Here we go. It's the first day of the 2012 Vegan Month of Food. I still am not quite sure what I will be making tonight for dinner. But, in addition to celebrating the VeganMoFo, I am also quitting Diet Coke for a month starting today. I don't know if I'll make it through the month without succumbing to the wiles of DC, but I will certain give it all I've got. I want to know if it would make a great difference in my weight loss if I gave it up. I have had several people say that it will indeed. So, I'm giving Diet Coke the old heave ho. I will do anything to feel better. Of course, one reason I'm feeling fairly good today is I had corstisone shots in my knees last Thursday. It takes a few days but now I'm walking quite well and feel good. Hopefully, I can do some water aerobics this evening after a nice dinner.
Wow. Feels like a lot of changes on the way. Not really, but it seems like it. Amy and I considered Potato and Leek Soup, because we have a bag of the vegetables in our fridge. I suppose we could do that. It's cool enough for soup, and I think it would be tasty. I could stop by Food Lion and get a Pan Bigio bread loaf to go with it. Maybe I can get Brian to start it before I come home. I don't see why he couldn't do that. We could add some beans for extra protein. I think I might be the only person who doesn't worry about where we're going to get protein. I think we eat quite a bit of protein, actually.
Update: I'm staying home this evening, but I definitely still feel good. And the shepherd's pie we made really hit the spot.
