So, the title says it all. I mean this week though….!!!!! Coming back from a vacation is never easy. I always say you need a vacation to recover from a vacation. Monday was a rough start to the week with taking my son to a specialist for there being high levels of calcium in his urine. He had to have blood work done and…😢😢😢 it was rough. As a result G now has to eat a low sodium diet. I guess we all should be on a low sodium diet and I will have to be much more aware of everything he’s eating. I don’t mind doing this at all!!! I’m actually kind of glad that it was brought to my attention bc I want my child to be as healthy as possible. Any Mommas with advice on this I accept with open ears!!! Then Tuesday was his FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN!!!! All you Mommas out there feel me on this I’m sure… He’s all grown up!
Then, like an idiot, I made the bright decision to start the monomeals. I ate only bananas for 1.7 days. 🍌😊 It was ok except I could barely finish my last lunch banana on Tuesday afternoon for my snack. 😝 So, I ate a big salad for dinner that night. Since then, I’ve eaten completely raw🍅🍌🍇🍐🍐🍋🍏🍎🍉🍍🍈. I want to cleanse a little from my vacation. I think I’ve cleaned out real good because I’ve had a lot of 💩 (Sorry for TMI). Hopefully, I can make it to the weekend. The stress of my job plus the craziness from my son and all his stuff this week only makes me want to stress eat!!!! What was I thinking?!?!?!?
Well, my birthday is Monday and I’m going to have a few good foods and maybe a drinky poo or too…🍺, 🍻😜. I may not have picked the best week to do this stuff but I did it none the less. I have felt pretty good too…considering.
Anyone else cleansing or have any advice for cleansing?
I will continue to try to make time to post and blog my progress and struggles. He he. I am now accepting encouragements! 😆
So, I haven’t blogged in a while and I want to try to do this more often. I know my posts don’t have to be long. Just gotta stick with it. Again, I started blogging to motivate people to get healthy, go vegan, go gluten free,get motivated, encourage, support and create a community of people that are more like me with real struggles and real life stuff. I haven’t been on my game with the gluten free stuff much lately. I will always and forever be vegan. That’s just all there is to it for me anymore. My heart and mind are changed forever and I’ll never go back to eating animal. I’ve seen and learned too much. After going on vacation last week I’m thinking about doing a drastic cleanse starting with doing a monomeal deal. A “monomeal” is having the same fruit for every meal for like 3 days or more. The point is to cleanse your body for a fresh start and not confuse your body during that time. I think I’m gonna eat only bananas for 3 days and then try eating raw for a while. Any takers on joining me??!?!? Come on people, let’s do something incredible for our bodies and see what happens!!!
I have been bad about posting. Such is my life. I haven’t told anything about myself. I’m a mom of course. I have an amazing 4 year old that I can’t wait to share funny stories about. I’m also a supervisor of social workers. I love this line of work but often times it feels like I’m always in crisis mode. My schedule is always, ALWAYS changing and that can make any kind of routine be nearly impossible. I do want to start posting more pics and posts. I would love to gain a good little group of readers. So, I started the 30 day challenge and then I realized “oh crap it’s fall!” So I changed a few days to fit the fall weather. Saturday night we had a bonfire and friends over so I made a big pot of vegan chili. One of my favorite things about fall is SOUP!!! Tonight I made a yummy vegan pumpkin soup!! OMG! It’s a must try and honestly it was super easy too! I will post the link to the website!! I also, because of the stress of my job, almost always have to have a glass of red wine on days like today. Today, was the Monday from HELL!!! Oh well, my antioxidant rich red wine (because drinking CAN be healthy) was so warm and made me feel more relaxed as I sipped it and watched a little of Silver Linings Playbook! Great movie if you haven’t seen it! I’m so curious if anyone else has stumbled across any new yummy fall soups!! Leave your recipes in the comments. I’ll try anything once. 😉 Well, hope everyone’s week is awesome!
So, in honor of my first post and in honor of my one year being Vegan and Gluten free I’m starting a 30 challenge. My bestie and I are actually starting and taking all the work out of it for anyone who wants to try it. It’s complete with 30 day meal plan, grocery list and recipes! Oh, and, it’s free!!! I’m gonna post the link to everything in the blog below!
Now, a little bit about this journey
. I initial started a challenge much the same as this one to lose weight. I was the heaviest I had been (except pregnancy) and I felt as if it was getting out of control. My family has always struggled with weight, diabetes, and other serious health problems caused by being over weight. I was done. It wasn’t easy. Lots of people made fun of me for it but here I am 35lbs lighter than I was a year ago! It feels great! Join me! Take control of your health and your life. If you are a mom, do it for your family. Do it so you will be a super fun and active grandmother some day. I’m here for you with inspiration and motivation!!! I want to inspire other moms to feel as good as I do and to teach our families a healthier way to live!! Follow me on Instagram @mom2g and see pics for motivation and inspiration along the way! Here we go!
