Hi! Thanks for peeking in my food diary! I have been a gluttonous meat eater my whole life. 3 months ago I made the change to eliminate meat from my diet and It surprisingly was not difficult. I actually do not miss 🥓 or 🥩 which is what I thought would be the hardest giving up. I always tell people that I eat whatever I want to eat, I just choose to not eat meat...And boy was I eating & drinking everything! My family and I spent 2 weeks on vacation and this picture was taken during it, just last week. I feel that I look like a different person from who I have known myself to be: A healthy, disciplined person who accomplishes goals. But now I’m the tired mom, who eats scraps from her kids plates, drinks wine after they go to bed, and then sneaks in ice cream as my final meal (because that is something that does not require cooking or dirtying a dish). Then I’m tired and ragged the next day, and my jeans don’t fit. 😖This isn’t who I am.
I’m learning that My body is addicted to sugar and refined grains. I need that sweetness after a meal, and that piece of bread with a salad... once a merely a mild pizza-liker, I’m now a pizza-obsesser. My kids & I have pizza literally everyday—it’s what they ask for! I oftentimes feel tired after a meal and would require a nap, which just isn’t possible.
Currently, Im working out 3x a week: just light strength training 2x a week, and cardio 1-2x a week. Nothing crazy... I have been reading dr. Jason Fungs #theobesitycode and am now on day 2 of #intermittentfasting Diet (16:8) along with a low carb, no sugar, high fat (keto) diet. I’m hoping to learn a new way of enjoying food as a vegetarian, and not be so reliant on carbs & sugar to fill me up.
If you happen to read all that, thanks for reading and stopping by. 😀
GW: 130 👏
