It is so nice to be on holidays – even if it is only for 11 days….but I’m gonna make sure it was well worth it..
I intend to do a lot of tidying up in the garden and house + continuing with my study AND making sure I am exercising and eating right..
I will be doing videos soon for my fitness journey (FAB@55) if anyone is interested….this way it will keep me on track by making me responsible for getting fitter and healthier – because everyone is watching…LOL!!
I will be vlogging my journey – all the good bits and bad bits…so beware!! You might see a side of me you have not seen before + a lot of it will be me with no makeup on (Hahahaha…..I think this is the disclaimer bit…LOL).
We are getting a new piece of equipment for the gym which will help all of us (Paul, Caetlyn & myself) with our particular gym needs – I will take a photo of that once we have it all set up (hopefully next week).
I weighed and measured myself this morning (OMG – no wonder my back aches!!) + took before pictures (and NO – I am not showing those until progress has been made), and am ready to start a journey to a better me.
In 2015 I made a lot of progress, I haven’t been ill as much this year as previous years (says she who has had a head cold for the last 2 weeks), and even when I get ill my recovery rate is a lot better (I’m usually sick for 3-4 months of the year). I only get side pains now when I eat the wrong foods (too much oily foods), or eat too much bread/past/rice.
I have been vegan/vegetarian (Plant based) officially since March 2015 – mostly vegan – and I am hoping to be totally vegan in 2016 (no more icecream..LOL).
Why VEGAN? Because I feel my best when I am eating a plant based diet – I have more energy – therefore more likely to exercise and do more with my life, I can control my weight, my brain thinks better – my thoughts are clearer, I am nicer to be around – more chirpier and I sing a lot, I am more bouncy and I have no back pain, thing do not seem so insurmountable and my coping skills are heaps better.
When not on this lifestyle I am lethargic, in pain, miserable, I can’t cope with life, I’m grumpy and snappy at everyone (especially family), I can’t study because I am always tired – go to bed tired and wake up tired, and generally hate myself – I feel old, passed it and decrepit.
Mind you I hate calling myself a vegan – I prefer the term “Plant Based” as a lot of vegans are total TWAT-Heads (especially the activist types)….I can’t stand their attitudes (intolerance) towards people who are not vegan, and I do not want to be associated with them.
So if you would like to see my progress, or join me in 2016 to get fitter and healthier, then by all means let me know and we will work on it together.
So here is to a fantastically fit future for 2016…
