The fast went OK, but only lasted until evening. My daughter’s gymnastics competition was held in Atlanta, so instead of being able to spend the entire day just chilling out, I had to spend the last few hours packing for the trip. I went ahead and had a good supper. I never really missed the food – but “not eating” can, of course, be very, very unhealthy.
I’ve been eating a ton of “strange salads” – that’s what my wife calls them – lettuce, real bacon bits, organic sunflower seeds, sliced pineapple and sliced dill pickles. I could eat “strange salad” at or for every meal. In fact, I think I just might, for a week or so, and see how I feel. I’m backing away a bit from the bacon bits – and I hate salad dressing – but the “strange salads” seem to fill me up and keep me satisfied.
I am still consuming more diet Mountain Dew than I should – but I’m working on it. We’ve been traveling for the better part of 4 days, so I’ve been trying to limit my fluid consumption. It’s hard to drink 8 cups of water when you can’t stop every 15 minutes to use the restroom!
Oh yeah, I am going to buy a bicycle in the morning – and my goal is to bike or hike through the trails at all of Georgia’s State Parks!
