weight loss. humana. veganism. birthdays.

It’s been a while since I posted here. Honestly, it’s been a little too hectic in my life to really sit down and write anything. I also really haven’t had anything to say, so that has prevented me from using my energy and free time to post anything of importance. I lost weight this past week, and am feeling really good. I had wanted to get into more of an exercise routine, but I realized after eating horribly a couple of times and still losing that my body is getting plenty of work just being at…well, work. If the past two days of my FitBit are any indication, I think you’ll agree that it’s for the best. I’ve been doing over 10,000 steps just at work alone. While it would be awesome to workout and do as much at work, it really doesn’t make sense to me right now. I don’t have as much free time to devote to it, and if I did I risk cutting into much needed down time and sickness. I can NOT get sick, so I’m doing what’s best for my body now. Once work slows out and I end the season exercise will need to be put back into my every day life. I tell ya, the best diet is the Humana Festival diet.

My vegan diet has been going swimmingly. I love it. It truly is like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. It’s not as hard as I thought it would be, which is even more reassuring that there can be success. That being said, I haven’t been faced with a restaurant or being somewhere where there is next to nothing in vegan choices, but for now it’s great. I really do love it, it’s been putting my mind at ease and I’ve been really creative when it comes to cooking and eating.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 29. Eek! The time flies by so quickly. How am I almost 30? It’s so scary. My parent officially put their house for sale too. The picture of the “For Sale” post my mom sent me in e-mail threw me. I have to make it down during the summer before I don’t have another option too. Life is happening too quickly for me right now. It’s kind of overwhelming. But that’s how it goes, doesn’t it?

Even though those parts of life are going by fast, I’m enjoying my weightloss, my new found diet, and the energy I have regained. Those aspects only push me to know that I am in the right path, and I want to do everything I can to continue. I even synced my twitter account with my youtube. That’s huge for me, I’m a pretty private person (especially when it comes to people I actually know) so unlocking that one step was a huge turning point for me. Doing the videos and keeping up with the blog is helping me come out of my shell a little bit more. Babys steps, but I’m getting there


New beginnings….round two

So here’s another attempt at creating a vlog on the internets. Hopefully this one will help me get motivated, and back to where I was at the begining of the summer. I was in a really good place, exercising, or at least moving every day and mindful of my eating. I was watching what servings really are, and making smarter, healthier decisions. I was happy, and it felt great.

The downfall came during the summer stock gig I had where the combination of eating cafeteria food and the emotional depressive state that I became in, I threw out my good habits all together. The first week was great, and then from that day onward for the next two months I ate crap, and then went and got more crap from fast food places.

It was not an ok path for me, I understand this. But I can’t let one set back ruin my chances of turning my life around for the better. I can look at what happened this summer as a learning experience. I can deconstruct it, and be able to change for the better. I’m excited to look at it as this. It will be good for me.

Now that that’s out of the way, onto the present! I started back up on my Youtube channel, which I think will help out immensely. It will almost hold me accountable, and I hate failure in front of groups, so psychologically it helps. I also can look back on it and find things that helped, and those that helped. It’s a great catalogue of the journey.
