No Meat!

Today is the day I start my pseudo vegetarian summer activities. Miss Conservative dared me a week ago that I couldn’t go vegetarian for more than a couple of days. I admit, I LOVE my meat: beef and lamb especially. But this was something I couldn’t pass up because she acts like I have no self control whatsoever—possibly evident in my 250lb body. So for at least the rest of the summer, I will have not meat except for fish & dairy.

Honestly, I don’t think it will be that hard. I went for months w/o chicken b/c I had one bad experience. I only recently started eating it again. I’m not really worried, b/c I’m not just a meat eater. I like to eat FOOD! It is comforting—that’s where problem lies.

She will be shocked by how well I do. Meat really is not the end all, be all. Maybe, I’ll shed a few pounds in the process. So, I recite my mantra and begin: Prov 16:3 Commit your works to the Lord and then your plans shall succeed.

Sorry to leave the link for the What Teachers Make video here... I am not great at figuring out how to contact people other than commenting.

Here's the link, I hope it works. If this doesn't do it, do a YouTube search for "What Do Teachers Really Make" by Taylor Mali
