Easy is over-rated.
Easy is lazy.
Not that I WANT everything to be hard. Some stress is good for the body. It is what builds bone and muscle and intelligence.
Easy doesn't get you results that you can be proud of.
So, lately, I have realized that I trend my life towards "easy". Or, do I?
I am 41 years old, back in school full-time, working, a Mom, a homeowner (almost), in a relationship (back together again). Nothing about my choices seems to be "easy".
I think I love drama. Perhaps that's why I never seem to lose weight.
Now, I want to try vegetarianism. I want to eat healthy, yummy, no animal based foods. Not the EASY choice. Certainly, I will have the folks in my immediate life in an uproar. Why would you do that? will be the first question they will ask.
Well, I just saw a documentary that gave some very compelling information/science about how Western diet is KILLING Americans. Animal proteins CAUSE disease. Plant-based diets reverse heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, etc.
I have been here before. Excited. Motivated. Scared straight.
Not sure how long this will last. I hope long enough for me to get healthy, results, off medicine, and truly happy about how I look and feel.
One day at a time...
