Man, I am still struggling to get back on the damn bandwagon, you guys! It has been such a struggle.
I only lost 200g in the last week, but to be honest, after one too many toasted cheese sandwiches for lunch because I lost all will to meal plan, I actually expected to put on at least 1kg.
I am slowly getting back into my running, which I have missed terribly and I’m really enjoying. It always feels like a good workout – I tend to hold back when I do resistance or plyometric workouts, because I tell myself I’m tired – but when I run, I don’t even let myself walk, and I push myself to just keep going so I know I get a better work out in.
I’m also looking at different lifestyle changes, and I have been reading up a lot about a vegan lifestyle. I haven’t officially started it yet, but it’s definitely something I want to really work at because I do believe it is healthier. The one thing that concerns me is that you have to supplement your diet – while I already take tons of vitamins, it concerns me that I’d be possibly causing harm to myself by choosing that diet.
I have quit dairy this week, however, as logically I know that it is not ‘normal’ to drink milk as adults. I’ve switched over to almond milk which I think is DELICIOUS. I have also quit sugar (again).
I’m going to try avoid red meat as much as possible, and focus on alternative protein sources. I may ultimately cut out chicken and fish as well – for a number of personal reasons. I will probably continue eating eggs because they’re a great source of protein. However, I want to research this properly to ensure I fully understand what the human body needs and how I can achieve that through nutrition.
Any tips or advice would be great! If you have any sources that I can read, that would be great too.
Hopefully I’ll have better news of at least 1kg loss next week! Have a good one, friends.
