30 Days on the Raw Side: Day 19

This was the nineteenth day of my raw food challenge.  I got about 7 hours of sleep last night.

The Food

  • Breakfast – 3.5 cups Green Smoothie (9.5 oz Bananas, 5.75 oz Strawberries, 1/2 cup Apple Juice, 1/2 cup Coconut Water, 2 oz Kale, 2 oz Spinach)
  • Morning Snack – 1 medium Apple
  • Lunch – 4.5 oz Mango, 3.25 oz Kiwi, 9 oz Bananas, 4 Clementines, 1 Mejool Date
  • Afternoon Snack – Forgot to eat this meal.
  • Dinner –  4.75 cups Green Smoothie (4.5 oz Strawberries, 2 oz Blueberries, 2 oz Spinach, 2.25 oz Kale, 13 oz Bananas, 3/4 cup Apple Juice, 3/4 cup Coconut Water)
  • Evening Snack – 1 medium Apple, 2 Oranges (this is the plan anyway).
  • Water – 68 ounces
  • Calories – 1,900.3 (Carbs 92.2% / Protein 5% / Fat 2.9%)
  • Fiber – 67.7 grams!

The Exercise:

  • Planned to do the cycling class today but all of the New Year’s Resolutionists (ok, so that’s a made up word) filled the class this morning.  I’ll get on the list early for the next class.  So, I ended up going to the Y later and riding the spin bike on the machine floor.  I forgot my iPod so this was a very boring ride.  I only made it thirty minutes.  Did some stretching and then walked on the treadmill for the last fifteen minutes to round out the hour.  Also did a one hour TaeKwonDo class this evening.  I’m worn out.

The Results:

  • As of Friday I’ve lost 7.4 lbs and 6.6 inches.  For more information, check out my Week 2 Summary.

The Effects:

  • I didn’t have as much energy today and I think that had something to do with the lower calorie count yesterday.  I must make sure I eat enoughBy the time I made it to TaeKwonDo I was tired.
  • I think people secretly think I’m crazy for doing this raw challenge.  All I can say is, “don’t knock it till you try it.”
  • The Husband wanted to watch Forks over Knives again last night (Thank you, Netfix streaming).  I had forgotten all of the information linking cancer to animal protein.  Now I can see why the Husband was so serious about us converting to vegan.
  • My seven and nine year-olds asked for smoothies this morning.  I think I’m rubbing off on them.
  • We tell the kids that they are allowed to eat what is offered to them at friend’s homes, even if it isn’t vegan.  Well, my twelve year old spent the night with a friend over the weekend.  She did eat non-vegan stuff but she limited it on her own.  She came home and told us that she had tacos but didn’t put meat, sour cream or cheese on hers.  Wow!  That’s some serious resolve!  I wonder if this has anything to do with her feeling sick after eating some things at a church Christmas party a few weeks ago?  Whatever the cause, I think she really likes that she sleeps better since going vegan.
