thecityveggie asked: what is the 100 days challenge? :)


Answer:

It’s a challenge I’ve set myself to conclude 2014 with some really positive changes. As of tomorrow, there will be 100 days until the end of the year, and I want to see how much I can achieve in this time. More info here :)

100 Days Challenge!

… begins tomorrow! For me anyway :) (more info here) Day 1 will be tomorrow (September 23rd) which will make Day 100 fall on December 31st! Currently working on the plan… which is definitely going to incorporate some new fitness goals. It’s so good to hear I won’t be doing this alone! :D How’s the plan going for everyone else? Can you visualize the changes?

What could you change in 100 days?

I was considering my own goals a few days ago, and realised there are just over 100 days until the end of the year! This reminded me of a challenge I set myself last year (this one, in fact). I’ve found myself pondering once again, how I could change my life in 100 days.

I like the concept of a set period in which to sustain repetition of a task or action in order to create a positive change on a larger scale. Say for instance you want to tone up, and one of your chosen methods is squats, for example. Doing 50 squats on one day will not achieve this, but doing 50 squats 4 or 5 times a week over 100 days is likely to create a very noticeable change. Or, if you want to drink more water or eat better, having a clear goal to sustain this for 100 days will allow you to prove to yourself how much better you can feel. Plus, it’ll give you an amazing head-start on the new year! We are what we repeatedly do! ;)

I’m planning on creating some kind of motivational poster over the next day or so to inspire my commitment to the challenge. Who’s with me? :p

figgypopz asked: How many servings of fruit would you say you eat per day? And do you ever allow yourself to eat cooked food, like once in a while? Also, if you do eat cooked food after eating 100% raw for a long period of time, how does it make you feel?


Answer:

Hello :)

Sorry it’s taken me a couple of days to reply (soo much has been happening!). In terms of fruit, it depends on what you class as a serving :p The vast majority of the time, I have at least two fruit meals per day (usually with raw leaves). I live in a kind of rural town where good quality fruit varies between being readily available and virtually non-existent! For this reason (and sometimes to keep costs down), I do still have a cooked evening meal sometimes, which tends to be steamed rice & veg. 

However, cooked food never makes me feel as good as raw. Comparatively, I feel sluggish and tired after eating cooked, and this is all the more apparent when I go for long periods eating raw. I do know that I am getting in some solid nutrients from my cooked meals, so despite the fact they never have me dancing around the room, I am grateful and reassured that I am not depriving my body. One thing I’ve noted with eating cooked food, is that I need to drink A LOT more water to stay hydrated. If I ever neglect to do so, I certainly know about it the next morning!

Hey there! I’d love your input (:

I’ve just added the key nutritional content for a couple of recent meals (here and here). I was wondering how many people would find this useful as a regular addition to my personal meal posts?

Also, is there anything else you’d like to see more or less of?

Let me know what you think. Your input would be hugely appreciated ♥
