Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: A Change Is Gonna Do Me Good!No, your not seeing things. That's not a card in the photo. That's my first attempt at making my own veggie burger :) I have been making a few changes in my life lately and this burger is a part of it. For many years I have been a vegetarian - eating eggs and cheese, but staying away from anything with a face or a mom. Well, my cholesterol levels have never made me happy and I began to worry that I was headed toward needing some type of medication at some point in my future. It seems that high cholesterol runs in my family and I decided it was time to do something healthy about it. So, I bought a copy of Dr. Esselstyn's book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and read it. Wow! I was incredibly impacted by the book and immediately decided that it was the program for me. So, for about a month now, I have adopted a vegan diet with no vegetable oil. It was hard to give up my olive oil - I was quite the addict. However, now that I am a month into it, I find that I really don't miss it! I am excited to continue to eat well and treat my body with respect. I will go back to the doctor in about 2 months to get blood work done again and that will be the true test - to see what the levels are. I will definitely keep you posted! I also began another change today - I did my first P90X workout! A girlfriend had purchased the exercise program and found that she didn't use it, so she lent it to me. Well, it sat gathering dust for a few months and I finally decided the time was right. I may be sore tomorrow, but I got through workout number 1 and I am ready to attack workout #2. Yes, I do believe, a change is gonna do me good! As the seasons change, what changes can you make for the better in your own life?
