Three weeks of watching what I eat and exercising = 6 pounds lost
One long holiday weekend = 5 pounds gained
Could be worse at least I'm still one pound to the good. I have a shocking new flash for anyone else out there trying to lose weight at a doctors orders. Mexican food, Barbecue, and beer are not diet foods.
Here is a rundown of my weekend.
Friday I took in the latest Pirates movie.
Saturday I worked eight hours, okay I showed up and stayed eight hours. i won't lie and say I did much in the way of actual work. Afterwards I attended a graduation party in honor of a friend's daughter where I indulged in mass quantities of fajitas (chicken and beef), queso dip, numerous Shiner Bocks and a couple of shots o' tequila. This is where probably added four of those five pounds back.
Sunday again worked or as I like to call it mandatory attendance at the job site. Afterwards more Mexican food, at a different location followed by a wine tasting at a friend of a friends. actually my wife drank wine while I downed a few more Shiners. But in the spirit of the event I tried to hold my pink out to the side in a delicate fashion.
Monday, yes I put in my mandatory attendance and no not all postal workers get every holiday off. After work, back to the location of Saturday's party where we dined on leftover fajitas and barbecue ribs. But alas the Shiner was all gone so I had to resort to Bud Light.
On the writing front- Despite the rigors of the weekend I had a break through. Rewrote the beginning of my WIP (work in progress) and added a bit more spunk to my female protagonist. I feel like I'm back on the right track.
I also discovered this amusing tidbit this weekend. The twenty two worst places to live, not because of the way of life but because of the embarrassment on you return address. Check it out but I'll want you it's not for the faint of heart so if you shy away from strong language stay away.
So what is the strangest city name you've ever heard of?
