1% change...

As those who have attended my workshops know, I have been trying to make a change in my diet.  I have wanted to eat less meat and many of you have given me some great suggestions, ideas, and recipes. 
I have made the leap.  I noticed one day I had not had any meat so I thought I might as well just run with it.  I have been meat free (mostly) for about 2 weeks.  I say mostly because I went to a dinner party, had completely forgotten to tell the host and thought it was just to rude not to eat what they made for us.  I had a small piece of meat with many vegetable and bread.  It was still a wonderful meal.
I have to say it has been easy.  Awkward sometimes, but that is only if other people draw attention to it.  I don't miss meat, and know that I may some time, but not now. I have even survived coming into the house to the smell of bacon!!
Meal planning has been a bit of a challenge, but I just add another vegetable and/or salad.
The more I read and see about the ecological impact of eating meat and the information about the farms that process the meat, makes it increasingly hard to justify the habit.
I am not going to be forcing this on anyone and my own family can make there own changes or not. I just want to be a better example, provide alternatives and possibly improve my own health in some way.  I still have lots of other habits that need to change, but right now this is doable.  I am always aiming for harm reduction to myself and my world. 
I can now say, 1% change is possible and actually I am capable of more.  That is really encouraging.
The lessons to remember; I am worth it; I can only change myself. 
That is enough.

This is one the best workshops which I have attend till now. I have been to your workshop before but I was not impressed at all. But this workshop has very good information in it and that is very much useful to me for my project work. I even thought of asking you for material on the work you have done.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions oradvice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
