30 Bananas a Day!

Well, last night, I decided to try some of Dr. Doug's recipes from 811- had a mango and tomato, blended, with chucks of each in the bowl. It was wonderful- I like how he has the three courses for a dinner- fruity, fruity but moving towards veggie, then veggie with a little fruit. It makes sitting down to devour my greens more palatable. I have been using lemon juice on my salads for quite a while, now. It is a leftover belief from my high fat raw days, that I shouldn't combine veggies and fruit. So my salads went from being my garlic, salt, oil, party-in-a -bowl meal to a sedate, not-so-fun experience. It seems like D r. Doug's suggested menu is much more geared towards transitioning but I still like it. I don't put any fruit on my salads, but I am going to start. Couldn't believe how good the mango/tomato mixture was! Again, I am glad to be doing this blog. I love this site and I post or comment when applicable, but this is a good way for me to check in with myself. I am learning to be more present in my life. Just because I see something that reminds me of something I "should" do, doesn't mean I have to be yanked out of right now to think about it. I am in control of my thoughts, not the other way around. Talked to my husband last night about my remaining weight I would like to lose. We both agree that me talking about how I don't like this or that part of my body is counter productive. In the grand scheme of things, I figure if I eat right and work out regularly, I will get where I want to be (which is right here, right now- hmmm...). I have been trying to incorporate more cardio into my exercising but I think I need to wait for an organic shift and not feel pressured that I am never going to look like a swimsuit model ( or like Freelee :) unless I make myself get on my trampoline. I figure if I do strength training regularly, for now, that will be enough. It is too hot here in Tennessee to go walking at any normal hour- I've decided to stop stressing about it. I also decided to stop with the scale. I lost 20 lbs pretty quickly when I quit eating avocados every day and cut out oil and salt. So, I was pretty vigilant about watching the numbers on the scale. I have decided to stop. My weight has stopped at 129.5 lbs and I have to say that for my weight to stop somewhere and not go up, for a few months, is new for me. So, in the interest of not living in the past or the future, I am working on accepting things, me, my body, as they are. I will continue to work towards my goals, but I have to accept my main goal which is not diet related and that is being here, now. The rest will work itself out.

Hey Melonhead, thanks for blogging. Congratulations on your journey and achievements! How did you get used to salads with no salt? I´ve got rid of oil and avocados but cant get rid of the salt. Also, I would recommend yoga for exercise, it feels so good and I personally really look forward to it and rarely miss a lesson. When doing exercise depends solely on me, I rarely achieve my goals.
