Clothes Shopping for this Vegan

Hello there. I haven’t been able to post anything all day, work has been nuts.

I hope that you enjoyed Ashley’s guest post today about her journey becoming a vegan. Some great insights into the transition, benefits, and thoughts into the world of being vegan 🙂

This morning I had: Carob Naner Oats (1/2 c. rice flakes, 1 huge banana, 1 tsp. chia seeds, 1/2 c. water and rice milk, 1 tsp. carob powder)

Oh my heavens..it was FABULOUS. I love me some chocolate, and carob helps be get the fix. Work was just crazy so it kept me going for about three hours until I drank a cup of green tea.

I was a little bit hungry so I had an apple with about 10 almonds and my nasty tolerable detox drink (I am doing the detox drink to help my stomach out, it’s an ongoing thing and will probably be part of my diet for awhile)

I went and got some pictures developed did some shopping.

I am going to rock it. I was actually inspired by Diane’s post about getting new clothes when you are losing weight. I am not where I want to go right now weight wise, and I have a closet full of clothes that used to fit. However, I am getting to where I want to be and I am tired of depriving myself of thinking that I shouldn’t be allowed to have new clothes. I have only bought one thing in the last year, a pair of jeans. My thinking pattern was ‘if I buy this bigger size than I will stay here’. I have de-bunked that. Getting to where you want to be isn’t about deprivation, it’s about appreciation. So, I am going to rock it. 🙂

I then saw these beautiful flowers on the way back after shopping.

Then shoved this in my face. Remind you of this last night? Twice Baked and Stuffed Sweet Potatoes w/ 2 tsp Peanut Butter and roasted broccoli w/ an organic tomato.

YUMMY. I also snacked on a TB of organic/natural peanut butter. I was admittedly hungry after work so I snacked on this before blogging my heart away 🙂


This week has been crazy and frankly my working out and tri training isn’t exactly where I want it to be. However, I know and am confident that it will sort itself out in the next couple of days.

Speaking of which I am literally headed out the door to do a 22 1/2 minute run for your life run. Hit it!
