Happy new year to you all!

I took a trip down to ChinaTown for the Chinese luna new year festival for the first time ever ( well that i remember).

It was Red, it was loud, it was fun, it was beautiful and it was crowded.

 

The day started off with me and my sister rushing down to central London, because we were late to see the floats and dancing dragons. The moment we stepped out of the train station, we were met with wall of people also there for Chinese new year celebrations.

The crowds made it difficult to see much of anything but the beautiful decorations above made up for that.

The hunger got the better of us while we were swimming through the crowds, so I decided to check Happy Cow app and found an amazing restaurant that is not only Raw Vegan but also refined Sugar-free!

[ I was looking for a Vegan Chinese restaurant to keep up the vibe but the only one I found was in Dalston 😥 – will probably check that out on another day ]

It’s called Vantra Loungevity London

If you are interested in vegan food, definitely go check it out – it is right near M&M world and ChinaTown.

The atmosphere was amazing! Very family friendly. Everyone seemed happy and ready to party and they left the floats out at the end for us to enjoy.

Being the Year of the Dog, a lot of people brought their dogs to the event and I was planning to bring Duke, however I am glad I did not – Duke might have been trampled. Also I spotted another Shiba there and everyone was stopping this dog and grabbing him – I felt sorry for the shiba.

After a while my sister and I decided to go see the light show at 5.30pm, i thought maybe I could at least film this section and make a video out of the day … we found an amazing position, with full view of it all (so happy) and waited around 30-40 mins there to see the show only to have a tall security guard and people push in front and block our view. If you are short and you haven’t found a good place to stand – I do not recommend waiting for the light show, because you will not see it. ( not to be a Debbie downer haha but it is the truth )

I am so happy I decided to go regardless of how I may have made the experience sound because it was fun, and i’m glad my sister came with me, she was good company. – I would post the picture I took of her here but not sure if she’d want me to 😛

So you can have a picture of me instead :

The plan was to film the event but it was a bit much to enjoy and film so I just enjoyed.

I definitely recommend getting there in the morning, when they start , as many sections get closed off because of over crowding.

Best part of the day : Raw vegan food, decorations, and atmosphere.

So, I wanted to do a quick update on my sugar-free journey because I realise with recent events, that I have fallen off the bandwagon and haven’t explained anything to you, my sugar-free friends.

 

Going back to eating sugar has definitely resulted in my facial skin going back to looking bad and spotty, and the fat I lost during the challenge on my back and abdomen is slowly returning.

I really could go into a million excuses as to why and how but thats exactly what they are – just excuses.

So basically I did a month of being sugar free and it was amazing! I did it, it was easy and the results physically and mentally were amazing.

this is the video of me talking through my results with before and after pictures ^^

and heres me explaining why I done it :

This was only about 3months ago

and previous to that I did it for 90days.

But just like when I did it for 90 days –

I fell off the bandwagon and started eating sugar again.

It’s become increasingly hard to do, when outside of the challenge and behind closed doors, I can secretly fulfil cravings whenever I please. Where as when I am in the spotlight, I feel the stronger need to keep up the sugar -free life. I am in a constant battle with myself to stop eating sugar and it is extremely stressful.

I am currently working on a dream wall and a part of the dream wall, I am going to add a section all about the reasons why I am sugar-free so I can get up and read it every day and rewire my mind deeper so I can let go of these poisonous products. I thought that I could do this as easily as I became vegan…. but I have come to realise my relationship with sugar, is far deeply rooted then it was for me and animal products.

I wasn’t really a big fan of dairy or meat so going vegan, cold turkey, was easy to do, plus I hadn’t really eaten red meat since I was about 12 years old.

Sugar on the other hand is something I have eaten at high doses on a daily basis since I was born. As a teenager most of my meals were bags of chocolates or sweets, and my diet was never really monitored in my teenage years, eating chocolate and sweets was more encouraged.

The only solution I see here is to really jump into my self and understand my connection with sugar.

My friend, in one of her videos put it quite right :

” …Korea obviously has lots of junk food too, but I have no attachment , no sentimental attachment to the junk food …”

– Mimimina the Nuevist – Youtube

It is true – I eat a lot of things my mind has a deep set memory toward and connection to – my mind knows – this food is amazing and the second I see it, I get triggered.

It also doesn’t help the I live with my family and I look in the fridge or kitchen and there is snacks, bread, sugar everywhere.

I am going to take time to develop my relationship with fruits and vegetables and diminish my relationship with sugar.

I might even go as far as getting my own mini fridge so I can live with just looking at my own food for a while.

This is definitely something I am set on conquering and making a normal thing in my life just like being Vegan. I am accepting the fact that it may take some time for this to be normal for me, that there may be many ups and downs (lots of me falling off the bandwagon – but picking myself up quicker each time – without pressuring myself too hard) and that it will not be easy.

So I am starting my sugar-free journey up .. right now! 😛
