Okay, one full week being vegetarian. I have been doing my darnedest to NOT fall into the carb/junk food trap. But I haven't been that successful on that yet. I managed to have pizza 3 times! UGH! I didn't even eat pizza that much NOT being a vegetarian. Go figure. But I did have my first Falafel, and am attempting to try new things. I have tried at least one new recipe! And have several set aside to make soon.
I am down 3 pounds so far. I still feel fat and miserable. but maybe that's just my girlie stuff talking. I need to get exercise in for sure! Been busy, lazy, and feeling really off the last week or so. It's becoming very nice outside, so I wanted to at least start walking again. I ALMOST walked this morning, but period started and kind of landed me in bed longer than I meant to. Stupid body! So, with the way I am feeling, I really probably do need to watch the "carbs" a bit more and make sure I get more veggies in. One more day of stupid anitbiotics for my infection.... maybe I'll get a more normal taste and feeling back in my mouth. how come medicines make you have a bad taste in your mouth?
So with the past week I have had, not too bad. Lessons learned from this week:
- My ban on pizza should remain in place! But might not be a bad choice in case of emergency.
- I need to actually work out more. At least walk, or use the 10 minute work outs on Netflix... or use one of my videos I have a plethora of! It's lack of actually following through and occasionally time and not lack of resources.
- MORE VEGGIES and Fruit!! I have gotten quite a few in, but more fresh snacky fruits or veggies would be very good to have.
- Learned that so far this isn't helping my body and my pains so far. But it has been referenced to me in the past to lay off the dairy. I LOVE cheese, so this will make it difficult.
- Eating out vegetarian style is interesting. I did try Mediteranian food this week.
So, Always looking for new recipes to try, if anyone has good vegetarian recipes to try.

Day 2.. so far so good. I think I"m more worried about over eating than missing meat at this point! Luckily for me, I do adore tomatoes, green peppers, broccoli, and various fruits! I did over eat my calorie range about 250 today. But I blame the pizza. I got a cheese pizza with Tomatoes, onions, and green peppers and ate two pieces. I forgot that pizza is like 300 calories a piece, even with mainly veggies ;) I wish I liked the thin crust better.
I have some recipes I still want to try; so, I'm still ready. I have had a couple friends share concern that I won't eat right, at least to the point where I won't get what I need, like protein or sugars and fiber. I'm trying to not eat sweet things, but i keep craving cookies! I'm not worried about missing other elements in my diet. I already have some recipes in mind that have plenty of protein and fiber, and a few new Quinoa recipes I can't wait to try! (that is high protein and fiber!) Maybe I'll take the left over pizza to my Boyfriend's house tomorrow night or make my quinoa recipe and take it! I think he's supportive, but we haven't seen him since I started this yet. He was at least encouraging me over text messages yesterday about not eating meat if I ate anything. Considering yesterday was Ash Wednesday, I was supposed to fast; but i can't take my herbs and meds without food. If i do, i get sick.
So, I'll try to check in more often during this experiment! So, If i can be diligent, then I'll be good with this and hopefully I will see and feel results. And for the record, starting weight for this experiment: 212.8 That's pretty bad for me! hopefully I will do right with this and start to feel better and lose weight.

I knew there was a very very good reason I try very hard NOT to eat certain foods anymore... and I was reminded very well yesterday as to WHY i don't eat doritos anymore. As much as I do love them and find them yummy odd treats, they often trigger downward spirals into binging or just over eating in general. Yesterday, when I was babysitting my friend's son, I came across doritos in their cupboard and shared them with her son. So i kept eating, and eating... and eating them! ugh! When i got home, i was still on a weird binging streak, and i proceeded to eat various other items... i was also craving tacos... i should ahve just GOT the freakin tacos. I ended up still getting tacos way later in the evening.
Yesterday was also a reminder of why I actually eat certain foods when i crave certain foods, to avoid binging! Ugh! I did at least put everything in the food tracker, and wasn't as bad as I thought but still pretty bad and very much over my range.
At least today, I was much better on track, and ate a huge salad which was VERY yummy and tried a new very good recipe for Quinoa! So the worst things I hate today was ONE donut and a couple of cookies I made yesterday (which really weren't that bad). Donuts are not a trigger food for me, but often trigger my blood sugar to react badly and make me crash.
I know this was just a weird rant, but Trigger foods are dangerous and I was just sharing my thoughts and my folly! AT LEAST it only happened for ONE day! Today was much more controlled! And I bought veggies and fruits today for a good price, and i do have my quinoa dish leftover to enjoy tomorrow! :)
Back to my Doctor Who episode and enjoying my glass of milk!
