Status update for my 30 day ab challenge and 2nd week into my vegetarian challenge. Well, you can definitely tell that this is not your average fitness blog, because I hate to break it to you, but my 30 day ab challenge has once again failed!!! I have no idea how people do these with normal lives?! I possibly lack the dedication, but there are many days where I wake up with the best intentions and then just as I am about to fall asleep “CRAP!” I forgot to do my ab challenge. I will not give up, but it may take me 60 days instead of 30.
However, on a more positive note, my vegetarian challenge is proving to be a bit more successful. I am finding lots of new recipes and things to try. My new obsession is Buffalo Fried Cauliflower. I also tried out Native Foods for the first time, and their taco salad…with fake taco meat, actually curbed my need for meat. I have been pleasantly surprised this entire week by how full I feel and that I have so many options to choose from.
I did have one mishap on my vegetarian journey. My Husband and I have finally found a roommate to live with to begin saving for a future downpayment on a house. My future roomie and I decided to explore Olde Town Arvada for an apartment complex that would serve all of our needs. After a long day of hunting, we decided to quench our thirst and feed our hungry bellies at Kline’s Beer Hall. I was beyond tempted to order one of their german sausages, but I refused to give into temptation and instead ordered their out of this world buffalo fried cauliflower and their potato salad. Halfway through the meal I began to wonder why the heck the potato salad was so freaking delicious, and then it hit me…. BACON!!! Now a good vegetarian would have probably stopped and just ate the cauliflower… but this is Lazy Lady Fitness we are talking about! I ate the rest of my bacon potato salad proudly. #SorryI’mnotSorry.
Now on to my vitamin B-12 experiment… how long does it take for these things to kick in? I am currently using the nature made brand. Does anyone have any experience with this one? Am I doing something wrong or do I need it to build up in my system? With all these veggies and vitamins in my body I thought I would feel more awake. I kid you not, I almost fell asleep at my desk today…Starbucks saved me.
In conclusion: 30 day challenges are hard work, but I am determined. Vegetarianism is actually pretty cool. Vitamin B-12 has yet to kick in and I am mildly disappointed. ALSO I NEED A BURGER…but I can wait.
