So, as cliché as it is, I’m making a New Year’s Resolution. Last year’s didn’t really pan out very well, so I’ve decided to reach for something a little more achievable. Drumroll please!
I’m going vegetarian! (Seems like a popular craze)
I just feel so bad about eating a dead animal. I mean, a ham and cheese sandwich tastes AMAZING, but… I’m trying to change. I’m going to have a healthier lifestyle. And I know, I could be healthy AND eat meat, but I don’t want to.
I already exercise for an hour and a half every day after school, so I’ve given myself a leg up on being healthy already. Plus, I attempted last year to be vegetarian and it lasted about 2 weeks at most. I’m hoping this lasts all year. Yep. all 365 days of 2013! I believe in myself, so I can do it.
What’s different from my last attempt at being a vegetarian is that I really had no planning involved. This time, I’ve looked up how many calories I need to consume, how much protein, calcium, zinc, and other vitamins I need and the foods that would correspond with each category, and I made a list. I figured out how many calories I need to intake in order to lose fat, even. I calculated how many calories from fat I need, calories from protein, and calories from carbohydrates I need.
This may seem a little obsessive, but I really want to give this a chance. I want to actually complete my resolution. Last year, it seems like they were unreachable. I mean really, talking like Shakespeare? Reading ninety books? Ok, I could have done the abs thing, but not really.
This year I’ll complete it! And I’ll like it. Wish me luck!
