So I’ve been three months pescatarian 🐠. Going strong in my new way of life, until recently I got really sick. Started off as what I thought was small cold, turned into a gruesome stomach ache. Days go by and I’m undergoing severe cramps. Wth is wrong with me, is what I’m thinking. To speed the story up, I lost my appetite for about 2 days, didn’t eat a thing. My cramps and bloating subsided but not enough for me to pick up an appetite. I come home my mom’s like you need to eat “real” food. So yoooo my mom makes like the BEST tacos, she offers me some I’m like nahhh. So she proceeds to text me (yeah I’m in the next room, and yes I still stay with my parents post grad, haha), “you want my last taco?”. You guys it was a beef taco. I come out the room to temptation. I’m like you know what! It won’t hurt let me see if this sparks my appetite and hits the spot! I ate the taco, and created a debate in my mind as to if I should indulge in more. So after my mind starts telling me you’re gonna get sick, shortly after my taste buds and body agree, yuck it doesn’t even take like mom’s old tacos. I instantly regretted my decision, but at the same time it was more of an affirmation that my change of lifestyle was well worth it and maybe I should stick to it!
My point is, if you are going for something in your life rather it’s a change of diet, practicing abstinence, picking up a new hobby, etc, never let any one or any circumstance discourage you from obtaining your goal. Nine times out of ten when we indulge we end up feeling dissatisfied and upset with our decisions. Everyone slips up at times, but minimize your negligence so you may maximize and benefit from your goals!
P.s. I’ll stick to my shrimp tacos 😋
