30 Bananas a Day!

Ok so here goes, it's been rough the past few months with a week or two of 811 then cooked food here and there then days straight of nothing but cooked.  My emotions have been haywire and my weight has been bouncing back and forth by 30lb margins, needless to say I lost control.  Oh and the fact that the entire fall I was battling different illnesses, spending most of my time in bed, passing out in airports, and having a pneumonia like cough that refuses to go away after 2months.  


So my list of New Year's resolutions is vast this year.  The most important of which is to really commit to 811 with no exceptions.  If I let one thing slide before I know it I'm a full-fledged cooked addict.  So I'm in Ecuador right now and on day 3 of 811.  And I realized something- I was missing out, while I was visiting street side restaurants and knocking back rice and patacones there were amazing fruit waiting for me.  I've since been eating some really good papaya(I don't normally even like papaya), cherimoyas, passionfruit, cantaloupes, and wait for it wait for it the best DRAGONFRUIT!!!  I think I'd like to mono dragonfruits if I could but the price and low calorie content means they are a treat with whatever fruit I'm making my meal up of.


Anyways I'm very excited to be on day3 and to be Doing It!  The moodswings and bipolar feelings have already leveled out and I find myself more at ease and happier.  More positive things seem to be happening in the universe as well.  Another new years resolution was to stop drinking(I only drink white wine btw)  and I started that new years night, do you know how difficult it is not to drink in salinas, ecuador?  Everyone I know started out by atleast 9a that morning, but I stayed strong and midnight rolled around and I was up with everyone else, then partied til 6a without a drop of alcohol- I felt really good about that.  KY had sucked me into drinking on a regular basis with all of my friends, I feel really great having the power to not drink again :)


So along with 811 and no alcohol(until March), I've also resolved to get enough sleep, limit television, start p90x again, bikram yoga everyday, learn a foreign language, make an inspiration board, and a few other things(I don't have my notebook on me right now), basically I want to start living as the person I envision myself as.  Never again thinking about what I want to do or wish or dreaming, but making those dreams reality and living it.

Wow Jes, lay it on the line girl. I felt I was reading my life story.

Nice to be able to put it in print what a cool young lady you are.

Great to hear, Jes! You can do it :) Ecuador is a great place to be when you're 811! They have killer rambutan and lychees down there. The sugar apple is pretty stellar too. Enjoy!


Love to hear about other Bikram Yogi's here.

@Terra, don't listen to what others say about Bikram! As long as you stay hydrated you'll be golden. I work at a bikram studio and I practice 2-3 times per week drinking 5-6L per day to stay hydrated. It's an amazing workout that benefits you both physically and spiritually.

Hi Jes  - congrats on your motivation and positivity! I started on Jan 2nd and failed on day 1! My heart just wasn't in it yet I suppose.  But I will get there and somebody has to eat all the fruit in my kitchen =)  Thanks for your inspiring post.

@david  hope 2011 is great for you too! thanks for the words of encouragement


@Terra'ism  omg everything you said ditto, it's like you're in my head lol.  yea i did bikram in a studio back in the states, i meant to keep it up while i was in ecuador but too much cooked food in the beginning and now i'm detoxing so plan is to start in a few days.  I love it and think you sweat just as much as these guys running or biking in the hot sun for hours. Plus I've always had a prob with flexibility and really thinks it help increase flexibility by heating the joints, etc....


anyways cheers to 2011, let me know how ur doing k!

Yea, follow through. You can do it. I've been on 801010 now for a couple of months, my longest, and I don't plan on going back. Cooked food makes me nauseous and throws my body out of balance. Hope 2011 is a great, steady year for you.
