Day 9 on Water Fast

Sometimes I just don't have anything to say.

To know one's self is a beautiful thing.

Peachy keen

Day 8 on Water Fast

I soaked the sun in a few minutes when I was out and when I got home today, and it was heaven.

It was better today, on all levels.

My energy is precious. I do not waste it.

I am learning to be efficient, through improved organization. I extend myself less.

Mmmmm that looks so good~ melons I so want them at the end of my fast.

At the moment, warm water goes down better.

Work it

Day 5 on Water Fast

Focus. Stretch. Work out. I am doing the strattle splits again. Getting there on the dips, with 4 at 1/3 of the way. Also attempted bench pressing. 30 push-ups.

Going to bed early tonight.

Pleasant dreams.

Sunny Sunday

Day 4 of Water Fast

I sense that my body has come to an equilibrium with the water fast. I am comfortably pleasant, with an abundant supply of energy.

I am reading The Forest People by Colin Turnbull and The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird.

It was a beautiful, cold and sunny day. I sunbathed and took a walk. A beautiful little bird with a red hue on the top of its head was chirping beautifully, atop the cherry tree in the front yard.

A couple of the messages I recall from the service today:

"If you don't make decisions for yourself, then others will make them for you." -A lesson learned by Ronald Reagan
"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Have a blessed day.

Ceaseless Awareness

Day 3 of Water Fast
I am seeking to take a look at all of life, and to see what is significant to me, that which holds value.
I am noticing more energy today, and an inclination towards exercise.
I read Arnold Ehret's Rational Fasting. I have a lot of old waste in my gut to clear out. I am going to continue on this water fast, and afterwards I am looking to do something to get that waste and debris out.
My New Personal Best's in Fitness:
*4 mins 5 seconds on "the plank"
*100 cobras
*125 squats
*110 push-ups on the knees
*150 sit-ups.

The Fasting State

Day 2 of Water Fast
I am currently transitioning into the Fasting state, which is expected to occur on or after the 3rd day. Fasting is not rough if I think about all the good work that is being done. I also think upon all those around the world who fast, not always by choice. There is a strength that shines through, even though the body is digesting itself. Then again, I am only on day 2.

"The Secret Life of Plants, pt. 3"
From my experience, I have witnessed that plants respond to my intentions. With my best intentions, I observed kamut grass grow with 100% yield and tall, green, beautiful grass blades. I was protective of this growing plant's wellbeing. I wanted to see each of the seeds thrive, with the best of care.

In experiments conducted by Masaru Emoto, author of The Hidden Message of Water, the effect words, songs, images, and intentions have on water were photographed. His experiments demonstrate that words, theorized to carry a vibration, create the structure of water in living things. I conducted the "Cooked Rice Experiment" and spoke onto the rice in Jar A with words of disdain, rejection, and repulsion. Jar A contained rice covered with yellow and green moldly spots, and a black cobweb-like growth. I spoke onto the rice in Jar B with words of appreciation, affirmation, and adoration. The rice in Jar B remained well-preserved, untainted, and free of mold. Behold, the power of words, and of thoughts.

What if life wasn't meant to be competition, but mutual respect, compassion, and love? What if life was created to be symmetrical and harmonious? What if we are all connected, to a degree, and sense each other's pain and joy?

I hope to reconnect with this.


I am feeling very blessed

Water Fast

I am starting on my Water Fast today. If I need a little juice in the mornings before work or to complete my new Personal Bests in fitness, then I may have some. Other than for these two factors, I will be on water.
To let go of the waste and to keep the good. To cleanse from impurities (salt, pesticides, residues, chemicals) and to return to instincts to sense what is beneficial to this life (organic fruit).

Getting started

I was determined to get cleaned out on the inside. I did Salt Water Flushes every morning for three days, flushing through me at least 3 quarts of warm water with 2 tsps sea salt per quart. (The recommendation is just 1 quart of warm water with 2 tsps sea salt). It works well! I drank fresh squeezed grapefruit and lemon juice for hydration. Then I moved on to some fruit and a bit of greens. I am starting to enjoy the high that comes from the foods or from fasting (or from being), more than the tastes from foods. For example, I look forward to squeezed lemon juice over cucumbers and tomatoes for the whole refreshing experience of it.

I am also making new personal bests! 102 sit-ups and 75 push-ups on the knees. 187 lying leg-lifts. I did "the plank," where you hold the push-up position but rest on your elbows, for 2 minutes 30 seconds. I did the "wall sit" for 4 minutes 5 seconds. I am also really enjoying taking my run-walk cycles out on the high school track. The wind, sun, and greenery are my friends.

I am inspired to see great quality produce :-)

Here are some of my influences to go Fruitarian and quotes of theirs. There are many more, and I hope to add to the list... and I hope I can be one, too, if I can just learn to stick with Fruitarianism...
From Left to Right: Top row- Richard Blackman (Fruitarian One), Kveta, Suvine, Anne (FruitbatAnne). Bottom row- Jules, Sarah.
I have them to thank for their positive influences in the world, for showing that it can be done. I hope it can be done in my life, too... otherwise, this blog would be meaningless.
This blog is here to see if it is possible for me to live the Fruitarian lifestyle successfully. If I can do it, this blog will thrive. If I cannot do it, then this blog would not be true to its name, and it has potential to display a flowering into Fruitarianism, doesn't it? I envision it, the possibility of thriving on fruit and fitness. I receive it.
So it is written, so let it be done.


Hi, my name is Tinah, I'm 22 years young, and I am going Fruitarian.

My influences towards the raw vegan lifestyle are Angela Stokes, Storm Talifero, Jinjee Talifero, Victoria Boutenko, Igor, Sergei, Valya Boutenko, Gabriel Cousens, Ann Wigmore and her sidekick Robert Smith, Shazzie, StarChristy, Dr. Doug Graham, and David Wolfe.

My influences towards the Fruitarian lifestyle are Richard Blackman, Kveta, Mango, Jules, FruitbatAnne, Suvine, Harmony and Neo.

I have only experienced 28 days straight of Raw Vegan, and only just under 3 weeks on the Fruitarian lifestyle.

These experiences showed me the way Nature intended it to be, without the complications I had come to think of as "normal," including slugglish bowels, body odor, a coated tongue, bad morning breath, scaly thick bumpy skin, pimples and blackheads, discharge, painful menstrual cramps with a heavy flow, food coma, headaches, irritability, inability to retain new information, a stuffy head, swollen puffy skin, joints that ache and grind with movement, and accelerated aging among the symptoms.

Who knew? Life does not have to be lived that way at all. I make the decision tonight to go 100% Fruitarian, along with greens for the transition. From the examples set by others, I estimate that greens would assist me in the transition for the first two years. This decision is serious, and my life is not going to be by any means "normal" in the view of society, but my previous attempts at going Raw Vegan have helped me to know myself and have prepared me for this major breakthrough.

To being a steward of Fruitarianism,
