After sleeping in (hah) until 6:00, I felt completely unmotivated to go running, so I read the New York Times for twenty minutes or so, until it occurred to me that I could borrow my mom's bike and go for a ride! So I left at 6:30, and did 7 miles at a pretty moderate pace. I really think that the early morning is the most beautiful time to be outdoors. The air was cool, I had plenty of energy, the roads were nearly empty, and it was a great ride! Also, I was pleased to feel some soreness in my shoulders and glutes/hamstrings--proof that my kettlebell workout yesterday was effective!
Today's breakfast was a two-egg omlette-- omelette? can't EVER spell that right. call it an om-nom-nom-lette, 'cause it was filled with tomato basil cheddar and cooked in butter, and therefore DELICIOUS. yum. had a handful of raspberries, too.
Lunch will be chicken burgers & beef burgers with the family, big bowl of green salad with olive oil & balsamic vinegar; I'll pull off the bun (that sounds dirty... also: I'll have my burger naked! hehehe. grow uuuup, what are you, six? yes, more or less. maturity is for losers. <end parenthetical internal dialogue/>) ANYhooo, the family is not yet aware of my no-grains switch... hopefully they'll just figure it out & not comment on it. I don't really feel like explaining the whole 'primal' idea to them; I might just explain it as not wanting to eat processed foods.
Dinner was at an Italian restaurant, with the whole family; I had the "special chef's salad"-- a giant bowl of romaine topped with more than a cup of chopped provolone, ham, and salami, with a scoop of tuna salad in the middle of a provolone rosette. this salad was like, WOAH. Delicious. I finished probably 2/3 of it, making a valiant atttempt. Some of the meat and cheese will go into my eggs tomorrow; it might be lunch, too.
