Vegan Update: Week 4

Oatmeal with granola, almond butter, and banana. Happy Monday!  We are OFFICIALLY in the homestretch of our 30 day vegan diet!!  I am actually having my first non-vegan meal on Wednesday night (the 30th day) because I am going out for a birthday dinner and I’ll be honest: I’m just not going out again and eating vegan!  I went out with a girlfriend last week who was in town visiting.  She wanted to try a new restaurant, Zeppelin.  I was eager to try it, too!  They are known for having great cocktails and interesting small plates.  Well, it turned out I was getting my eyebrows done the next day (permanent makeup), so I couldn’t drink alcohol.  To make matters worse, […]

Vegan Update: Week 3

Happy Monday!!  First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who donated to my fundraiser for the Sherry Spin-Along.  Sherry is a personal friend of mine and I truly believe that these dollars go towards saving her life and others, so it is very close to my heart.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  I was overwhelmed by the number of people who donated.  Because of you I was the number one fundraiser (if you don’t count Martin and Sherry, which I don’t LOL)! The donation site will be open for the rest of the week, so if you didn’t get a chance there is still time!  I received donations from $10-$1000 and I’m equally thankful for all of them!!  EVERY […]

Vegan Update: Week 2

Happy Monday!  We are almost halfway through a month of vegan and we’re still here and still vegan!  Here’s our weekly update on what we’ve been eating and how we’re feeling. I would say around day 10 was the first time I didn’t want to eat a vegan meal.  I wasn’t craving anything specific like pizza or queso…I just didn’t want another salad.  But I have found with eating in general…once you start, you’ll end up satisfied.  So I had quinoa, refried beans, and some sautéed veggies and it was fine!  I am hovering around 5-6 pounds lost which is great for me.  I don’t have a lot of weight to lose; I just want to take off what I […]

We’re Going Vegan

Happy Friday!  I’ve mentioned that Lance and I decided to go vegan for January, so I wanted to elaborate on why we decided to do this, share my initial grocery haul, show you what I’ve been eating, and share my thoughts on the first full week! Generally, I keep my diet and workout routine pretty regimented.  During the Holidays, I overindulge.  I always do it.  I don’t even try NOT to do it.  It’s my favorite time of the year and to me, food and the Holidays just go hand in hand.  Being in retail, I don’t really get a break from Thanksgiving to the New Year (we even have to do a physical inventory of the store on NEW […]
