Easter is a huge deal in my family. We have a big Italian Easter brunch with my family and then dinner later in the day at my place with my wife’s family.
I planned my V-Diet to end on Easter. It was mty first day of transition. I didn’t do as well as I wanted, but not as bad as I could have.
The brunch features a lot of once-a-year specialties - various meats, pies, pastries, etc. This isn’t like eating dounts on a Sunday morning or even potato chips during the week or beer on the weekend cheating. This is more like have a taste of this great stuff now, or wait until next year to see it again.
So, in the morning I did not fill a plate. I picked on various pieces of “stuff” and to my surprise I was still full very quickly.
Dinner in the afternoon wasn’t bad: one piece of roast pork tenderloin, salad w/my home made vinaigrette, asparagus and fresh green beans. Problem was the 2 glasses of wine, followed by desert: chocolate cake, bunny cake, a cookie, and 2 small vodka tonics (diet tonic water of course).
Rather than NEPA, I jogged most of my 3.75 route and actually did some intervals - I sprinted on most of the diwn hill stretches, followed my a walking up hill and then more jogging on the flats.
I did not weight in, and I’ll be good on transition day-1 with all shakes except for lunch which will be left over collossal shrimp with asparagus, green beans, and maybe an apple.
