Oct 2011 - Thirty Day Challenge - Join anytime of the month!
Welcome welcome welcome!!! :excited:
Welcome to the 30 day challenge and welcome to our new monthly format.
This is our monthly challenge thread. We are choosing to do one (or perhaps split into two) continual threads so we can create a community of support within this challenge. You can join this thread at any time during the month. Don't be shy... we love new posters!!! So if you want to join us... please do!
I welcome people who are already 100% raw to join in the conversation - supporting our challengers in their quest! :cheer:
This thread is specifically for those of you who are eager to commit to 30 consecutive days of eating 100% raw foods and seeing miraculous results!
I will start a new challenge thread on the first of every month. If I forget... send me a quick email and remind me... I'll get the challenge thread online for you quickly.
The focus of the monthly challenge is on staying raw and accountability. Therefore, if you have eaten all raw and then slip up and have something cooked, don't beat yourself up over it or dwell on it - but this is not space to discuss it. You are more than welcome to document it in your journal/blog or ask for help in the discussion area, but it is not necessary (and not allowed) to discuss your slip-up here in the challenge threads, just get right back on track and keep going! This thread is about celebrating what you are eating that IS raw!
I welcome you all to share pics of your dishes, ask questions, share what you are consuming (as long as it's raw). We are here to listen to your emotional and physical challenges. So share share share!!! :hug
OH and the best part of this (not only the support but...) you can subscribe to this thread and get notified every time someone posts to it. This way you will be connected!
So let's get this party started!!!:throwhearts:
is this where I join the raw challenge?
I have been raw for 18 days. So impressed with myself though I have had some challenges not that tempted of my old food choices and old temptations but feeling vitality probably due to being 5 months pregnant I believe colonics salt flushes and the like will help me get the detox out faster so I can start feeling great all the time like others on raw I have noticed that exercise has helped and Quantum Bee Pollen. Need support on how to safely get the gunk out easily and safely while pregnant. Over half way to doing raw 30 days and beyond 18 days it seemed impossible considering how many days I told myself this is the day and by noon weakness overcame me but journaling everday what I eat and reading the sunfood success diet book and going online and youtube for inspiration has made such a big difference and I was sick of being exhausted all the time due to dietary choices I was motivated by my unborn baby poor thing has gone through a lot in the womb and when I got blood work done it came out thick and slow for what seemed like 10 minutes the proof is in the seeing I could see what my current diet was doing to my blood and the doc even told me to take baby asprin due to the slow circulation to the uteruse. I started taking garlic pills instead and about a month and half later when I did some more blood work it took less than a minute to get 5 viles out and it was nice and thin! So even though I would love to say now my energy problems are over I could see that my blood was cleaner and healthier and this is a journey and Im pregnant so I am celebrating the little things like sometimes when I smile my whole body smiles too and at times being present and seeing my toddler through fresh eyes and the miraculous support I received to help me when I needed it like the time I went to farmers market and some guy was selling raw hibiscus tea with raw honey and it was so divine I could actually have something besides fruit and veggies and the time I was starving at follow your heart and just to the right of the check out counter was a rep from a raw food restaraunt who gave me 5 sample of divine food and a entire kale salad and it saved me when I was totally depleted from being at a car repair place, a smog check and triple and olnly had fruit in the morning. Love to all
Thanks for taking the time.
Thanks Bonzer, for all the advice!
Ah yes, so you feel my pain;D or, have felt my pain. I'm off to watch some videos! So this is day two of walking toward becoming 100% raw! I guess my real 30 day challenge should start when my stuff arrives and I'm no longer having coffee and organic oatmeal for breakfast... but the rest of my day is pretty good! Weird, but boy, did my skin look better this morning. I love it!
