Day 25 of Pending-Vegetarian Diary

I am so sorry! Eek! I have been so behind on my P-V Diary and recipes. I have a lot of pictures already prepared with “Basically A Baker” written on them so that makes posting easier. I hope you can forgive me.

I am trying to cut high fructose corn syrup from my diet but it is so frustratingly hard. The stuff is in practically everything in America! No wonder we are struggling with obesity.
I told my Mom two times two weeks apart that I was a vegetarian (not correct, I am trying to be one) and she didn’t believe me at all. When she makes stir-fry (from a bag) it usually has a meat product in it. I had to say “no thank you” yesterday and she looked at me funny. She had said the stereotype words I dreaded. “Jessica, honey, vegetarians don’t get enough protein.” I cringe as I type this. I know she is just not educated enough about vegetarians and vegans, so when I am officially a vegetarian I will educate her. Yup. I am postponing it.
Since I love to talk about health related things in this Diary, I am going to tell you about my favorite Wii games. My family has a collection of about 40 games. We got addicted. I never bought one personally, but I am really grateful for 3 of those 40. They are:
Gold’s Gym: Cardio Workout
The Biggest Loser
Wii Fit Plus
Clearing something up: I am thin but I am not toned so these help so much. I recommend them to anyone trying to tone up, has a Wii system, and has some extra cash.
Thanks for reading! It means a lot to me.

Day 4 of Pending-Vegetarian Diary

Well I ran out of Silk Almond Vanilla Milk so this sucks. And I was craving it too! I poured myself a regular glass of milk and it tasted really…. weird. I am used to be one of those people that can down a glass of milk at every meal. I try to avoid it now and drink Almond Milk instead. I am going grocery shopping later.

I am cutting coffee temporarily from my diet. And when I say diet, I mean what I eat. I had been drinking bottled light Starbucks coffee for the past two weeks because testing at school has been crazy. It gave me a boost. But yesterday I drank more than I usually do, and my body was acting up. I had to pee constantly and I wanted to go to sleep but my brain wouldn’t shut off. This made me act like a zombie all day. People were asking me “Jessica. What is wrong with you? You aren’t acting normal…. Maybe you should see the nurse.” And I told them I was fine. Obviously I was freaking out and knew it was the caffeine. So temporarily, I am cutting coffee from my diet.

Things to remember (doesn’t apply to you necessarily):

Candy/Chocolate(as in Reeses) will make me lose energy (it may be just me)

Cow Milk makes me want to throw up

Coffee messes up how my body works

(recipe tomorrow)
