I have recently become vegetarian, yes I know again. I have done this once  before in the Summer and when it started to get cold again I was craving comfort foods so I went back to my previous eating habits.  With the coming of the new year I wasn’t feeling very well and through Tweets my   Beach Body Coach shared with her followers that she was doing the Daniel Fast. This got me thinking about cutting out dairy, meat and sugar. It made a lot of sense to me, because with the Holidays I had begun eating deserts every night and bread at every meal.  During the period when I was eating a lot of sugar (nightly in a delicious creation) I would have CRAZY dreams. Dreams that made no sense and were more like a Tim Burton movie then I was prepared to have in my mind.

Now I like Tim Burton movies as much as the next person, but I don’t enjoy it nearly as much when my consciousness takes me on this wild ride and I wake up just as tired as when I fell into bed the night before.  Eating the bed products at every meal wasn’t doing me any good either. I love bread and I have grown to love homemade Gluten Free bread just as much. I was so bloated from this unhealthy diet that no matter how hard I worked out I wasn’t going anywhere on the scale and I was not having an easier time of buttoning my pants.

This is really how I felt, and you didn’t have to scare me to get me to this size.

After a week following the Daniel Fast which had cut out sugar, all breads, yeast, and processed foods I started to feel less bloated and was no longer lethargic and was beginning to see and feel like I was losing weight. It has been 5 weeks since I started the fast and 2 weeks post fast and I have stayed off the breads. I did try to eat processed foods, but have decided to stay off them because of the toxic smells my body omits when eating them and have once again discovered that I am allergic to sugar. (My mouth gets completely raw and lips get so dry there is nothing that satisfies them).

I am starting to read

This is as part of my final speech that I will hopefully be completing next week, as soon as I complete this speech which will be video taped I will post it to share with you. Hopefully my nervousness does not show on camera;)

Also if you noticed I have a new Page called Beach Body, this is because I recently decided to become and Independent Coach. If you have any questions free to contact me.

Wishing you Healthy days and non-Alice In Wonderland Dreams,

Penny Lane
