So, it’s official, I’ve completed my challenge to be vegan for a month. Guess what? I’m going to stick with it!
After a month of being vegan I decided it would be ok to have a veggie pizza ( not vegan) after a night out. I then ate it and cried. I cried because I was so disappointed in myself. I didn’t even want the pizza that much and I definitely didn’t need it. I felt so gross after. I can’t explain it, it just felt so wrong! Cheese was my hardest thing to give up when becoming vegan and now 80% of the time I think about milk chocolate or cheese I want to vom! I sometimes crave it but after a few minutes I realise I’d much rather after a juicy pineapple or some veggie chilli!
What’s changed being vegan?
-Everything and nothing has changed! I definitely have more energy and I don’t want to sit around and do nothing all day. I have a zest for life, I want to achieve and help and be pro-active! My ibs is a lot less often. I still get it but it’s more of a once a week thing not a every two days thing. I’m still trying to work out what triggers it but I’m getting there.
-I continue to lose weight and eat what I want whenever I want and how much of it I want.
-I don’t crave half as much as I used to
– my skin. My skin is softer and clearer. I’ve never had bad skin before. My skin is more dry than oily therefore I never got that many spots. Two weeks ago I suddenly came out in loads of spots, this really scared me! However, they have now cleared up and ther has been no sign of anymore since. I’m putting it down to the stress of exams and a change in hormones. I was also on my period ( TMI! ) so my body just needed a bit of TLC – poor little thing!
– I’m happier. I feel more positive . I have a good out look on life. I’m excited.
Overall, I love being a vegan and I will continue. I am not perfect and there’s a lot more I can do to be a healthier being. I need to cut out crisps and Oreos! I’m also starting training for a half marathon so that will help my fitness.
I hope everyone’s having a good day! I am going to blog about anxiety, depression and more vegan recipes very soon!
