The Last Harrah!

The diet starts this week.

Anyway it was the last harrah this weekend.  I let myself go crazy with a mini chocolate and ice cream binge in addition to some of my favorite foods.  Friday night I had prawn fried rice at Busaba with some schoolmates.  The company was great.  The food tasted yummy at the time but I woke up in the wee early hours feeling sick to my stomach – so I guess I won’t be going back to Busaba for awhile.

Saturday night was Vietnamese with the Italians.  Once again good food and company.  The restaurant was a bit cramped and very loud.  And after we’d been seated for a good ten minutes the waiter came over and asked us to move so that he could break up the table we were at into two for a new party that had arrived.  That was only mildly annoying.  Also, he seemed distracted the whole time.  I get that it was busy but I kind of wanted him to figure out a way to tune out the noise and focus on one table at a time.  Anyway, the food was decent.  I had a lamb curry with egg fried rice.

Sunday morning I got up and made pancakes from scratch again.  This time I added bananas and blueberries and boy were those puppies yummy!  I must admit I burned the bacon a bit but to be fair I never said I was great at making bacon.  I will surely miss pancakes and sausage and bacon and syrup these next six weeks.


Sunday night there was a BBQ and I had more yummy sausages and hamburgers.  Surprisingly I didn’t drink as much as I thought I would.  Probably because I’d eaten so much food.  But I did allow myself two cups of soda.  It was Coke Life.  I have no idea what Coke Life was supposed to be but it tasted good.


Now the fun part begins.  Salads and protein shakes and bootcamps.

Let’s see how I do these next six weeks.

Wish me luck!
