Happy Salad Day - Day 3

Wednesday is Salad Day at H3. The attendees talk about it like it is free candy day. There is a huge buffet. In honor of salad day, please check out this awesome link to a New York Times article The Minimalist - Recipes for 101 Simple Salads. Happy Salad Day!

Strategic Error of the Day
Despite having a sick child, we went to dinner with friends from out of town tonight. The are only in Atlanta for two days, and they have kids so they swore they weren't afraid of germs. I only see this person one or two times a year at most. The strategic error was not taking sick child out, but I was totally unprepared for how to order food at a pizza place (see Zucca in Decatur).

As noted below, I opted for house salad with balsamic dressing on the side and an order of meatballs. Because eating a meatball the size of your fist is way healthier than eating a slice of pizza.
No really, it is. If you believe that you will believe anything. Serving was two meatballs, and I only ate one. Way better than what I used to do.

And I ate cake. No apologies. It was good cake. But no regrets since I ate a fraction of the slice. I did pretty
good today. Proud of myself, and I'll do better tomorrow!

Exercise Journal
1 hr yoga with what's-his-name before work
30 minutes of walking after dinner
1 hr mowing the lawn (Yes, I'm counting this as exercise. I have a big yard and a walk-behind mower.)

Weird Weightloss Tip
Hang out with a 5 year old who has been throwing up all day and night. That is what my last 24 hours has been like. Another great appetite suppressant. On that note, happy eating and exercising!


  1. That weight loss tip will work every time!

  2. Agreed. It is very unhappy. Tomorrow I will provide a happy weight loss tip.
