“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – 老子 (Laozi)
Well, here we are, after the first week back at my attempts to get healthier, and where am I?
I’ve lost six pounds…a good start.
I haven’t had a soda since last Sunday…also a good start.
I haven’t eaten meat since last Sunday. That feels like a really weird thing, and is probably the biggest success. I don’t even know the last time I went seven days without eating any kind of meat.
Yesterday could have been rough. As I’ve said before, Sundays are the days that we go out to eat after church with my in-laws, and then go over to their house for family dinner. We did end up going out for pizza, at Mod Pizza, which is a pretty decent place. I had the Dillon James (red sauce, mozzarella, asiago, sliced tomatoes basil, and garlic), and then customized it by adding onions, green peppers, oregano, and sun dried tomatoes. That’s the first time I’ve eaten a pizza without meat in a long time. I felt like that was a pretty good choice. And, since I had a light breakfast, and a salad for dinner, I stayed under my calorie budget, even without having time to exercise.
Saturday, by comparison, was pretty easy. I had eggs for breakfast, worked out for about 35 minutes, had a veggie sub for lunch, and tomato soup and a Caesar salad for dinner.
