7 Levels of Ectasy

Last week I started a low-carb low-cal diet. I don’t want to hear anyone tell me about my diet, I KNOW my body well and I know what works for me. If eating lemons and saltwalter works for you, then I won’t say anything – You don’t make me do your diet and I won’t make you do mine.

So I am losing weight like a madman – 8 pounds in 4 days. I am running and drinking water and doing all the necessary things to lose weight and it is freakin’ working! Then Friday rolled around and we went to Akbar for lunch. Akbar is an all-you-can-eat Indian buffet. It is filled with all types of spicy sumptuous dishes that I thought I could resist (who was I kidding?) .

So I ate my fill of 7 different types of Indian delicacies and I sopped up all the sauce with some flatbread – “nan” – and I swore to myself that I was only going to eat carbs for that one meal. Ha Ha! I actually told myself that and believed it! I BELIEVED IT!

Later that night Cat and I went over to Girja and Manish’s place to hang. We watched “Must Love Dogs” and didn’t eat anything so we were all famished. We went to Jasmine on Beltline Richardson and it was PACKED. It is a Hookah bar that serves really good food and of course Hookah is all the rage right now, so much so that many people have forgotten all about Cigars, pipes, and quite possibly even marijuana – all things that were popular among the youth a few years ago. (And I always know what is popular with kids, I watch MTV.)

So we decide to order the food to-go and what do I get? I get a chicken wrap filled with spicy chicken and veggies in this delightfully zesty sauce as well as a plate of hummus – which comes with more flatbread. Yeah, the diet pretty much went out the door for the entire weekend.

How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions?
