Wednesday, Day 107, 100% Raw Fruitarian. i was feeling down on myself today. i am sure most people can relate. Like a failure. It was one of those decision-making days. Today i decided, that i am tired of debt, of owing people money. If my Heavenly Father can help me get out of debt, i will never get back into again. Ever. As i looked over the past few years of my life today, my mistakes seem like giant red flags. i do not blog this to seek pity, please none of that. But i simply want to blog my experience as it really is in my life, from my perspective. i suppose in the past this type of day may have been an excuse for me to eat things i know i shouldn't. i am past that point now by the Grace of the Lord. From the experience i have had in life, i know i will rise above this. These verses help me today:
Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Micah 7:9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
i really thank the God of Heaven for the Bible. Especially in times like these. i ate very well today. It was not the type of day that would make the mono-meal crowd happy, but it sure did make me happy...LOL. This is also a testament to where i am right now. The food i ate today really also helped me with my mood. In the past it could have been stuff like fried chicken or veggie "meat" sandwiches or PB&Js. It could have been an apple pie or oreo cookies or a pizza. Today, this is what it was:
7 valencia oranges, 2 mangos, one large red tomato, one avocado (1011 calories)
Non-sweet fruity salad with banana-avocado dressing and curry. (818 calories).
10 valencia oranges, 3 navel oranges. (799 calories).
That was the last of my valencias. Man i will miss them! The sister that brought me some last week has ordered another case for me. Very much looking forward to getting them. i tell you the truth, i could eat 2 cases per week easily. Seriously. i love them.
i have listed 7 fruits that i could definitely live on indefinitely. Oranges, melons, durian, mango, bananas, avocados, tomatoes.....throw in some cukes and celery and i am all set....
Exercise: 10 minutes of isometrics. Mental exhaustion stopped me more than anything else. This would have been a good day to run or even walk. But it was raining all day. That too will pass.
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
