I think if you feel that way, you should definitely allow yourself to try those things while you think about the direction you want to take. Take some pressure off of yourself.

Yeah maybe. A lot of guilt to get past though.

I hear you on the Honeybees thing, I'm on the fence about it. My wife and I have discussed it (she's vegetarian) and she makes some good points. Since I can't make up my mind I won't consciously purchase or consume it, but if it sneaks it's way into something I eat I'm not going to get crazy over it.

In the end you just have to do what feels right to you. If it's ethical guilt, you can still make ethically sound choices in the eggs and other animal products you buy, which is still a step in the right direction. It's a bit of a step back from being vegan, but still plenty of steps ahead of the general populace.

Are you still Crossfitting? Those last three workouts don't look like the standard WOD style...

Yeah, they're not WODs. Between my normal shifts, command school, my command school research paper, and my mother-in-law's breast cancer, I haven't had much time for CrossFit lately. I do intend to go back, hopefully this week coming up. So in the mean time, to make sure I'm still doing something, I've been doing the Stronglifts program while at the fire station. Although I seem to have started rather low...I'm sure it will become more challenging soon enough.

Didn't get to do the squats because we were dispatched to a gas leak.

Rob, your firefighter challenge has been a great one to follow on here, an unique story and many of us have been interested. How have things been going for you? I haven't seen you post in a while.
