I woke up yesterday (26 December 2014) and I felt it was high time I stopped eating meat. I’ve wanted to do this since a long time but there were 2 reasons which prevented me from doing it.
First, it was more convenient – if I’m hungry, I can just make a chicken burger and have that with bread and I’m all sorted. If I’m out and about, I can always get a Zinger burger at KFC. If I wanted to cook a nice meal, you can’t go wrong with chicken which is what I’m used to anyway.
Secondly, I want to put on some more muscle mass and meat is an easy source of protein which is crucial in bodybuilding. I was scared I wouldn’t be able to bulk up if I stop eating meat but the truth is I wasn’t gaining lean muscle mass anyway because I don’t train as hard as I need to (I hardly exercise btw :D).
I guess when I woke up, I thought enough was enough and I could go on procrastinating about this and never get it done. It is boxing day and the Christmas and 2015 New Year celebrations are still intense and in my mind, I’m thinking maybe I should wait till January and have this as a New Year Resolution instead. However I know deep down it’s an excuse and if I put it off for another day, then I’ll never be able to do it.
I just bought 36 chicken burgers, chicken sausages and still have some chicken breasts in the fridge and tuna cans in the cupboard and I’m thinking I should probably get through these first otherwise it’s going to waste. But then I know myself too well now and decided to just go with the flow, so let’s see what happens next.
