Well, I gave in.. Partly out of a desire to see some of the outside world, and partly out of the knowledge that I had insufficient food to keep me busy here, and that a failure to eat anything would be looked upon unfavourably by my body. Starvation is not an appropriate response.
It’s been ten days since I last ate a chocolate bar or equivalent, and I feel rather good about that. To be honest, diet wasn’t necessarily part of the equation at all – the idea originally was to spend more time getting fit (which I’ve started to do), and let the diet take care of itself while I burn off the calories. The chocolate ban was just an added bonus (or rather a necessary component for any of it to work).
But you know what? Subway isn’t that good.. I don’t know if it was just this particular meal, or a general feeling about their food in general, but I’m not at all excited about it any more. I came away from that meal thinking “meh”, without even finishing it completely. That is the extent to which I am disinterested in their offering. And if I do find myself wanting it tomorrow, then it probably points towards some insidious addictive agent, in which case I definitely shouldn’t get one.
Either way, no Subway in the near future, I don’t think. That’s quite a good outcome :o)
