When I first started working out, years ago. I use to love doing cardio because the feeling of your body continuously moving felt great. Now that I’m going to the gym and using BodySpace as my guide to help figuring out what exercises to do, I think I love strength training more. To me, your body does more. With cardio, you continuously do the same thing for however long you want but with strength training, you do a lot more in the same length of time. Once I was done and looked at my log, I found out that I did 9 freaking exercises, NINE! It didn’t seem that way because I was going from one exercise to another.
First, before I say anything else, I want to have a disclaimer here: I’m not a vegan, I eat meat. Right now I don’t because my body is undergoing a clean right now.
One thing about being vegan, I’m finding out, is that it’s easier this time around than 2 years ago. There are a lot more items out now that vegan. Today Star and I went to Publix and while we was walking an aisle, a miso soup package caught my eye. Now I am missing heavier foods like pasta and rice and stuff because I’ve been eating mostly fruits, veggies and bars. I enjoy what I’m eating and that’s why I’ve been vegan for over a week while that last time, I barely lasted 3 days. So anyway, I took a look at it and to my freaking surprise it was VEGAN. Not only that one but others too. I also got a Split Pea Soup. *happy dance*
I’ve lost 3 lbs so far and I’m happy to see that number go down. I wonder how long I can take being vegan before my body craves in for meat lol. I eat meat no lie. I’m also happy that when I pass by a fast food place, the smell of the food doesn’t tempt me anymore. I smell and go yuck. That’s a sign to me that my body is on the right track and when I want to have a cheat day, it’ll be my choice and not my body.
