As promised, dinner tonight WAS utterly lavish and decadent, and I have a ton of sushi in the fridge here at work as a result. I even drank alcohol, which is rare for me! Had two cosmopolitans, and the first one was just the perfect combination of cranberry juice and alcohol. The second was also good, but not perfect like the first. There were five of us at the table: my uncle, his friend/broker (J.), another man who is both my uncle's friend and the broker's colleague (B.), and another woman who is friends with B. (C.). We had a marvelous time, and all of us ate WAAAAAAAY too much. And they had flourless chocolate cake on the menu, so we ordered it for dessert, and it was out of this world. I'm sure it had dairy in it, but with an evening like tonight, I wasn't going to worry about that!
I'm now back on track with the diet/fitness regime, and will probably work out every day for the next several days to get back on track AND be in good shape for the next splurge for Passover.
I slept from 10am to 5pm today, and then left my place by 6pm, drove an hour south to meet my uncle and the gang, brough him back this way after dinner, and then took him back to the hotel, which was 20 miles west of here, and then had to come back the same 20 miles and go 5 miles north to get to work. I covered over 100 miles getting to and from dinner, at least 40 of which was just running my uncle back to the hotel. Made it to work with 10 minutes to spare.
Between the sushi, the alcohol, and the dessert, I am incredibly thirsty tonight, and I'm sucking down the water like crazy to help flush this stuff out of my system. Will also be taking deflect and lots of other supplements to deal with what I put into my body tonight. It was worth it, though!
Besides, it could be worse - I could be eating Twinkies and Ding Dongs all the time, right? : )
