Straight is the Gate and Narrow the Way

The Way, friends, does not pass through your local Red Lobster.  It does not provide for a side-trip to JT’s Seafood Shack for the combo platter or the Fisherman’s Net for conch fritters.  The Way does not countenance mojitos, bottles of Bogle Phantom, Corona Extra or even Corona Light.

Unfortunately, I stepped off  The Way while on vacation this week and enjoyed everything above and more.

I’ve paid the price:  270.  Yes, that’s SIX (6) POUNDS gained.  In a week.  Ouch.  I’m chalking at least some of that up to MSG from last night’s farewell-to-vacation Chinese food.  General Tso clearly never encountered The Way.

As I promised my Lovely Wife, I will not beat myself up.  I will, however, do better.  I do NOT enjoy the extra tightness in my waistband, and as I may have mentioned before, I really, really, really hate fighting for the same ground over and over.

But the vacation was a blast.  I highly recommend you take one.

    Hey Harvey…’Shell here…totally agree with the “Lovely Wife”…don’t beat yourself up about this, you’ll be right back at it…BUT vacations are for doing things you don’t normally do. And for you, this is something that you don’t normally do.

    I would suggest that you go back to what you DO normally do and stay off the scales for two weeks. Then check back and see where you’re at.

    If things haven’t changed, THEN beat yourself up! LOLOL!! Hugs!

    Yarg. But I agree with Shell. You’re making a LIFESTYLE change, but your lifestyle isn’t to live at the beach on vacation. Game on.
