Do it anyway!

That is essentially the message for Day 3 of the 100 day weight loss program.  To be successful in the long term, sometimes you have to do the things you don't feel like doing.  Exercise.  Eating your veggies.  Not having wine with dinner. Or whatever.  Patently I've never had a problem with exercise.  To the contrary, tend to over do it.  I do have a problem with portion size and with snacking, so at least for today I will be sure to enjoy smaller portions of what I like, to eat it slowly and to avoid any mindless or even mindful snacking.

As I had anticipated, the food at the country club last night (way out in the burbs) was totally blah:  a plate with a grilled sliced vegetables.  Really?  They couldn't think of anything more exciting?  No starch  (I had to ask for some rice), no protein.  Institutional type cooks have no imagination and no clue:  someone is a vegetarian ergo he or she eats vegetables.  The only redeeming feature of the meal: it wasn't drenched in olive oil.  Also the bread roll and salad was pretty good!

This am:  6 miles easy run @ just over 10-minute pace with the dogs
Breakfast:  oats with soy milk, slice of w/w toast with Marmite, small slice of baked tofu.

Weight this morning:  170 lbs
Body fat percentage:  24% - drat
