Vegan Day 2

Well I must admit I've seen a difference in my sleeping habits in only 24 hours. It was much easier to sleep than normal. I also feel more energetic in one day. I had toast this morning with coffee. Lunch I had a wide variety of fruit, I over killed the fruit category. Tomorrow I'm planning on having a more filling meal combined with a beet salad, beans with rice, nuts and a lot more I just thought of.

For dinner last night I had a veggie wrap and fries! Yum!

Wish me luck!

Vegan Weeek

So today I embark on a much needed journey for a healthier week. Thanks to Lizette Reyes, I'm inspired to try to go vegan for just one week. Just thinking about it stresses me out. I first didn't realize the different types of vegans there are out there. A vegan that does no dairy, a select vegan that does only fish, a raw vegan that does uncooked meals and so forth.

I didn't realize I would annoy myself hearing myself whine about everything in my fridge that is not vegan friendly. It appears that not even the olive oil mayo in my fridge is vegan.

So this morning I tossed backed in forth what to eat for breakfast, so I figured I had artificial milk powder for my coffee, check, organic pound cake, not so check, until I realized it's made with eggs and butter too. :(

For lunch, fruit, pasta and oh yeah yogurt...put then I'm thinking, isn't pasta made with eggs and yogurt with milk. I can't seem to win either way. I'll have see what I can do to get past this hurdle but I'm determined to try to go vegan. :)

God is Good

It's amazing how God puts the right people in your path right when you need them. I feel that the resolution I prayed for a little over three years ago has just been an ongoing blessing for the last three years. I love that I'm able to connect with so many people and touch so many lives at the same time.

Staying Strong

I embarked on this new journey not knowing what to expect. Touching the lives of so many business owners but most importantly High School Students. I've come to realize even more now how much these kids look to be in an environment where they can be acknowledged for what they do.

I look at the remaining volleyball players on our Matrix League Team and am in awe of their dedication. These girls are college bound and will do whatever it takes to achieve their dreams.

I thought I was teaching them something but they have taught me to keep moving forward.
