WAKE UP CALL!
Im turning 23 in august and I can’t believe how poorly I take care of myself. My one and only self and body. My home. I feed it processed foods constantly. Hormones through meat and dairy thats not meant for me, white sugar thats practically poison, inflammatory caffeine through energy drinks and coffee and not to mention artificial sweeteners. It scares me when I think about it, what all this is doing to my body and that I’ve let it go on for so long.. I may seem fine on the outside but lately I’ve been getting signs from the inside telling me that Im really not healthy. Constant stomach aches, headaches, fatigue, dizziness. That’s not how a 23 year old should feel. I should feel strong, healthy and wake up with energy in the morning to do things and experience everything life has to offer.
That is honestly my worst fear, missing out on life. I love food, but I love life more so It’s time to change.
I know and believe that a plantbased, mainly whole foods diet will do that for me. I’ve watched countless documentaries on the power of plants and is amazed and inspired by what other people have accomplished. Im going to start treating it properly with nutritious food that will nourish me and maximize my potential, and start seeing exercise as something fun that empowers and strengthens me.. not a punishment for eating too much chips or chocolate.
I mark this day, the 19th of february 2018 as the day I start loving myself. I am excited to be able to document this journey on here and look back at this one day when I’m at my best self. This is my year.
