I took the whole day off from aerobics today – the rain was coming down this morning so I accepted a ride to work and I’m taking one more day off from running.
Did the usual Thursday morning workout plus some headstands, air squats, wall presses and pull ups tonight.
Here’s what I ate today:
- Spicy Lentil Dahl
- Sauteed spinach and kale
- Green Salad with Salsa and Guacamole
- Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
- Roast Kabocha Squash
- Green Salad with Tahini Dressing
- Big glass of Cabernet
Lunch was El Pollo Loco brought in for a meeting today. And there were no beans on the menu. I was looking forward to a big plate of beans, salsa and guacamole and hoping their would be some salad as well. Turns out there was just salad, no beans. Crap. I survived it. Someone also asked “Don’t you like churros?”, I said “Of course I like churros”, but I didn’t eat one.
The Quinoa tonight is not technically allowed on the official “Slo Carb” diet, but this is my experiment and I’m trying to invent a proper vegan interpretation and trying to feed my family at the same time. Breakfast and lunch are fairly dialed at this point. Some nights dinner is going to be more genuinely slow than others. Sometimes more vegan.
That was a nearly vegan day today, but there was a little cheese tossed in with the salad.
I hope the weather is conducive to a lunch ride tomorrow. It’s birthday cake day and I know I’m eating a piece. Saturday night we have an actual birthday party to go to, so that’s going to be my official cheat day, but I’ll try to be restrained during the day, particularly since it’s the first week of the Slo experiment…and that cake tomorrow, of course. Long bike ride Saturday, long run Sunday will help with damage control.
