So for my first cheat meal since beginning my training program at the beginning of August, I was going to have this box of sliders and order of baked fries.
Well, I could only manage to eat four of the sliders, and after one french fry I realized that something had happened to my appetite since starting on this journey: I didn’t much like french fries anymore.
So The Kid got two sliders and the fries, and I am perfectly happy going right back to my nutrition program.
Next cheat meal will be during my sabbatical three weeks hence, during my stopover in Portland, Oregon.
At the moment I am thinking about Pine Street Biscuits. Thoughts?
Mt. Charleston obscured, Red Rock Canyon below. It’s a warm, comfortable hotel room, but somehow I’d much rather be in a tent up there somewhere.
My wife thinks I am crazy. No doubt she is spot on.
Down 50 lbs after four months of training. I feel like Steve Rogers after he climbed out of the Vita-Ray chamber: younger, taller, stronger.
I wonder how I will feel after another year of this? Hopefully ready to take on some mountain trails…
This is what low blood-sugar looks like. Plus history.
Waiting to order our breakfast at the Outpost Cafe on US 395 and Route 66 in Hesperia, California.
Woke up this morning dreaming about hopping on the Pacific Surfliner down to San Juan Capistrano and having lunch at the Hummingbird, hanging out for the afternoon, catching an early dinner at Trevor’s on the Tracks, and hopping the Surfliner back home.
Or maybe just a day I feel like playing hookey…
The plans are starting to come together. Lots of reading, lots of writing.
This is where I am today. I’ll update shortly.
Well, they have got nothing on Hadas Streit.The senior vice president at the global public relations firm Allison + Partners recently returned from a one-month paid sabbatical, awarded to staffers after only five years at the company. During that time, she rented a house in Cape Cod for a couple of weeks.Streit, who is based in New York, swears she did not check her work email once.

So my colleauge Hadas Streit just finished her sabbatical and was featured in a Reuters article about our program.
Thirty-one days. No Email.
I am so ready. Like Hadas, I think this will be my first real time off in two decades.
