So, I've been thinking about becoming a vegetarian. I've been feeling like I live to eat, and that's not a good feeling, especially when being busy (and crocheting so much) means that I tend to spend a lot of time sitting. I want to eat better, and I think that if I restrict meat in my diet I won't be able to eat a lot of the bad things I eat now, like fast food. It'll force me to eat more vegetables, and be more creative about the meals I make.

While I'm at it, I may almost go vegan, since Cory's lactose intolerant (and I'm all but), and we tend to not drink hardly any milk and cheese can hurt our tummies.

I just don't know whether I can do it, though. I love bacon and Burgerville and chocolate and all that yummy stuff. I know that I won't miss it after awhile, but I miss it now, even though I haven't really stopped eating meat yet.

I tend to find dorky reasons why I maybe shouldn't go veg - one of them is that I have a subscription to a recipe mag that isn't veg. I have a hard enough time trying to figure out what to make for dinner when meat IS an option. And I think it may be more expensive, as well. But of course I can't back that up because I haven't tried yet. :) I also don't want to inconvenience other people when we go out to eat together or I visit them for dinner, which is a really dumb reason to not become a vegetarian. Oy.

Anyway. Lots to think about. Cory's ready to try it too, but I still am torn.
