Staggering Resolutions: Weekday Veg

It’s been a long time since I introduced “Staggering Resolutions,” my plan to do a new mini-resolution every month. The first one of those resolutions was to quit smoking, and I’ve had serious trouble sticking to that one. But now I’ve got several months of not smoking under my belt again, and I want to move on to the next thing.

So I’m trying a new one this month: weekday vegetarianism. This means exactly what it sounds like: Monday through Friday, I’m not eating meat. On the weekends, I’m reverting to my natural, carnivorous state.

I’ve found it a bit difficult to explain precisely why I’m compelled to do this. It’s mostly for health reasons, I think, but it’s also kind of interesting to change up my routine. And already, I’ve found one meal near the office that’s absolutely delicious, and which I probably never would’ve tried without the constraint of vegetarianism. (The meal: Alterra Foundry’s grilled veggie burrito.)

Anyway, this is happening. And I might blog about it some more. We’ll see.
