I really need to learn to not make impulse decisions when it comes to food. I didn’t think this thing out all too well. Tuesday night, I found myself walking down the food aisles at Target trying to find something, anything, I could eat (that wasn’t fish). I came out with spaghetti sauce and mushrooms (I had noodles at home). I didn’t eat it though. I also found some organic instant mac n cheese which seemed right up my alley on simplicity. After two bites (that is literally a portion size, 2 bites), I was starving and was browsing every corner of my pantry for food. Hello Fritos. Half of that bag is gone. Ok, 3/4 of it is gone. I am struggling with finding that common medium of going vegetarian AND eating clean. So far, it’s not good.
Wednesday was a pretty decent day. Normal breakfast, and I went to McAlisters for lunch. I had the taco salad with the veggie chili. It has beans, but it wasn’t bad, couldn’t taste them. In fact, it was quite tasty. I never would have tried it if I wasn’t doing this whole vegetarian thing. And it was less calories. Dinner I went back to fish. I was tired and I could have eaten cardboard and I wouldn’t have noticed a difference.
It’s already Thursday. I think I will be ok on this whole diet. My only challenge is balancing no meat with healthy options. I’m working on it.
