My journey going 100% vegan for 6 months. November 1, 2009 - May 1, 2010 (And my new life now)
Friday, March 26, 2010
Yesterday had good intentions, but I didn't work out at lunch, and instead went back to Haru. Now, Haru is a very good Japanese restaurant, and I enjoy sitting at the sushi bar reading the Post and eating a double order of edamame beans, miso, large salad, and a spinach and sesame dish. I know there is way too much salt in that lunch, and too much ginger dressing on the salad. Once a week is fine, but not three times per week!
The afternoon sugar crave came in like a wave - again, never being a sweet tooth in the past this is an odd sensation. But the total crumbling of will power this time? Peanuts....toffee peanuts! Ugh! What the heck is wrong with me! I can see the finish line! I have 25 lbs to go! Just stick with the playbook and all will be well!
I'm getting lax -- I did that before after I lost about 35 lbs, and leveled off for a couple of weeks. Not that I could not lose weight consistently, rather, I stayed vegan, ate relatively healthy and leveled off - at the time I was eating way too many simple carbs. I got back on track and started losing again, 40, 50 lbs. Now I feel I am stalling again because I am deviating from the playbook too often!
I have 35 days to go! It is the remaining minutes of the fourth quarter of the game - focus, discipline, and make it happen!
It might be impossible to crest at the total weight of 225 lbs by May 1st, but, I am going to get as close as I can, and after May 1 I will continue UNTIL I hit my goal!
