So it is OFFISH I have been plant munching for two years now, if I am honest it feels like way longer but I am very blessed to be on this journey. Being vegan has its ups and downs but so does life, I have nothing but good things to say about the lifestyle I have chosen to live. Its exciting, fulfilling and a big life enhancement and I would never change it for the world.
Check out my video on the YT just a recap on my two years of being vegan, stay tuned for lots more videos on food, health, fitness and anything else I want to share about my world.
Don’t just live in your world OWN IT!!!
Okay lets get straight to it this ISH is crazy I am not even going to lie!!!
I don’t even know where to begin this picture above provokes all types of thoughts and feelings.
Being on the bigger side for my teenage years and most of my twenties I wouldn’t say was the worst thing ever but it did cause obstacles for me. I have always had confidence and known how to present myself no problem, but being in a body you’re not 100% happy with isn’t good. Hiding you arms, covering your legs and dreading wearing a bikini in summer is not the way to be living life. Feeling like you can’t wear revealing clothing if you chose to and feel sexy or that your body wouldn’t be appealing to a man.When you live life full of boundaries and limitations you stop yourself from experiencing to your full potential.
When I look at that picture of me on the beach in my bikini in Jamaica I find it very hard to believe what my eyes are seeing. At the time I remember feeling pretty alright in my bikini that day and although I did attract a man lol, point being is that I know I wasn’t 100% happy with what I saw. It is a very emotional thing to look at a picture of yourself firstly not recognize that person and secondly just be in complete shock. I always knew I was a bigger lady but at the time I never saw myself how see myself now looking back. Its like someone went and photo shopped all of my pictures!!
So January 2015 will mark two years since I first started my healthier and fitter lifestyle. I not only decided to change the way I looked at food, treated my body, but also the way I thought mentally a long with my approach to life. I wanted to be more open, laid back and inspirational it was my mission to achieve succeed and be able to share my experiences. I am no where near finished or done in my journey but I am damn sure proud of myself for how far I have come.
I am just an example of whatever you want it is yours for the taking, take both hands and grab it just do NOT let go!!!
Till next time keep it moving!!
Hey y’all hope you are all enjoying the late summer sunshine…..
