Eating Vegan - Mamavation Monday

Hello all! Was thinking over the weekend that I'm gonna start cutting out the meat (not completely tho) cuz I do tend to eat too much of them. So I was looking at some recipes and found so many of them sounding good. I'm hoping it will be good as y'all know I'm very picky when it comes to fruits and veggies. I even wanna try a green smoothie. A smoothie with a couple of fruits then add some spinach in it. I hate spinach but from what I hear, you don't really taste it. We'll see if that's true or not. I do know that when my gram makes her stuffing for the turkey, she blends her carrots, celery & onions along with bread and eggs. I don't like onions when they're in bits but I LOVE her stuffing. Why? Cuz its been blended so fine that there's no bits for me to bite into. So if I have no problem with eating the onions that way, I just might have no problem drinking that smoothie.

Today was my weigh-in. I didn't lose any weight again (338lbs)! Not sure why but I'm guessing it's cuz I've been swollen since Saturday. My feet and legs are double the size. Yuck! I might have to take a rest today but I need to get to 10,000 steps. Been doing that since Friday. I gotta keep up with that. *smiles* Maybe I can just walk in place while watching tv for awhile. I do know I'll be going shopping later so I don't wanna overdo myself & not be able to walk tomorrow. There have been days when I can't even walk cuz of the pain. I think it's all from the accident few months ago. Sighs. So I know I really can't overdo myself which is why I hadn't been using my wii. I miss using it. :( Better to be safe than sorry. Ok, gonna try and move a little. I did take my son up to the bus stop. Finally, it stopped raining! All week last week, I had to drive up to the stop. But today, we got to walk up. Whoo hoo! Plus, it's supposed to be nice this week so gonna keep taking him up. So take care and have a great day! Don't forget to keep drinking your water!

  1. You can do it mama! I hope you start feeling better soon!

    I think you'll LOVE the green smoothie :) Let us know how it goes!


  2. Have you ever heard the term "flexitarian" where there are no hardfast rules of what you consume but it is mostly vegetarian/vegan if you want with some animal products every so often. It could be an option.

    Be gentle with yourself if you are in pain. Would walking in a pool be better if that is an option for you? Have a great week, I hope you meet your goals over the next 7 days.

  3. you can do this!!! We can do this!!

  4. Head up my dear! keep on swimming! Baby steps!

  5. I was just thinking the same as Kia, can you get to a pool to do some of your walking? if so you might find it really helps. I hope this week is better for you. Keep working toward your goals. You can do it!!
