My husband and I have joined RFR for an 11 week challenge. We will be trying to be high raw 80% and doing a 10,000 walking step challenge. I was part of the original Raw Food Rehab conducted by Penni Shelton. Yesterday Tim and posted our measurements and weight on the site. We will be weighing in weekly for 11 weeks. It is great for accountability and encouragement. We still have to post our before pictures (we are having camera issues right now). My goals for the next 11 weeks....
Get 8 hours of sleep
Drink at least 64 oz of water daily
Movement everyday-walking and other
Eat only whole foods
Stay 100% raw for an entire week
Journal journal journal
Try one new recipe a week
Away we go

I have to say that I am glad. I did very well at the beginning of the month but towards the end, I failed miserably. I am a bit of a news junkie (which I wanted to do this in the first place-I had had it with the so called network and cable news). I will say my son was awesome! It never watched it and when I did turn it on for a minute, he would come through the room and say BUSTED. I will do this again. We did have a lot more time to do the other activities we love reading, listening to music and playing games. I did not get to scrapbook at all but I look to do more of that in the winter.
I love this time of year. The break of summer and the crispness of the autumn air. At our house it is also bringing big changes. My husband and I will start a challenge of raw food for 11 weeks and son is still doing gluten free pancakes. We will be trying some new recipes for GF bread this weekend. I have not found one he likes yet. My hope is that my son will join in on many of the raw food meals with us, but I am happy with the GF for now for him.
