I know last time I said, "for sure you will see post for day 16", well here it is, lol...maybe I should have said for sure I will try. 

I lost the little pad where I was jotting down my food intake. I think I left it at study group or something. I can say that Iv been eating pretty well, except for yesterday. 

As it turns out I got the perfect lab partner for chemistry class. At first I thought it was funny because we were a bit odd for paring, His major is chemical engineering and mine is environmental science. He wants to blow stuff up and I want to save the world. Aside from that major difference we share many interest. Mostly that we are both surfers. Yesterday we were finishing up some homework and it seemed like the perfect time for the beach, so we went. It got late on me and I was starving as I had only packed a few snacks for study group. We went to this place on the island, all the veggies they offered were fried. I'm serious, they even had fried pickles. I thought about asking for some of the stuff they had raw, but as they serve fish and other meats there, I was worried to be victim of cross contamination so I ate the fried food. 

It's so strange, I was able to notice an immediate effect on my was not happy.

All this time and I can't remember to keep it clean and pack my own stuff.

day 8-15 of 100

I'm starting to feel like I might be the worst blogger in the world. It just seems like I cant find the time to post regularly. I have been bombarded with homework since the first day of class. This week we were preparing for my grandmother's 80th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRAMMY). My brother came down to visit for the party. The couple days he was here I strayed from raw foods twice. Then last night we got hit by a tropical storm. It almost turned into a hurricane, boy did we get lucky..

So, you will notice that the header says 8-15. Im just going to give a quick update for those days because there is no way I can find time to post for them all. Like in my prior post my weight continues to fluctuate. The lowest was 149.2 the day my brother got here. It has been up all the way to 154 and then back down again. I have learned not to focus so much on the scale but I like to keep record because I can go back and look at what I ate and how my body reacted. I have been all raw except for those two times while my brother was here. I'm pretty proud that after having some SAD (standard american diet) foods I was able to go right back to raw the very next meal. 

I have to say after almost 2 months of adding raw foods to my diet and just these few days of high raw to 100% raw, I feel great. Since I first learned and began to practice a raw food diet I have lost about 15 lbs. The 17th will be exactly 2 months. During this time it has been pretty hard to make it to the gym so it is all because of the diet change. I had begun to work out in Feb, because that is when I was first able to since the accident. Due to the accident I gained about 30+ lbs. Regardless all those months of hard work at the gym only got me down a few lbs. 

If your interested in looking and feeling your best I highly suggest looking into a raw foods diet. Now do not be confused, this is not a diet as to loose weight, it is more of a lifestyle. The word diet here means what you eat or the way you eat, not a specific program designed to make you loose weight. The thing about raw foods is that it provides your body with clean whole foods, which are rich in enzymes and nutrients that your body can use for many things. You will see your body change and heal as it cleans out all the toxins that have built up over the years. You will also see that your skin, hair, and nails look more youthful. This is because of the enzyme rich foods. 

O.k well thats all I have time for today, again I am sorry for not being constant with my post. You will, for sure, see a post here for day 16.
