I have a trainer at the gym telling me what to eat these days. It is a far departure from eating whatever I crave and whatever tastes good and whatever is cheap and convenient and whatever my favorite restaurants are serving. I might actually burn out on chicken breasts at this pace. If I consistently chose those over beef, turkey, or white fish, that would mean eating 24 ounces of chicken breast meat a day. If protien powder didn't come in a variety of flavors, I might burn out on that, too. A huge change in my lifestyle includes keeping fruits, greens, and yogurt around now. I eat bananas for breakfast anyway, but never in the quantity which I'm eating now. I'm cooking and washing dishes a lot more. I can't say that I'm saving any money, though. This is six meals a day! My metabolism is already in overdrive. I can't say that I feel better, because I'm always stuffed. And sticking to the diet is moderately challenging when traveling. Luckily, the Hilton I'm in now has a good room service menu. If Hilton did the cooking all the time, I could totally envision making this diet a lifestyle. Just leave the tray in the hallway? Okay!
I'm in Minneapolis and we're getting ready to move a big chunk of internet gear from one room to another. It's just a few OC192s. Some servers. Some switches. Some routers. Eh, we're ready. Internet access on cable modems in Minneapolis might be a little, uh, intermittent for a short time tonight. I tried to rest this evening, but ended up in the hot tub. Then, I watched some trash on TV. Anacondas is a terrible movie, but I couldn't stop staring. Hotel cable doesn't leave many choices. I could have watched a guy bread fish with crushed fried pork skins (chiccarones) to reduce carbs. Anacondas was less frightening.
