Ok, as I mentioned in No More Bagels (and Back Into Shape), all of the bagels I had in December have taken a toll and that I would make a point to eat slimmer in the new year.
A couple weeks in, I’m doing better but not great. I’ve has more hard boiled eggs, smaller portions and only had one bagel, and that was “scooped out” which gives eaters an illusion of it being acceptable.
So I weighed myself for a benchmark:
Ouch. I can’t recall ever being that heavy. Now it could be because 2014 was a year of consistent working out. And for a time I was having protein shakes. They say muscle weighs more than fat. I’m looking pretty good shirtless and flexing so maybe… maybe…
Or… it’s the bagels.
So, ugh, ok ok I gave in and I have a salad for dinner. Blech!
I mean, salads are ok, but it’s the principle of it all. “Salad” is a side dish, it’s not a meal. Like soup. Sorry, Jerry, Bania was right. .. soup’s not a meal.
And neither is salad.
But, unfortunately this might be a regular thing for me. I ordered this at a big deli. Spinach, chicken tomatoes, peppers, raisins, onions and ranch dressing.
REQUEST OF ANYONE READING: Can anybody offer up a better and TASTIER combination?
