Last night I was supposed to be studying but somehow I ended up going back & reading all my old blog posts from like sophomore & junior year. It kinda made me sad because I actually enjoyed running then, like I forgot how much I loved it sophomore year because I've been kind of blinded by the louseyness of senior season. But it also made me really happy & motivated to get to that point again! So that was my motivation for today's run.

After studying all morning, I got out at about 2. planned for 4 miles. Due to lack of places to run in good ol Ephraim I went to the trail past the church that kameron showed me way back at the beginning of school. When I was almost to 2 miles I came to a turn off & decided to take it, since I never have before. It led up a hill & across the top then back down the other side, so I just kept following it. It was actually an immensely fun trail. I figured if it started going out too far I'd just cut back to the original trail. It started to wind back to the church but I ended up at someone's farm hahahah so I had to run across their property which was scary. I thought I was gonna get shot. ALSO I found the CUTEST little canal that was completely frozen over!! Cool!!  I wanna go ice skating. 

OH another thing to report. For the past 3ish weeks I've been eating only plant based foods in an effort to have more energy throughout the day. I think it really has helped me to have more energy & feel more healthy. I'm taking a break over Christmas so I can eat chocolate & stuff, but I'm not sure if I'll continue after Christmas. I'll keep you guys posted.

Iím glad that you love running again. Itís also good to know that youíre still alive after that attempted forced entry at your apartment.

On another note, isnít chocolate a plant-based food? I thought it came from a tree. :(

The plant based thing sounds really interesting to me, I've been tempted to lean that direction for a while but never got around to it. Is it worth it?

From Alli Peterson on Mon, Dec 11, 2017 at 17:02:05 from

It was definitely a challenge, but I found it to be worth it. I don't know how big the town you're living in is, but ephraims walmart did not carry a whole lot of vegan products, so I had to get kind of creative. I ended up mostly eating protein shakes, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches & salads. I would recommend trying it out for a little while to see how you feel, but I definitely felt healthier through my days & was more willing/excited to get out & run, lift, whatever.
