Diet Log - October 14, 2008

Weighed in this morning at 180 pounds, down 3 pounds from yesterday.

I stuck to the beef jerky diet. Hey, I even took a two-mile walk with the dogs!

This morning, the wife tempted me by asking me out for lunch at Rodrigo's in Temecula. We have some "buy one get one free" coupons. I really struggled with this question. It's hard to resist their margaritas, chips and salsa, and all that cheesy mexican chow.

Conflicts started raging in head. First, I didn't want to deny my wife when she asks to spend some quality time together. But on the other hand, I'm on a diet! Second, we don't spend a lot of quality time because of my diet; I'm always sitting here eating jerky, or riding motorcycles with my friends. So, I start feeling guilty by saying "no" to her. But on the other hand, we've spent so much quaility time together over the last 20 years, which resulted in me getting up to as high as 240 pounds. I think it's ok that I spend a year or so, doing this beef jerky diet.

And then there's also the finances, we don't have all the money we used to have. These days, we're pinching pennies. But then again, we have those "buy one get one free" coupons. Again, conflicts.

So, she asked me again, and I said, "no, I'm trying to lose some weight". And she simply gave me a "ok" in a melodious tone, and went about her merry way. Sounds like she understands. But I guess that also puts me on notice that I still need to spend more time with her.
