I miss writing. Not the research paper and news articles kind of writing but writing just for myself. It’s been a while since I last tried to add an entry in my journal. A week ago I started the vegan challenge and thought of it as a chance to get me into writing again.
I’m in the middle of week 2 now and I am thriving and enjoying the process when at home. Outside the house when I’m hanging out with friends is a different story. I have to put in much effort when dining out, asking and researching what’s veggie friendly in the area, what I cannot eat in the menu. And the temptation especially when confronted with a whole display of mouthwatering cakes and cookies. I’ve always been a sucker for sweets and it’s hard to resist.
I confessed I caved and had a slice of mocha and banana cake that my sister brought. Just a slice and then I stopped when I would have usually finished the whole thing. Maybe I should start baking?
