Today was filled with meetings: BP, the agent, etc. They all went on so long, I actually missed a meeting although we did not have a confirmed time.
BP is recovering, but he’s not well. We had a good meeting and I am interested to see what develops.
He reminded me that the big annual show is coming up in a couple of weeks. For the first time, I may be attending it. If I go, it will be rough on the diet. I hope that our local business associate will have more to think about than ordering my meals and wine and insisting on multi-course wine-fueled bacchanals for lunch and dinner. (You cannot turn down a meal from the owner of the restaurant. I once ordered salmon at an Italian place he owned. This was years ago and I still have to hear about it. Plus, he owns lots of restaurants, so it is not like I can avoid eating in one of them. He makes the rounds of all of them and comes over to the table — if he is not already with us — and begins ordering more and more and more.)
Seriously, every trip I gain 5 pounds. It’s insane. That’s with my insistence that we walk everywhere within about a 3 mile radius. This will be my first time there in over a year, so it will be my first time since I have been low carbing. Perhaps I will be able to resist and decline without causing offense.
I showed BP a copy of my resume that I had prepared for my agent and my job search. It had not been my intention, but we were outlining something and I had the list in my new functional resume. He kept trying to take the resume, but I kept taking it back from him. The man does not need my resume. He just needs to pay my damn bills. $@#^@%$$! He was not mad about the resume, but he did tell me that I did not need it. Blah, blah, blah.
Still, I felt amazing all day long. It was a great day.
I started running errands early and everything went my way. E’s bank did not charge me $5 for cashing the check there (I needed to deposit the cash). I was flirted with by random men. I was in the same physical space as X and did not have to interact with him at all. I may have found a spot for BP to lease or buy to create the stupid night club he wants to put here. I assembled a very chic outfit from bullshit in my closet. Heck, even A stopped by between my errands and my meetings, and it’s always great to see him.
Best of all, I saw two new ads my brother did for a new campaign and I laughed aloud at each. I am very, very proud.
I should have bought lottery tickets or something.
Weight Gain — 0.6 pounds
My weight it up today and it will be up again tomorrow. It’s eating damn restaurant food. My body fat is down.
Food Intake — Yikes.
Yikes. I have no idea. I had a steak salad at the salad place downtown (balsamic vinaigrette and steak with corn and black beans — didn’t eat the whole thing by any stretch of the imagination). I had 3 oz of pork ribs and at least 4 oz of beef brisket at the barbecue spot. I had a wee bit of barbecue sauce because I love it and a sip of beer.
For breakfast, I ate um, almonds. Really. Post-errands and pre-meetings, I had about 1/4 cup of kefir and some grilled vegetables. I need to do a better of job of eating, but I was not feeling 100% this morning.
The scale will be ugly tomorrow. What can you do? From time to time, I need to eat out. I ate mostly on plan. My carbs were still relatively low, although the barbecue sauce did not help, nor did the carbs and black beans. Eh, live and learn. I am guessing I will be up at least one more pound tomorrow.
