Jolly's training journal

#1 Postby jollytyme » Mon Jan 02, 2012 12:59 pm

I watched the documentary "Forks over knives" on October 18th, 2011. I became vegan the very next day. I've never liked vegetables though, my whole 34yrs of life, I've eaten nothing but meat and potatoes. After only the 1st week of eating vegan, I already started feeling better, slept better at night, had more energy during the day. No more "2pm crash" while at work.

I've noticed my taste buds changing as well. I'm starting to like and even enjoy vegetables now. I've had my mom, dad and brother watch the documentary as well, and they've all said it really opened their eyes and they are going to start eating vegan too. My mother actually started the same day as I did and my dad and his wife and brother and his wife are starting today.

starting weight on oct 19th, 2011. 278lbs
weight on November 19th, 2011. 256lbs
weight on December 19th, 2011. 245lbs
weight this morning, January 2, 2012. 252 lbs

I work out Monday thru Friday and my rest days are Saturday and Sunday.
today I worked on back and abs.

Didn't make it to the gym today and ate rather poorly too. I'm on a plane right now headed back home from Vegas. I had been in Vegas since Dec 24th, made it to the gym regularly but my diet wasn't as good as it should have been. Hoping to get back on track soon.

What do you do that's got you traveling so much for work? PS - That's amazing you shared Forks over Knives with your fam. I did the same and they were way more responsive to it that I thought they would be. Even the stubborn are starting to open their eyes to being more health conscious these days, its great.

Hey there, Jolly! We're halfway through the New You for the New Year Challenge! How are things going? You were doing so great at consistent journaling, but haven't posted anything for a week now. :( Are you doing alright?

Hope you're staying happy and healthy in 2012!

All the best,
Karen
