Alright; so I started this blog because as of April 10, 2011, I decided to become a vegan. Entirely because of health reasons, which I’ll get into in a different post if people care. xD  Anyway, the decision was because of my body, not so much because of animal activisim, though if I can help some mistreated livestock on the way that’s great too.  So far it has been going good – it was suggested to me about a week after I declared my veganism that I start a blog about it, and I’m not really one for blogging – I have literally no idea what to write here.  I don’t even read other people’s blogs usually – I just look at the pictures and sometimes reviews … But that’s about all.

So, what is the point of all this rambling?

Well, I was inspired to write today because I had my first physical in like, five years.  I remember I had to get one before going into my freshman year of college, and I’ve been to doctors since then, but none of them have done the basic, you know, eye test, hearing test, height, weight …

Well, the weight is where Ihad an issue.  I am overweight – I’ve always been a little overweight, and I’ve always been pretty alright with it because it wasn’t like, a crazy amount; aroud 50-60lbs, which is not good, but it’s not moving into morbidly obese territory.  I also don’t own a scale, so the only time I ever get weighed is at the doctor’s office.  Yeah, well my attitude changed today when the nurse said I weighed almost 100lbs more than I am supposed to for my height.

I nearly fell over.

Oh this will not do.

So, I’ve decided, since I’m starting a new job on Monday that’s only 29hrs/wk, I will have time to do other things, besides writing the novel I’ve been planning for probably forever, I’m going to start exercising.  So I have until Monday to figure out how that all is going to work.

I figured maybe I’d document diet and exercise stuff here, since I really want to do this as well.

Anyway … Yay for first blog post ever – let’s see if I actually post here regularly ^^;;
