Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my journey
Monday, November 30, 2009
Well my birthday came and went but the weight was still there. Thanksgiving came and went and although I didn't gain (WooHoo) I didn't lose either. I've been doing fairly well being a vegetarian but I've been overdoing it a bit on the carbs and sweets so tomorrow I'm going to begin a 24 day raw vegan personal challenge.
Trying veganism is something I've been wanting to do for a while but felt ill equipped for. I've once again gone head first into information overload but I do know that I won't be getting rid of any suede shoes or leather jackets! So why am I doing this? First and foremost my health. Secondly I'm dying to get rid of this perpetual brain fog and I'd kill to wake up before my alarm goes off and jump out bed with the energy of a teenager! I don't think this will be a permanent lifestyle change for me but who knows. I don't plan on being too strict on myself but I am making a commitment to give 110% for the next 3 weeks.
I will weigh in tonight and take measurements and pics. Then I will weigh in again on the 8th, 15th and 22nd. I'm sincerely hoping that all you Sparkers out there to hold me accountable and provide me with lots of tough love through this journey but for the first time in more than 10 years I plan to welcome the New Year at least 10 lbs lighter (God willing), healthier and happier.
