Hey all! Sorry I've been MIA lately. I've been ridiculously busy, and when I wasn't so busy, I was dealing with my emotions and such. Detox from this pill has been just awful. So today I started taking the Evening Primrose Oil pills again. We'll see how it goes. I've still been including the hemp protein powder in my smoothies, which I've only missed two days this week (but I've made them twice on two days, so I'm good. Haha!), and I think that's been doing me some good. My hair loss seemed like it was slowing down, but now it's out of control again. I swear I won't have any hair soon. It's really not cool. Vain of me, but seriously. I'm used to having my hair on my head. Other hair could fall off my body, if you catch my drift. That would be nice. Haha.

Other than that, things have been the same. I've been eating more fat than normal, and I can feel it in my skin, see it in my belly, and notice it during my period. My cramps are a bit worse than normal right now. So I'm going to really focus again on eating lower fat. We made this really amazing potato salad using the Vegenaise stuff. It was incredible but totally full of fat. And I eat corn tortilla chips with everything - salsa, hummus (more fat), etc. We also made a taco salad the other night. More corn tortilla chips, plus beans, olives, and this vegan "sour cream" that I didn't really want to eat in the first place, but my husband bought it. Won't be eating it again. So yeah. I need to take it easy on the fat! It'll only help me in every single way in the end.

Limiting the fat isn't a way for me to restrict foods. I love everything I eat. I eat what I love. So if there is something I'm wanting, I'll probably have it. But a lot of the time the fatty foods come from when my husband pulls the hummus out after work or when he makes a dish with a lot of oil or something. I've mentioned this to him, and we're going to work on it. For my body's sake. I think that's reasonable.

How have you all been? I miss writing in here. I don't miss detailing my day's worth of food, but I miss making videos and writing some positive messages. Let me know what's been going on! <3

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Hey! I've been vegetarian for about a year and a half, with stints of vegan. I was having the hair/nail problem too, and about two months ago I started taking Silica plus by Kal. They're vegetarian capsules that have done wonders for my hair & nails - they're stronger and growing. It's also much less scary than Biotin (cod by-product). I'm also going to a Chinese medicine guru this week to see what minerals I'm lacking (fearful of B12 & Iron). Good luck balancing!

I have to take it easy on the fat, too! I eat a TON of hummus... and vegan potato salad lately... & nut butters. =\ feel like I'm gaining weight back that I lost.

Namaste - Thanks for your suggestion!! I'll definitely have to look into that. My nails are actually really good. Better now that I'm doing the green smoothie thing. It's just.. my hair won't stop falling out! Let me know what your Chinese medicine guru says. I need to find a good natural doctor around here.

Nikki - I've put 4 lbs back on. It doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm very short, and there's only so much room for it. It's easy for me to tell. Josh thinks I'm nuts when I complain about seeing more fat, but I feel it now. Boooooo. So I'm watching it on the fat. Still eating it. Just being a little more careful. Good luck!
