Happy Vegan MoFo 2014!

Whoa, my last post was in June? Sorry about that, everyone! About a month and a half ago, I moved from NC (where I was miserable, because I am a New Englander and I do not belong in the south) to way the heck upstate NY. It's way better here. The people are nicer, the weather is better, and even though we're in pretty much the middle of nowhere, there are some decent food options! 


Yeah yeah, until winter and the lake effect snow. I know, I get it.

So when my husband came home from Afghanistan (uhh...2 years ago?) I was 10 pounds over my goal weight.

As of yesterday, I was 26 over.


So what happened? I stopped working out consistently. I started eating gluten sometimes. (As a reminder, I'm not allergic, it just doesn't really like me. Aside from issues I won't mention, I bloat and get this weird rash on my right knee, left foot and elbow, and my hands.) Not cool, self.

So. I've been writing (YA novels), and I'm sitting more. Right at this moment (August 31st, I'm writing this ahead of time so I won't miss the first day!) I've got some things in the works. Think happy thoughts, won't you?

School starts for the kiddo on September 3rd, so I'm going to start working out again. I've got P90X3 (and P90X) and I miss Tony, so I'll start hanging out with him again.

Until then, I'm eating better. My only consumed gluten is ezekiel bread—no more than a slice a day. Oh, and if we go to Syracuse, I'll be eating some Strong Hearts, cause that place is amazing. 

So that's it. My MoFo plan. Eat food that likes me back. Today, good things I ate include: kale/pineapple/banana smoothie, soy yogurt and I forget what else because I'm doing writing things and spacing.

I hear ya. I love bread and I'm jut not being moderate anymore so this month I'm going to really take a look. It will help me make more veggie choices instead of the easy bagel.

Great plan for MoFo! Best of luck with everything! :)

I have to cut down (not out, just down!) on gluten and am always looking for more ideas. Can't wait to see what you share!

Enjoy the new digs and the lower humidity.

Peace :)
