Alrighty then! 14 Days as a Vegan and I lived to tell about it! Well, this is the 14th day, so I’ll have another scrumptious vegan dinner and then tomorrow I’m free! I am sure you all are dying to know how it went, so here’s the score: 2 weeks as a vegan, and I’m down 6 pounds. However I am not sure how much I would attribute that to being a vegan par se. Let’s not forget that I’m also trying to do the whole low-carb thing, so between avoiding carbs and any and all animal products, what’s left? Not much, so I have not been eating much. A greatly reduced caloric intake will work wonders, apparently! But the whole reason I started on this vegan trip was that they claimed it would lower my blood pressure. And on that score – big fail! My blood pressure is essentially unchanged. I guess I’ll have to start exercising regularly again, reduce my salt intake, or resort to blood pressure medicine! Hrmph. But here’s a little clue for you: it’s about the journey, not the destination. Don’t be attached to an outcome. Just do everything you can to achieve that outcome, and if it happens, it happens. That’s why I’m anxious right now, I have a number of irons in the fire right now, and none of them are getting hot, or at least, not hot enough where I’ll be able to do something with them. I’m anxious, because I’m attached to the outcome. That’s no good! I need to practice my zen-like lack of attachment I’m always preaching about, and just keep pushing. The universe will take care of the rest, like it always does. Peace out!
