Today is the last day of my 108 vegan days of yoga. It happens to coincide with the day before Easter. I boiled eggs for Sophia to color. I wondered if I should make some egg salad after the Easter egg hunt. I just don't think I can do it. Kenny, on the other hand thinks he might have some mac and cheese at midnight. Going forward we're going to be mostly vegan at home but allow for more options when we're out.
Being vegan and avoiding sugar means that I make more creative things from scratch and make more careful choices when I shop. I like knowing that I'm putting really high quality things into my body. Kenny did really well on the program. He lost weight and felt more alert in school. I didn't fare quite as well. In fact I gained a few pounds. Too many nuts and avocados? Not enough cardio? Probably some of both. I kind of thought that by eating perfectly all of my problems would be solved...I'd get back to my happy weight, my allergies would get better, and my skin would glow. I'm disappointed that I can't be like other people and report spectacular results. Perhaps forbidding things doesn't really work for me and I need to instead seek balance. Included in balance is indulging in the Girl Scout cookies I've been saving for many weeks.
