30 Days on the Raw Side: Day 26

This was day twenty-six of my raw food challenge.  I got about 6 hours of sleep last night.  I woke up feeling rested.

The Food

  • Breakfast – Green Smoothie (7.5 oz Bananas, 6.5 oz Berries, 1/2 cup Apple Juice, 1/2 cup Coconut Water, 2 oz Kale, 1.5 oz Spinach)
  • Morning Snack – 1 large Apple, 2 Clementines
  • Lunch – 3 Clementines, 7.5 oz Bananas, 3.25 oz Strawberries, 1 Medjool Date
  • Afternoon Snack – 1 serving Dried Pineapple Rings
  • Dinner –  On the go… 1.19 lbs Strawberries & Kiwi, 0.73 lbs Pineapple
  • Evening Snack – 1 serving Grawnola
  • Water – 30 ounces
  • Calories – 1,722.3 (Carbs 85.7% / Protein 5.2% / Fat 9.1%)
  • Fiber – 53.8 grams!

The Exercise:

  • One hour of Indoor Cycling class.

The Results:

  • As of Friday I’ve lost 8 lbs and 7.5 inches.  For more information, check out my Week 3 Summary.

The Effects:

  • This morning I had to turn down a lovely hot chocolate while at the rink… you know, where it’s cold and a hot beverage would be so delightful?  I would think that the hardest part about turning down the drink would be the “missing out on drinking it” part. Actually, I felt bad that this kind woman had purchased it for me.  As it turned out, the little boy who got it was thrilled, which helped.
  • Today’s cycling class was… hmm… exhausting?  Yes, exhausting seems right.  I thought I might throw up about half-way through but didn’t.  I don’t really feel any soreness but I was so tired that I ended up napping for about 45 minutes this afternoon.  The Husband said that he felt the same way after class when he first started spinning.  That made me feel a little better.
  • Grawnola – this was one of those, “hmm, I wonder what that tastes like” purchases.  I nibbled on it a little in the van earlier (the Husband is in search of a running hat that meets his strict specifications… we didn’t find one).  I’m fairly certain I did not eat half the bag (one serving).  It tasted good, but my stomach feels a little weird now.  Depending on how digestion goes, it would be a great option for hiking or camping.  It’s expensive though, so there is no way I’d be chowing down on it.
