Where’s the Beef

Today is day 16, one day past the halfway point for accomplishing my goal to ‘Not Eat Meat for a Month’ and it has been both easy and difficult. I have dieted before where I have left out carbs or sweets or a variety of other things that I have tried to stay away from and I have to say giving up meat is SO MUCH EASIER than trying to stay away from sweets. If I had to choose between a nice juicy perfectly cooked filet or a piece of heavenly chocolate cake then I would always choose the cake, hands down every single time. Of course right this moment as I am typing I am drooling on the keyboard thinking about the steak but that is because I haven’t had one in a few weeks so it is beside the point.

Anyways although I miss not having meat at dinner I am doing remarkably well and have not once even thought about cheating, well maybe once but I swear they put those little barbecue meat trucks out on the curb at 2:00 in the morning just to lure me with its sirens song. I almost jumped him but I did somehow restrain myself.

Only two more weeks until I reach my goal.

I don't think I could do it! Our dinners usually are made around the meat, I wouldn't know what to eat - and am not terribly fond of many bean dishes. Good going.
