The day starts off with a huge cup of organic coffee (no sugar or half & half) in bed to help move things along. Later in the day I got to paint my new antique night table. I take furniture out of the trash and paint it. This way if the piece looks like crap I can just put it back in front of the house where I got it. I will post pictures when I am done.
My big birthday celebration was blowing out the candle on a beautiful tea cake from the Concord Tea Cakes Bakery in Concord MA. He ordered the cake before he realized that I was serious about this new eating plan. I didn’t eat the cake, but I took pictures because the cake was so beautiful.
My husband, the man who has sworn off tofu and tempeh forever my Dave found a vegan restaurant for my birthday dinner. We went to the amazing Garden Grille Café in Pawtucket RI. He ate salad and squash quesadillas on gluten free tortillas that is why I love him so. Next door we ate dessert at a vegan bakery. Don’t make that face, the baked goods were awesome! I tried a small bite of Dave’s coconut soy cheese cake with cashew crust. Good! Not too sweet. Too sweet would have awaken my sugar beast. After we had dessert we saw Patty Larkin at the Stone Soup Coffee House. Awesome night!
Here is my 10 day summery-I lost 13 pounds-today I am filled with energy and looking forward to eating more healthy food. Tomorrow I am going to start adding seeds, nuts, beans, and legumes to my eating plan. I guess I am going to be somehow-please shoot me…kind of a Vegan…Yes I said it. Vegan. Those healthy happy people with the glowing skin that I have been making fun of for all these years. What? They can never eat anything, they make going out to eat and throwing dinner parties a pain in the ass and they have the nerve to be skinny and happy most of the time. They are asking for it! Anyways why would sane normal people give up Ice cream, meat, and sugar? I finally know the answer! Because it feels so fricking good! Being healthy is 100 times the rush of a sleeve or Oreos and the buzz lasts all day.
Starting on Monday I am adding in exercise and figuring out the new eating plan.
