My Changed Life

Imagine, I debated for a long time whether to order chicken or not. It was recommended, and I decided to try it at Freemans restaurant in the Lower East Side. Althought the decor would be an anathema to PETA, the restaurant is a good, hip place. I ordered the vegetables and side of brussel sprouts which were good, but again, too oily (I even ordered light on oil).

My date had the scallops which were tasty as well.

It is quite remarkable that in this current life of mine the big deviation of the norm was a chicken dish. For the old me, that would have been the healthiest thing I ate.

The rest of the weekend was rather healthy - save for the cigar and rye Saturday night while pitching woo.

Which brings me to me next topic. I met someone very special who was an outstanding tennis player (once ranked number 1 in New England) in her youth, and loves exercise and healthy eating. Part of the reason I was negligent in writing in the blog was because I spent the weekend with the tennis star doing things like walking in the park.

Also, I am fast approaching a year on my vegan quest and aftermath. What more can I write?

So, as I continue to eat healthfully, and live a life dedicated to life and not immediate gratification, and with a wonderful burgeoning relationship I feel like I will just be repeating myself. My goal weight is another month and a half away I figure, and my life has changed so much for the better.

I think I might end this blog on the anniversary of my Vegan Quest which is November 1st. I am really not sure what else to write about? Excercise tips and eating tips can be found in multiple places, so I guess I have just run out of things to say.

I will end these final two weeks strong with my thoughts on vegansim, healthy eating, and how I continue to navigate a very social lifestyle.

There are some who like to email me, so PLEASE continue to do so!

Today, surprise, I had oatmeal for breakfast, edamame and miso for lunch, had a moderate work-out after work, and vegetarian powerhouse salad from Chopt for dinner.

Oh, and I watched my beloved Yankees get pummeled.

I will miss you if you stop the blog! It has been an interesting aand entertaining journey. Thanks for taking us along with you.

You have a typo in the 4th paragraph. You wrote "safe for the..." and I think you mean "save for the..." I had to read it a few times before I figured out what you were trying to say.

I am going to be a little sad to see you go but if you have run out of the things to say it sounds like it is time.

Enjoy your new relationship, I hope it is everything you are anticipating. ;-)

Thanks Ali - you have been the best comment maker! I just feel my posts are getting boring and stale.

Terrence, I will miss checking in on you. :(

Perhaps I should have commented more.

I loved reading your adventures. My life in a rural area is quite different.

Also, I have often wished love, and marriage for you. (whether you wanted it or not) LOL! I had hoped to one day read about the love of your life, see wedding photos etc... Maybe even kids!

What can I say, I am a romantic at heart. :) I am happy you have met someone, now I will always wonder how it worked out for the two of you. :(

I hope someone inspires you to continue on with your blog!

I will miss your updates, but really -- life takes priority over blogging, always. Congrats on your changed life. I have picked up Eat to Live because of you and though I continue to more or less "flirt" with the idea of veganism, I am eating better and feeling better than before. Maybe I'll take the entire plunge eventually.

Naina, Hebba - thanks so much! I so appreciate your comments. Yes, it is quite a little community here...I did think for a time of doing just a weekly blog instead of daily just to keep up on the news of what is happening in my diet and life, but not sure. I really appreciate your support and interest in my personal life . Thanks so much

I too will miss your witty posts about what you've been eating, where you're currently exercising and all of the characters you've met along the way! Do say you'll continue at least weekly? Please!!
