As it turns out, vegan fasting was killing me slowly. I'm certain it would have been better had I shelled out the dough for amazing vegan foods, but with the resources that I had, it just wasn't happening. I can not live well and be a vegan. I was getting headaches, nausea, and yesterday was the final straw. I was in a meeting with my company, and I had a migraine so bad that it nearly made me pass out. My boss talked to me afterwards, thinking I had nearly fallen asleep.
I can not let this affect my career, so I am making a change to what I've been doing. I will still be going vegetarian, but, I am going to have to eat something for breakfast, and something in the middle of the day. No meat (fish) until dinner time. Knowing now that I simply can't function without eating at a normal pace, I'm so angry with myself for not being strong enough to go through the full 40 days.
Don't worry though, I'll still be giving up the alcohol.
