Day 22

Wow.  A week to go!  Next weekend I will be eating Turkey...and maybe bacon.

Little sad tonight and not gonna lie.  I had some pudding during an emotional moment or two.  Long story short, this man died and his dog needs a home.  I went yesterday, moved by the story to see the dog who is wonderful.  However he needs more then I can give him.  It's hard to think about that.  Am I willing to give up working late, going out after work or having that freedom?  For a very long time I had Maggie, my previous dog who die last year.  I loved her dearly but there were times when I wish I could have gone out after work and not had to run home. Or run away for a weekend without trying to find a dog sitter.  The last year has been kind of nice that way.  So tonight I had to call and let poor Don down.  I let him know that I felt like I couldn't give the dog what he needs in his last years.  Then I started to think about what kind of life I'm going to have in my last years.  Fuckin deep shit.

So today there was a meeting downstairs and the leftovers were sent up to us.  I was good and had some veggie pasta but I wanted to that that pan of meat lasagna home and make sweet love to it.  In the dark of course.  No one wants to see that. 

Little sad tonight but bleaching helped.

Day 21

I suck.  I'm getting a dog for the weekend...well, I'm test driving a dog this weekend so I've been busy nesting and trying to clean up.  Not that my house is dirty, it's just messy.  My pants that I don't like to wear are all over the place and there was part of me that really wanted to do a deep clean and paint this weekend.  Not so much now but still, should be good.

Tomorrow everyone is getting Mac Donalds again.  (That's right Shaun!)  I will just have to sniff the smells and hope someone gets me a fountain diet coke with a little extra ice, not to much but more then usual.  That would be nice.  ;-)

Little scared about adding to my family of two but I really hope it goes ok.  PS, Fred was on the kitchen counter and it was not clean.  Friggin cat.  Lets just add to this...arg.

Day 20

10 more days!

I am very tired and have been putting out a few fires tonight so this will be short.  By fires I mean shaving.

I had egg salad again anyone within 2 miles can smell.

Tomorrow I will blog the shit out of this thing!

Day 19

Cat on a roof.  That's what I woke up to at 630.  My useless cat was on my roof jumping from my house to the neighbours.  I have no idea where this cat gets his energy.  Wait, maybe it's the can of chicken dinner I opened up for him.  I also got to come home to him trapped in his collar and freaked out.

Today was a good day for food.  Well, there was an issue.  I was running late, you know cat on the roof and all so I got an Egg Mc Muffin.  I asked for no meat.  Just egg and cheese.  Well, I get to work and it has ham on it.  I was so hungry.  I didn't want to cheat so I gave the ham to my co-worker then ate the rest.  Yes I'm sure I hate some ham juice in me (HA! Dirty) but I don't think it was cheating.  Trust me if I was cheating I would be dry humping a hot dog cart while eating ribs waiting for my hot dog to cook.  Wow, that would be good.

I have to tend to my cat...who is still upset.  I'm such a lesbian.

Day 18

My facebook status.  Trying to figure out a way to make sweet love to my new toaster oven.  Greatest purchase of the year! 

Amazing!  I don't know how I lived with the sad little one my mother got me a few years ago.  This beautiful one is clean, a good size and had many settings.  Best 40 dollars I've ever spent.  I reheated part of a squash and it was great!  I added some rice and brussel sprouts and had a real dinner.  There is a special person out there in her warm wool socks who seems to think I could go 30 days without making real food.  I think I kinda did it tonight!  To her I say, see you Thursday!

Today wasn't bad.  I've had a lot of rice today for some reason.  I was going to have beans but beans and brussel sprouts would not go well together.  I pictured my boss having to add to my file "complaint from several co-workers about rancid ass smell at reception causing inability to work or focus on simple tasks."  I don't think they would call an "ass day" instead of a snow day but who knows.  It is social services.

I'm semi starting to worry about my cat.  I wonder if this makes me even more of a lesbian?  Anyway, he doesn't pee in his box in the house.  Tonight he semi tried but seemed a little pissed off at his new litter.  I fear the worst but then think that maybe he just has a huge cat bladder to go with his formerly huge cat nut sacks.  That's fair right?  Will see how he is tomorrow.

I'd kill for a big hot dog right now.

Day 17

My fridge looks like something out of Vegetarian Times.  It's all healthy food with the exception of a box of Snack Pack puddings I got on sale today.  Suck it!  I just took two different squashes out of the oven and realized that there is hardly any room for them in there.  Should be interesting when they cool and need to go in.  I love wrestling with the fridge.

Today was a fun day.  Well, short nap followed by a trip to Walmart to get blinds for the bedroom.  Right now I have very tacky fabric temp blinds and when I get new neighbours on that side of the house they will be able to see how much I love to walk around naked.  I could just wear clothes but what fun is that??

Dinner tonight...well, I had too much raisin bread followed by two mouth fulls of beans, skittles and then a try at another short nap.  I know, living the friggin dream!  How could I cook something?  Geez.  Tomorrow night I will be sure to bust up some of the wonderful veggies but until then I am eating crunch and munch waiting for Sister Wives.  I do wonder when someone will snap this little lady up!

Day 16

I had a thought earlier about what I was going to start with but that all changed when I went to take the garbage out.  Some back story...I live across from a church that is just down from this amazing Portuguese restaurant that was my last meal.  So, I open the front door and get a face full of the wonderful smells from the restaurant that I'm sure is working overtime making food for the after church crowd.  I think I might have humped the air a little.  Either way there was a little sadness and sexiness in my walk back into the house.

I got lots of good stuff today, cauliflower, turnips, veggies and some of those tiny cabbage things people hate.  I don't mind them and since my new goal seems to be to make my gas worse and worse each day, this should help.  For dinner, I almost wasn't in the mood to eat so I left it a little late and ended up having beans and potatoes.  Lame!  I know, you would think with all the stuff I got today I would make something wonderful.  Not so much.  Tomorrow for sure!  I plan to kind of cook for the week.

Right now I'm watching the food network.  Mistake today was watching a whole show on bacon.  They have something called bacon salt!  Anything can taste like bacon.  Bacon lip balm!  I know...wrong, yet you kinda want to do it.  I'd kiss that off a homeless man!  Maybe I need to not watch the food network anymore.  I just had a debate with myself about adding "Sex with Lynn Crawford on a butcher block" to my bucket list.  Aside from this not really being in the cards unless I win the lottery, Lynn and I are not getting any younger and butcher block sex would not be ideal for my back.  I'm a realist.

Day 15

I was kind of excited to see that I have made it this far!  I'm so hungry...but less hungry then usual.  Maybe that's some slight improvement.  Sadly tonight I'm busy cleaning and getting ready for the weekend...who doesn't scrub the bathroom floor on a Friday night? 

Tomorrow I'm getting organized with the shopping.  Should be a better blog then.  I've had 2 diet root beers and just burped to T.  I need to call it a night!

I promise tomorrow will be a chilling and in depth blog about my shopping, food and my thoughts and feelings about my gas levels.

Day 14

Sorry for the delay.  Teen Dad is on.  Thrilling.  I hate to admit I love these shows but honestly the fathers view on lady drama is something lacking.  Sullen boys looking stupidly into the camera really isn't as dramatic as an over tanned she-devil beating the crap out of a 350lb boyfriend.  Sadly I think Amber will someday run this world, just voted in so we don't have to hear her voice daily.  The White House will be pink and spray tans will be law.

Today was a not bad food day.  I tried to be more organized and took the good sweet potato dip for lunch with some veggies.  Most of the office (you know who you ball lickers are) got Mc Donalds.  It smelled good but then I thought about the last time I had a good go of the scoots and felt semi better about my choice of veggies.  Still, I would have sniffed a hand if they let me. 

I don't feel too bad really.  I need to be more organized and for sure I need to get a hair cut.  At some point this weekend I really need to think about making a food plan for the finishing weeks of this challenge.

Oh, last night I talked to a girl I used to work with that I really don't know.  She's a nurse and was in Toronto but moving back to London.  She's quit her job to do some third party marketing health thing...much like the shakes I do.  We talked about my health issues and she now wants to meet to talk about how she can help me.  Great.  She's going to try and fix me.  Chicks.

Day 13

Chicken Wings.
That is today's thought of the day.  Big ones!

I'm feeling much better today.  I made some great eggs for dinner tonight.  I looked like a professional chopping up onions and green peppers.  I always overcook eggs.  They never look like the semi undercooked eggs on TV or that I got at the Golden Griddle Buffet.  Oh....I'd forgotten about that.  Three days of Health and Safety Training and my lunches were spent hitting that buffet like Chris Brown.  My last day of training  I had lunch with my dear friend who works right by there.  You would think we were related by blood the way we took on that bacon.  She even had one plate with green jello and bacon...bless her.  I'm proud to call her family. 

I love that a woman that I work with messaged me late last night and let me know she was making some veggie lover food for today.  She made a spread of roasted red pepper, eggplant, mushrooms and something else.  It looked scary...but was really great.  I need to get creative like this.  We had a great talk today at lunch how my mind works.  For years I've thought "chicken for dinner, what can I make with that?"  Now I have to think what to make without that the big show stopper. 

I'm trying to be semi ready for work tomorrow with snacks and lunch.  I also have to watch Sons of Anarchy so will see how much I get done. 

Chicken Wings.

Day 12

I got some flack about missing day 11.  Sorry about that.  Nothing happened.  I finished my adult cough medicine and passed out.  If it matters my pants were not on when this happened.

A few people have been asking why I'm still doing this and even more so why I'm blogging about it.  Well, noticed my love of meat was getting out of hand.  Much like a clingy boyfriend getting no sex in return, I seemed to be spending a lot of time and energy who didn't give anything back besides not great health and BBQ hands.  As for the blog... Everyone is doing it and I just had to conform?  I use to make a ton of time for writing but the last few years I've not given it much thought.  Idea's in my head have just been forgotten rather then written down to explore.  I don't plan on getting to into my personal life either or my personal thoughts and feeling about my life and what is going in my personal life.

So today was not the best.  The cold keeps lingering on and with forgetting lunch I had pizza.  Without meat.  How is that even possible?  I almost choked on ordering it.  However while reading today's metro I learned how many gallons of water it takes to make a pound of beef.  In the future, not my life time but soon enough, everyone will be a veggie eater.  I can kind of see that.  I'd slightly want to have a piece of that last cow...but I see the point.

I know it's only Day 12 but I do see that I need to change the way I eat.  When I'm done at Thanksgiving I really think I will cut way back on meat.  A few times a week rather then a daily or twice a day need.  I don't think I could do this for the rest of my life or anything but the more I actually learn about eating meat free the more I think it could be a good idea.

Day Ten

Today I tried to pluck a nose hair for over an hour.  I'm becoming my father. 
Tonight will be a short one as I'm sick, tired and a little pissy.  It could be lack of meat, the sickness or my impending period.  I could change the blog  to "Off meat and on my period" but there goes my male readers.  Maybe not. 

I've kicked the cat out early and need to get some sleep before I try and go to work tomorrow.  Lets hope I get better soon so I can come up with some veggie friendly food.

Oh, found a great joke today about Pam Anderson today that really fits!

Pamela Anderson is in the Big Brother house. Apparently she’s vegan, although I’ve seen a video that would suggest otherwise.

Who doesn't love a good joke about Tommy Lee's cock?!?!

Day Nine

Short one tonight.  Still sick but feeling slightly better.  I wanted to roast something today...ended up reheating rice and veggie pizza.

I am watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, just to figure out why the husband of one of them killed himself.  I think it was because all they do is either plan parties or go to parties.  It's a lot of work for people who's main job is to order people around to take care of their houses.

My Mother, who I love dearly, invited me over tomorrow if I feel better for dinner.  Meat.  She said she would either make a roast beef or a pork roast.  I wanted to punch her in the face.  Lets just say I go over there and just eat veggies.  Lets just say I have that kind of self control.  I'm too soon out of the gate to say No to a woman who makes the best gravy in the world.  My buddy Mike was at her house one day when she was getting rid of week old gravy.  He took it and on our way home he stopped at the supermarket and got a huge bag of fries.  After heating up the gravy and fries he ate every bit of it himself, got the meat sweats and then the scoots.  He still to this day says it was worth it.  Needless to say, tomorrow I will be staying home...with my pants off and meat locked in the freezer downstairs.

Day Eight

Passed the one week mark!  How did that happen?  Sadly today I was thinking about eating shrimp.  Does shrimp have parents?  I made an omelet with shrimp once.  Felt like the morning after staying at a gay mans house but it was wonderful!

Today was not the best day.  Home sick from work with the sore throat that has now moved into my nose.  At 4 am I sneezed out something the size of a large babies fist and it was game over.  I don't sneeze neatly, something always comes out so since I was a kid I have blocked sneezes.  At home alone I let them fly full force into a kleenex.  I can't imagine missing a sneeze at work and having the world look at my snot on my shirt all day. 

I did my usual sick person routine.  I cleaned.  At 630 I knew work was not going to happen, so like any normal person I put in a load of laundry, got out the hoover and bleached the bathroom.  By 8 I was cleaning the kitchen thinking "I should take out a roast or a chicken to cook all day."  This is how deep the meat goes.  Let me clean that up.  This is how much I think about meat.  I'm home, might as well cook something big and time consuming.  I would love to do a big dinner for those people who's family is far away who just want to eat, hang out and watch bad TV.  I'm slowly becoming my mother...

Aside from being home "resting" all day I did manage to make some roasted veggies and take a picture.  Sadly I can't find the cord for the camera to upload.  Balls.  I started with sweet potato, little regular potato, carrots, then added some red onion and close to the end added zucchini and mushrooms.  Was very good.  I hope all these extra veggies make this cold go away.

I have a ton of apples to use up and might figure out how to make some sort of a crisp or something tomorrow.  I'd make a hell of a house wife if this cold kept up.  That and I'd need a lady friend.  Not something that will be happening any time soon since I'm sitting here smelling like vicks in a tight white T-shirt with vicks on my feet.  (Don't judge, someone told me it works.)

Day Seven

I'm cold, cranky and well on the road to getting my period.  So maybe this is the calm before the storm.  My deep and sexy man voice is in full force and causing me to cough a bit more then usual.  Tonight dinner was yet again not exciting.  I've been busy making notes on a group I have to run next week and need to be better for that.  Usually after this stressful group meets we drive back to London with burgers.  I'm not sure what to do to avoid this...maybe just get fries.

For sure this weekend I will cook and take pictures.  I don't want people thinking I'm sitting in a dark room thinking about meat and writing a blog.  Cause there is more to me then that.  And gas.

Day Six

I get it’s only day six and all but I have never wanted to suck the meat off a chicken wing so bad in my life.  I actually thought about honey garlic wings, thicker messy sauce not the runny kind that you get sometimes that really doesn’t stick to the wings.  Anyway, I fought the urge to order a pizza again tonight.  It wasn’t so bad but there was some self hate.  My throat is slightly better but I’m now moving on to the sexy dry hack.  Today I coughed and farted at work.  Fairly sure no one was the wiser.  Even if my work mates read this I don’t think it counts unless you actually catch me farting.  Just so you know.

I still feel like I need to cook a big meal.  Normally this would mean a huge hunk of meat surrounded by some seasonal vegetables…but right now I need to get organized and think about cooking up some vegetables tomorrow for dinner.  I can’t live on little things forever that get me around meat.  Also, this cold might go away at some point.  When that happens I don’t want to be rapist hungry and beat some poor co-worker for their lunch.  It’s bad enough I sniffed ones Mc Donald’s breakfast this morning.

PS.  Tonight I had cheese, crackers, rice and a package of Peanut Butter M & M’s that can only be found at the front of Shoppers.  I love them. 
PSS.  My pee smelled like Kraft Dinner today.  That can’t be good.

Tuesday, 13 September 2011

Day Five

The gas.  I wasn’t expecting to have so much gas pain today.  Sadly being in training I had to hold it in all day.  My work mates that read this blog are now putting two and two together with some of the faces I was making and perhaps the one sitting beside me in training is now realizing what a few sounds and smells were.  Yeah.  That was me.  When I was on the meat I felt that the farts came easier to me, they didn’t sit all high up in my bowels waiting for a little effort and pain before they worked their way down and out. 

Today I had my two shakes and a snack of veggies and hummus in the afternoon.  The veggies didn’t help and gave me a little gas power for the afternoon.  I don’t get why I don’t make more time for a snack in the afternoons and then come home all pissed off and tired.  Tonight I came home with a fever and man voice all exhausted.  Now normally I would feel this way, not cook and maybe order a pizza.  I don’t even see the point in a pizza without meat on it so that was out of the question.  I didn’t have the strength and energy to prep a bunch of veggies and cook.  So tonight I had Kraft dinner.   It’s not meat but its garbage food.   I seriously feel like crap for making something so easy but glad I didn’t crack and bust out some meat.  Will see how this comes out tomorrow.  I hope the gas isn’t as bad as today and that I start feeling better. 

Monday, 12 September 2011

Day Four

This is going to be sort.  Still feeling sick so not into cheating or eating much for that matter.  Dinner was a bun and some cheese.  I'm seriously going to be at 8 tonight even if I have to pitch the cat out the window early.  The cat had canned turkey yesterday.  I sniffed it and thought about it...

Sunday, 11 September 2011

Day Three

Today was a better food day!  I actually forced my sick self to make a small pan of roasted veggies for dinner.  Sweet potato, carrots and a small potato.  I was going to bust out some other stuff but a friend dropped over and by the time she had left everything was ready to go.  Good crust on the veggies just the way I like.  I almost feel like I can do this today. 

I do need to stop watching Diners Drive Inns and Dives.  I almost humped the TV today.  It’s 9/11 and I’m getting turned on by southern bbq.  I’m sure there is a special place for me in heaven.  I didn’t realize how much I think about meat until my semi dry hump today.  I seriously made a mental note on how to make a beef stew today.  I don’t care how good you are, you can’t put some tofu in that and feel like a good person.  It’s just not right.

I’m trying to keep up with the blog also.  I don’t want to miss a day and I’m sure as the days go on I will be really needing to get out the feelings that I have going on with food and feeling better cutting out the meat…and most of the crap I eat.  I can’t give up chocolate this close to my period. 

Saturday, 10 September 2011

Day Two

Well today I woke up with a sore throat and happy my mother is away for the weekend.  Why?  Momma believes that red meat will cure anything and has said that I was healthy until I moved out.  Amazing.  I should say that for years I didn’t eat red meat due to a natural doctor telling me I was sensitive to anything from the cow.  Thus my affair with soy milk began.  Mom is at a wedding in Michigan this weekend and I’m living on past guilt and lectures to feel the urge to eat a steak.  Lucky for me a sore throat causes me to clean and not be hungry.  I really should suck on door knobs at the mall and maybe I’d be a size two. 

Sadly for you the reader there is no drama yet.  No stare down with a hot dog or dry humping the door at KFC up the road begging for a coupon.  I guess I should get into this and tell you what I had for dinner.  Baked potato with salsa, cheese and some raw veggies.  Oh, and a friends tomatoes.  Easy so far???

Friday, 9 September 2011

Day One

I was thinking the first day would be big deal.  As I write this I’m exhausted and looking forward to a quiet Friday night.  After a long day at work I headed to the grocery store to make sure I have non meat foods on hand for my little adventure.  The produce section, or as I usually think of it, the walk way to the meat section has never been an area that I spend tons of time in.  Today I filled the top part of the cart with vegetables, few extra potatoes and fruit.  I tried to think about what I would be cooking and eating this week while giggling at the cucumbers I picked out.  

 I got lots of hummus and some sweet pita bread also.  Then came the meat section.  I avoided the entire corner the best I could but found myself looking sheepishly, much like a sex addict trying not to look at the top shelf of porn at the local variety store.  I glanced on bacon and chicken wieners for a dollar.  A dollar!  I don’t know what parts of chicken would be in those wieners but for a dollar!
I got home with my 4 bags of food.  Squash takes up more space then you think as does.  Anyway, before I could put away my new healthy food I followed through with my plan to move all the meat from my upstairs freezer to my downstairs freezer.  About this time my friend who has been giving me a hard time with this change arrived.  She held open a bag as I filled it with chicken, spaghetti sauce and more chicken.  The walk of shame with that bag to the basement freezer was a little heavy.  I mean, how many chicken sales did I hit this summer?  Anyway, when I came back up I realized how empty the freezer was and how much room I now had.  For what?  Frozen vegetables.

So now I’m exhausted and can’t even think about what to make for dinner or what to think about making.  So, dinner tonight was a pita, some sweet potato hummus and a diet root beer.  Slightly uneventful so far.  No one has had to pry a chicken leg out of my hand.  Yet.
