Today was a good day and a good test of my willpower.  We went to Golden Corral (funny, since I wrote it a goodbye letter recently) because it has been on the menu for longer than I’ve been changing my life.  I did great, though, I feel!  I knew what to eat, how much of it to eat, and what to avoid.  I didn’t get tempted by the ice cream or pie or cake even though I would have loved some.  I stuck to proteins and salad.  Who’s proud of me!?

My wife and I also started the Stronglifts 5×5 program for our weightlifting.  Started off pretty easy for me but I will follow the instructions and do what I am told!  Also continued into week 2 of the C25K program.

Snack: Carbmaster Strawberry and Pomegranate yogurt and a cheese stick
