The sky wasn’t so pretty this morning
but neither was my heart.
I debated for while whether I should risk running in such temperamental weather
but figured a short run might be soothing for my heart.
So I strapped on my shoes
Truth is, I’ve been running a lot lately to de-stress the mind.
1) Overworked. Underpaid. Thank you, Economy.
2) My diet, my mother & me.
When it comes to food and my diet, my mother has been unwilling to compromise and accept my new vegan lifestyle.
But I’m also stubborn so our discussions about my diet has been a tug-a-war.
I’ve tried explaining to her that I haven’t crossed into the vegan territory blind.
I’ve done my research.
I’m reading cookbooks.
I’m learning about food science.
I’m learning how to create balanced meals.
I actually enjoy cooking real meals and not just baking for the first time.
I believe, now more than ever, that the vegan lifestyle is suitable for me.
I feel good about myself and my body.
I’ve become more confident in the way I look.
But I’m not making lifetime commitments to veganism.
Just listening to my body.
So Mom, what am I doing wrong?
