Happy International Vegetarian Day
It’s finally autumn and the weather is perfect for running and playing outdoors. To celebrate the changing season, October’s month of vegetarian love and to celebrate myself, I’ve signed up to participate in the Vegan Booty 31 day HallowLEAN challenge. The initiative is simple – exercising at least 30 minutes a day, everyday.
This is what I’m aiming for….
Hey guys you’ve gotta aim high. The biggest problem is time, isn’t it always? I expect that the facebook group will offer support, encouragement and probably a ribbing too if I fail to post my workout. And there’s still time to join up if you’d like to look back on this month as one of progress and achievement.
To show how serious I am, I got a body analysis at the gym which reveals (to my dismay) my measurements compared to the ideal measurements for someone my height. I don’t take this too seriously, because I’d be in the corner weeping if I did, but I think it’s good to have concrete figures to look back on when I’m svelte. And that’s the point for me, to build muscle.
You may wonder how it’s possible to be curvy on a vegan diet. I do too. I was a more circular shape as a teenager and I can only guess that my body is less forgiving than I have been. I don’t diet but I do workout regularly. I mean, I just ran a marathon a few weeks ago and failed to loose a pound!
I’m going to take this seriously and give it a good shot.
I’m keeping a diary of my activities and planning on sharing some pictures and my final scan once the month is over. Wish me luck!
