Sorry, but there is no way to abbreviate that any more. I’m a guy that likes spending time with people in a social setting surrounding food. Call that the curse of my ethnic background but food, and often drink, is a standard part of that arrangement. We aren’t talking a gourmet foodie Instagram worthy meal every time, but we also aren’t talking about just hot dogs and hamburgers either. Abstaining from the wine or drinks is pretty easy, there are other rather good options. Abstaining from almost all the food is another matter.
With Hurricane Arthur right off the coast our previously oppressively hot and muggy weather has turned almost spring like. What better way to enjoy the weather than with some running and then watching Fourth of July fireworks with friends.
So much for being on a roll. One free day turned into two, but will not turn into three. At least I held myself to a good clean Paleo diet all day.
A Muslim friend of mine pointed out to me that I should try fasting like they are doing right now for Ramadan. I actually have informally been doing that periodically, but have looked at doing that once I hone down what my personally optimal diet is. But once I started eating I didn’t want to stop. At least being on Paleo without any Paleo-labeled (so not really Paleo) junk food around the house, it was highly nutritious eating.
With one month of Paleo behind me, I look forward to continuing the success that I have had so far as well as to hopefully get a little more cooking experimentation in. With some holidays and vacations mixed in that won’t necessarily be easy, but we’ll find out how that goes soon enough. As it was, today was a relatively ordinary day with some good eating and finally a roll on the exercise front.
With a day of training, but with some necessary errands mixed in, I didn’t plan on doing much more than eating my huge vegetable and nuts snack, eating some salad then coming home and repeating the same routine. Boy did I call that wrong!
Okay, I’m seriously going to go running today. I promise!
I started getting into the real estate search business recently. I like my house but in the quest to look at the reasonableness of doing an upgrade to the house I ended up looking for a new one. If you have ever done a house search you know that entails lots of time in a car. This was no exception.
Regardless of how much energy I felt I had the day before, I knew that not getting anywhere enough sleep the day before was going to hit me eventually, and so it did today.
When I woke up at 3:45 am and couldn’t get back to sleep, I assumed I was going to be in for a crash half way through the day. Little did I know I’d still be up at midnight still going strong.
