For the second night in a row, I’m feeling hungry. My high school reunion is in 3 1/2 weeks and I want to lose a few extra pounds, so I’m trying not to eat so much. I still eat 3 meals a day with a snack and I still feel hungry.
I won’t even eat dessert. Today, a co-worker told me there was free ice-cream. I had to turn it down, saying I wasn’t going to have dessert for a month. He said that that is harder than abstinence. And he’s right.
It would be easier if I went to the gym and worked out, but my late hours make it too hard. Last night, I was determined to go to the gym after work. But by the time I arrived home, the exhaustion of the day fell upon me.
This weekend, I’m planning to go to the Best in the West Ribs Cook-off. I will have to break my resolution and eat a lot, including funnel cake. One consolation is I’ll have Sunday and Monday to work it off at the gym.
