A new chapter in my life has begun. First, we finally moved to my step-dad’s ancestral home which has a very spacious kitchen and loads of cabinets that it inspired me to cook and bake again. We are just settling in, so it’s still a mess here and there. Also, the “new” house has big windows and is perfect for photographing foods, so let’s see.
And with these changes in our lives happened, there is also one thing that I
just change. JUST, meaning it’s been just a day since. A few days I go, I
noticed that my tummy is not getting smaller whatever I do with it. See, in May
21st 2010 my gall bladder was taken out because it’s not going to
work anyways. The stones “irritate” the hell out of my gall bladder that it
already “pouched” , so the surgeon decided to remove it and save me from any
more trouble. After that, I asked him if I need a special diet now that I don’t
have my gall bladder and he said there’s no need for a special diet and I just
have to resume with my regular eating pattern since I’m pregnant that time and
stones won’t bother me anymore. Came last year when one of nurse friend told me
that I should be more careful on what I eat because I don’t have something to
help me “store” the fat. Also I noticed that my metabolism go from lazy to
couch potato lazy. I have irregularities with my bowel movements and eating
oily foods made me “dunk” fast.
And now here’s the change I was telling you about. I decided to go on with
being a … VEGETARIAN. Not Vegan. It just means that I will feed on dairy and
eggs (Ovo-Lacto) but will no longer eat meat. Why? It’s not to lose weight. It’s
for health reason because I’m the kind of person who believes in what you don’t
know won’t hurt you. I’m scared that maybe I am sick and that I wont have more
time with my kids and being a single mom, I CANNOT RISK THAT.
So since yesterday, I removed meat from my diet and I told myself that maybe
one day I’ll let go of eggs too. But not butter, milk and cheese. Those are God’s
gift to man, so I cannot give them up.
I’m just praying that I will stick with this change for good because I don’t want
to declare my love for something then fail at it again. Just like everything
else in my life … including updating this beauty blog. Haha. Okay, in the next
coming days I’ll update and just to be honest, I already started on my entries.
Yehey for that!
Until next time. Love, Carla.
