Day 108 of the Fruit Feast. i don't think its a coincidence that i am getting into Fruitarianism at this time of my life. i believe those with the most clarity of thought are at an advantage these days. My thoughts today were with the people of Nashville, Tennessee. At least 22 people died in the flooding. Flooding in Tennessee, bombs in new york city, Oil spills in the gulf coast. Disasters have been happening for thousands of years, but only the willfully ignorant cannot see the increase in both intensity and frequency over the last 20 years. That with the increases of school shootings, families killing each other and (in this "enlightened" age), rampant diseases shows the Bible is right, we are in the last days and what we are seeing is just the beginning of sorrows. To me, the best thing i can do is be a perfect reflection of Jesus Christ.If i can be an example to point others to Him, precious souls can be saved from a lost world.
Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
Recently i have been more into eating in a mono fashion. With the exception of the non-sweet fruit salad, i have noticed that i really only want one type of fruit at a time. i noticed that even the salad all i really want is the tomatoes. The other stuff are just fillers. i want to celery only because it helps with salt cravings and the avocado with fat cravings. Last year there were times when i could eat up to 3-4 avocados at once. This year i can only eat 1/2 -1 avocado and that would only be like3-4 times per week. The transiion continues and we move forward.
My workouts have started off very well this week. As of today i have done 820 push ups and 222 chins. i need 1125 and 250 for more weekly goals for the month of May so i am well on the way. i added a chin up bar to my bedroom today. i have my "gym" in the basement but if i am only doing upper body, i like to be able to do it in the comfort of my bedroom. So i did 12 sets of both push ups and chins giving myself 2 minutes rest between sets. It worked out very well as i did 420 push ups and 102 chins today. i felt very energetic afterwards and would have done another workout in the evening by i was on the road all afternoon into the evening. So i will do some leg work tomorrow.
Breakfast: 1/3 of a 20lb watermelon
Lunch: Non-sweet fruity salad with celery sauce (no avocado today). It wasn't as good without the avocado. i would have enjoyed it more if i had just eaten the tomatoes and drank some celery juice. i will remember that for next time.
Snack: 5 bananas.
Dinner: 2/3 of a 20lb watermelon.
Spiritual bread: 2 timothy 2, 2 chronicles 1-4
Exercise: 420 push ups, 102 chins 37 minutes.
Grace and Peace be mutliplied to all.
