I’m not a big meat eater. And by that, I mean, I choose not to eat it the majority of the time. But, I might do it if it was a holiday or if I was out and that was the best thing available to me. In fact, I mainly grew up on a vegetarian diet. However, I didn’t ever really think that I could be vegan because that would mean that I would have to give up lasagna, mac and cheese, and pretty much everything I love at Olive Garden.
Why the interest in going vegan in the first place? I’ll give you a bit of the backdrop here. One of the things that I love doing is taking on a challenge at least 8 times per year. I do that because I believe it keeps me focused on taking on fear and overcoming perceived obstacles in my life. It keeps me from easily slipping into an easy comfort zone.
I have also been told that changing to a vegan diet gives you more energy and I definitely wanted to try it out. Who doesn’t want more energy, right?
As with everything journey, there were some things that I learned.
Check them out here in this video:
Taking on a vegan journey is very much like many challenges in life. You have to make some changes that might be a surprise but ultimately, it is not as daunting as you might think. We all go through changes and I’m a big believer in practice. The more you practice making decisions, the better you become at them. The more you practice taking on challenges, the better you become at them.[bctt tweet=”The more you practice making decisions, the better you become at them.”]
I’m going to take on the 100 mile challenge soon. That is, I’m going to run 100 miles in 28 days.
What challenge will you take on to shake things up a bit?
