The past week was awesome with a capitol “A”!!! Wow!!! I killed each workout I had. I ate healthy. I made solid decisions where before given the same chance to make these kinds of decisions, I would have totally made the bad decision. The biggest thing for me this week has been, I have NOT had one sip of coffee or diet soda. This also means that I have not had any of the “devil” sugar ie aspartame. My husband and I have been doing a lot of research on foods and through this research I have decided to give up aspartame (which I used equal for my coffee and diet soda has it in it). I have ate clean (mostly fruits/veggies) for the last week. Initially I felt like I had no energy, but as the week went on, I was blasting through workouts without a problem. Gosh it felt so darn good!
This week my husband and I have been on a documentary tear. We watched Food Matters, Hungry For Change and Vegucated all on Netflix. All I can say is wow!!! Each documentary was eye opening. The things they put the animals through is terrible, I actually teared up on several parts of the films. My husband and I both have decided to give up meat. While we won’t do it before the current meat in our house is gone (we wont waste it sorry), the next time we go grocery shopping we will NOT buy any meat. We are not saying we will become vegans, however the goal is to eat as less meat as possible for now. After we talked about this, we both agreed we will see where it takes us. In my heart, I personally feel we may be headed down the path of becoming vegan or at least vegetarian because we are both aware of what eating products from animals is doing to us. I’m excited that we are doing it together as it will make it easier for the both of us.
Until next time, here’s to an awesome upcoming week!!!
