So, I moved to Boston around 6 months ago, gave up my car and pretty much changed EVERYTHING! It was terrifying, but I am SOOO glad I did it.
I am working for a wonderful family. I am not cooking only vegan food for them. In fact, I cook meat for them. They are Muslim and they only eat Halal meat which definitely has a different energy than factory farmed meat. It's interesting... there was a time in my life where I would not have even considered cooking meat for a job. I appreciate that they source their meat so carefully. By the way, I will not engage in a debate or shaming me for cooking meat, so save your breath if you feel the need to lecture me ;-)
One thing I have realized over the past year is that life is too short to engage in drama of any kind. I want happiness and peace in my life and that is what I am creating.
So, weight loss udpate. I have lost 65 lbs since I moved! How cool is that? I walk all over and work on my feet, but frankly, I think most of the weight loss has happened because I have let go of so much bullshit emotionally. If you guys knew how much internal work I've been doing on myself over the past 4 years... well... it's been intense, but I'm finally reaping the rewards. Big time. I feel like a completely different person.
I have had so many new experiences and met a lot of people and basically opened my life up to possibilities I never knew existed. Oh.. and I met a boy. Well, a man. :-) He's a total foodie and I've introduced him to Raw Kale Salads and other yummy food and he actually cooks for me too. He made the BEST Chana Masala .. a man with a stocked kitchen and cardamom in the cupboard. Yes please :-)
Life is good. I'm making friends and having new experiences on an almost weekly basis.
Me at work.
