It's been awhile since I have written a blog here (shame on me!), and that's because I have had some difficulties with the vegan diet. Well actually the diet isn't what's the problem, it's more the change in lifestyle and my motivation..
Eveyone who knows me, knows that I am a very impulsive person. I jump into everything blindsided and very enthousiastic. Staying enthousiastic and persisting in something has alwas been my problem. Although I must say that I finished med school, so it's not as if I've never finished anything in my life. I can and have been very persistent with some other things in life. I have also noticed that the last years I have settled down and quited down in more than one way. But being impulsive is a part of me, and also a part I treasure as it makes life less boring. I have actually never regreted an impulsive action (mostly).
But this time I have done it again. After reading the book skinny bitch I jumped onto the 'vegan-wagon', bought books and an entire supply of vegan foods as I was insisting I would do this for the rest of my life. And I still think it's the best and healthiest diet there is. But as life has been a little stressfull lately (boyfriend and I both work shifts), I failed miserably. I started eating cheese again (hello fat that's back on my hips and belly), but I stayed off the meat as I don't ever want to eat a corpse again. Although I must admit that I had a little peace of meat last night when I had too much alcohol...
But as of tomorrow I'll try again.Why? Well as I've never felt so healthy and alive as when I ate vegan. To have energy at the end of a long day was wonderful! So I keep wondering WHY did I fell off the wagon when I felt so good eating vegan? I think a person in a stress situation tends to fall back on his old ways. And that's what I did. And although it sucks feeling low on energy, it's easier to grab an unhealthy meal than to think of a vegan meal when you are not completely used to it yet.
So tomorrow it's back to green monsters, quinoa, and loads of fruits and veggies! And it's back to blogging again as I still have a long lists of posts I want to share with you guys!
Lots of love,
