Who says you "NEED" meat?

It has been over a week since I have eaten meat and I have to say I am not really missing it. I have never been a huge meat lover and this vegetarian diet has been working out wonderfully. I have been truly enjoying all my eats and isn't that what life is all about? Enjoyment!
Tonight I made a spicy tofu rueben sandwich...
Doesn't it look devine? It was ezekiel toasted bread, tofu fried into brown and crispy.

Saurkraut, swiss cheese....

And a sauce made of lite mayo, ketchup, sweet pickle relish and a little hot sauce. You have to give this a try it was fabulous. I could have easily eaten two of these. I also fried up some cabbage and topped it with mustard and splenda. Yes I haven't quite been able to give up everything. I am working on it!
I went to my therapist today and we did a hypnosis session. Have you every done hypnosis? What are you thought about it? It was so relaxing and I felt really good after. I am hopeful it will help me to a better, more full filling life.
Hubby was gone to a business open house so he was probably thrilled to finally be able to eat meat! Does anyone live with a partner who is not a vegetarian/vegan? How do you cook your meal? It has been kind of hard. Part of me want him just to jump the the bandwagon with me and another part want to respect his wishes. I hope we can find a happy medium so where.
I have been really tired all week and not sure if I have had the best workouts. Part of me want to just give my body a break and rest a few days but another part wants me to suck it up and just do it. Do you every have this? How do you deal with it?
My son called yesterday and he made second team for the football team. So he will be traveling with the team for the first game. We are thrilled for him. He has worked hard and it has truly paid off for him. The bonus for us is that the first game is in Indiana and is only 2 hours from our home. We will be going to the game. I am excited and looking forward to seeing him.
Tomorrow is Friday! I thought it would never get here.

Kathi, keep being proud of you and don't ever underestimate it.

You're doing a brillint job of everything and it's great to see you getting some more good things in life.

You get those suck it up days and when you do, you just do it. It's better to do it than not, because not doing it doesn't feel too great, but doing it feels better afterwards.

You're a lot stronger than you perhaps realise. Chin up, no worries and best wishes.

Yummy sounding sandwich. I am a major sauerkraut fan. My husband is not totally vegetarian. We do not cook meat at the house though. He only eats it when out. There's no way I could cook it for him and he is completely happy with the meatless meals we make.
