I never been one to shy away from something new. A little over a year ago I did a 30 day cleansing (no fast food, no pop, etc.) and it worked out well. But I think after about 2 months I fell back into my unhealthy ways and my body paid for it. I gained weight and I started to get aches and pains more than ever before. On top of all this, I wasn't working out too. And it scared my wife... It scared me too, because I just turned 33 and for the first time in my life, I started to get VERY concerned about my well-being. Anyway, before the beginning of the year, I told my wife that I would go vegetarian for 30 days. (It wasn't a New Year Resolution or anything... Just felt it was a good starting point) I didn't actually start till this past Monday.
So I'm writing to tell you guys how the past week went. I decided to still eat diary products, but no fish, pork, beef, or chicken. (I felt like going without diary products or vegan would of been too much-for now) I initially thought that I would be hungry all the time... But I really haven't. I have been feeling very good. Like when I wake up in the morning, I noticed that I have more energy. I feel lighter, but haven't lost any weight yet. Don't get me wrong, I do get the urge to eat meat every now and then, but it's nothing too bad. I use to feel a little pain every now and then near where my heart is located but haven't felt it, since going vegetarian. And not to gross you guys out... Doing the #2, seems to be easier... Lol I just feel healthier. I'm interested in finding different vegetables and more recipes to try.
I will continue this and see how the next few weeks go and check in with you guys in a month. Hey you never know, depending on how I feel, I may make this a permanent thing.
