41 Hours of Gluttony
So, I just got back from 2 days in So. Cal. visiting my mother and eating entirely too much... It's just that there are no decent, authentic, Mexican food restaurants in Buffalo, and I was dying for some home-made food, and some food from my favorite Mexican restaurant, AND my favorite steak house, etc. Afterwhich I vowed to myself that I was going to take the 30 day vegetarian challenge. However, this mostly came as a consequence of visiting my favorite Mexican food chain restaurant, Green Burrito, and having the "mini" super nachos. Carnitas, mmmmmm.
Ok, so anyway. Having thought about the amount of animal protein I consumed, not to mention all the other badness, I began to think about how I really should start taking better care of myself. I had read Oprah's 21 Day Cleanse and had been tempted to try it out. Although, I know I couldn't do the caffeine part. I live on caffeine. So, I'll make some minor adjustments.
I also don't think I could go completely vegan. I can do soy instead of milk, so that's not a problem. I don't know how I would do without cheese. I may have to try some of the soy products and see. I am planning on following the PETA recs Vegetarian Starter Kit and be a more earth conscious eater.
So, we'll see how I do over the next month. I also challenged a friend to get in shape for a 5K in November. I should be able to run it by then. At least, I hope so.
Tomorrow back to the pedis. We'll see what the morning brings!
