I am happy to announce that I am experimenting with vegetarianism. Honestly, this was not my idea! The things we do for our friends….he he! Heck, if it gives me more energy or makes me feel better, why not. The only way to know what works for our bodies is to experiment. LET’S DO THIS!
Ok, I’m not going to lie, this first week I will probably eat eggs… yes, I know what you all may be thinking, but hear me out! According to Jolinda Hacket on The Spruce, vegetarians can and do eat eggs. However, the technical term for it is called, “Ovo- Vegetarian”. So, that will be me for the next two weeks. PLEASE do NOT leave me messages to debate what you think or how you feel about what a “true” vegetarian is. I don’t care. LOL!
I am just doing this to support my friend and to see what my body does. Since I have started Mermaidsthatlift.com, I have dropped back to my normal weight. I went from 110 to 115 all the way up to 140! O M G. I’m pretty short soooooo that’s a big deal for me, personally. I am not talking about anyone but me here, so please do not get offended. I am not really sure what I weigh now because I refuse to weigh myself. However, my size 2’s fit and my size 4’s are big! WIN. Even more of a WIN that I did everything COMPLETELY HEALTHY. I ate… ate a lot of calorie nutrient foods and kept active. I actually don’t even lift weights like I used to. I lift probably 2 to 3 times a week and the rest is hiking, walking, swimming, errands, cleaning, or whatever will keep me doing. What I gained is being more comfortable in my own skin, and I didn’t completely degrade myself like I used to or turn to old habits that were destructive. I kept telling myself that I am beautiful and that I will be healthy. Daily affirmations guys… DO IT EVERY DAY. I still may not feel beautiful or think I look the best all the time, but that’s normal. I just keep going and if I am negative one day, I try to be more positive the next. Life is about choices. So, make the choice that is best for you.
Any who, about this ovo-vegetarianism… it’s day one. I am hungry everything couple of hours grrr… but when I eat my veggies and my fruits, I get full quicker. Then my hanger subsides. Day one is OK so far. I will continue with updates on this two-week journey.
