Yes you read that correctly – I am going to embrace my veggie ways again and try to figure out what is happening with my head and body.
You see, I flip flop like a fish outta water on this issue. I do not choose a lifestyle for its moral reasons ( well maybe a little) but merely for the effect it has on my body.
I tried Paleo , Failed!
I tried to eat clean – Failed! Not epically failed but I had moments where I knew what I put in my mouth was not the best choice .
So here I am again pondering. It all happened at 7am today .
I stepped on the scale .
It read 170lbs!
OH HELL NO!
What is happening? I hate this stupid thing , I know this is not Gains , this is Not muscle growth .
My brain is instantly calculating how many more lbs until I see 284 again . I panicked and said enough is enough. I had to make a change and a significant one too.
I need more vegetables , fruit and water ASAP. It worked before it will work again.
Morally I do like being a vegetarian , not because animals are killed , I get that – it happens , people need food.
I do not like the genetically altered antibiotic riddled meat that is factory farmed in our country. I was eating Grassfed beef for the past week or so from a local farmer . That was great.
I spent the day looking back at old race photos , I could clearly pick out the ones where I was a non meat eater – I was leaner . Not as fluffy and puffy.

So here goes my battle with my head over what’s right and what’s not but in the end I know I feel better when I fuel my body with good wholesome vegetables.
But seriously , you know I’m a head case when I choose to do this on Thanksgiving weekend!
To-Furkey it is lol !
Happy Holidays to my fellow Canadians who are celebrating with family .
