Day 158: Dinner halfway across the metropolis

Day 158

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I did not plan any workout today as I had a dinner engagement with my friends from university. From work, I commuted halfway across the metropolis from the southern edge (where I live and work) to near its centre, going through three vehicle changes including a ruck through a sardine-packed metro station. But I got there in one piece ahead of schedule, one and a half hours after I left the office.

I ate clean healthy meals throughout the work day. For dinner, I suggested that we go to a Greek restaurant, and I had lamb gyros with just water. The serving size was just right; if it were a huge serving (like a lot of restaurant food I see in Australia), I might have been compelled to finish off everything so as not to let good food go to waste! Afterwards, I enjoyed a blueberry cheesecake (yummy, one of the best ones I’ve had) for dessert, so I can’t consider this last meal to be an ideal one, but still it’s within my target of up to 4 “exception” meals a week (this is just my first).

It was great meeting with my friends again, and conversation was varied. At some point, someone mentioned reading something on a blog, and they asked me if I had one. I told them yes, but I wasn’t sure if I should let them see it yet (only 2 of my offline friends know of this blog!). Later on, I thought to myself, maybe I should let them know; the more accountability the better! So I wrote my blog address down and handed it to them. Who knows what they’ll say?

I got back home just at the stroke of midnight, so need to get to sleep now as tomorrow is another work day (glad our work time is flexible!) I haven’t gotten over my cold yet so more sleep is better for recovery.

Eat right, train hard, and expect success!

  1. Hey Ron, so glad you had fun with your friends…and that dessert sounds fab. Whip by Shari´s blog if you can as she´s in need of some Shredder TLC.

  2. I never had Greek food. No Greek restaurants where I live. Look forward to see where your training leads in you in the new year. Hmm I miss PI, my wife says it is the best time of the year.
