All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena
Personal philosophy, lifestyle and diet of the author of this fruitarian site, a long-term vegan fruitarian Lena.
Nishi Shiki was invented in 1927 by Katsuzō Nishi, the chief engineer for the Tokyo subway and an aikido teacher.
Most of my life I followed the first four rules every day, and substituted the rest with yoga asanas.
On most mornings I do all or some of the exercises and postures on this list, all slightly modified for my needs over the years, some named for convenience - I used to memorize the best sequence this way. I used to start with Surya Namaskara, but lately I've been leaving it out.
Another walk and run along a destructed river and by a lake in Southern California: walking, jumping, running, accelerating, elements of ballet training, stretching, grand battement ([batmɑ̃], a movement in which both legs are kept straight and one leg is kicked outward from the body and in again). A few thoughts on freedom of mind, personal marketing on youtube, critique on building communities of loyal followers as a marketing strategy, "begging" for money and attention, cost of making videos.
Today I did one of my longest swims in open waters: over 3.5 km (3.5K), not counting curves, waves, zigzag swimming to avoid kelp, kayakers, fishermen, birds, and even one big seal.
This is my 3rd consecutive day swimming in the ocean, ~ 2 km (2K), ~ 2.7 km (2.7K) in two previous days, plus brisk walks up and down the hills (~ 110 m slope) 5 km (5K), 7 km (7K), and 10km (10K) today. Earlier this Summer I swam 3-4 times a week, but not regularly.
This Summer I was swimming in the ocean as usual, and also in a bay a few times, but today I went to a University pool (UCSD) not far from here.
Wow, that was so great: I could concentrate on swimming itself, rhythm and pleasure of moving in the water, and there were no waves splashing in my face from all directions, no crazy surf like the other day on the Torrey Pines beach that you need to cross with some beating to get to deeper calmer waters, and no sharks, - man, I learned yesterday that pretty much every time you enter the ocean there is a shark more or less 100 meters away from you, I woke up at night thinking about it, - and no people on your way (especially disturbing for me were the boaters lately).
It was an amazing time! I did close to 1 kilometer, 40 laps, in under half an hour.
