Today marks my 1st year anniversary since going vegan!!! Honestly, I’ve been so so SO excited about this, as if it were an anniversary with a significant other! Seriously… Maybe because in a way it’s an anniversary with the new me I met, a year ago, who I’ve grown to know and love so much! I’ve been enjoying my relationship with the new me very much!
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I could make it this far since, I’m not very good at sticking to anything in my life… so maybe that’s another reason why I was so excited for this day! I’m not stopping any time soon. I can’t wait until I can say I’ve been vegan for 5 years, 10 years, ect!
Actually, I have something even more exciting then it being my vegan anniversary…. Well, last night my husband accidentally started playing this documentary called Food Choices. As soon as I realized what it was talking about I immediately got excited and joined him on the couch. He saw how excited I was about the documentary and decided to leave it playing… Well… to make this short… at the end of the documentary he turned to me and said, “Denise, I think I want to try it…”
“You want to try it!?”… I was already crying from the film and being so happy to watch something like that the night before my anniversary… but then to hear that? I really didn’t think it was true. He couldn’t have meant what I thought he meant, could he?
“I want to cut out oil…. and fish for sure… I don’t want to fish anymore…” he said.
I interrupted, “And cows and pigs?”…
“And cows and pigs…” it was like he was talking dirty to me haha. I couldn’t believe my ears! I kept asking him the next day if he meant it and if he was really going to try. He reassured me that he wanted to try his best, he may not follow it 100% to a ‘T’ (is that how that expression is used?), but for now, trying is a whole lot better than not!!
So my 1st year anniversary turned out to be his first day vegan as well… He even texted me to tell me he stayed strong and said no to a KitKat bar! One of those special big KitKat bars even! Day 1 down, forever to go hah!
We’ll see how everything goes… I’m sure I will keep you posted. Hope you are all enjoying your week and the lovely fall colours and weather! It’s chilly, but perfect weather to cuddle up with the best throw you have and some good movies! Can’t wait for my next free weekend!
