GMV: Friends

Ah, I’m still vegetarian and vegan at least 3 days of the week, it’s hard being around 100% meat eaters or exception-ists (as in people who mainly eat vegetarian but still consume meet once in a while, gravy, seafood, eggs)

But what is hard is that most of the people whom surround me are not vegan or vegetarians and i simply have accepted that, which ive noticed online people on vegan sites hate for example other vegans whom are different (i.e. high fat, low fat, 80/10/10, raw, raw till 4, frutarians) But personally i just don’t hate people (rather dislike two people of which i don’t even talk to) so below i came up with a list of people or things that surround me that aren’t vegan and that i have accepted this, and my ultimate goal is to find friendships that are vegan or vegetarian.

What I have accepted:

-My friends eat meat (except for 1, she eats a hot dog once a year though haha Kim ūüôā but is vegetarian)

-My boyfriend eats meat

-People I live with eat meat

-Coworkers eat meat

-No restaurants surve vegan meals in Huntingdon

What I can change:

– Find friends who are vegan and vegetarian and accept them into my circle of happiness

– only hopefully influence my boyfriend- can’t change him though. It is tough being two different people, living two different lifestyles and sharing an intimate relationship. my boyfriend has practically been the same guy for the last 4 years and me myself I’ve changed or reinvented myself at least 4 times in the last 4 years.

-Move into my own vegan home, where no harm is done to any animal

-Start out sourcing for far vegan restaurants in Montreal or just never eat out and save $$$$

and as for my coworkers (excluding k.) that really is not an issue it was just a point as to whom surrounds me that is not similar in lifestyles to me. I was simply just listing people, thus being i mean no offence to anyone whom eats meat i listed yous for example purposes.

Also a few other plans for when i have my own home. veggies and fruits EVERYWHERERERERERERESSSSSSSS ūüôā

organic and eco-friendliness

positivity and happiness

fitness and yoga.

all in all better things for me, my soul, the environment, and for anyone around me. ( what do i mean for anyone around me ? you know when you walk down the street and the guy in front of you is smoking and you get a big lung full of his nasty second hand smoke ? well no one around me will suffer from my second hand smoke or chemicals or litter(because i don’t smoke and don’t litter and avoid using chemicals that are toxic) – i do pollute because i fart and drive a car haha- but most of the things i do and plan on doing will better earth in some way or form.

what have you done today to  better yourself or planet earth ?

do you think eating meat is killing ?

What do you agree or disagree with ?

lastly, have any advice fellow vegans/vegetarians ?

Update

Lately, I’ve been not working out as much as I’ve been wanting to and have been sleeping a lot and I’ve been ¬†sore quite often.

I know I haven’t been working out much, but I’ve been walking a lot and they have been long walks.

like 5km – 8kms with my dog Dutchess.

Also I’ve been going with my boyfriend and/or friends.

But besides daily walks I’ve gained weight, mind you when my mom passed 3 weeks ago I lost control of my fitness and diet.

And it is disappointing, I mean it is understandable, but it is still disappointing.

C’est la vie.

Peace

P.S.¬†sorry I haven’t been¬†blogging¬†as much, I have blogs written but I have yet to publish them, sadly my¬†mom got in a¬†fetal¬†car accident on March 27th and¬†everything is just not the same. I am working on getting¬†things¬†back in a system. It’s pretty sad and terrible all at the same¬†time¬†and¬†I¬†don’t know what to say to you guys. Most of my personal friends and Facebook knows about her passing and I just feel like it is time for my followers to know. If you what so ever have any advice .. please leave me some, I know it is not easy and I have accepted this. Finally I would like to just¬†say¬†I miss you mom ¬†</3¬†

GMV: Hardest step

So this is the second entry in my Girl meets vegan (and in later Girl meets vegan lifestyle meaning that I have successfully become vegan) This entry is a little on the worrisome side and the unsureness of my decision.

Coffee.

And

Dairy. (less of a concern / problem as compared to coffee hence why this blog will mostly address my coffee problems)

These two things have been in my life for years.

I grew up as a little girl occasionally getting tea and then steady at the age of 14/15 I would have a cup a day, then my late teens 17- 22 I would have more than cup ¬†a day sometimes ¬†a pot a day- I did included 22 there because I only started changing my habits in March and ¬†I turned 22 in February so that is accounted for. ¬†And going back to my 17 years I would have a pot a day – I didn’t like soda and coffee was relatively a cheap beverage, so it was and still is an addiction.

I plan on quitting coffee, maybe cold turkey, maybe substitute it with something else.

One thing is for sure I am ADDICTED to caffeine, the kind of massive head ache, and even sometimes vomiting if I don’t consume a cup of caffeine a day. Mind you as long as I have a cup a day of tea or coffee I’m good as gold.

I don’t want to be addicted to this. Maybe if coffee was a super food it would bother me, but it is not a super food and has been labeled as bad for you. Sometimes I won’t even consume other beverages like water or juice it was/is just coffee. Thirsty have a cup of coffee, preworkout beverage is coffee. (~~Mind you these are true and real examples of my self between 17 and 22, But I have started since Jan 2014 to cut down on coffee consumption and first thing in the am have a good big ol’ gulp of water, sometimes 1/4 a glass sometimes a cup of water~~)

So to conclude, I want to quit coffee and limit my milk intake or replace these two intakes with better healthier options that I’m not addicted to.

What are you addicted too ?

Peace

working out in bed.

No, I’m not talking about sexy time haha, bet you wished eh ?

Yea it’s pretty simple, sometimes during Tv commercials or loafing I will do these:

-sit ups / crunches with my hands behind my head

-Bicycle sit ups: same concept as a sit up but I leave my knees not bent but at 90 degree angle and as I pull one leg to my chest I stretch/push the other out all the while flexing my abs (having a solid core). Basically like I’m ¬†peddling a bike.

~I  REALLY feel that last one on my abs.

-Leg lifts I lay flat on the bed with my hands either flat by my sides or just tucked under my butt and lift my legs 6 inches off of the bed and hold for as long as I can.  I always try to aim for a minute.

-Triceps dips using the edge of the couch or bed.

Sometimes when I’m watching youtube videos I will do:

-Push ups
-Donkey butt kicks

-planks

-Squats

~Whatever it is I’m always moving while watching some Tv or videos

-Active rest-

So yea these are somethings I do to ensure I’m always doing something semi productive even when I’m just being lazy.¬†

Peace

Yes that is my goal for the month, 20 hours of running, not too hard in my opinion about 40 minutes a day and I’ll achieve this goal no problem!

But I don’t workout on weekends so this is where I run into problems (pun!)

So from here on out I have 16 days to finish my goal- I think I have already accumulated 3-4 hours , I honestly am not sure.

But I will update you all if I achieve my goal of running 20 hours this month! 

What are your fitness goals this month ?

Simple Sunday

So today is a wholee lot of relaxing and loafing.

Typically I was late for work this morning.

According to yesterdays time I was only 15 minutes late Рbut according to todays time  I was an hour and fifteen minutes late.

So yea I was 1:15 minutes late. Great.

I’m not a morning person – actually I used to refer to myself as a night owl, so now I have been working mornings since December – I still can’t get up in time to leave. I always have about 6 alarms but I snooze every single one, or when I’m half asleep I’ll just turn them all off.

And now we have changed the time- great which means I have to get up an hour earlier than what I would regularly.

Anyways, point being I can’t get up in the am.

Ao for the rest of the day i’m going to crochet, play black ops Ghost, Blog, instagram and maybe workout. I’m feeling pretty lazy today though.

How is your day ?

peace
