Signs it’s time to restart the diet:

  • The scale can’t decide what I weigh. (a.k.a. time to buy a new scale.)
  • One of my favorite comics has started a health thread, which is easy to join for support.
  • I was feeling guilty for having two Coca Colas earlier, so I decided to buy some water out of the vending machine, seeing as I should be drinking about 90 oz of water a day and I haven’t done so for… well… months. Instead of getting one 20 oz bottle of water, the machine spit out 2 bottles for the price of one.

Signs from above? Dunno. But it’s worth doing anyway.

Social circles and other tasks.

So yesterday (meaning Saturday) evening, we went out to dinner at Red Lobster with a friend from high school who I hadn’t seen in four or five years I think. I had an absolutely great time, ate too much, came home and wrote a little, then went to bed.

This morning, we got up relatively early (for us), so that we could go out to lunch with a friend from elementary school who I haven’t seen since June of 2004and her family. Once again I had a ball, and look forward to seeing them again in less than 17 months this time.

Around this, I talked to my folks a couple of times, and was invited out to eat twice by a friend who I see on a regular basis (she’s local). Also did some light shopping and watched the football game and spent five hours filing. (I was a little behind.)

My back is killing me, my sinuses are all screwed up (my fault), and I have eaten waaay too many things over the past two days that contain bell peppers, which apparently now that I’m almost 30, have decided they need to kill me. Despite all that and a tendency to overcaffeinate, I’m really, really happy right now.

I hope you are too.
