“What matters most is your overall way of living and eating. If you indulge yourself one day, then eat healthier the next. If you forget to exercise or meditate one day, do more the next. You get the idea. It’s a very compassionate approach.” (26) Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World by Kathy Freston
Returning to college after a month of free time at home creates some challenges. As I try to become more involved at school, my little pink agenda fills up very quickly. And what gets cut? Exercise.
Luckily, my conversion to a vegetarian coincided with my sudden decrease in exercise, so I did not gain any weight (as far as I can tell – I don’t keep a scale in my dorm room). I definitely lost most of the tone and definition I had worked so hard on for months – how did it all vanish so quickly?? But I started exercising again these past few days, and I feel a lot better. Now to just keep it up.
