Hey everyone! It's been a while since I posted anything on SparkPeople, that's because I made a commitment to ONLY go online if I need to check my email/bank account or if I really needed to look something up.
I feel like I've completely changed myself for the better. I went from playing games all the time, not exercising, feeling stuck and having a quarter life crisis . And now I'm at peace with myself, making the most out of each day without the games and internet wasting my life away.
I've finally decided to go vegan. Iv'e been Pesco Pollo Vegetarian for a long long time. naturally over the years I started eating less and less meat (chicken, fish) because they didn't taste as good anymore (and because how messed up our very cruel farming system is now). A week ago I really TRIED to eat chicken but hated the taste. I felt like I was a little girl, being forced to eat broccoli or something lol. This may sound weird to you, but I felt like that was a sign my body was trying to tell me that "I'm ready".
The only reason I didn't go vegan before was the whole protein thing. People would say to me, "you cant get enough protein on a vegan diet!" - which so soooo false! right now for breakfast I'm eating 16g of protein which is coming from quinoa and black beans. I can add some marinated tofu to get even more protein if I desire. A woman's body really only needs 50g of protein, I'm already almost half way there and I've only ate breakfast.
Aside from all that, I got a new job. It's at a bakery in Albertsons. No, i'm not tempted whats so ever to eat their sweets. trust me, it's gross and highly processed! I don't know how anyone can eat anything from there. Everything is already pre packaged/ pre cooked, even the cake and bread! yes, it may say "freshly baked!" - but the reality is, it came in frozen. All we had to do is un thaw it and cook it. So basically everything we serve is like a TV Dinner.
I'll still be sparking a few times a week but it wont be an everyday thing anymore. If you have any questions about anything in this blog, just comment below!
