So, I made another post about how I want to go vegan. Somebody suggested I do a blog about it. I figured I am on here the most so I will document my progress here in Mom Confessions : ) I know it's not the typical Mom confession type of post. But hopefully a few people will enjoy it!
Day 2 : I started the day off with a green smoothie. Made from , banana, parsley, Kale, and blue berries, and half of a lemon's juice. I have to admit, it wasn't that tastey at first. This is just a smoothie a threw together with the ingredients I had availiable. No recipe. First sip..ew. Second sip..still..ew. 3rd sip...mmm not so bad. I am actually really loving parsley. My breathe has been feeling fresh ALL DAY from it. My mouth feels...clean? Not sure if you guys want to hear the next thing I am going to say. But, my bowels aren't all that great yet. Still little rabbit turds. I thought for sure the smoothie would clean me out. I'm thinking I will add some aloe vera next time. Maybe it will help get things moving. Here's something that has been bothering me... I was going to go Paleo before all this! Well..paleoish. So my freezer is stocked with exspensive grassfed Bison and beef. A good...$200 worth!! I can't just toss it. My husband is coming home on leave in the middle of my transition. I also do not want my 22 year old to go Vegan with me until I really know what I am doing. I have to admit..I really don't completely..yet. So for lunch I made sphagettie and meat sauce (grassfed and organic). My son ate the meat , sauce and whole grain pasta. I just had the meat and spaghetti sauce. I had the same thing for dinner. Not realy a good balance but I just ate what I had avaliable. I am going grovery shopping tommorow for more vegan friendly foods. So my husband called me not too long ago. I told him I haven't eaten meat for 2 days. He mentioned "You're going to be a bag of bones and be too skinny" blah blah. HE was the one who told me he went to a factory farm himself and saw how the animals were being treated and he wanted to CRY. Sooo what happened to that!? ALSO, I am 168 lbs and 5'8. I can stand to lose some weight! He just sounded sooo selfish and not supportive at all. It was discouraging. He likes my "Thick thighs and nice butt". But it's not really about the appearance for me. It's because #1 I don't like how the animals are treated and #2 I really think this will be good for my health. I have fibromyalgia, I am bi polar, and have anxiety. I can tell these b vitamins are alreayd helping my mood. Until I talked to him of course. I really hope he doesn't give me a hard time when he gets home about my choice to go vegan! He comes home May 3rd. I just really need hsi support more then anybody's. So, I am going to bed feeling pretty discouraged right now. Oh and I had some blueberries for late ngiht snack. ( Sorry that was WAY off subject) lol.
