Day 184, 100% Raw Fruitarian

Wednesday, Day 184, 100% Raw Fruitarian. Circumstances had me off work today. It was an unexpected day of leisure. i had a workout this morning after family worship. It was a good one as i decided to focus on incline pushups today. Now i call incline pushups, those done with my feet in a chair and my hands on the floor. i combined these with the door-assisted one leg squats. Great workout. Did it on a 30 minute time limit. i wanted to do 300 incline pushups and 200 squats (100 each leg), but halfway through i was whipped and was glad to get done what was done. My fruit supply was meager today and i have none for tomorrow at this point, but i have learned to just flow with these things. If i get no fruit tomorrow, i will just fast on water for the day. i get paid on Friday and will be glad to get a fresh supply of delicious fruit. i forgot to mention in my last blog the 48oz of water i drank. i am simply not used to drinking water after being on this type of diet for 6 months. But i must admit, it appears to be helping the smell of the urine. i don't understand it because my urine was clear continually before this, it just smelled really bad. Its still clear now, it just doesn't smell as bad. Something to be said for drinking fresh water even on a juicy fruit diet. Here is how the meals went:

16 oz of water. Half of a personal watermelon. (339 calories)

16oz of water. tomato-cucumber salad with pate. (584 calories)

16oz of water. Half of a personal watermelon, one banana, one mango. (594 calories).

30 minutes.....240 push-ups, 160 one leg squats (80 each).

60 push-ups (i wanted an even 300 for the day).

i am amazed at how much abdominal work i get done by chins/pull-ups and push-ups (especially with one leg extended, really feel that).

Grace and Peace be multiplied.
