Food digest continued:
- Lunch was a small bowl of cooked steak with onions and green peppers.
- Afternoon snack was another small handful of cashews, pistachios, and two slices of swiss cheese.
- Dinner consisted of a salad: romaine, iceberg, radicchio, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and gorgonzola crumbles, and a healthy helping of London Broil
- Dessert – None, though I made a bowl of (very tempting) ice cream for my son, I chose not to have any.
My brain continued to feel sluggish throughout the afternoon. I remember feeling this way the first few days I was on Atkins. It has made it difficult to be productive, though I have felt rather creative today.
For recreation (aka exercise), I spent about 30 minutes throwing the football around with my son. He’s got a pretty good arm most of the time, though he did have me doing some running tonight.
The day is coming to a close on a positive note. I’ve successfully avoided my normal dietary pitfalls and my head is no longer throbbing, nor is it feeling foggy. I feel positive about not only the diet, but also my writing about my experience.
Day 1 down! 20 more to go.
