Look out world...

Breakfast- 6 bananas

Lunch- 4 oranges sliced, 3 shredded carrots, 2 sticks celery diced

Dinner- 7 bananas

Exercise has not been a part of my routine for about six weeks now, ever since I chose (Yes, it was a choice; I didn't have to do it! See Raw Blog April 20.) to have surgery on my toes.  The results were good, there have been no complications, but I haven't been doing any vigorous exercise and I think it is beginning to have a negative impact.  I've been going through a lot of personal change and transition and free floating depression has been a problem.  So it's time to ask myself some pointed questions:

  • Am I willing to make a commitment to reincorporate vigorous exercise into my life?
  • Am I willing to keep consumption of fat and prepared raw foods to a minimum?
  • Am I willing to do what ever it takes to be sure that I have the abundance of fresh organic fruit and greens that I need?

I believe that answering yes and following through with these questions will provide myself (or anyone else) a tremendous boost in my sense of wellbeing.  My toes may not be quite ready for running, which is my favorite vigorous exercise, but there are many other options.  Today it's repetitive sets of push ups, yoga, dips, and crunches.  Look out world, I'm coming back!

By the way, I've had really great results with my toes.  If you think you may need some professional help with your feet, consider seeing Doctors Paul Greenberg or Rick Delmonte at Belvedere Podiatry Group.  These guys have the utmost professionalism and integrity, and they listen.  We walk on concrete, we wear ill fitting shoes and sometimes this results in problems, and we might need help.  Ciao!
