So, I've been missing lately, some of you may have noticed. Not only has the weather gotten nicer which steers me outdoors but I needed to rethink my goals. In college I had a problem with letting my diet life take over for my real life, so I wanted to make sure that this new lifestyle I am trying life by fits. I tend to let the diet take over when I should be more in control. So, I took some time off to get myself out of a "diet depression" and regroup my goals and think about my future to keep things rolling and lose the rest of the weight. It is more emotional than physical.
As an update, my husband and I are still being good vegans. We absolutely love being vegan - it's a challenge sometimes when we go out to eat but that doesn't stop us from going out and enjoying ourselves. We are also running, although not everyday because it is seriously too hot out. Plus, our townhouse community gym (it's our only gym we go to) has had the AC unit broken and also the two treadmills. Not uncommon but a little annoying seeing that we want to workout but the gym is overly heated and outdoors can be dangerous with the heat advisories. So, sometimes we just take it easy and go for strolls at night when it gets cooler - which our pooch doesn't mind one bit! In addition to that, I'm walking at least ten minutes each morning to get my blood flowing before breakfast - it seems to wake me up more and I tend to not want to eat as much food this way. Unfortunately, just as before I have not lost any weight but at least now I'm in a better mental state to attack my trouble with losing the last pounds. I'm eager to start fighting harder than ever to get my life in order and work off those pounds.
