Hello all! Just a little intro here and and a funny little story. I've been interested in vegetarianism for a long time, and have tried it a few times but didnt do much research on getting all the vitimins and stuff I need, blah blah. It happens I know. But I've reallly been learning about the benefits of this way of life. Not only for my health, but for the planet and animals. That wasn't my main reason before for wanting to do this, but the more I learn the more it makes me realize how I don't want to support the awful practices that go on just to make meat or anything. I'm a single mom, and I want to take control of my health for myself and my son. I'm alittle overweight and my blood pressure is so high my doc put me on meds. Also need meds for sleep problems, depression/anxiety. My little one is only 1, so I need to get it together. So guess what?
I'M DOING THE 30 DAY VEGAN CHALLENGE!!
Yep, I figure it wont hurt to try, since I have an ultimate goal of being mainly if not full vegan eventually.
I really think this is the jumpstart I need. I plan on trying to in general work on being a healthier, happier person who does her part to help my own health and the planet that my son will grow up on..
I started the Challenge today. I'm going to need some support too and I think I will find it here. I just started a new job as a waitress at a restaurant near where we are staying with family. It will have some tempations, but it's a great place to make money so for now I need it. (I wish I could find a veg restaurant near me to work!)
Anyway, sorry if I rambled! I'm a very chatty kathy lol!!!
Looking forward to making friends!!
