This is the last hours of my current challenge....

100 days of >95% raw vegan eating and new morning habits/routines!

How well did it acctuallt go then?
Well I'd say it went really well. I had a few days when I fell of the waggon, thou note more than a handful and never a whole day. Most days I stayed well beyond 95% as well, probably somewhere around 98-99% raw. I feel really proud, especially since I have no raw fooders living within resonable distance. Oh, sorry I do. About 20 minutes by car from where I live. I'm gonna meet this new found friend tomorrow. AWSOME!

My new routines are set and I feel strange when I don't do them - water, hatha yoga, cool shower, breakfast... :) I'm loving it! Perhaps I'll change my yoga session for another yoga session, thou I wouldn't give up morning yoga. It's such a great way to start the day, to get streched out and warmed up.

So looking back at my challenge I feel very proud. I love myself! It's seems as this summer was short and long at the same time. I been thru such awsome changes within my self. I have felt infinite love and deep sorrow, endless happyness and scary emptyness... I've felt ease of mind and hopefulness, joy and I have cried happy tears dancing with myself. It has been a wonderful journey and I feel a lot stronger, more convinced and healthier then ever. I have cleared my vision and I am rewriteing the story of my life - starting tomorrow with a new "challenge" I will get into a new routine.

My vision I stated a few blog posts ago. My goal is essentially the same (thou a bit adapted to my current life situation). The main part of my vision is freedom in all stages of life. Financial, emotional, logical, spiritual...

One step in creating financial freedom is not to raise my income, but to make my expences insignificantly small. Consuming less is my plan. Thou some things might be usefull to have, like clothes. So I plan to start (when I really need to) buy only hemp and organic natural materials clothes. I will also, and this is my new challenge, start to grow my own food. Doing so have several benefits. To name a few...
> Lowering food expenses
> Controlling my food from soil to plate so I can be surtain it's absolutely free from chemicals
> Minimizing transports
> Absolutely freshly harvested food

I will start by cultivating my own sallads and herbs. Since autumn is comming I will have an indoor plantation. So what I might need for the winter is an extra light for my plants, thats it. Planting is tomorrow! In a longer perspective I will build a winter greenhouse next summer to be able to grow even more exciting stuff... The panes I have already got. I got them from a building project we did at work, they where supposed to get thrown away so I could have them for free and in the same time do some recycleing. :)

One sad thing is that this blog is over... Yet I have a new blog - acctually an old one I dug up at the blog cemetery. So from tomorrow you'll have to go to THE RAW AVOCADO!

I have truely enjoyed these one hundred days, and I'm grateful for all support I have gotten from you... I always love you!

Bye bye
and see you soon at The Raw Avocado

DAY ONE HUNDRED - short rapport

Hello love,

I've reached day one hundred today and is celebrating with saturday waterfast. I'm soooo happy and proud and at ease with my new routines. I love them. Thou I will make one change from tomorrow; my waterfast will be removed and replaced by a juice fast on Wednesdays (starting on Wednesday).

I have been kind of neglecting a lot of internet things lately, includiing this blog. I have felt a bit down and have struggled some with my feelings. I feel a lot better today thou and will return by the end of the day to wrap up these days of rawness.

Now I'm looking into the upcomming 30 days new "challenge". I'll come back to this later today... Have an outstanding day today.

I love you! and remember;
You are always beautiful!

Loving you
Is like loving me
It just comes naturally

And naturally

Brighter than the sun

/Slow Train

Today I ate my lunch in nature. It was soothing and I am now returning to "life".
I feel strong, calm and centered.

It's been a while so this is what I've been eating today so far.

1 litre of filtered alkalised water with nettlepowder
0,75 litres of green smoothie (250 g spinach, 1/2 cucumber, parsley, water)
1 litre of filtered alkalised water with nettlepowder
1 large salad (150 g leafy greens, 3/4 cucumber, sesame seed sprouts and avocado) plus
1 small tomato/zuchini salad (with olives, olive oil, sea salt and sundried tomatoes)

It's now 2 pm and I'm soon having another litre of filtered alkalised water with nettlepowder.

DAY EIGHTYONE - visions of tomorrow

Greetings beloved
Today I feel low, really low... and have done so for a couple of days. I feel empty, disillusionized, thinking about where I am in life. I woke up just to find that my vision and dreams do not match my current state even with all good will in the world, except for one thing - my family (Isak, Agnes and Linda). I'm constantly walking around in a bubble, daydreaming of being somewhere else...

As I opened my eyes I saw before me the glade where the kids used to play. Now they had walked with their mother to the gardens to prepare lunch. It was close to noon and I was starting to feel hungry. The sun was sprinkleing thru the leaves of the treas and the air was warm. A soft gust of wind made the leaves dance and the spots from the sun wink at me as I looked up. Something moved in the tree, probably a bird. I sat there for a while just staring. And then I moved my eyes to the glade and the small houses made of clay and wood surrounding it. I looked at the people working, relaxing and playing. About 20 persons divided in 6 families lived there, with only the most necessary contact with society.

The glade was really a permaculture garden filled with eatables. Right next to the glade, to the south and west, where the biodynamic allotments and on the east side was the lake. North of the small settlement was the fruit forest. It was also a cultivated forest made up of fruit trees, bushes with berries and nut trees. A couple of hundred meters to the northwest was the well. Pure spring water that flowed from the base of the ridge that streched from northeast to the west. Further south the landscape was more hilly and rough. I sat there with my own thoughts and didn't hear them comming. Suddenly someone put their hands over my eyes. I shrugged from the sudden occurance and tried to turn around. The person behind me danced along as I swung my body back and forth a couple of times and then she started to laugh.

I instantly recognised her soft voice. How could I not. I had seen her grow up from a small and helpless baby to becomming a strong and loving woman soon to turn seventeen. She was always happy, smiling almost constantly. She sat down beside me on mt left, my son on the opposite side of the table. As they did they set the table and I put my work down for the present. In a few seconds the table was set and as an angel she entered the scene. She was beautifully dressed in a light dress that brought out the best of her female body. She was as attractive on the outside as she was brilliant and loving on the inside. The shadows from the leaves danced over her and I felt the gratitude and love flood me. I smiled to her and she looked at me kindly, and then she let a warm smile conqour her face, almost knocking me of my chair. She put the food on the table and sat down on my right side. We united our hands in a circle and prepared for eating...

This is where I am - in my mind.
May all forces arise to make my dream come thru.

DAY SEVENTYFIVE - biodynamic effects?

Hello loved one

This is just a short stop. Today is celebration day. 3/4 of my challenge is behind me and only 25 days is before me. 1/4 remains; and then what?

I plan to stick with my routines. I feel great about them. Some of my initial routines have been forgottten thou those that mean something to me remains. This is my usual morning routine now:

¤ wake up
¤ drink 1 litre of water
¤ hatha yoga
¤ dry brushing (on weekends)
¤ cool shower/bath
¤ green smoothie breakfast (usually spinach, cucumber and fresh herbs, sometimes avocado)

¤ usally sallad for lunch and dinner with lots of greens
¤ raw snacks (I am not even tempted by anything less)

¤ >90% fresh raw food, <10%>95% raw
¤ 4 litres of filtered water with NaHCO3 and H2O2 (3 of 4 with nettle powder)
¤ 6-8 hours of sleep
¤ excersice 3-4 times per week (outside of morning yoga)
¤ 50-75% organic (depending on availibility)

The last days have been bringing me some concern, thou I have been eating well, high in greens. I had a high fever pitch Sunday evening (9th) reaching 40,4 C (104 F). On Monday it was gone by lunch. I also had a stinging feeling three times when I had a pee. Felt a bit like urethritis, thou after the third time the feeling disapeared. I also got a headache Sunday evening which peaked on Monday at noon yet I still have a slight feeling of pain when I shake my head lightly. My mouth feels sore, my teeth feels weak and brittle and my feces are a bit runny (sorry for bringing that up). I all changed on Sunday when a did a delayed waterfast (forgetting Saturday was Saturday). There is no good explanation for this except one that I can see.

Last week most food I ate was biodynamicly grown and locally produced. The food that did not fall into this category was at least organic. I got plenty of sleep, sunlight and water and excellent nourishment for my mind and soul as well. On Saturday I had a conventionally grown raw dinner and went to sleep... woke up on Sunday fasting. And by 6 pm I was starting to feel the first signs of fever - aching muscles. By nine I had my top score. My mouth and teeth (and also a sore on the lip) started to detoriate on Tuesday rather fast. From nothing to much in one day.

My only explanation is the food. Now I'm back home and the availibility of biodynamic food is non-existent and organic is between 50-75% of what I eat. Locally grown organic is almost non-existent as well, so most of that is shipped. I hope my body readjust fast. Still I'd rather have what I had last week. Thou I now have a new target, a new goal. Just have to find a creative way to get there. Move to the food or move the food to my store?

Today I'm grateful for the rain and having my sister on visit from Marocko. I love her very much.

What have life given you today that you can use in an empowering way tomorrow?

Infinite love and excellent health

DAY FIFTYNINE - the C.O.W.S. plan

Hello fellow humans

It's been a while and I wont be on for another week probably. I'm on vacation for three weeks. This upcomming week I will be at my parents in the south of Sweden. It'll be great fun to visit them. It always is. Still something is different this time. This time I'm on a 100 day utlimate health challenge, meaning I cannot under no circumstances eat outside the plan and I also have to keep my daily routine as accurate as possible; water and meditation-yoga-cold shower-breakfast. Start fast - finnish strong!

On the other hand, TODAY - not tomorrow - is the best day to change a bad habit. Today is the best day to let go of distructive behavour. Today is the best day to build confidence, self asteem and credability. Today is that day! I find it hard to stay "on the path" at my parents. My theory is that there is so much emotions being there, eating there. Being feed a standard diet with lots of love do not leave the heart untouched. It is good. It is fantastic to have had a childhood filled with love and joy and enough food. It have made me strong in who I am. My parents have always encouraged individual thinking and self confidence. And I have got just that - if I didn't I wouldn't even have started this raw journey in the first place, for it is totally against mainstream thinking and doing! Just being here demands strength from me. Going home will demand even more strength, yet I know I have it in me. I'm confident I will make it happen.

I thought I'd share a little info on my future eating habits with you. This will be a greater part of my diet within a few years. At the moment I'm focusing on the raw side with high alkalinity, yet I still eat a lot (2-10 per day) of sweet fruits and do not combine my foods very well (thou I am trying to at least for two meals a day). I strive towards Dr. Young's "C.O.W.S." Plan. The "C.O.W.S." Plan stands for the following:

"C" - Chlorophyll, Clay and Cleansing with green plant foods, green vegetable juices, liquid chlorophyll, and montmorillonite clay.

"O" - Oxygen and Oil including daily exercise for at least 1 hour and 2 to 3 ounces of unsaturated oil from avocado, hemp, pomegarnate, pumpkin, flax and olive.

"W" - Water that is pure and ionized at a pH of 9.5 and an electrical potential of -150 mV.

"S" - Salt and sunshine with an increase in sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium mineral salts and 30 minutes a day of sunshine.

I will also increase my grounding time to at least 4 hour per day and my outdoor time to at least two hours every day.

Today I'm grateful for the excellent health choices I have made today. I'm thankful for having spent the day alone with my daugher. I love life - and life loves me!

Until next time, LOVE, LAUGH and BE TRUE!

DAY FIFTYTHREE - do it right the first time!

My dear friend,

thanks for the sunshine you bring to my life.

A few days ago I decided to listen in (again) on an outstanding webinar called "100 day challenge" with Gary Ryan Blair (from which my challenge originated, I find some of the knowledge shared in that webinar very profound for me and thought I'd share it with you. This is the philosophy:

Do it right the first time is not about being perfect.
It's about changeing perspective and improving your performance.

So pay attention to your behavour - it never lies! Find out when/where flaws occur, work proactively to adress these flaws in your behaviour so quality performance can take place.

Why then?
Because failure is more expencive than quality. It costs having to do the job again. For me meaning to have to set up for a new 100 day challenge similar to this one. I want to improve and add on in the next one, not do it all over. So I'm implementing a new strategy:

T.N.T - Today, Not Tomorrow

When is the best time to start fresh? When is the best time to eat raw? When is the best time to improve my health? When is the best time to resolve a crisis?

The answer is given; today, not tomorrow. Simple and powerful. Also success attracts people and oppertunities which impacts life positively. Success allows for the expansion of options, and network. And success builds good reputation and credability. Doing it right the first time grows boldness and confidence which allows for greater action. Doing it right the first time demonstrates values that leads to success and inspires to take on greater challenges with supreme confidence and boldness. So (apart from T.N.T) I will:

1) Raise my standards
2) Implement best practices
3) Set challenging goals (done)
4) Make excellence a core value

To clearify point four I also have to include the wise words of a bloved friend on excellence.

"I think one of the things that has helped me in my life is learning the difference between Excellence and Perfection... Perfection is usually this mark that I can never reach but excellence... well, excellence is a worthy and achievable goal."

I like her words. They're so simple. So down to earth, they just jump into your heart and makes you realise the simplicity of it. Excellence is a n achievable goal, perfection is beyond reach.
