Face the Music Monday

208.8!  That was a completely unexpected surprise.  We are currently in the upswing of a new school year/semester and the stress level at home/work has ratcheted way up.  And well, you know, I eat when I’m stressed out.  Or at least I’m more likely to eat all the lovely caloricly (sp?) dense food stuffs I can find.

Days like today have been known to drive me to down a whole pint of B&J all by my lonesome.  mmmmm.  Phish Food.

And yet, today, I did not touch the snack food or the homemade cookies that folks brought into work.  So to recap:  Cookies 0  Delaney 1.



So tomorrow I head off to my first vacationing adventure while on still-unnamed-diet. I’m hitching a ride to the coast with my dad as JD won’t be able to join us until later and I don’t want to take two cars. I’m a little worried because while on the one hand it is very easy to eat separate meals from most of those my family will be eating, simply as a function of time, those meals that we will be expected to share will be characteristically full of the densely caloric options. Even more of a challenge will be the limitations on alcohol consumption. It is very easy for me to go from 2 to 4 beers without thinking about it. Of course drinking isn’t exactly a thinking man’s sport. And man, do I get snacky. Any advice on managing this particular vice is greatly appreciated.

I foresee a lot of “asides” in the next week.

Now, to pack.
