Day 1 (:

Yay! Today's shopping trip was great! I got so many different fruits and veggies and healthy food. Its all still a learning process, even though I had to prepared a list to shop, I still had to google things at the grocery store. I honestly feel so much better, even after one day... along with doing the Vegan Pledge, I am also quitting smoking.  Both kinds,  tobacco and weed. I want to see what clean, healthy living will do for my body, mainly, my eating disorder & my cyst I get on my Ovary. The hardest part for me has been not being able to have salt. I loooove salt. But, I have successfully not used it at all today. Haha.

My eating disorder today, has been mild. I screwed my thoughts up though briefly because I weighed myself.  Scales are my enemy... but I just told myself that I have eaten clean, and there is no reason to fret about my weight.

Join me in my pledge!  (:



Vegan huh?

I seriously am one of the most unhealthest eaters around, lol. I love sugar, so naturally I loveeee junk food, & soda.. but, I have been wanting to eat healthier for a very long time, and for many reasons.

One night I decided to watch 'Food Inc.', unknowingly about to change my life forever.. As I was watching, and reading the facts about how the animals are treated, and what goes into "raising" the animals I literally was repulsed. I couldn't believe what I was learning about the food the average person consumes daily... and then.. what reaaaally disgusted me, was the fact that this stuff called 'pink slime' or as they called it a "meat filler" has AMMONIA in it. Ummmmm excuse me... but I do NOT want to consume that crap!!  A few days after that, while folding laundry, I was watching 'Tia & Tamera'. Tia Mowry is a vegan, and she talked about it on the show.. then an episode came on where Tia did a photoshoot with 'PETA' & after that episode I continuously made mental notes to do research on Veganism. While researching I found this pledge at It is a 30 day pledge, where you are Vegan for thirty days. In that moment, I decided what day I was going to start. March 6th, 2014, it was a couple weeks away, so I had enough time to prepare a grocery list,  & google any questions I had.

My Reasons?

When I was 12, I was diagnosed with Ovary cancer in my right ovary, after chemo, and surgery to remove my ovary & the tumor I began getting cysts on my left ovary. Now, on average I will have one every four months. I'm lucky if I go six months without one..

Also, I have been battling Bulimia, and Anorexia since my freshman year of highschool in 2005.  I am over losing the battle to my eating disorder, I just want to feel good about my body, & what I am eating..

Over the next thirty days,  I am going document how I am feeling, & the difference between how I use to eat, & Vegan eating. I am hoping that this will help keep the cysts to a minimum,  & help me also, finally start to win my battle with my eating disorders.

Going vegan isn't just a 30 day thing for me, if all goes as planned, I will be making this my lifestyle.

So, I will leave you with this,

Have you ever considered going Vegan? Maybe,  you should! (:

I will also be doing video-blogs 2-3 times a week! & plentyyyyy of pictures soooo stay tuned!
