Things have gotten suddenly crazy in my life. I’ve been impressed that I’ve maintained my veganism for 9 days, and have resisted the urge to smoke even though stress is my main trigger.
I’ve been kind of slacking on my budget- for many reason.
1) Laziness. I have bought a Bolthouse Juice for the past three days (around 3.50 each bottle) because I love getting my fruit fix but haven’t had had time to buy and make smoothies. That automatically blows my budget.
2) My failed bread experiements. Not extremely pricey, only a few bucks down the drain. I’ve learned from my mistakes (I hope) and I think a successful loaf is baking as we speak.
3) My determination to resist non-vegan temptations which prompted me to buy more expensive food to placate myself. Example: Walnuts, a vegan chocolate bar, vegan chocolate granola bar, and potstickers from Whole Foods in a moment of weakness and hunger.
So for now, I think I’m going to take a slight break from my budget. Don’t fear, just until I get myself more settled into veganism. I still will blog about my journey and explorations into my new food choices. I also have found it really cathartic to write about my life intermingled in with my posts about food (which I’m obsessed with). Its been helping me to deal with the new changes I’ve had going on.
At any rate.
I’m planning on starting yoga tomorrow. I’m so excited. If not tomorrow for some reason, if I had to work late, then on Sunday. I can finally breathe and report that my cold is 97% over. The extra lingering 3% is my stuffy and runny nose. But I’ve been hypothesizing lately that it could be a form of detoxing by expelling extra mucus from my body. Or I’m just running the course of a virus.
I’ll write more later, but just wanted to check in 🙂
