Day 137 of the Fruit Feast. With this past weekend being Memorial Day in the USA (thanks to all Veterans for their service), i have been quite busy. Doing bible studies, preaching and teaching, working out, gardening and exercising have taken up alot of my time. The Raw diet is still going very well inspite of the salt. i am still 100% raw and still enjoying it. i have not had cravings for the last few weeks at all. i get the slightest of tastes for the grain foods once in awhile but its not any real temptation. The Autumn season is usually when those cravings are the strongest so we will see what happens. i am behind on my weekly push up/chin up schedule because of the various other activities. So far this week i am at 800/180 (after having done 500/120 today). i am planning on about 300/60 per day for the next 2 days to reach 1400/300 for the week. The goal for this month is 5000/1200. i do feel alot stronger now. One of the reasons for my having to play catch up is on Monday i played ball with my son. 8 grueling games of one-on-one full court. i got him this time 5 games to 3. i am really loving these times as we are not only bonding but building memories that will last the rest of our lives. i never really ever had that with my father, as i recall more pain than love. But i am so very thankful that i can have it with my own son. The Love of Christ is a wonderful, life-changing thing.
Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
i have been sticking, pretty consistently, to a diet routine that has me either eating melons or drinking juices in the morning (usually at least 36oz but usually more than 40oz). Then eating something more substantial in the afternoon (large non-sweet salads with nut sauces or things like the fruit crisp). Then more juices or melon for dinner. This morning i changed that a bit (and i felt it negatively). My wife is doing a 30 day juice fast for the month of June. She juiced some carrots yesterday and i used the residue mixed with some soaked flax seeds to make some dehydrated crackers. They were so so really but i ate them this morning prior to my melon and juice. My stomach felt it in a negative way. While i was able to recover i really don't want to alter the routine again if i can help it as i knew i sent confused signals to my system.
