Today is Day 57 of my 70 day countdown to New Years and the new me. Today is the start of something new for me and something that I felt like the world was just "forcing" me to do, today is the start of me officially being a Vegetarian!
Last January First I made a choice to stop eating Red meat and only eat lean meats (Chicken, Turkey and Fish) as a way to get myself started on the road to a healthier me and I'm proud to say that as of New Years this year it will be one year since I have eaten read meat! However I have maintained eating other lean meats as a way to get my protein in but given recent events I have decided that the world is literally forcing me to become a Vegetarian and that is exactly what I'm about to do!!!
Now before I go ahead and divulge my reasoning's for making this choice let me first WARN all of you that if you are a visual person(as I am) or if you get grossed out easily or if you are a avid meat eater, you may not want to read further because Id hate to disgust anyone as I have been.
What I'm about to tell you was so gross it has literally convinced me to stop eating any type of animal!
So without further adieu... Last night like my activity feed stated I had Popeye's for the first time ever. Our friends came over we had a nice dinner there of Popeye's with lots of sides and I was there my eyes big as can be serving up my dish and all was well. I sat down to eat (just a side note I was starving since I normally eat dinner at 5pm and this time it was 7pm) as I bit into my delicious fried breaded chicken I felt something weird in my mouth and as I pulled it out I literally gagged in my mouth.. anyone wanna take a guess at what it was?? Well I will tell you, it was a fried, wrapped up in the batter and skin of my chicken a freaking FEATHER!!!
so freaking disgusting!!! Okay so I did my whole ewww that's gross thing and the whole I'm not eating this anymore and my husband and our friends where like come on Bri just eat a different piece... Okay so it smelled so yummy and good I just couldnt leave my other piece alone, so I picked it up and bit into it and this time I got a mouth full of yummy tendons and cartilage...
that's it I cant handle this! So I was fully disgusted and content having mac and cheese and pototes and corn for dinner!
Okay so flash forward to today, I had fully forgot about the incident and just decided that I wont eat Popeye's again. We are having a lunch to celebrate the holidays here at work, the bosses ordered chicken
Okay I thought, maybe I'm just being a baby so I will give it another try. I serve up my dish full of salad with a little pita bread and humus
I'm all ready to chow down, I even decided to give chicken another chance cause I was starving and it smelled AMAZING! Anyway so I go to bite into it and what do I pull out but a big ass long hair!!!
Meat! I am so over this! I am down to eat anything from the ground or grown from nature but I am so over the disgusting unsanitary meat industry and there lies to us! I am so grossed out and disgusted, I dont know if I will ever be able to eat meat again.. So now my new journey as a vegetarian begins! Anyone who is a vegetarian I would love tips on how to get my protein in because that is the only thing I worry about with my new life style choice!
Thanks for reading, hope I didnt scare anyone off the meat wagon or gross them out to badly. As far as everything else its going.. slowly, I allowed myself to eat Del Taco this AM for breakfast and indulge in some humus and pita bread for lunch
but I plan on hitting the gym tomorrow AM before my little guy and hubs wakes up and before the craziness of my weekend ensues! I'm a little scared about tom. I dont know how my body will handle the workout since I havnt worked out in two weeks but hey you gotta get back on the wagon some where and its better sooner than later!
Happy Holidays Everyone!! May you all have a safe and blessed weekend!
