Quick Health Update

November 16, 2010

Not much to report on the Vegan front. Food- still eating well, doing my best to stay the path, counting down the days until Jan 1 when it becomes official. Today ate vegetarian chilli, a grapefruit, and have a couple of apples for a snack later on.

So I thought I would write about my health.

Consistently, I have gone down in weight. Over the last 2 weeks, I have not necessarily been great (as in following the path). I have had steak, fast food, alcohol, junk food, etc. For one reason or another, things have gone off the path. And yet every Monday, I get on the scale, and the scale has been kind. Obviously, that can’t last, but it is a good feeling.

On the weekend, I decided to play Wii Fit, which I have not played since March. Anyway, I finally heard the happy music when you actually hit your goal! The funny thing is that I am within 10 lbs of my weight when I first went away to college – according to Wii Fit, I am still overweight! I guess when I am wasting away, the Wii will be happy???

My energy levels have been pretty good. I think my body was fighting off a cold over the last 2 weeks, as sleep was never enough. Unlike last month where 6 hours was good, this month so far, I am finding I need a lot more. But 8 hours is not the end of the world.

Also on the weekend, I did some serious yardwork. Had to close the garden. My home is a stacked condo – and my patio is on the rooftop, 4 floors up. Anyway, I needed to get rid of all the old pots, and dirt. So up and down I went, carrying bag after bag of organic materials, and pots. I must have done that trip about 20-30 times. On Monday, my body was stiff, but recovered quite nicely, and quickly. I will say the healthy eating had something to do with it.

What is going to be interesting is that Christmas is upcoming. With Christmas comes Christmas parties, baking, more Christmas parties, more baking, and just awesomeness when it comes to food. Also, I need to get back on the recipe front, and get some more food reviews up. More to come – stay tuned!
