it has been a very long time since I have made a post. I have to Christmas and New Years was rough. Totally fell of the Vegan wagon and ate lots of meat and bad food. The downside is I now weigh again what I did when I started. I also feel awful. Tired, lack of energy, bloated and just generally not feeling very well.
This brings me to today. I am back on the wagon and firmly back into the vegan lifestyle. I am using livestrongs Daily Plate to keep track of what I am eating as a way to make my eating more conscious. Even when I was eating fully vegan I had the desire to stuff my face all the time. Tracking what I eat keeps me from stuffing my face.
Health wise I need to start exercising as well. I am in such bad cardiovascular shape that climbing stairs leaves me winded. Pretty sad. I am going to slowly get back into exercise. So for the first couple of weeks it will be 30 minutes a day of cardio or strength training. I find if I do too much too soon I end up sick and then lose the will to continue.
I have learned that moderation is not for me. People always tell why not just eat moderately instead of 100% vegan. Well beside the obvious health reasons I have not moderation in me. If there is a bag of chips or a pound of bacon it will be devoured.
While I am at it I am trying to cut out TV and read more. I find TV to be such a time sucker and I figure I can use that time for other things. So keep watching for updates....
