This second week has been all out annoying. I have honestly tried all day to find a way to put a positive spin on it, but gave up when I weighed myself at the gym this afternoon. By the second week of the diet, you lose almost no weight and you’re tired of the same meals over and over again. I’m greatly looking forward to eating a “real” dinner tomorrow night.

Having the power go out on you first thing in the morning is not condusive to eating a hot breakfast. Our power went out at 5am this morning. A substation blew. The power was back on by 10am, but by that point we had left the cats with lots of water, closed all of our shades to conserve the temperature and headed up to my office. The grill lady in our cafeteria actually makes a really good omelette for breakfast. Plus side, Sean finally got to see the inside of my office building after a year of me working there. Down side, we got to wake up 20 minutes late this morning because we didn’t have an alarm clock to assist us in the matter. Oh well, life goes on. Our house is currently cool and power once more flows.

Not much more to say. I’ve bemoaned the ups and downs of the diet. It’s been a great experience. I mean, I lost over 5 and a half pounds. That’s a good thing. Clothes fit much better as a result. It’s the first step in the right direction for me. Next time, I think I’m going to modify it to consist of a week instead of two weeks. In the mean time, Sean and I have developed better eating habits and we’re becoming happier with ourselves. That’s what’s most important right now.
