So I’m sitting here at 1:30am feeling absolutely stupendously good (just had 6oz of Soylent about 45 minutes ago… sooooo invigorating!) and I notice some “happy birthday” emails coming in from various companies. My birthday is in about a week and while I’m not really big on birthdays being anything particularly special (for myself anyway), I do like to take advantage of freebies whenever I can! =)
So in the past that has usually meant, at least, breakfast at Denny’s (I don’t eat the grand slam breakfast but my gal will, so she actually gets the freebie but since we’re a family, it’s kinda all the same). But now I just got emails from Jamba Juice for a free small smoothie, and Cold Stone Creamery for a buy one get one ice cream.
I’ve been a somewhat regular patron (at least 5 or 6 times a year, mostly in summer) of Jamba Juice for ages, and while I don’t have ice cream very often I certainly do like it. But here I am so thoroughly enjoying my new “Soylent lifestyle”… what’s a boy to do?? LOL
I guess I’ll probably let myself have essentially a “cheat day” and just throw caution to the wind. It will actually be quite interesting to see how I feel after much more of a typical pre-Soylent type of eating day. Oh and let’s not forget the possibility of birthday cake! I’m expecting that I’ll feel overly full and probably have quite the sugar spike/crash, and that I won’t skip a beat after and just go right back to Soylent, business as usual. Ahh such high quality problems…
