Day 79 - Swine Flu

No, I do not have the swine flu.

Despite my rather creative name, Oinkstop, I do not have anything particularly porcine around my home. I do not collect pig memorabilia, nor do I raise them.

What I do seem to have is a case of gum flu.

I've been busy chomping away on a lot of chewing gum.

Well, by most people's standards, it's probably not much. I've only been using one serving per day, but I've been chewing and chewing and chewing. I chew until my jaw is tired and I have to stop.

But it's helping keep me out of temptation. By the time I give up one the gum for the day, my jaw is so tired that I don't really feel like eating anything.

But I guess it's helping. I've managed to stick to Cambridge shakes with nothing else since Monday.

Of course I found out today that I have to go to the neighbor's house for a birthday party on Saturday. I'm wondering how I'll manage to avoid the cake, the treats, and especially the beer. I've been told our host is planning Jello shooters, and I think that will be incredibly hard to resist.

We'll see how it goes. Maybe I'll just have to be honest with myself, since I know I probably won't be able to resist.

I keep telling myself even five or six good days out of seven isn't so bad. It's certainly better than seven out of seven days of bad eating.

It's all about balance. Get a killer workout, eat really low calories for breakfast, and PLAN for the Jello Shooters!
