That’s the Sound of my Falling Off the Wagon

Location: In approach to London Heathrow

I forgot to call ahead about the food. Did I mention that I’m not nearly as disciplined at planning ahead as I hope to be someday? I didn’t plan to mention it, but I think I did. Sorry.

Anyway, so dinner on the plane… Pasta… good. Spinach… good. Cheesy gooey sauce… Haven’t put that in my body in like six months.

Breakfast on the plane… A danish. Period. That’s it. Well, and tea … I’m flying over the UK, so there’s always tea.

So, now the healthy snacks Faith packed for me are definitely making my morning. A banana never looked so good in my whole life.

Before I left, I committed that I wouldn’t record what I ate while away on this trip. After all, this trip is definitely going to be all about authentic Mediterranean food. YUM! So, instead of keeping my nutritional record, I’ll probably just put a big red X and footnote it with “1 cup olive oil”. I’m not sure my body is ready for this.

Net of this post… Pray for me that I don’t fall off the wagon, steal it, run a few folks over with it, and so forth.

Can you believe Faith said to me before I left, “I hope you’ve put on a few pounds by the time you get home.” I’ll take “Things I Never Thought I’d Hear in my Whole Life” for $800, Alex.
