Cheaper Than Therapy.

I haven’t posted in 5 months.

A lot has happened in that time.

The important things: I graduated University, and then I got married! (Both great things that make me very happy)

 

But, since I stopped writing my weight loss progress has come to a screeching halt, and recently regressed substantially.

I feel like I’m at the cusp of depression and I don’t know how to snap out of it.

My head feels full of nothing and I try to find fulfillment in food.

 

A podcast I listen to refers to junk food as a drug which our brain is not capable of handling. The refined fats, sugars, and massive salt levels give our brain and body this rush which acts like a chemical addiction.

And that’s how it feels.

So, my goals moving forward:

– Exercise daily (even the small stuff counts).  Instead of sitting around waiting to feel better I’m going to start taking walks.  Maybe runs, but I want to smart small and make sustainable changes.

– Shift diet to include more raw vegan foods.  I have made one major step forward despite the general setbacks, which is that I am cooking all my meals, and eating restaurant food much less. But I still eat mostly meat and carbs (potatoes, rice, bread).  I want to shift my diet to include in large part raw vegan meals.  If I can do a vegetarian breakfast, a raw vegan lunch, and a standard dinner I’ll be improving my nutrition immensely.  Again, instead of doing a major paradigm shift I want to take small, attainable steps.

Anyway that’s all I can muster for now.  As per my introduction I have a lot to write about from the last 5 months.  I just have to clear my head first.

  1. First of all, congratulations on being a newlywed and on graduating!!! Yes, food is totally a drug and it’s incredibly difficult to go through self-rehab. Good luck on your health endeavors and keep blogging!
