So I went on a bender this week and ate a bunch of shit with dairy and eggs, my house was full of delicious stuff everywhere and at work everyday there was something delicious to put in my mouth..So a few days ago I got home from work exhausted and hungry and there it was a tres leche. All I could picture was the condense milk in my mouth.(condense milk was my biggest weakness and one of the reason why I resisted to go vegan for so long) So yes I ate a piece.
I went for a plant based diet 2 weeks before thanksgiving 2016 I told myself I was going to be vegan at the states and everytime I traveled I was going to eat like the locals..My first big trip came 3 months later. I ate and tried everything.At times I remember feeling a little off but nothing major but I went on with it .I felt I would be missing out if I didn't.I came back to the states and went back to my vegan ways ,then 2 months later the Peru trip came along I did the same but I got really sick and I remembered being so disgusted by certain foods, like my body couldn't handle it anymore.But they say third time's a charm so It took a third trip for me to decide I wasn't really missing out on anything.I consumed meat, eggs & dairy for 23 years so I went fully vegan.
Has it been a perfect journey?Hell noo!!At times it's been one of the biggest struggle of my life.But I don't believe in complaining.I believe in failure and learning from it .This past week I learned how my body started reacting right away I got bloated,skin started braking out & let's not talk about allergies and I hated the feeling of guilt because I let myself down...I love challenges and this 2018 I feel ready to try a Raw Vegan diet for a few weeks and see how it goes.My goal is to be real .I'm so tired of people posting only the positive and good in their life the world needs more realness..And I guess my biggest wish for Christmas is to connect with more people that feel the way I do..whatever you are going through in your life DM me I want to connect with people specially if you have tips for me on how to overcome obstacles and make this vegan journey a little bit easier.I'm so optimistic about the future
