Going Vegan: Week Two

I Can’t Believe How Different This Feels

The weight continues to fall off. This week I lost 3 pounds, although it wasn’t as much as last week I’m still happy about it. Going vegan has forced me to incorporate ALOT more vegetables, fruits, beans and grains into my daily diet. I’m having to the read the nutritional facts and ingredients on everything I eat.

Two weeks ago I’d be drinking 2 sodas a day and now I only allow myself two per week. I’ve been testing out Kombucha and this one up here is still my favorite.

Fitness Time

This past weekend I learned another move… The Uppercut. I was worn out after 1 round. In addition to the gym on the weekends I also walked a total of 6 miles at the park. My goal is to be able to run 12 miles per week again.

More Than Halfway There

Somehow I survived a family BBQ this weekend. The smell of carne asada floated all around me but I made it through without eating it.

I’m looking forward to the end of my vegan diet only because I miss cheese so much. There’s a really good pizza place downtown that my boyfriend and I will be paying a visit to real soon.

This week I plan on drinking more water, and jogging 1 of the 6 miles.
