Change Your Life Challenge

So I signed up for this.

This month's challenge is this.

The strange thing is that I don't actually consider vegan/vegetarianism healthy.  
I think meat should be a integral part of most healthy diets.
Not to even begin to discuss dairy and eggs.

Also, it takes more then a week to change habits.

But, I signed up.  Mostly because I like the idea of challenging myself every month.  
And going vegan will certainly be a challenge.
I don't figure a week can hurt much.  
Also, my new room mate is vegan, and I think understanding is a good thing.

So, I'll be going animal byproduct free within the next few days. 
And I'm excited to see where else this goes.
If you feel like joining us check out Monica's Challenge for yourself.

Good luck! I definitely couldn't do it - especially in Decemeber...with all the holiday meals!

Well, it's the first week so there better not be too much in the way of holiday meals! I will miss hot chocolate, though!

Best of luck! I couldn't do it. I love my animal products way too much, and get grumpy when I don't get meat in my diet!

Besides that, I couldn't actually go it because of health issues. Not without spending a kajillion dollars on supplements, which I most definitely can not afford.

I have faith you can do it though!

If I don't eat at least some form of meat every day I get sick.

I'm surprised at how many people say they couldn't survive without meat for a week. (with the exception of people who have actual health issues, Tab). I clearly think meat is a good thing but, seriously people. Can't?

I'm surrounded by redneck culture. And so that's pretty much the opinion I've always been exposed to.

I know that I would physically be able to. Probably better than I can imagine. I can't imagine that option ever being appealing, however. :)

Best of luck dear. I'll have a hot chocolate in your name.
