Even though I have 10 days left before February is over, and 15 days before I post my next blog, I wanted to write this simple reflection. I watched “Forks Over Knives” today and I can not continue to ignore the signs.
My passion has been in health and wellness being active and learning more about myself as a human being. It doesn’t seem like we would have to “learn” what to eat as humans, after all we are told what is good for us and what is not good for us, right?! But who is “they” and what do “they” know about me and “why” are they telling me what is good for ME!
Attending Meditation in late 2010 I questioned becoming a vegetarian. I already ate more Organic foods and cut out red meat, but I was not ready to give up meat. The signs kept coming up for me. Last week I finally read about who Kris Carr was even though I had heard of “Crazy, Sexy, Diet” for a long time. I ordered her book and am now eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Today was the day I decided to go for the Whole Food plant-based diet. In order to be ok with it (as a meat lover) I decided to change my diet for Lent. I am playing mind games with myself in order to make the switch temporarily instead of permanent, this way I know my time frame and I will not cheat.
Very Sandy-like to experiment with myself. And so I will write weekly about this journey of mine for those who are wondering what happens. I will let you know how I feel emotionally. I will let you know how I feel physically. I will tell you about the easy parts and the struggles while doing this. I have no clue what is going to happen but I can almost guarantee the ups and downs. Don’t forget that I am training to run 10 miles in May so it will be interesting to see how this diet contributes to my training. I never ran 10 miles. I like short distances. Also, I have no interest in losing weight. So let’s see what happens!
Got the world figured out?
I did, until it came crashing down. I had no choice but to start over and rebuild.
