Too much oil and salt will do that to a person.
All the food felt slippery in my mouth...especially the fried won tons and veggie spring roll. I felt so heavy for the rest of the day. I never even felt hungry for dinner.
Now that we are on the final countdown, my mind drifts on new possible challenges beyond this vegan challenge.
I could focus on different aspects of the vegan diet. Like drink a green smoothie every day for 30 days. Or have two green meals a day. Or can I push this challenge longer?
Do I even want to? Hmmm...
Ever wonder if a night person can reprogram into a morning person? I have always wanted to change my body clock. Is this even possible or is this genetic trait? Will I forever be working against the natural inclination of my body? Like a fish forever swimming upstream?
I can see a major improvement in many areas, just by reprogramming the time I get up. I love to sleep in but it affects so many aspects of my life. I have to admit, this would be the hardest challenge of them all for me but if I could complete it, it would reap the most benefits.
I need to work on my swimming and I am still eyeballing that Masters swim class. I may do this for the month of February and combine the two challenges, since the Masters class is at 5am.
Discipline is a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it gets and if you don't use it, you lose it.
