It’s that time of year again, right? You vow to eat more veggies, less sugar. You commit to being healthier. That “D” word is thrown around like crazy. The intention ~admirable. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret. It isn’t a diet, it’s a lifestyle. That’s what the commercials, the ads and everyone won’t say! Honestly, there is no magic pill, diet, cleanse or what have you. I know, I was 33 lbs heavier 3.5 years ago than I am right now.
I don’t really like to share my raw images but I did a few weeks ago, if you follow me on Instagram. It some how added some validity to my journey, the food I blog about and recipes I create. Most followers of my IG account just assumed that I always looked this way. And how would anyone know, right? I felt overweight and unhappy. In hindsight, I ate too much sugar and food. One interesting note: I trained then the same as I do today. Make sure you actually read that – my training hasn’t changed from 33 lbs ago however my running has gotten faster due to the weight loss. I hit a point that I was sick and tired of feeling that way so I decided to start on my journey to change. I went from hardcore carnivore to the person sitting here typing this blog post today – a plant-based vegan. I realize extreme to some but this has been an ongoing metamorphosis over 3.5 years. I happily celebrate my vegan 1 year anniversary this month and have never felt better in my life.
