I fucking failed fish week.

One task. Well apart from work, the gym, loving my boyfriend and not eating sugar. All I had to do was not eat meat, just fish and seafood. I failed. It was a total brain fart moment too. We were grabbing snacks for the train to Edinburgh and I was trying to be conscious of not having any sugar and complex carbs. So I grabbed carrots, hummus and CHICKEN. Absolute fail. And you know what? I didn’t even realised I had broken pescetarian week until AFTER I had scoffed down every delicious morsel of said chicken. Oh the guilt I felt.

I did go back to eating only fish for the rest of the weekend. Trying to right my wrong. I can admit that I felt and still feel fucking fantastic from reducing the large amount of red meat I usually would eat in my diet. The fact too, that seafood is more lean made me feel light and healthy.

I really thought that I would feel faint or starved the whole time – especially when going to the gym. But I didn’t! I felt absolutely fine and still pushed through my gym work outs with much gusto. Needless to say, fish week has now become fish fortnight (excluding my chicken scoff on Saturday). When I told Phil I was extending fish week to fish fortnight, he rolled his eyes at me and said “yes, darling”. I love him for being so supportive in every fad and grand idea I have.

Seriously though, eating fish and seafood is the bees knees. My body has coped wonderfully and I am happy to keep going. I’m eating a lovely array of prawns, salmon (smoked and fresh), haddock and tuna, with no complaint! Watch this space. Let’s see if we can merge fish fortnight into fish month. This week I will do better though, and not eat chicken, unless it’s chicken of the sea like that famous Jessica Simpson quote;

Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it’s tuna, but it says ‘Chicken of the Sea.’
