Hey all,

I have a confession to make...I was following a vegan diet for approx 8 months and remember how great I felt; not just physical but mentally sane. Believe me this is extremely hard with my job. I currently work nights (6 p - 6 a) in a very demanding job.
I also use to run a lot but injured my back about a year ago, so my fitness schedule has also been inconsistent but I love lifting weights (free weights, not machines).
Now for the bad part...Last December I started dating someone who thinks if the meal doesn't have meat it's not a real meal.
So for the past year I have compromised on what I eat. I have gone back and forth between a vegan/vegetarian diet to a standard diet until I finally gave up and began eating whatever nasty fast food was available...and believe me that’s all that’s available at night. I am now so confused about what I'm supposed to be eating to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So today, I am making a commitment to myself to follow my beliefs about nutrition no matter what others say. I need to do this for me! l hope that by starting this blog I will hold myself accountable to my decision to be healthy. It will be a long process to re-educate myself on healthy nutrition so any help will be appreciated.
I will upload before (current) pictures in a few days, as well as my training log, and nutrition log. Wish me luck!

OK so I completed whole day without eating junk. Very proud of myself.
Here's what I ate:
Breakfast - 1/2 cup oatmeal with banana, walnuts, flaxseed, and a splash of almond milk
Snack - homemade pumpkin protein bar (vegetarian)
Lunch - brown rice, sautéed tempeh, mushrooms, and broccoli with a cup of pineapple
Snack - apple
Dinner - bowl of miso soup, with soba noodles, and mixed veggies with 2 tangerines (small)
Snack - handful of raw almonds

No exercise today. It was very challenging. As I stated I work nights so by 2 am I was craving sugar.

Hopefully, I can keep it up tomorrow. Now time for sleep. Happy Sunday all.
