Vegan Pledge Update - Day 10

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Good morning! I hope everything is having a great weekend emoticon

Today is Day 10 of my 30 day Vegan Pledge. I managed to survive staying on track since my husband and I went to settlement for the house on Wednesday. We have been taking down wall paper in the basement and then did some yard work yesterday. We have been going to Wendy's, Burger King and I survived that. I got salads without chicken or cheese. I ate baked potato from Wendy's and got onion rings from Burger King along with the salad.

Yesterday was a different story. I was STARVING by the time we finished things yesterday. We went to pizza hut. I was going to get my half of the pizza cheeseless with onions, green peppers and pineapples. That didn't happen. I got the chicken supreme and a side order of buffalo wings.

Well, it felt good going down BUT this morning for the first time in 23 days of not eating meat and almost 6 weeks of not having dairy products, I had sinus congestion in one nostril! There it's true! I know from research and reading that my body is thinking of certain foods as toxic and is trying to help me but it's just not worth it. I only had 1 slice of pizza and 5 wingettes. Not worth it at all!

I'm back on the wagon. Starting tomorrow, the contractors will take over the house over the next 3 weeks. The sellers paid for the major problems that failed the home inspection. This is a true blessing and I'll keep you all updated!

Have a great week if I am unable to sign in! Getting ready to go back to the house to put moth balls down. I have woods in the backyard and saw deers in my neighbors yard eating the other day. I plan to put flowers down that deers aren't attracted to, but the moth balls will help keep snakes away. Talk with you soon! are a few pictures of the house! It's a split foyer which is something I always wanted and dreamed of having. I wish I had more pictures but I do not at this time.

This is the basement with green wallpaper everywhere!

    Im glad to see that things are going well with the house!
Sounds like u are on track with getting out of your place because I remember you saying in the Spring that your goal was to be out of your place and into your new home by September. Yaaay!

Oh and Im sooo happy that you are doing well on the vegan challenge. After eating that meat I guess you had a real wakeup call.

Keep up the good work!

    Awesome looking house, Mel!!! Great! I can't wait to see what you end up doing with it. I think split level foyers are super cool, too. LOVE the back yard and how you can see deer! Very very nice :) And isn't it wild, how what we eat so directly affects our health. Thanks for pointing out the correlation! emoticon

    Oh Wow! It looks great! Good luck on finding something that the deer don't like... I've been looking for ever - they decimate our veg patch every year and eat everything else too including apples off the trees by standing on their hind legs. We have to buy hay for the ponies even in the spring and summer because the deer eat all the grass. It is such a privilege though to live somewhere where deer, badgers, foxes etc are a daily sight when so many people never actually see a real one.
Good going on the vegan food - your body is obviously telling you something there.

    Beautiful house! Good for you going vegan for 30 days. I used to be a vegetarian, but that changed soon after I met my husband. Keep up the great work!
