{ What's My Inspiration? }

Lose weight, get off all medications, feel heatlhy, be a strong advocate for my vegan lifestyle, live a long healthy life.  These are all good reasons that I have rededicated myself to a plant-based vegan lifestyle.  I am at one of the highest weights I have ever been and I just don't feel good (high blood pressure, osteoarthritis in both knees and my foot,etc).  When I became vegetarian - and then years later - vegan, I made a choice to live a cruelty-free life of compassion and intention.  That is still a major inspiration, but now I want to reap the extreme health benefits of this plant-based diet and get this body to a place where I feel good - body, mind and spirit.

Right now I am unemployed, so what better time to heal my body, heal my mind and get my act together?  Getting healthy, eating right, making good choices will be my full-time job right now.
I can also take this time to get back in the kitchen, making healthy vegan dishes and sharing them here on the blog.  I am excited for this time I have been given.  I am excited about the future.  I am excited about getting better and I am excited about finding the real me, the healthy me locked inside this big (for now) body.

And if I needed even more inspiration, I need to be here, be healthy and be present for my fur-kids (and I have a lot of them) and here are just a few.
