OPERATION JON GETS FIT: DAY 84 F'n SWEET TEA!
Tuesday, November 23, 2010
I have been traveling for work alot more then normal these last couple of months. Now, traveling has both ups and downs. As I mentioned before it's easy to focus on working out and, for me, easy to eat well. No family distractions, no lawn to mow, to garbage to take out. No outside work distractions, just the single client problem, and that's it.
Well in Atlanta looks like I was able to rock the scale. When I got home it looked like all the work had been a failure, but the following week I saw a 4 pound drop so it seems my weight lose is on time delay.
I am now in Raleigh, and let me tell you, this is a whole different animal, days have been long so no real time to work out. And this people in NC, can they eat. Today, for example was Abysmal! Breakfast was Waffle House (which we don't have at home and was told I must do once.) Lunch was a restaurant that specializes in "Country cooking" fried chicken, biscuits, and fried okra ( i love okra, also cannot get at home). Dinner was wings at Hooters...what can I say? scantily clad women can get me to eat almost anything.
The kicker though, the really BIG problem ... the F$ckin sweet tea. Yeah I said it and I'm sorry ladies if my salty language offends, but for crying out loud with the sweet tea. I spent alot of time in Arkansas as a kid, and I have an unnatural love for sweet tea. Also, it's something living in the northeast is NOT everywhere. So when I walk into every restaurant and they are like "Ya'll want some sweet tea"...yeah I do. THEN THE FRIGGIN TOPPER! "Oh, ya'll want that to go?"
What is that?, no where else I've ever been offers up a to go cup to end a meal. Where I live, you pay your bill, you finish whatever beverage you have and you leave. Nto in the southern states, these people are like "Oh, ya'll want some liquid Dia-beetes to go?"
That is all.
