Give It Up Challenge: Cheated With Just One Bite

FitSugar reader lauren decided to give up meat for the Give It Up Challenge.

I had given up meat for a week and a half. At home, my husband and I cooked up a variety of meals full of veggies! Absolutely no meat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sure I had started to miss meat but when there is no meat in the fridge, it is an easy temptation to resist.

My husband never signed up for the challenge, so the minute we ended up at a restaurant for dinner, he ordered a juicy bacon cheese burger complete with French fries. As I still have another two days of no meat, I ordered a grilled cheese and tomato soup. Hoping the melted cheese would be close to substitute for a juicy burger. Once our meals arrived I couldn't resist eyeballing his burger, it smelled just delicious. Unfortunately, my grilled cheese and tomato soup couldn't stop me from having just one bite of that juicy burger. I savored every moment of it and then went back my vegetarian plate. I did feel a little guilty for falling off the vegetarian wagon for just a moment but I quickly got back on. Do you miss your vice?

giving up meat was easy for me because of my digestive issues. Its just the thought of a tough peice of meat going through my digestive system that makes me not want to eat it. Plus I always hated handling raw meat, yuck.

I know this sounds kind of gross, but when I'm craving something naughty, I sometimes take one bite, chew it for a while, then spit it out in a napkin and then drink a lot of water. It's not something I do every day, but it prevents me from eating the whole cake/brownie/etc.
