Days without meat: 7
So far, I'm not missing meat/various other animal products. I'm missing the convenience (fast food, mostly), but not the stuff itself. I am still eating cheese, because that's going to be one hard dietary habit to break. But I have replaced all my milk with soymilk, butter with soy butter, hot dogs with veggie dogs, etc. I have tried cooking with tofu and checked out cookbooks from the library. So far, so good.
Days on antidepressants: 4
Although I know I won't get a good, full effect from my drugs for a couple more weeks or so, I am already noticing differences. I feel calmer, more patient, and able to think more clearly. As for side effects, here's what I've noticed: when I drink, I still feel nice, but things are sharper. It's what I call a "smarter drunk." I also yawn more frequently, which is admittedly strange, but not too bothersome. My appetite is diminished a bit. There may be a possible sexual side effect - I'm not entirely sure yet - let's just say it takes me longer, but the time -ahem- is worth it.
Days until our impending nuptials: 32
Almost a month to go. My dress is in the process of being made. We're meeting with our officiant this week to work on our vows. I still need to print and mail out the invitations (yeah, that's important). I also need to secure things with the cake, the photographer, and the flowers. Shit, I better get on these things.
Days until my birthday: 10
Hooray, not that important.
