14 day- Vegan Weight Loss? Challenge accepted!!



If you’ve been following my blog, instagram account or you personally know me, you know that I’m vegan (and damn proud to be one)… You might also have heard me talk about or read my post about High Carb Hannah and how I credit her for my success and inspiration to go vegan. (If you haven’t checked her out on youtube already, PLEASE DO… like now, well after you read this post ;)!)

It has been a year and 2 months now that I have been vegan, and High Carb Hannah has gone and inspired me again! After loosing 70lbs, acheiving her goal weight and body, she has come out with a new book called Lean & Clean. What is Lean & Clean? It’s a 14 day vegan weight loss guide, and so much more. It is full of amazing information (food, exercise and lifestyle), it’s  incredibly motivational & supportive, and includes beauty tips & tricks also!  When I found out it was out for sale, I HAD to buy myself a copy! She has already motivated me to acquire the lifestyle I always dreamed of having, and to this day have lost 30lbs from going vegan, so there was no doubt in my mind that this book was something I needed in my life.

So, since tomorrow is Monday and the book came out this weekend, I feel like it is only appropriate to start the 14 day vegan weight loss challenge tomorrow! I can’t wait to try out the new recipes as they look amazing. What I love most so far about the book is how personal it feels, it honestly feels like Hannah is coaching you one on one and that she really does care about your success.

My goal for these next two weeks is to workout/be active every day, but for AT LEAST 3 days out of the week I’d like to push my self HARD!! I’d also like to follow the meal plan as much as I can, or at least use it for motivation to create my own meals. I am hoping to loose 2-4lbs by the end of the two weeks, or at least feel better since Hannah’s taught me that it’s not all about what the scale says, it’s more about how the clothes fit and the measuring tape says!! Also, would like to have one treat day/meal where I don’t worry too much and don’t feel guilty about the food or non-exercising I do…

So, if you are in a slump, looking for motivation, looking for amazing support, and looking for the healthiest way to loose weight I highly HIGHLY suggest checking out Hannah’s new book. Coming across Hannah on youtube was the best thing that has ever happened to me, and maybe it will be for you too.

Wish me luck everyone, and I hope you guys join me & MANY others along this journey!!!

Much Love,

It’s been a year!!!



then2015 and now 2016.jpg

Today marks my 1st year anniversary since going vegan!!! Honestly, I’ve been so so SO excited about this, as if it were an anniversary with a significant other! Seriously… Maybe because in a way it’s an anniversary with the new me I met, a year ago, who I’ve grown to know and love so much! I’ve been enjoying my relationship with the new me very much!Print

Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I could make it this far since, I’m not very good at sticking to anything in my life… so maybe that’s another reason why I was so excited for this day! I’m not stopping any time soon. I can’t wait until I can say I’ve been vegan for 5 years, 10 years, ect!

Actually, I have something even more exciting then it being my vegan anniversary…. Well, last night my husband accidentally started playing this documentary called Food Choices. As soon as I realized what it was talking about I immediately got excited and joined him on the couch. He saw how excited I was about the documentary and decided to leave it playing… Well… to make this short… at the end of the documentary he turned to me and said, “Denise, I think I want to try it…”

“You want to try it!?”…  I was already crying from the film and being so happy to watch something like that the night before my anniversary… but then to hear that? I really didn’t think it was true. He couldn’t have meant what I thought he meant, could he?

“I want to cut out oil…. and fish for sure… I don’t want to fish anymore…” he said.

I interrupted, “And cows and pigs?”…

“And cows and pigs…” it was like he was talking dirty to me haha. I couldn’t believe my ears! I kept asking him the next day if he meant it and if he was really going to try. He reassured me that he wanted to try his best, he may not follow it 100% to a ‘T’ (is that how that expression is used?), but for now, trying is a whole lot better than not!!

So my 1st year anniversary turned out to be his first day vegan as well… He even texted me to tell me he stayed strong and said no to a KitKat bar! One of those special big KitKat bars even! Day 1 down, forever to go hah!

We’ll see how everything goes… I’m sure I will keep you posted. Hope you are all enjoying your week and the lovely fall colours and weather! It’s chilly, but perfect weather to cuddle up with the best throw you have and some good movies! Can’t wait for my next free weekend!

Much Love!
