Vegetarian Update

Day 4 of the Vegetarian challenge. No cheating and no I have not had Spaghetti every night. Eating plenty of veggies and feeling fine.

What did I really give up when I took on this challenge? Here is what I figure I've lost:
  • Wawa Turkey Hoagies
  • Horsham Pizza Cheesesteak
  • Pork Chops
  • Chicken Parm Pizza
So the Vegetarian Challenge should not be a problem.

Base Training

Got a simple 30 mile ride in today. Just cruising down the Schuylkill River Trail.

The NY Times had a great article about consistency, specificity in training and how it affects an athlete's physiology.

The Vegetarian Challenge

I am a fan of Tim Ferriss' blog and book.

The Four Hour Work Week.

His blog is all about lifestyle design and challenging the status quo. In the spirit of that I going Vegetarian from Sunday Nov. 25th to Dec. 24th.

I know its nothing Earth shattering but it should be fun.

In a similar vein, I have fallen in love with all things salsa. As a result, I have started also making my own salsa. It is a closer to Pico de Gallo than salsa at the but far more fresher and lots more spice.
