30 Days of Pescetarianism

I’m sure that many of you create New Year’s resolutions every year. And like many people (including myself) you don’t keep, or even remember many of them by February. Well, thanks to all of those flash sale sites like LivingSocial.com and LifeBooker.com, I’ve been able to keep one major resolution I made in 2011.

That resolution was to start working out… like… for real. The e-card above represents a harsh reality but it’s my reality and since I’ve become fully aware of it, I’ve made working out a challenge for myself. Throughout 2011, I took yoga classes, kickboxing, and a few ab classes but since December, I’ve finally begun going to the gym religiously. But of course, living a healthy life isn’t just working out or eating healthy independent of each other. So, for the month of April, I’ve been trying out pescetarianism.

Wanna know more (because there’s definitely more), look below…

For those of you who don’t know:

Pescetarianism is the practice of a diet that includes seafood but not the flesh of other animals. Unlike a vegetarian diet, a pescetarian diet includes fish, as well as vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains and beans, and may include shellfish, eggs and dairy foods.

This will undoubtedly be a challenge for me because although I enjoy cooking, I was raised as a meat eater. Hopefully, during this 30-day period, I’ll be able to hone my skills as a psuedo chef and increase my awareness of everything I’m eating.

As a part of this month long process, during which I’ve also been concentrating on cleansing my system (for reasons like clearing up this damn acne and ridding my body of 20-something years of toxic stuff). I’ve given colon hydrotherapy a shot. Tomorrow is my third and final session.

By doing all of this, I’m hoping to move my body into a healthier place; one in which I can actually get up the train station steps without huffing and puffing (like I’ve been doing for the last 4 years). When did I become so unhealthy? I used to be a dancer for goodness sake!

By the end of this thirty-day period, I might decide to be a pescetarian for the rest of my life, or another 30 days, or I may eat a bowl of pork every day until I die. This trial will serve as a period of cleansing and learning. Hopefully, you guys will stick around for it.

For those of you already following me on Twtter, Facebook, Tumblr, and/or Instagram, you’ve probably seen a few of the meat less dishes I’ve made. Check back here for those recipes.

Any of you pescetarians? Vegetarians? The comments section is finally back open so drop me a line. :)

    I think that there is so much that our body can do if we give it the right things to work with.
