What Kind of Vegan Are You?

You may or may not have noticed, but I've kind of been slacking in the blogging this week.  Honestly, I have been depressed.  I haven't wanted to talk about what I'm eating, because I'm eating a smattering of junk food and too much alcohol.  Also, I'm still not working out to the levels I'm used to.  Combine all that together, and I'm feeling down.  Somehow, the less I work out, the more tired I am, which caused me to go to bed without blogging.  I promise to be better.

I saw this silly article the other day, and it got me thinking about what kind of vegan I want to be.  I don't want to be a lethargic, unhappy vegan.  I want to be a bubbly, vibrant vegan.  I want to be that kind of person, no matter what.  I'm thinking about my food choices more, and I'm going to fine tune it in the future.  I also went and signed up at 10 fitness, so I can have somewhere productive to go on my lunch break.  I have more procedures in the coming weeks that might give me workout stopping pain again, so I really need to watch my nutrition.

Here is a snap shot of the rest of my eats this week, and as you'll notice, it's a lot of heavy food with a few jar salads mixed in.

Josh ran his first race today, a Tough Mudder.  He went from not working out at all a few months ago to completing this crazy race, and I'm incredibly proud of him.  He set his mind to it and did it, and I am very inspired.  Sometimes, your partner does something to amazing you, and it makes you want to be a better person.  I want to be stronger and happier for him, but most of all for myself.  I am excited about working on my diet and fitness, so I'm going for a run.  Stay tuned this week for more consistent posts!
