Going Pescatarian

Hot yoga. Running. “Trying” to eat right. I’ve been doing all these things pretty regularly for the last 4 months and haven’t been seeing results. My favorite work pants are still super snug, and I had trouble fitting into my bridesmaid’s dress this past weekend. So what else is there left for me to do?

Apparently my idea of eating right isn’t “right” in any meaning of the word. A number of incidents have happened in the past week that really opened up my eyes (I won’t bore you with the details! Just know that the book ‘Skinny Bitch’ was involved) — but I’ve ultimately come to the decision of becoming pescatarian. No more chicken, turkey, beef, pork, or any other land animals for me. I’ve done an abundant amount of research on this topic and think that I’m suitable for this lifestyle. That’s not to say it won’t be hard… I’ve tried being a full vegetarian twice in my life and failed both times,  but was able to keep red meat out of my diet for 7 years at one point. So, I know I have the discipline. I need to just remind myself of WHY I’m doing this:

I’d ideally like to update my  blog daily, but both you and I know that won’t happen. So, I’ll update as often as I possibly can to let you know my progress!

I’d love to hear some stories and insights from other vegetarians, pescatarians, and vegans out there.

  1. Skinny Bitch was terrifying. I thought (from the cover) that it would be a light-hearted chic guide to losing weight. I purchased the book on itunes and listened on my commute to work. I felt like the narrator was yelling at me for everything I had ever eaten, and then told sad and graphic stories about killing animals. 🙂

  2. […] has been a very interesting week. On Monday, I celebrated one year of maintaining my pescetarian diet! This was a huge milestone for me considering I’ve been a carnivore most of my life  […]
