So I did it...one whole month being a vegetarian. I've been a veggie before and for a lot longer, so it wasn't a big deal. But it was something. It was a challenge and I finished it. I learned new recipes, tried a variety of foods, and I had to really think about my food consumption.
The whole thing got me thinking about challenges, trying new things, and not backing down. It's such a small task to deprive yourself of something familiar but it feels great to come out the other side triumphant. It doesn't matter if you're leaving meat out of your diet, cutting out coffee, quiting smoking, or biking to work instead of driving a car. Setting goals and accomplishing them feels awesome.
This past New Years Eve I declared it would be 'my year' and with fall, and eventually winter, approaching I'm thinking about that declaration. I have three and a half months to finish those things on my life 'to do' list for the year. And there are some food goals on there too! I'll be in touch.
