can. i am hoping the quality lasts into September this year. The
melons i planted in my garden are not looking too good, but the sweet
peppers look good. The jury is still out on the tomatoes. But i have
been able to obtain some locally grown melons and tomatoes recently and
they are excellent as well. My salads lately have been just cucumber
with tomatoes and seeds. The tomatoes are so good i could just eat them
alone. Well, that is the report for this week. i pray all who read this
receive a blessing.
Sabbath Peace and Grace to all in Christ.
Have a wonderful Weekend!
