You’ll be pleased to know, or not that bothered, that I’m still going strong and have been meatless now for 16 days!
To be honest I’m still not finding it too difficult and this weekend was my biggest test so far.
I was away for my friends hen do so was away for the weekend with little control over how we were going to eat. There was another ‘proper’ vegetarian on the hen do which made it easier. I had homemade veggie curry, which she’d made on Friday, full cooked brekkie in the mornings and an Italian meal on Saturday night. I was very well catered for, especially at breakfast but I’m beginning to notice how little vegetarian choice there is on restaurant menus.
When I got home on Sunday I was treated to an all you can eat Chinese buffet, perfect to cure the mini hangover I had. I actually feel worse today, I’m not sure if that’s an age thing or whether I was just still drunk yesterday!
I really fancied eating everything animal related on both days, especially Sunday ‘cause I could see how yummy everything looked and being able to pick loads of nibbley bits to eat is my favourite type of meal! I must’ve looked really strange just getting the sauce and a couple of mushrooms and completely avoiding the chicken to go on top of my rice but I persevered and I’m still on the right track!
A few people have asked me why I’m still bothering.
Mr C fell before the 1st hurdle so is completely out of the running, I’m not that bothered about the money and I’m pretty sure I won’t get much bragging out of it either. People go without meat all the time for loads of different reasons so it’s not a ground breaking challenge!
I think it’s more than the bet now.
Recently I’ve struggled sticking to anything.
My willpower had vanished. Not just with food or eating healthier but having any sort of staying power with any task!
I just kept giving up too easily.
With this challenge, no matter how pointless it is or how daft the reason I started it, I’m managing to not give up.
I seem to have found my willpower again and I want to be able to say I could do it, that I actually managed to stick to something for longer than a day and it wasn’t that difficult, that I started something, stuck to it and finished it!
Hopefully by the end of September I can prove to myself I can keep stuff up if I put my mind to it.
It might give me the kick start to see some other stuff I want to do through to the end!
Only 14 more days to go.
