So the last time I was here sharing my "wonderful" words with each of you... I had decided it was time to take back my bad habits and turn them into something new. Well... I thought it was past time for an update.
Soda - I no longer drink it. At all. Seriously. Went from drinking 64 ounces of the DEW to drinking 0 ounces of the DEW. It was rough... understatement of the century. I do occasionally still drink a coke slushie... but it's a treat. NOTHING like it was before. The caffeine headaches were ATROCIOUS!! But I know that my body is so much better without all of it.
Meat - I no longer eat it. Okay... so maybe an occasional hot dog... but they aren't really meat, right? I watched the movie "Forks over Knives" and was inspired to try the whole plant based nutrition deal. I'm a HUGE steak and potatoes girl... cheeseburgers are my weakness. BUT... I haven't had one since April. Crazy stuff! I don't miss meat... not even one teensie, tiny little bit. Figuring out what to eat has been the hardest... I know now that I HATE tofu. NASTY, NASTY stuff.
Fitness - well... I'm HUGELY lacking in this area. I was doing SO GOOD.... then I got sick, the kids got sick, and VOILA... there goes all the progress I made. I might start walking again this week... I have a handy, dandy new pedometer (a FITBIT... so fun!) that has been helpful. It's fun to see how many steps I've walked in a day... and how many flights of stairs I've gone up (and down). I really need to find some inspiration or a work out buddy... apparently both are helpful :).
So that's my update. I might start blogging again... it's kind of fun (I'm such a dork... can't believe I just wrote that). Maybe I'll post the successful meat-free meals we have here in Schwadville. Let me tell you... we've had the good, the bad, and the REALLY ugly!
Peace out for now my little blogging peeps!!!!
