Today as I sit and watch the Yankees game I am thrilled with how I lived my day today - that I had a breakfast of oatmeal and fruit. A lunch filled with salad, and a dinner of salad (veganistically feeling slightly guilty, for no good reason, that I added a tablespoon of tuna to my salad), and one of my famous blackberry and cherry smoothies.
I did not do any cardio, but my heart rate was up and I worked up a good sweat. Later in the steam room I started to think about Ted Koppel's son who died after an all day drinking binge. He was my age, and I kept thinking what a terrible way to go - whether it be drinking, or drugs, or even over eating, to just poison your body until it shuts down forever. I really felt guilty over my Memorial Day Weekend even though I drank less than a typical big weekend (still way too much). I am actually proud of this new mindset, and will continue to master moderation in partying like I have been able to, for the most part, master moderation in eating.
The warm weather and humidity is pretty uncomfortable, but I remember how brutal it was when I was 300 lbs!
