so, here i am. telling you everything i ate for a week. so exciting.
no, but wait, it IS exciting. last monday i decided to get on the boat of healthy eating. i wanted to cut out the usual crap i eat when i’m stressed. so, for me, vegan is the way i went. the road i chose.
so i went grocery shopping & started my seven day journey on tuesday. i started with a mini goal. seven days. anyone can do anything for seven straight days, right?
a typical breakfast:
a smoothie with fruits & veggies.
grapefruit, orange, kale, banana, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, lemon, celery, cucumber & coconut water – – – these don’t all get mixed together – don’t worry.
so excited about my morning-commute smoothie . . . ps, it’s so heavy my fingers are turning white from gripping so hard. crazy.
a typical lunch:
a salad & soup & piece of bread
spinach, carrots, sundried tomatoes, walnuts, avocado, peach balsamic vinegar
tomato soup out of a can – fancy
bread – ezekiel brand (it’s all sorts of healthy – has to stay frozen, etc.)
a typical snack:
apple, larabar, almonds
a typical dinner:
carrots & cucumbers
ok ok ok i KNOW my dinners were lame. like seriously lame.
so here’s the deal. i went super simple during this first week. it was a major detox period & i just wanted to accomplish something. i didn’t get fancy with recipes & pinterest & all that.
did i succeed? well, it was easter weekend. i pushed through a ton of temptation, but when it came to easter dinner, i caved.
i hopped right back on the vegan train monday morning though . . . until lunch. there was mexican food involved & cheese & i really don’t wanna talk about it.
monday night dinner was a fail as well.
ok, so i ate vegan from tuesday – sunday. that’s 6 days!
how did i feel? the weekend sucked. i felt awful. my body was screaming with discomfort, but this is what happens when you shock the body with goodness. no warning. no pre-gaming. just threw myself right into the deep end.
so now what? well, my next goal is to do another 6 days. start tomorrow.
