At last, my 30 Days trial is coming to an end. I’m excited that I have been able to keep up with it despite all odds. I actually started this exercise exactly 60 days go, since then I have had to restart the 30 day trial all over again three times because I had absent mindedly taken a bite of meat at different times. Today however is the second to the last day of this exercise.
I remember some people started with me with different things back then, I hope you have continued and seen the trial to an end. I’m so glad I didn’t give up, and have been able to finish. Believe me, the last 60 days have really been interesting for me.
My observations during the course of these 60 days have been educating. I embarked on the 30 days vegetarian trial, because I read some information from a friends writeup that said not eating meat/fish increases conciousness. I can’t say if I was more aware, because I had not measured my level of conciousness prior to this exercise. I have however observed that it became easier to say no to meat/fish in the later days. I also observed that it was easier for me to be concious of the exercise in the later days, as I no longer was absent minded. I observed that I got weaker in the evennings a bit quicker though, making keeping my late nights bit more difficult (I think so). I have also learnt that one is likely to achieve more when one talks less, and that what doesn’t get tracked doesn’t get done.
In the course of this exercise, I have lost 3kg despite not reducing my intake. I feel a little fresher (some say I look fresher too). I also feel more confident, I completed this – I can complete anything I want to complete. I also feel like I should do this once in a while, just take 30 days stretch and give myself a goal. Setting a target for myself made me pay attention to many things I would not have observed, so in a way, I can say I was more concious.
It’s been good while it lasted, now I sincerely don’t think I should spend the next 30 days without assigning a trial to it. I’ll keep you posted.
