I did it...

I ate meat last night. (!!!!!!)

It was a little hard right before the chicken was done. I cried and wasn't sure I could do it, but the hubby reminded me that we had already ordered half a hog, 20lbs. of beef, and bought a chest freezer:). So I pulled myself together, gave myself a pep talk:), and took a bite while I was carving it up.

It was really nice to sit down to a meal with the hubs and actually eat the same thing. That hasn't happened in SEVEN years.

And I'm feeling okay about it all this morning, I know the animal didn't suffer, in life or in death.

No digestive upset either, which is a relief! On to a paleo lifestyle! :)

Here's a picture of the cute little chicken, all dressed up:

Big milestone! Congrats! I tried to be vegan for too many years. Not good results. Countless things in my life have improved from paleo (& CrossFit).

Thanks Bill! I definitely never thought I would eat meat again, but CrossFit changed my mind!
