I went back home for a week and totally got back into my old bad habits (eating not vegan things, binging, eating at night, sleeping during the day) and I feel so bloated and disgusting!
My weight has ballooned back to 82 kg, so it’s time to do something about it!
My dad is the biggest inspiration, he recently ran a marathon and he’s so fit and encouraging…he gave me a whole lot of running stuff (technical t shirts and shorts and a good pair of running shoes) and I don’t want to disappoint him anymore being lazy.
I have to go running at least a couple of times per week, even if I have to go on my own (I used to go with a friend, but it’s hard to find a convenient time for both of us).
My adorable boyfriend gave me a little mp3 player for my birthday to keep me from getting bored and discouraged if I have to run on my own, so I really don’t have any excuse anymore.
Yesterday went well! It definitely helped that 99.9% of my day was consume with a scientific paper on poikilotherm and homeothermic respiration…. But it went well! Today I feel good! I am having trouble coming up with veggie juice recipes that don’t make me gag… I love tomatoes but tomato juice makes me sick!! What the hell!!
Try mixing green vegetables with fruit, it really helps.
A favourite of mine is made with spinach, raspberries and lime.
Spinach and especially cucumber are pretty tasteless when mixed with fruit and they create lovely juices ( you should try green grapes, cucumber, lime, plums and melon, it tastes like sweet lemonade and it’s so good when you’re thirsty!)
