Started off behind - I had the a..m. and p.m. correct for the time on my clock but not on the alarm part so it didn't go off and I had to jump up out of bed, had no time to make coffee, and flew out the door and ate one of my protein bars on the way to work. I took water so had 6 of my 10 waters while on the route. For lunch I had two of those little bags of peanuts that you can buy for 2/$1 (I do that a lot, if the peanut crop ever fails, I'm dead). I got a subway salad on the way back to the motel and that was supper. If I get hungry later I brought some Atkins Shakes with me.
A thought occurred to me as I was driving. My meal allowance is $20 - $25 per day. There was a time when I would have felt like I had to spend all of that to buy food whether I wanted it or not. Today's allowance would include the two cases of water I bought to drink and for coffee, the $1 for the peanuts, and the $6.36 for the subway salad. The water was about $8. It does not bother me a bit that I have about $10 left and it will be more left tomorrow because there won't be the $8 for water.
We had to stop and pick up money from two different places - Garda and Brink's. At Garda Jarrod (the guy I drove who replenishes the ATM's) got out and got a pump shotgun to stand guard while I backed the armored van into the Garda garage. There was another man inside the garage with a big shotgun. The security at Brink's was not quite at that level but Jarrod has a big weapon that makes my 38 look like a squirt gun. We almost had $2,000,000 in the van.
I brought some DVD's for exercise but there is about 0 floor space in this room.
Hope everyone is experiencing success. This is a tough week and slip-ups can start to snowball on us - remember to HALT!!
Don't get too hungry
Don't get too angry
Don't get too lonely
Don't get too tired
Remember the water and the exercise and the journaling (haven't I heard that somewhere before?)
I am considering starting another blog about religion and politics. Two taboo subjects. I have slipped and addressed some issues here so I decided to have a blog dedicated to that because these are two hot button topics and I think we need to stick to weight loss and support here.
