When will I learn?

When will I learn?

For several years I was exercising and not losing weight. In January Tina and I chose to go completely vegan for 6 weeks. This included, the exclusion of processed foods. I lost a total of 17 pounds.

We ended up eating this way for 4 months. We both felt better and enjoyed the diet. Food tasted better and we were both healthier.

The slippery slope started when we decided we could add a few things back into the diet. Recently I’ve been struggling. I’ve gained weight and it seems impossible to stop eating sweets. I’ve been very frustrated.

I’ve upped my exercise and continue to gain or at least not lose. A few days ago the epiphany hit me….it doesn’t matter how much I exercise if I keep putting crap in my mouth.

So I’ve chosen to restart the vegan diet tomorrow. I’ve chosen to eat the foods that will help me lose weight and be healthier….wish me luck!

J = Juice

Juice, juicing….something I never thought I would do!

Since we started eating a plant based diet, juice has turned into a nice treat. We invested in a Vitamix and we enjoy trying new places that specialize in vegetarian or vegan foods and juices. Juice Junkies was one of the first places we tried…and has remained at the top of our list of favorites.
