Yep. You got it! For me, Christmas. And whatever you may celebrate. I have been watching christmas movies. As well as listening to christmas music :) And enjoying our decor every night. We have a tiny tree, but it makes me happy. I took a few photos of my decor to show you. : )
Anywho- I made dinner last night and wanted to share with you. I know I've shared this before along with my other 'mexican' version of it. But I mix it up every time I make it again. This time adding zucchini. Just trying out different veggies to add in. So I made cauliflower rice. Very simple. Then added in different veggies and bragg's amino acids and garlic powder. As my tofu was baking. And top it with green onion of course! So good.
-Pulse cauliflower in food processor
-Put pulsed 'rice' cauliflower in bigger sauté pan.
-Add in veggies, while it is cooking. I added zucchini, mushrooms and bell pepper.
-Sprinkle garlic powder, or minced garlic.
-I poured 1 tsp-2 tsp of braggs amino acids or low sodium soy sauce.
-Let cook until zucchini/mushrooms are cooked.
-Stir around while cooking it.
And voila !
Added Baked tofu to the top. & green onion.
Cooking it all together!
Can't forget this! ;)
Dinner is served!
Now for my christmas decor I know you want to see so badly ;)
Christmas glasses :)
Our light display & tree
So today is F-R-I-D-A-Y ya'll! A few of my favorite things right now are.....
-Listening to Christmas music. (I made an awesome playlist on Spotify)
-Warm food! Especially SWEET POTATOES! Yum.
-Walking (for exercise) outside in the cold! Yeah, I like it ;)
-Cold weather in general! I get to wear jackets & scarves and keep them on!
and for my favorite. I finally finished my unfinished paintings from the beginning of this year. And yes, they are all for sale on Etsy. but besides that. I'm so obsessed with making 'Treasuries". I love it! Check mine out! I've made about 5 now. All different themes. Mostly christmas inspired. I love doing it . It's really fun.
Are you on Etsy? I hope you'll "Favorite" my shop! etsy.com/shop/jkartworkstudio
So I bought a *groupon* earlier this year. Finallllllly used it! It was seriously a great deal. 2 wine tastings, 2 glasses, and a bottle of wine. All for like $25, I believe. Great deal. Totally worth it also. We had such a great time. The only down fall to this place is that it won't allow you to bring your own outside food. I will give Malibu Wines, props for at least allowing that. So funny- last time we went to a wine tasting in malibu, at Malibu Wines. It was about 80 degrees. Our picnic of cheeses were nicely melted (in a good way- I like my brie slightly warm, lol). And then yesterday Yowza. Freeyo! It was about 50 degrees outside for our outdoor wine tasting adventure. But they had some heaters, which helped. Sort of. My legs were kinda numb I realized after walking back to the car. Haha. It seriously was so nice to get away from "LA" for a day. I know regardless- it's still "Malibu". But we were pleasantly surprised with the conversations we had with a slightly tipsy 'regular', who was alone at the bar. And can't forget the extremely outspoken bartender. Ay ya ya. But none the less. It was a funny/ nice experience. It turned out that the bartender had my same exact birthday- so our first taste was of sparkling champagne, for free :)
I always like to see if people with the same birthdays are in anyway the same. That girl- in no way. Is like me. Lol. Do you ever do that? I always look on Facebook at the birthdays that day- and compare people to see if they are at all similar. But never really match up. Everyone is their own person : ) Here are a few pics. If your ever in LA, you should go to this spot. It's called Malibu & Vine. Or like I said- want to bring a picnic- go to Malibu Vines :)
Why hello there!
Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all of you!
Very sad I didn't get a photo of my casserole I made yesterday... Grr! What was I thinking!
Oh well. I still have the satisfaction of everyone saying how good it was. My sister and brother included! The cheeze I made was quite spicy too! Score ;) I loved it. But then again, I love black beans & rice. Also a complete protein! I needed to make something I could have with protein since I don't eat turkey- or meat. Or anything of that nature anymore.
Once my family left last night we put up our christmas decor. Love doing that. Although I had a little too much vino :/ Not feeling so awesome and energetic as usual today. I really didn't splurge out on dinner or dessert. Just cause, I'm kinda picky when it comes to dessert, and the food. Well their was only like 3 things I could have. But it was veryyyy good. I never really 'stuff' myself like others do. But regardless- eat things I don't usually eat. Wasn't a balanced meal. Lets just say that. Haha.
But today was back on track time for me. Goals are in sight. Making sure to achieve my last goal of the year. Since I did complete my list I created at the beginning of this year. I want to start 2014 out with a bang. With a jump start. We all have our own goals in mind, it could be anything. This year, my goodness. I've learned so entirely much. And the greatest of them all- that I'm reminded of constantly, every year. Is that there is only now. So there is no need in being mad at your loved ones. I love my family & friends so much. And I try to tell them as much as I can. I have forgotten to enjoy my life a little this year. I got consumed in focusing only on acting. And I lost the things I'm most interested in. Creating vegan recipes, and painting. But I like I always am trying to do- is maintain balance with all of these things. So that I can be happy.
I took a walk in the morning yesterday. Felt really great to stay active on Thanksgiving. I took a walk/run today. Which is when I took that picture of the beautiful sky. <3 Feels good to be active and eat right. Why would I want to sabotage myself from having that feeling all the time? : )
I would love if all of you who read this, share your goals with me on here. And lets all strive to achieve them by Jan 1st. Whose in?
So this is something new I've decided to try out. "Favorite Fridays" is going to be the time I share with you all my favorites! Lets see how ya like it! Please leave comments below if you have any favorites you'd like to share! :)
First of all I have to start with the above picture. It is my Favorite road to walk on. Especially when it's 'fall'. It's so pretty :) I love that pic too :) * Cashew Cheeze
. I seriously LOVE this stuff. When I first became vegan for that one month in 2012, I discovered this. And it made everything better- and easier. It's just cashews! Yes I know there is fat in there- my response- I DON'T care. I'm not a stickler when it comes to fat. I could care less. I love my healthy fats. Yes you, Avocado <3 : )
* Burning Candles. <3 And yes I know I already said this- but Fall. <3
Eat Pray Love
Seriously my favorite book & movie. If you don't want to read- which honestly, I usually don't - I know, I know. Thats awful to say. But seriously- the movie is just as good to me! I re watch it ALL the time. Probably will today! haha. It's amazing.
One of my favorite picture apps on my iphone is PicFx. It has so many awesome features. This is my favorite- I call it light bubbles. Pretty sure thats not the correct name. But oh well.
Oh and if you read what I posted yesterday- or missed it. My favorite NEW app is DUOLINGO. It's an amazing free language learning app. So glad I randomly found it somehow. <3
And to finish off my Favorite fridays- so I can save some for all the other fridays - is MY MAN, Oh & this Hollywood Sign Hike. :) But yes. He's my favorite <3
Alright ya'll! there ya have it ! Until next friday :)
Hello ! Happy October! :) Yeah, I know - I can't believe I'm writing you either. Been a while, huh? It's becoming a habit of mine to start each blog post with that- and I'm sorry for that. I must give you this excuse- hear me out ;) Of course you already know I am an actress. Please check out my website
/like my FB page
if you'd like :) Anywho- once you go there. You'll see all i've been up to and possibly realize why I haven't been a good Blog writer to you in the past few months. I'll hope you'll forgive me.
I know were already 3 days in to October. Hold on tight! I do NOT want this month to go fast :( It's seriously my favorite month. That and the beginning of November. Weather is a bit different than I remember 'october' being like. but I know it'll change as the month progresses. I still have no idea what I'll be for Halloween. I was thinking Jessica Rabbit. Opinions? :)
Then again at the moment we don't even know what we'll be doing. I love dressing up. It's the funnest thing to me. Thats why I have always loved October. Not to mention just all the fall things. I'm not as obsessed with pumpkin as I've seen others been lately :/ That nasty pumpkin spice latte stuff they sell at Starbucks is a little to high on demand if ya ask me! It's not healthy. I avoid sugar when I can. Especially that type. But I will think of some sort of pumpkin recipe for ya ;)
Sooo ya wanna detox, eh? I have a new detox for you. If your interested. More than likely- it's NOT what your thinking. So don't be disspointed with me. I find that this will do more good than any of those green juice detox's would anyway! This detox is the same as any in the way that, it stays true to the definition.
detoxification: the process of removing toxic substances or qualities
I have been noticing that my thoughts have been toxic. The routine/lifestyle I have been living probably since the beginning of this year- have completely gone a 360. Mainly my thoughts toward that routine. Which is the start of everything. I'm sure you all understand what I mean- I know sometimes we change- in ways we don't like, and maybe we don't even understand it. But we are in control. And if you don't like something- change it. Is more than true. We can do a 360 right back to the good route we were headed on. I used to actually want to go walking everyday outside, in the park. Once I made it a thing I had to do- or had to do so many miles, etc. Then it became not fun. And it took the experience of it out. And now I end up just not walking. Which makes me sad cause I loved it. I used to love to cook. But when I focus on calorie intake- or am busy, etc. I end up just buying take out, or food from work cause it's easy. Now that is super sad for me! When I first started this- Jan 1st of 2012, When I decided to become vegan for a month. It honestly was so ridiculously fun. I got to be sooooo creative in the kitchen. Everything I made I took pictures of and posted it- not caring how many likes it had. I realize that I used to paint so much, but once I realized I could paint and make money off of it. It changes. That beautiful hobby, thrill you get by doing something special to you - some how goes away when you change the perspective of it all. By seeing the profit. I used to just do things for me. Just cause. Not for any profit. Not to lose weight, not to please others- not to get paid. Strait up for me. Where did that go? Well with this detoxification of my thoughts. I will slowly find the way back to me. And it's going to take a while. To keep telling myself to shhhh. And just get up daily to walk- to feel the breeze, smell fresh air, etc.
I understand life gets different when you grow older. But it doesn't have to be for the bad. I see kids playing sometimes, aimlessly, laughing, running around Then you look at the parents... sitting there, miserable on their phones. I d o n' t w a n t t h i s to be M E. Or you for that matter. We can have fun too. We can be that giddy kid. But we have to follow our passions that lead us to that feeling.
I hope that you'll go on this detox with me. From now -til whenever you find yourself. I love you all. <3 wish you the best. <3 Happy October!
I have not had a chance to stop and even think the past 2 days. It's crazy for me sometimes, and I know it is for you. But the importance of taking care of yourself and resting- still remains a top priority. Even when you don't put it there. And man oh man, have I not been putting it there. But hey, I am right now. Thats what matters. As you all know- I'm in the entertainment business- and updating photos- is something I have to do often. :p I had lots of photo shoots this past week. And it's great. But it's also exhausting. Because I know for myself, I am a huge critic. I like things to be perfect- when it comes to art- including in photos. But when you see your self in images- all different angles, every which way. You get a little sick of yourself. And for me. I get down. I look at all the things I call 'wrong' with me, by agency standards. Which isn't good. I know. This is a very hard business, I know this. I've been modeling since I was 11. I have a pretty strong back bone. I know the things people say to you about your natural born look can be hurtful. And I've experienced it all- and I'm sure there is much more to come. But the critic I am to myself is probably the worst of all.
Becoming a woman and owning it. Is very hard. Especially for me and my body type. I'm considered a healthy shape. But a tad overweight for modeling standards and just 'normal' size- which isn't a good thing- weirdly enough. I've been told I could become a very successful model- if I were to lose 20 pounds. Like I said- this business, aye ya ya. Got to have a back bone for the words they throw at you. When I first moved here from Georgia- I never even looked at myself in a negative way. I completely changed after living here and being around girls who were so concerned with what they ate. It was awful to be around. A few years ago- the way I ate was terrible. I knew what healthy food was- and I would over eat intentionally- only to start a new 'diet' the next day. I'm definitely over that phase of my life. I now understand what the point is of eating healthy and treating your body right and excercising. Has nothing to do with outer image.
I think if people focused more on this- then weight would come off easily and it wouldn't be so stressful- if you just focused on the fact you want to be healthy. To live longer. and feel better. All the other benefits will happen because of that. I know it's easier said than done- believe me.
Anyway- after having been 'busy' lately. I have felt rushed and anxious more than ever. And accidentally skipping meals- by being on a shoot for 5 hours. It's been very bad. skipping meals for me makes me go crazy! I eat 5 x in a day- and try not to go over 3-4 hours in between. But that has not been whats been happening :( So if this is going to be the way my life is. I have to play along- and figure out a plan. Cause I've had zero time for working out as well. This can't be the way it is! Balance is such a huge thing! And I've lost it.
I'm embarking on a new journey. And the plateau I've been on for a very long time- is going to be broken. I've remained the same- same habits for about 2 years now- and I'm not happy with staying the same- were supposed to evolve and get better- feel better. Learn. Grow. I want to do this. And I can. And so can you. So create an action plan for yourself. Put your goals at the top- and then write the ways of what you have to do to get there. and thennnnnn do them :) Slow and steady. no rush!
A couple of mine are:
-Run/walk 2 miles every morning.
-Get up in the morning! (yeah this will be a hard one for me)
Well my oh my. It has been quite a while since we last spoke. What can I say, life happens. And that it did. And always does ;) Sometimes my balancing system gets a little thrown off. Um, I think I speak for everyone on that one! Regardless. I'm back from hiatus and will try my hardest to keep The Daily Kale as updated as possbile. My fellow readers know I am a working actress. So balancing life with the added awesomeness of running a website can be tricky. But I love the challenge. Anywho. Since we last spoke I booked a gig- have had several auditions... and working a lot at my regular ole job. And from all of that- sadly I got quite uninspired to be creatively healthy. :( I'm typically- always healthy, but the way I aim to eat- hadn't been happening.
But I'm happy to say I am back! With some changes also.
I finally had a bit of time off last week- and got to make food, (yay!) and also do research on food! (Yay again!) So being the sometimes vegetarian/vegan I am. I decided to once again to drop dairy/fish & eggs -for a little while. Vegan if you will. but even more than that. Sometimes- we think back, look at an old picture, and see a person that we used to be- and remember we were happy then. And what the hell happened from then til now? We are ever evolving. Don't blame yourself or get mad... it happens to the best of us. Including myself. We just get a little lost and start going down not the wrong path necessarily- but a bumpier one. When all this time you could've taken a short cut. Oh well! It is what it is. And I have finally had enough realizations- to understand that that person in the picture is still me. At that time in the photo I'm referring to. I remember it as happy- only cause I felt so great then. I remember my diet then too. It was actually when I just started the new year with a challenge from engine 2 diet. By going plant based vegan for 1 month- I ended up doing it for like 5, and felt so good! So what happened from then? I have NO idea. I went back to eating fish and cheese. None of which make ME feel good. When I say this I want to emphasize, me. Cause I don't care what you eat. I don't know if you eat meat or whatever, but I honestly don't care- I'm not a vegan preacher by any means telling you to not. If you want to research it yourself then do so. I don't like being criticized for eating the way I do- so I have respect for both and won't do anything in return. Engine 2 is just a great way of eating and I really admire it. It's not so simple I guess- for me it is, but possibly for others I could see it being challenging. But I really love it so it's very easy to me.
Anywho. So yes- I've gone back to my engine 2/forks over knives ways of eating. And it's like day 5 and I'm already really feeling good! Love starting September this way. I have 5 months until my big birthday ! And I want to be super fit and healthy and feeling good. My goal is with every year I get older- to feel better, be more active than the last year. And believe me- that will be easy! I used to do absolutely nothing when I was in high school but eat and drink soda. So I have lots of cleansing still to do from all those times :) It's nuts to me. To look at myself right now with how I eat and how open minded I've became around food. and all the possibilities. I truly urge to research all things related with fruits and veggies and all the things it can do for you. Like cure diabetes, certain diseases. It's all about diet!. it really is. Cut sugar out completely. And limit wheat products. Oh oh. The biggest news I have to share is the fact I have completely dropped soy from my diet except for the highest quality form of it, Tempeh- which I'm allowing myself to have 1x a week. I also urge to research that! Seriously. I didn't want to believe it only cause , as a vegetarian/vegan- what am I gonna eat? Ahhh. no worries. My options are endless too. So it's beans & lentils for me. Now anyway! I'm off to enjoy the labor day weekend at work ;) I just went for a 1 hour walk and got a little toasty accidentally :/ I wore sunscreen! I dunno what happen :o Ya'll have a great weekend! Be careful! & take care of yourself! Heres a recipe on how to make a colorful lunch :)
& always remember to eat breakfast folks! <3
So basically- what veggies do you have in your kitchen?? The components of making a beautiful colorful lunch or dinner is as simple as this. No wasting veggies! I swear- once you put it together- it'll make sense, and taste good!
+ Protein (Lentils or Beans)
+Veggies (lots of them)
+ Complex Carb /Starchy Veg. (ie. Quinoa or Sweet Potato)
+ Sauce (ie. Cashew cheeze
, or salsa)
I'm obsessssssssed with red cabbage right now and add it to everything. It's sooooo good. Just amazing seriously. When I have herbs in my fridge like basil or cilantro, green onions, etc. I chop them up and top it on it as well! :) I've had different variations of this all week- with whatever I have available in the fridge. Very VERY good. Enjoy your colorful lunch or dinner!
Hello There. Happy Sunday to ya!
I bring you the newest diet there is on the market. Yes indeed. And it's all the rage. ;)
I'd like to talk about today - the fact, that certain things... begin to consume us. We over obsess about particular things- then that becomes what defines us. I assure you this has happened to me on more than one occasion. I tend to put all my focus and energy on one thing, and do that full force. But usually it's not an easy goal- whatever it maybe involving, music, workout, acting, painting, diet, etc.. I also tend to over do things. Basically not obtainable (at all). Which always leads me back to point A. And then I feel stuck- and then I repeat that same system over again. My advice- for myself, and for you.... Is to think back to when you were happy- For me it's a certain vacation. So when you think about that time. Think long and hard about how you were feeling and why? What were you doing? What was your job at the time? What did you do for fun, who were your friends. Etc! You may have been following your passion at that time, and where you are now- is not going in that direction. No worries though- there is a way to fix this.
The reason I chose the time in which I was on a particular vacation. Was because, I felt free. And sure- everyone loves a great time away-on the beach with drinks. It wasn't just that for me.
I quit a job- that I had felt trapped in- that was holding me back from being able to pursue my dream of acting. Which was awful. Going to work there daily was torture to me. I hated life then. I quit/ went on this vacation. Saw EXTREMELy beautiful nature. Now, you don't even need to be in Mexico, to just go outside and take a walk with nature.
Whats your favorite time of day? - Make sure you go outside then, or even if you can't look out the window and admire it. Breathe it in. I love nature. My favorite time is right after the sun sets. And the sky is pinkish/white-ish/light blue. In Georgia, thats the time that lightning bugs come out. That memory of that- is why I love that time so much. It's also the time I usually go into work. But I make sure to walk by/look out the window, to see it. It's so pretty and peaceful to me. But you best believe- when I'm off work, I'm outside then!
I also just enjoyed each moment on that vacation. Every moment. On a regular day for me, Auditions/Work. I don't know if I can say the same for that. But I need to. Even when I'm stuck in traffic. Waiting in an audition room- or waiting for someone to say what they want to eat for dinner- so I can go ahead and put the order in. Ahhhh, Breathe. Just breathe. And remember in those moments. I'm alive. How awesome is that. It's not even awesome- it's amazing. And it's truly a blessing. <3 All of us are.
Now.... on to this not a diet deal.
One of the many things I tend to over due- is my thoughts on things. I will plan things- write things down in the most neatest cleanest order you'll ever see. For some reason, I love doing that. I love organizing things so that their all perfectly strait and aligned. It bothers me sometimes- cause I don't necessary want to be this way- But I could definitely try and put that effort towards something else! Ie.= cleaning the house. Ha! I'm sure my boyfriend would very much appreciate this.
And believe me- I'm going to put forth the effort and try this! I will I will.
I'm a healthy person. I'm sure you are as well. But my mind is a bit off when it comes to the way I think about diet. I actually started wondering the other day- Do I even know what a 'normal' way of eating for me is? Without all these rules/times to eat, blah blah. Etc. I noticed one time, just cause I had wrote down a particular time to eat a bar- when I started to open it, I wasn't even hungry. Thats when I began to really think this through. I've taught myself health. Yes, and working out- is a totally different story -I still have a lot to learn there. But I almost tried to tell myself the other day- That I don't even know what healthy is. Border line crazy moment there. Health is one of things I'm so passionate about- I mean truly- I get so irritated with people some times I could get an argument. But I must remember that I can only share my knowledge/truth- and hope they'll learn from it. I understand people want to be skinny/fit, that's fine. And the way people go about it- that I don't agree with, is fine as well. But sorry, it's not for me. I am all about health. NOT diet. Meaning how much nutrients, etc, are in your food- as opposed to protein/carbs.
I've never been more healthily happy- since discovering veganism. I haven't been sick- since maybe last year sometime- even then, that was just an ear infection. Not being able to recall when, feels empowering. Because I know- that it's because of my diet choices. I have recently gave up cheese altogether. For now anyway. It doesn't serve me in any health way- I get all the calcium I need from the amount of veggies I eat- I can't even tell you the amount of spinach and kale I eat in a day. One smoothie would be enough, but I always add it to my lunch/dinner as well. :)
I mean, try it- Maybe you'd feel better to? Who knows. More and more information is coming out all the time about how you should avoid dairy. Look it up for yourself. Researching on your own- and making sure it's from a reliable source, is very good- I urge you to try it!
-So for the non diet. Eat when your hungry. Drink lots of water. Have breakfast. Know your portions. Try to add as many nutrients as you can to every meal! Always have at least 1 dark leafy green in a day. Have a treat ( a healthy one) everyday. Eat 3 meals, and have a snack in between- if your hungry. Don't say you can't have anything! Have whatever you'd like as an option- (No, I do not mean fast food- sorry, but thats never an option in my book.) (Might I mention- a 'treat' for me would be a glass of red wine and or 70 percent or higher dark chocolate. And not depriving myself of 100% whole wheat bread.)
Now for working out- Walk, or do any activity at least 3 x a week. Aim for 5, if you can. Just make sure to get your butt moving!
Alright. So if anyone wants to go on this non diet with me, please do! ;) And yessss- this to is not a temporary 'diet'. It's a lifestyle.
Have a great day! Do something that makes you happy! I've been practicing how to play a song on piano this morning
My title comes from a lot of things. I have had the BEST trip home. Seriously. For those of you who don't know me well- 'Back home'= Georgia. Home now= L.a., yes I'm an actress)
Anywho- how many of you have seen the film, Now & Then? I love it. One of the greatest chic flics everrrrrr. ;) It's really great. Ok back on track- My trip back home was amazing. Spent lots of times with my mom and sister. As well as having the experience of them getting to know the love of my life, my boyfriend- better. I saw family members and old friends I haven;t seen in years. It truly was so amazing, and I'm so grateful I had that opportunity. One small thing was I didn't follow a healthy lifestyle all too much. Which is the practice I preach, I know I know. Hey it's Ga! I'm only there every so often. And besides, it's good sometimes to eat really crappy food- and then realize you feel like poop. Then get a running start towards a health plan. Which is exactly what I've begun since I got home on Sunday night. Believe ME! I want nothing to do with alcohol/crappy food. For a w h i l e. :) So ya see- turns out it's a good thing sometimes, to indulge. ;)
Although I don't promote it often.
I got in touch with who I really am. Although I'm still always searching for who that is- and evolving. Change is a beautiful thing. And I am open to it. I always know- that there is something greater out there for me, and for everyone. You can't settle. Ya just can't. Cause believe me- there is something bigger out there for you then you think you know. You just have to want to go find it.
And in that case- I am on the hunt- constantly.
So besides traveling lots of parts of Ga. and being around genuinely nice people who care about me and love me. And the fried dill pickles ;) Breathing in clean air and being surrounded by Ga.'s nature was beautiful. So thankful for all the experiences I had. That being said- I am happy to be back. I am more rejuvenated than ever. I had my first audition yesterday after being gone. And I said to myself. Krysten- you have got to book this gig. What do I need to do right now- to make this happen. I focused on that and I would say that it was one of the best auditions I've ever had. It takes me back to this moment the other night, when we saw Superman. Clark says a line that struck me. It got me inspired. Got me motivated and resonated so much with me. And he's not even talking about it in a human/normal way where it could be interpreted really. Or who knows- maybe the writer did have that as an underlining meaning. Oh I don't know but either way! This is how I took it. He says- He was taught to only focus on what is right in front of him. Because living on earth, he'd see everything, he would be scared when he was younger cause he could see through people, to their skeleton bones. But his parents told him to focus on one thing, right in front of him- so he wouldn't get distracted. UM hello. Wake up call for me.
in the audition. I focused on just that. I got all my thoughts together, focused on the matter at hand. And I did it. Besides my nerves taking their normal place in the front of the line (grrr) I did great! Which is so exciting for me. Seriously. Not trying to brag or anything- it's ok to be proud of yourself, and say so! Who cares what others think. No one knows how hard things are for me sometimes. The smallest of things. I am always thinking of what everyone else is thinking. Which has held me back for so long. Not anymore. I'm putting my best foot forward in the body I have at this moment. Cause it's all I've got. Yes I wish for different things in the future. And I'm living a life right now that will take me there. But for now. I've gotta be the best me I can be.
Now on to the next topic. My diet. I'd like to share it with you all cause I'm pretty excited about it- and my results to come. I've started the diet plan portion tuesday- and the workout program will begin Monday for me. No regrets. I wanted to take time off to adjust to my diet first and focus on that- then Monday start full swing with the intense workouts :/ I really love the plan I've chosen and happy to know it will be a lifestyle and not just a 1 week or 8 week fling. I usually go up and down, etc. But I'm set on this. If your interested in the plan, let me know. I didn't purchase the plan, cause it's a bit too pricey for me. But I do understand it and doing it in my own vegan way. Yes I started the Vegan thing on Tuesday! All of you who are interested are starting Monday right?!
All it is - is a pledge to try veganism for a month. I'll be posting weekly vegan recipes to help as well. Plus you can ask me anything about meals, and I'll be glad to help.
Well. Thats about it for now from me. I wish you all a great day.
