Ship’s Log–November 15th


Following the Eat to Live plan 100% of the time is tough when there are kids in the house. I didn’t even make it two days before  agreeing to a minor cheat meal. Thing 2 has a friend sleeping over, and with two little boys making puppy dog eyes and begging for take out pizza, I caved. The Hub upped the ante by bringing home beer with the pizza.

I tried to minimize the damage by skipping the usual handful of Daiya shreds, which are basically just salty fat bonded by starch and not exactly nutritious. I also held myself to three small slices and skipping any sort of dessert. While this was not an ideal meal by the Eat to Live Standards, it wasn’t terrible. I could have done better by having a glass of red wine rather than the beer, but gosh I love a good pint of Boddington’s when I can get it.

Today’s Fitness:

Four mile fast run, much faster than what I have been able to do recently. It didn’t even feel that hard, which is amazing.
