I’ve gone Pescetarian! No more meat…besides fish, and well…you know. Lol It’s an empowering feeling to know that I have made this lifestyle change. I’ve been seriously contemplating this diet change for months now and it took one documentary to completely make the switch. Vegicated. It’s actually a documentary on Veganism but I can’t go that extreme. A segment of the documentary revealed the torture our animals go through behind slaughterhouse walls and I was in tears. It was almost unbearable to watch how inhumane the animals are treated. “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.” –Paul McCartney

I’ve also committed to a sobriety challenge for the entire year of 2013. No marijuana or alcohol. Period. Instead, I’ve been drinking all sorts of different teas and expanding my diet and consuming a hell of a lot more fruits and vegetables than I’ve ever eaten in my life. And to my surprise, I’m gaining weight! If you’re a hater like I once was, you should try eating more nuts. I combine walnuts, almonds, peanuts and m&ms to munch on all day.
This past Monday I tried something new for the first time and accompanied my friend to a 90 minute guided meditation class. It was so rejuvenating! I walked out of the room and thought I was floating on clouds. I love it because it goes hand in hand with yoga and they make me feel so good.
Here’s a picture of the newest pose me and a special someone are trying to master.
