So far, this week has been (in a word), challenging. At the beginning of week 2, I visited some family for Easter dinner. While everyone else dined on salmon and chicken, I ate some healthy salads and vegetarian dishes. Because I had a hard time feeling full, the meat looked very appealing to me. It took every ounce of strength I had to turn down the meat. But, in the end, my resolve won out and I stuck with it.
For whatever reason, I did not think to purchase veggie burgers or meatless meat like they sell at Trader Joe’s. That would probably help with my frustration, because there is only so much tofu and quinoa a carnivore can eat in a 2 week period.
I am continuing to hold on, with about 1.5 weeks to go. In the interest of full disclosure, I have been enthusiastically looking forward to the juicy burger and fries I will have at the end of this challenge.
