Music: Fun – “Some Nights”
I’m down six pounds so far. As much as I hate calorie counting, the bloody method works. There have been so many times the last little while that I’ll think to cook something or order something while at a restaurant and think, “Man, now that sounds good.” But when I go to look up the calories, it turns into “Oh, hell no!” It kills me that so many things are high in calories. Why, oh why, can’t delicious things be low in calories? I love food about as much as food loves my hips. It’s a cruel thing.
Went down to Newnan today to do something shopping and other errands. While my wife was doing her thing, I dropped into a newer Starbucks nearby that’s sort of hidden away. From the front, it doesn’t look all that big. Given the cars in the drive-thru, I just figured they did most of their business through that. When I stepped inside, I was surprised to see that it was actually spacious. They had plenty of bar seating, a large table at the center and plenty of single person tables lining the back wall. Not only did the place look nice, so were the staff! They were all authentic smiles and jovial with each other. It’s night day compared to my local place. It’s too bad it’s all the way down in Newman, else I’d be back far more often.
I am still working on my food database. It’s been quite a bit more work than I thought. It’ll be worth it when I get it done, but it’s a pain in the butt so far. Getting it finished is my goal for the weekend. I’m also thinking of tweaking my food diary a little more too. I’m not a perfectionist, I swear.
On that note, I’d better get back to it before I have to go pick up my wife.
