30 Days on the Raw Side: Day 13

This is the thirteenth day of my raw food challenge.  Got about 7 hours of sleep last night.  I didn’t sleep very well though.  I think I had a mild reaction to the figs last night.  I had blisters on the inside of my mouth and on my eye lid this morning, and I spotted a hive on my arm.  My stomach was a little torn up this morning as well.  The only food I had out of the ordinary was the figs.  I’ll wait a few days and try them again (during the day though).

The Food

  • Breakfast – 4.75 cups Green Smoothie (12.5 oz Bananas, 6.5 oz Berries, 3/4 C Coconut Water, 3/4 C Apple Juice, 2 oz Spinach, 3.5 oz Kale)
  • Morning Snack – Green Smoothie was 566 calories, didn’t need this meal today.
  • Lunch – 1 lb 7.5 oz Cantaloupe
  • Afternoon Snack – 1 Banana (4 oz), 1 really large Apple (10oz)
  • Dinner –  3.5 oz Pomegranate, 2 Bananas (9.5 oz), 3.25 oz Kiwi, 2.5 oz Pineapple, 2 Mejool Dates
  • Evening Snack – 1 really large Apple, 1.5 servings dried pineapple rings
  • Water – 80 ounces
  • Calories – 1,876.4 (Carbs 92.4% / Protein 4.7% / Fat 2.9%)
  • Fiber – 59.4 grams!

The Exercise:

  • 45 minutes on the treadmill (24 minutes walking, 21 minutes running).

The Results:

  • As of Friday, I’ve lost 4.8 lbs and 3.74 inches.  Check out my Week 1 Summary.

The Effects:

  • I noticed a change in my “shape” this morning.  My waist seems more defined and I’m hopeful that measurements Friday morning will confirm this.
  • It looks like I’ll have a reason to stick with my running schedule.  The Husband found a half-marathon he’d like to do in May and I would like to join him.  This will be his first and my second at this distance.
  • The “no poo” adventure I’ve been on took a bit of a detour today.  If you’re following that development, you can read about it here.
