My goal for 2014 is to be vegan by 2015. It's not too far off what I love or enjoy eating, but I will need to give up dairy, eggs, and revamp by makeup stash...I will not be a hippie looking vegan! Lol so I give myself the year to get and locate things I love that taste yummy and make me pretty :)
I decided to look into the JayZ and Beyoncé thing because...well.... They are hip hop royalty and look great and even though she made a big "oh no she di'nt" in the process, they did bring more people to try and either incorporate meat free meals and or try the vegan lifestyle.
I honestly don't feel it's as drastic as other feel it is...my love of animals is almost ridiculous...but it is what it is and I love them more than humans :) and Facebook has allowed people to be even more educated about what animals go through so we can eat and look pretty and it's sick...I personally don't want to be a part of it,
I have a pic on my closet door (my vision board) that says: Being Vegan Means I am trying to suck less" and that's pretty perfect!
So...on my Facebook page and Instagram I'll be sharing my pics and reviews of things I find on my year long journey. it's not my job to preach...I hate being preached to...but just show you stuff that you may not have thought of or wondered about...plus give my honest opinion on taste and how beauty products work etc. I live in New Zealand and things aren't as easy to get as in the states, but the world in changing,
I do recommend that you watch "Forks Over Knives" and educate yourself where your food comes from and how what you eat effects your body :) give yourself that 90 minutes!

After my last blog, i still waffled with my food intake a bit...my brain has been a bit fuzzy...been an emotional couple of weeks and this time is really hard for me since moving to New Zealand. BUT I attended a Christmas party for Age Concern (who I volunteer with) and it was the first time in 7 years I felt a little Christmasy :) It was nice. I don't know why but it FELT like the holidays...and that's what I'm usually missing...THE FEELING! I can't get use to warm weather, BBQ and Christmas at the same time...freaks me out. :) I'm a Midwestern Girl!
So..it's taken me a little while, but strapped on my BodyMedia armband at midnight, started tracking again, and have my man finally taking care of himself so I can focus on me...ahhhhhh....no reason not to rock out 2014! :) Now...to propel my Stampin' Up! business into full time dollars! Yea Baby!

As some of you know I have been going through some wacko things with my muscles and nerves and that "they" want to reboot my central nervous system...
Well...I said no to all the drugs they were giving me to try...yes, some helped the pain, yes, some helped my anxiety, but it made me feel like an emotionless turd...that is so NOT me. No thanks!
I decided to try something...I stopped drinking green tea everyday (caffeine makes your nerves active...I didn't need that), I started wearing my mouth guard because of my headaches and anxiety, and I because I had a bit of soreness one night, I tried taking 2 Panadol....I have done the same thing for over a week and I feel great! Started getting back on my eating plan, and walking and I actually feel good.
Weird how simple things work sometimes. :) I think unless you experience stuff it's hard for you to tell people what to do. Doctors that don't know how it feels...anyone remember that movie with Denzel Washington where he would touch people and they would feel what he feels??? I often feel that way. Pay attention to your body. Trust your gut, and don't be afraid to try things that are logical and make sense to you!
Have a great week!
