Going vegan and other stories.

So, this afternoon, I made the decision that I’m going to go vegan.

I have made that assertion in the past, anyone who knows me well knows that it’s something that I have been trying to do for years now, but I always seem to fail. I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching and research over the last few weeks (and it has consumed most of my online time – hence why no blog posts), and I have discovered several YouTubers and websites that have helped me out exponentially.

I make excuses. I have been making excuses for years. I don’t want to do that anymore. One of the things that I watched this weekend was “Earthlings.” That was really enough to cement my decision on its own, even without the other factors.

I have my weigh-in tomorrow for my Ideal Protein and I’m going to talk to my coach. The vegan lifestyle is not compatible with the diet protocol, so it will be more of a “thank you and goodbye” session with my coach. Plus, it’s just not financially feasible for me to do anymore.

I feel nervous, but I feel strong. I’m going to be utilizing this blog more to document my vegan journey. Might make some videos, post recipes and all of that stuff. We’ll see how it goes.

Puddle jumping!

With all of the rain that we have been having the last few days here (and believe me – we have needed it), Emilie has been spoiling to go puddle jumping. This afternoon, the rain finally let up for a little bit, and we hit the puddles. Here are some of my favourite shots:

I’ve been trying to get outside a lot more, and this little girl is helping me do it. She is so much fun. <3 Things around the homestead have been busy. I've been picking up a lot of hours at work, which is lovely for my wallet. I'm hoping to start saving for the Sect of the Horned God meetup in Vegas next April, so a little extra coin is always nice. LOL. My diet is going well. I will be posting my second month results sometime next week, once I get the measurements from Natalie. Super excited. 🙂
