I thought that eating vegetarian would be the hard part. I actually really loved it. I did slip and have a few tamales and a hot dog when we were out and there was nothing else at the "hot dog dinner" and I was about to pass out from hunger.
Usually when I planned ahead, it all worked out. What I found is that when I added back in red meat a the end of 30 days, I felt sick again. I'm not saying I will never eat meat again, but I do know that I won't be eating it every day. I'll stick with fish and all that other healthy stuff. I haven't tried pork chops yet, but I am thinking about making some pulled pork today for dinner, so we will see how that goes. (Update: It's cold and I am getting sick, so I am having chicken and dumplings!)
It was a HUGE undertaking, and I am sad to report, that it is not done. Once Abs had her issue crop up, I had to put cleaning on the back burner and focus more on her. I did make a HUGE difference. I can get into the garage from both sides, put in some shelves, and took over 6 carloads of stuff to the thrift store. I moved piles of crap from one side to the other. My mom will be coming at the end of the month to take Em to Japan and Okinawa for two weeks--her life is soooo rough--and I am passing on a lot of scrapbooking stuff to her, plus all the other "treasures" that she passed on to me, that I just can't deal with right now.
So what's in store for October???
I'll still be working on the garage. It's already the 10th, so I can't say that I will blog every day.
October will be lame. I'll continue working on getting Abs sleeping through the night, Junior potty trained, and continue going to crossfit 4 times a week.
On the bright side, we are over 2 months into this deployment, but we unfortunately still have plenty of months left to get things done.
