Hello!

My name is Christina and I need to change. Period.
For years I have been doing the research and after seeing Forks over knives and Food matters there was no way around it anymore.
My body is telling me to stop abusing it.
My mind wants to live on a healthier planet!
I was never one to go with a latest diet,... I did fell for the meat eating bodybuild belief.
But boy, does it make me tired.
I fell in love with Brendan Brazier's books, Ani Phyo's and I just recieved Vegan bodybuilding by Robert.
I do not want to be a skinny fat person, I want stong, sexy muscles and a healthy BF%.
So , that is what I am gonna do!
A mission, a clear goal.
I just started to become a Fyto- and Nutrition specialist and an extra course in Somatic psychology.
I just wrapped up doing the NLP practitioner and my mind is strong!
No more talk the talk ....walk the walk! #inspire others.

My biggest goals for now:
:arrow: Lower BF%
:arrow: No more back ache
:arrow: More enegery (to study)
:arrow: Be able to run 15 km
:arrow: Feel confident again in my own skin
:arrow: Go vegan completely
:arrow: Rid my skin condition


Look forward to meeting you all! :D

Christina

I noticed today is hard.
I looked in the mirror and got a case of the "get there now -itis".
Why am I not SEEING results I ask myself.
I know it takes about 7 weeks of training and clean eating to SEE something.
What messes me up is I FEEL thinner on the inside since started this way of eating.
My body is not craving anything. My head is. :snakeman:
I want to feel comforted...it comes down to being scared.
No more false beliefs.
Sticking with this.
Sticking with me.
I am focussing on health.
I am beautifull any-way.
:queen:

Remember that one of the side effects of clean eating is detoxing. And not only headaches, but fatigue also, is a sign of detox.
One way to help get over it faster is to flush it with more water by drinking water more than your NORMAL amount (and yes, you will be going to the bathroom to flush the toxins away!).

Another reason why I think it might be detox is because you said you don't feel like eating more. Sometimes the detoxing body doesn't want to deal with digesting food, and your body is telling you that.

Your body is also telling you to take it easy, by making you fatigue and actually making you take naps. it will be hard to detox and perhaps exercise to the amount you want to do.

This should only last about a month or so (depending on how much of a detox you have - toxins are stored in fat cells usually - so if you have a certain amount of fat cells, you might have a certain amount of toxins to release).

Saturday was a day I fell asleep AGAIN in the afternoon. :smt017
Eating all vegan and clean yet not ideal.

Meal 1
1 apple

Meal 2
Chocolate mousse
made of 1/2 avocado, 1 banana, 1 date, coco powder raw.

Meal 3
Beets with garlic, balsamic vinigar and rosemary from the oven
1 cup mixed brown rice and kidney beans
Nutritional yeast

40 minute walk

Meal 4
2 small vigs and 1 cup organic muesli
1/2 cup almond milk

Meal 5
2 cups organic muesli
1/2 cup almond milk

Been studying too long and was really hungy...grabbed that instead of prepping veggies...which is not my style
Really needed more veggies today.
