Eating in shape

(sigh) already I’ve broken my New Years vow of not going to buffet-style restaurants. Twice. Actually, I’ve made no such vow, but thought it interesting that I got a chance to check out two (somewhat) new restaurants in town. The first was Masala Bay, a neat Indian place with a nice buffet lunch. It’s got some neat vegetarian options, some interesting deserts, and a really nice atmosphere. You’d think we had enough Indian places in town, but this one’s definitely a good addition.
The other place is this all-you-can-eat (with some provisions) sushi place on Northfield in Waterloo — Yummiyaki Sushi. For $17.95, you can eat as much as you want to from their special menu in the span of an hour-and-a-half. They actually had to stop offering sashimi because people were taking them to task on the whole deal. Needless to say, the veggie options are there, but I question the worth of the whole deal, as a vegetarian. Otherwise, you can pretty much eat until you’re sick. It’s also got a neat twist to it: it’s one of those “Take all you can eat, but you must eat all that you take” sort of deals, and you can’t do what we all love to do in typical buffet restaurants — namely, waste food.
So I started back up at the gym. Luckily my pre-X-mas training hasn’t left me, and I was able to pick up where I left off. Even increased my resistance level, and my recovery time was also reduced. That’s always a good sign. Makes me feel like I’m actually getting results.
