Paleo Diet Day 50: GF anniversary, New Year's Run, and final installment of series
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
2013 opened cold and grey in E. Washington. After staying up late last night to share the New Year's celebrations with 1 million of our closest friends in Times Square, a bacon & eggs & coffee breakfast worked wonders.
This was quite the day as it marks the one-year anniversary of going gluten-free. I have not been perfect but I'd put my "performance" at @95%. I am very grateful for having made this decision as I know from both feeling and my physical exam/blood test that this has helped me become healthier over 2012.
To mark the day I kept the "tradition" (two years = two connectable data points = a tradition) of doing a long New Year's Day run. I ran six miles on a country road between snow-covered wheatfields. I saw one hawk, four snowmobiles, and otherwise had the place and the time to myself. Great!
Eating is going well. Bacon & eggs for breakfast and Hungarian goulash tonight for supper. While it's cooking we're going to watch a new on-line documentary called "Sugar: The Bitter Truth" with Dr. Robert Lustig. Should be informative. I promise not to munch a chocolate bar while we watch! Here is the link:
This is the final installment of my "Paleo Diet" blog series - I made my goal of 50 days of public accountability. I plan to keep eating this way for a long time and will keep on sharing from time to time, but I figure the world has had its fill of my daily dietary choices for a while. I want to say THANKS to everyone who has taken the time to read and comment and encourage. I've made new friends, learned a lot, and received lots of inspiration from your comments. I'll be staying in touch!
