So my transition into veganism has been amazing. Its been about a month now and ive loved every new discovery. About a week ago i went to a raw vegan resturant about in columbia sc called the good life cafe. Everything was delicious and also organic so that was also a huge plus. Sadly i live about an hour away from it so i cant frequent it. But at least its not that bad of a drive. There are also a few more vegan resturants there and in atlanta i want to visit in the next couple of months. Making my own food has been new and exciting as well because i have to be more creative, i feel, now with mixing things up more and getting a variety of nutrients. And ive started a food diary to track my habits. I initially started it to track my sugar intake, but its turned out to be helpful all around.
I have not been exercising like i want to because of weather and work. Ive been working so much im complely drained by the time i get home,or hurting. And the weather has been really cold and i have no heat so im hidng under my covers on my days off. I miss the sun. But i still go to belly dance practice weekly so its sufficing for now. Today ill probably do a bit of yoga because my back is screaming for it.
Ive been going to pagan meetups weekly as well. And monthly my church holds vespers that ive been lucky enough to attend the past two months in a row. Ive meet really nice people. Ive been trying out minfulness meditation throughout everyday life since i havent done much yoga lately, since i usually combing my yoga and meditation practice. Its hard but mind strenghthening.
I want to go to college soon,so i got the practice booklet for the test i have to take for placement since ive been out of school for a while. What ive learned is i dont remember math. At all but itll come back to me eventually. Ive been trying to sort out medical issues since i have a very good insurance policy and then run away from my job as fast as i can. Its mental and physical poison working there. I just feel a wave of exhaustion every time i walk in those doors and i dont want to put myself through it anymore. Ive been reading a couple of different books,the darkest minds series, thus spoke zarathustra, fun home, and a few others i have on my To Read Shelf. I finally finished merlin and immediatly regretted finishing it. I wasnt ready to let go. *dramatic mornful face*. But i have found a new love. Lost girl. Ive also been watchong old episodes of doctor who and catching up ona few other things. So this cold weather isnt all bad. Stay in bed and morn the death of one show and fill the hole in my heart with the other. Woots.
In all id say ive been pretty happy since my last personal. Things have been peaceful and i think everything is moving in a positive direction.
