Ok, so my lifestyle-changing resolutions of 2012. So far so good! it took me a while to get into the whole bible reading, mainly because I feel like i have so many questions…that no one will even begin to answer. and that shit is frustrating beyond belief. But for the most part, I’ve been reading everyday, following the email plan that I signed up for. (shit, I forgot yesterday. looks like I’ve got work to do…)
As for the pescatarianism, i’ve been doing GREAT! i’m actually ridiculously proud of myself for my success so far. I know it’s only been like a week, but in that week, my sister ordered pepperoni pizza with extra pepperoni, (I ordered a veggie pizza, with thin crust…) my aunt ordered pizza and wings for when I babysat; i’m a sucker for wings. holy shit it took everything in me to not open the box and even touch one.. (thumbs up) and I ate a slice of cheese pizza. Oh yea, last night my mom made spaghetti with this meat sauce that looked effin delicious. I took my pasta and added butter and parm. OH YEA, tony came by the other day, and of course, he’s a guy and guys think they need meat to survive…he was hungry and so was I, but the only meat i had in the house was bacon from new years (before i made the resolution, of course) so I made 2 separate things. i made myself plain pasta with some butter garlic and parm, and I cooked the bacon, chopped it up, and put it in his pasta. I didn’t even taste the bacon. this shit is serious. I am so committed to this! but goddamn, that bacon smelled so good. hahaha it’s def getting easier everyday, but I think I just realized how much meat we actually consume and that is all around me! shit is crazy.
i went grocery shopping yesterday to stock my fridge with goodies, and I bought sooo much healthy stuff! tons of fruits and veggies, that I have to go and cut and freeze so they dont go bad on me… whole grain cereals, tea, whole grain bread, some shrimp, some fish, oats for oatmeal, rice..and soy milk! i tried soy milk in my cereal this morning and honestly, I didn’t think i would like it. but it was delicious! i don’t even like real milk cuz it makes my stomach upset (no i’m not lactose intolerant but milk just doesnt make me feel good) but this was great! good choice. even though it def costs a dollar more than real milk… smh. o well.
i know the whole soymilk thing doesn’t seem necessary cuz i’m only a pescatarian, not a vegan.. but i watched another shitton of documentaries including: “food inc.” which made me so disgusted about meat, this whole thing has become way less hard for me, and “forks over knives” which made me seriously consider a plant based diet. that movie changed my whole views on food, swear to god. anyone who has the chance should watch it, it’s on netflix.. but geez. so i’m trying to slowly incorporate a plant based diet in my life. i know i’ll prolly never go all the way with it, but i think i like half and half for sure.
as for training for my half marathon, I found a good plan to stick to, but decided to start when the semester starts. just cuz i’ll have a stable schedule to go at the same time.. and the gym will be open regularly. (i’m sure the whole weight goal will come with a mix of the training and the new diet, so i’m not too worried)
as for a new hobby….smh. i’ve clearly started blogging more again, so thats good! otherwise….i guess i’ve been watching documentaries which is considered a hobby, right? pshht. i’ll keep lookin, haha
