I know every year it fails but this time I’m picking out things that I will be able to do… it still sounds typical but it’s practical for my standards.
So when the new year comes, I’m gonna become vegetarian for six months BUT only if my parents will allow it. I gave up meat and rice for Lent this year and my parents were concerned how I was losing weight and that I may have been lacking nutrition. I’m sure I took good care of myself though, Filipinos just don’t really like the idea of being “skinny”, my parents say it looks pitiful, which I can disagree. I took nutrition class so I have a good idea of how I can keep my nutrition in balance. I really didn’t have any problem with giving up meat and rice last Lent, I dedicated myself to Jesus which gave me strength and it was the first successful Lent I’ve ever had. So I thought if I was able to do it, I’ll do it again. I just hope my parents don’t stop me and force me to eat meat, rice, and fatten up. It felt really good to be healthy.
I think that’s why I constantly have to try being healthy and working off the food I eat. I can’t even relate to tumblr posts about wanting more food or feeling sad whenever they run out of food. I mean, I get sick of the food here cause it’s not even healthy, I eat it cause there’s nothing else. It’s a Filipino house with an unlimited supply of food, my parents always restock from Walmart and Costco every weekend and the cabinets are always full, good lawd. Back in high school whenever my friends would come over, my parents would ALWAYS offer them food and by the end of the year they gain a couple extra pounds. Gosh it’s so hard to stay in shape, I still haven’t fully recovered and I feel out of shape. Can’t wait to go vegetarian (pesco) next year, I clearly told my parents I won’t be eating much of the food we have so they’re going to buy me vegetarian/pesco products, yee.
Sorry if I made any of you guys jealous but if you’re ever hungry, feel free to come over and eat our food or as my friends say “take advantage of my family.”
Apparently, being exposed to the sun can boost your testosterone over 100%. Furthermore, exposing your genitals will boost it even more. I love summer :]
I had a doctor’s appointment today to review my blood test results. I thought it would just be normal but he said that it was better than normal and that I should keep doing what I’m doing. I hope I don’t sound like I’m bragging or anything, I’m just extremely happy and relieved with the results, GAH!! I was so close to giving up my vegetarian diet because I thought I wasn’t getting enough protein or iron but the doctor said I should keep up what I’m doing now so I’ll stick with it!
At the same time I feel like I made my parents proud and that I’m being a good role model for them. They both have high blood pressure and they recently started changing their diet to help relieve it. Ever since I started my vegetarian diet, they kind of followed me and I felt so good with the impact that I had on them. I pray for their health and well being.
I need to diet just to keep in shape, I even went vegetarian. At least it forces me to be healthy I guess.
I want a hamburger from In-n-Out…
