1/11

Still resting up and focusing on healing/recovery to attain the health I desire.
Still all raw 80/10/10 style eating things like:
smoothies of dates and water
smoothies of bananas and water
fresh valencia orange juice with lots of pulp
salads with romaine, tomatoes, cucumber
spiralized zucchini spaghetti noodles with sauce made from blended tomato, mango, celery, lemon juice, dates - this is an awesome savory option!

I'll be lifting weights again soon.

Feeling pretty good.
I think I'll be all set to start training next week.
Ate about 3000 cals again yesterday!:
2 date smoothies
2 banana smoothies
1 banana/spinach smoothie
baby spinach, 2 tomatoes, celery, and lemon juice salad

I'm getting a case of organic valencia oranges today and hopefully a case of almost ripe bananas...they take so long to ripen in my house this time of year.

On my way to perfect health.
Doing better still. Just about completely over my head cold.
Eating over 3000 cals is becoming routine...hope to keep it up but am worried about my stock of bananas as I could only find green ones yesterday and they won't ripen at my (cold) house. So I'll be searching the markets today. Here's what I ate yesterday:
2 date/blueberry smoothies
3 banana smoothies
5 oz. baby lettuces with tomato, celery, lemon juice.
1 brazil nut

My digestion has been good and I have good energy.
I would like to be able to eat more at one sitting and not eat so much throughout the day but I'll get there.

Finally back at it!

Flat Bench: 72.2 lbs x 10 reps x 4 sets
Rows: 72.2 lbs x 10 reps x 4 sets
Chinups: 6/3/4/3
Incline Bench: 63.6 lbs x 12, 52.4 lbs x 12, 43.6 lbs x 12 x 2

Tough getting back into it but I'm stoked.
Been able to stay all raw and incorporating more greens and green juices.
Today I had a banana smoothie, 2 date smoothies, half a small watermelon, 4 mangoes, and baby spinach.
I'm going to make some fresh oj and eat more greens with some tomato and maybe an avocado.

1/4 of a watermelon
4 date/blueberry smoothies
2/3 of a pineapple
2 mangoes
juice of 3/4 lb kale, 3 ribs celery, 1.5 apples

1/25

Yesterday's Workout:

Deadlifts: 115 lbs x 10 reps x 5 sets
BB Curls: 35.8 lbs x 10 reps x 5 sets
Planks: 4 x failure

Food:

~3300 cals
2 date/blueberry smoothies
2 banana smoothies
2 banana/raspberry/baby spinach smoothies
5 oz. Spring Mix (baby lettuces)

Starting light on the deadlifts. The 10 rep sets are tough and I am out of shape so this was equally a conditioning and strength workout.
I need to eat more!

~3800 cals yesterday:
2 banana smoothies
2 date/blueberry smoothies
2 mango/fresh orange juice smoothies
~10 oz. baby spinach, broccoli sprouts, celery, tomato, avocado

feeling a bit tired today. i need to eat more food earlier in the day so hopefully i won't wake up so much during sleep. i have been able to eat more in a sitting so hopefully i'll be able to increase my total calories or at least eat more food earlier in the day.

Hey man, just curious, you're LFRV? When you say "1 smoothie" is that 1L / 32oz?
