No backing down
I’ve had some time to think since my last post and after a few lovely comments from readers. I love you guys!
But, in regards to my vegan diet, now is NOT the time to back down. It seems I’m always looking for new goals or challenges to take on and now that it has been three months since I started eating vegan, I think that feel of things is gone. Which is why I thought maybe making some concessions was the way to go.
The problem with this way of thinking, for me, is that one concession usually leads to another and before I know it, I would be eating a lot of things I normally wouldn’t and probably not even enjoying it very much. When I was eating vegan the best way I know how, I wasn’t eating too much, I was feeling satisfied and really enjoying my food and mood. While that hasn’t completely slipped away, I can feel that turn coming if I don’t get off this road.
So…I’m going to stay the course!
I’ve already learned so much from other bloggers like Lindsey, Vegan Yogini, Vegan Crunk, Cooking for a Vegan Lover, Mama Pea and Happy Herbivore, plus tons of other vegans on Twitter. I need to keep being inspired. I also got a really awesome cookbook for Christmas from my friend Courtney called My Sweet Vegan that I can’t wait to start making some desserts out of. She knows me well 😉
I think just venting on here that I was struggling to keep up motivation helped a lot. While I’m still looking for a direction for my blog to go in, I think just having a place to organize my thoughts is such a blessing. But you all are always here for me, offering suggestions, tips and support. Thank you so much for that.
Here’s to staying vegan in 2010! 🙂
