Yes, indeed, I have progress to report. Not much, but it's a start.
I jogged this morning about 1/4-1/2 a mile, down to about 16th Street on Clement. Then I walked all the way to Arguello and back. Nice morning and lots of exercisers with their doggies out. I'm glad I went. I used to be able to jog/run the whole thing (about 3-4 miles) but I'm out of shape. So I'm giving myself a
for starting up again.
Today for breakfast I'm having my last grapefruit. Then for lunch I'm probably having pasta and broccoli:
Broccoli (steam in bag in microwave, very quick)
heirloom tomatoes, chopped
This mix is surprisingly very tasty and filling.
Tonight I'm going to the East Bay because my friend's mom wants to cook for us. Not sure what's on the menu but she knows I'm vegan. Unfortunately, she doesn't know I'm no oil also. I will make do this time and find a time to get it across to all my friends that I'm serious about McDougalling as opposed to just being vegan, and that means no oil, etc. So this should be the last time. I'll see what she cooks though. She's Mandarin/Taiwanese.
I'll stay in the East Bay 'cuz tomorrow is my friend's bowling birthday party. I should be able to navigate through suburbia OK, even without my parent's kitchen to rely on. I'm sure Sunday will be 100% McDougall. I know a lot of recipes/meals now that I can put together quickly and easily to making eating this way yummy...even without a sink or stove! Kudos pour moi.
I'll try to McDougall 100% today also. I'm kicking myself for not explaining the no oil thing to my friends more. Problem is on special occasions I allow myself treats ~ and that's usually when I'm with them.. then other times I have a feeling they see me as a fussy vegan but don't really understand that means no oil. So I'll see what her mom cooks..
Anyway, I'm glad I got a little bit of exercise, even if it's far behind where I once was. Jogging every morning really
helps me stay on track.
I'm off the return the classical guitar I bought. I love it but I wanna get an acoustic one so I can learn Brandi Carlile songs. I'll wait, save up, and try to find a cheap used one.
