Diet Update, January 14 — I don’t walk in cold rain

I woke up early, got dressed and was ready to head out when my phone rang — my walking friend was calling, which is weird.

“Sweetie, it’s raining,” she said.
“No, it’s not,” I replied.
“Look outside,” she told me.
I did. It was raining. “Damn!”
“It’s raining,” she repeated. “And it’s cold rain. No walking today.”

I don’t walk in cold rain. I don’t walk in any rain. I don’t walk when it’s freezing.
I barely need an excuse not to exercise. That comes naturally.

When I got off the phone, I toed off my shoes, plopped back onto my bed and slept for another hour or so.
No worries, though, because we agreed to go tomorrow (if it’s not raining). Of course, since I have an early meeting, we’re going at 5:30 am.

9 AM — breakfast was a wrap. Whole wheat tortilla, grilled ham & spinach, with sharp cheddar cheese. And, of course, my black tea.

2 PM — I had a luncheon, which means no healthy choices. Chicken parmesan with bread, followed by German Chocolate Cake. Yes, I could have opted not to eat the cake. For that matter, I could have decided not to eat the bread, but where’s the fun in that?

10 PM — dinner was an impromptu get-together at La Madeleine. A friend had a recent death in the family — her 18-year-old cousin died of Leukemia after an extended battle. Today was the first chance to get together and see how she was doing. All things considered, she’s handling it much better than I feared.

Food consumed included a cup of their yummy, and bad-for-you tomato basil soup. That stuff is so good. Sooooo gooooood, but so bad for you.
Of course, I also had three cups of real coffee today, including two at dinner.

All in all, today was a wash.
