So sue me. I weighed in a cuple days late…
So tomorrow is the last day of the month. That means that I made my goal officially of losing 5+ lbs a month. Tally is 6.2 lbs. Not bad at all! Its weird how much of a difference that 6 lbs can make. My work uniform fits better, and my clothes do as well. I have a grey pair of pants that I adore but havent been able to wear that I can wear now. How fab is that?
So an analysis of the last month:
- I need to exercise more. I just didnt do enough! But baby steps right? I have the ankle injury to contend with.
- I have done okay with the CC. BUT I cant keep up with it.
- I have ate WAY less fast food this month. Baybe like 3 days this month did I eat it. That counts the thin crust veggie lovers Pizza.
So my DH has gone vegan since January 1st. He lost some weight, and says he feels a ton better than he did before. He has suggested that I go vegan for a month, and see what happens.
Hmmmmmm….. that is something I have not done before. I mean- I tried it for like a week when the ‘granola fashion fad’ blew theough my life in the 90’s, but thats about it. I am wondering how it can be good for me. Alicia Silverstone is a vegan. And she is HOT! You can tell the difference in her body since she has changed her lifestyle.
So I think I am going to give it a go. It will be a hard lifestyle to work with, but I am going to try it. Baby steps huh? Check out www.goveg.com. I have some foods to consume (I am not a fan of wasting food) before I begin, but I still have a day or too. Couple of Healthy Choice meals left. Im still going to cook meat for the kids. I cant deny them, but on the other hand, it will be good for them to eat healthier. We will see how it goes???
***EDIT- So I read a little more about vegitarianism. I have Lupus (SCLE), and I have read numerous accounts about how this lifestyle can CURE or greatly reduce the symptoms of Lupus. Lupus is a goofy ass disease as it is, and maybe this can help me? I hate my meds, and I am tired of the flares and being sick…. I have also learned the difference between vegan and vegetarian. I am going to start out with vegetarian… vegans are those who will NOT eat meat, fish, chicken, eggs, milk or have anything to do with animal products or by-products. Vegetarians will not eat meat fish or chicken, but WILL consume eggs and dairy.
