I have to say, I am over getting a mere 7 hours of daylight a day. I added the "Sunrise and Sunset Times" calendar to my Google Calendar today, and was relieved to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! January 31st has a sunrise of 7:38am and a sunset of 5:11pm. Totally doable.
Here's my nighttime jogging loot. It's pure joy shedding 18 extra pounds when I return home:
The past 3 years I have strapped on my self-discipline and proceeded to put myself on a strict vegan diet during January. It all started because I had shed myself of some sort of less-than-ideal habit every January. This was just supposed to only last one January, until I realized how great I felt, and continue to feel each January.
I realize that while I enjoy being vegan, it is a very difficult lifestyle to maintain. I know that I need to set a goal for myself, such as lasting only a month, or else I don't think it would stick very well when I don't do it 100% based on personal belief (such as animal cruelty).
Long story short, real food makes me feel real good. But that doesn't mean I don't want a blizzard every now and again.
|This is my husband's bowl He gets cheese. I do not.|
I made the above "creamy sundried tomato soup" tonight, which turned out great. I added pesto, since it's what you do when you make anything with sundried tomatoes.That's Scott's bowl - he thinks he's cooler than me with all his cheese. Little does he know that I accidentally finished off the rest of the pot without him, sans cheese. It was that good.
Have you tried a drastically different diet lately?
