So much for that diet...

The Wednesday night games/poker group is happening again.

A number of the people who couldn't make it on a regular basis due to other commitments are now able to make it, plus with Kev being back in town again it brings the basic numbers up as well. So we are alternating games and poker each week.

So we were playing poker last night. Myself, Kevin, Will, Byron and Tanya.

We had been playing for about an hour or so, getting used to all the different games again, when Byron says "I suppose now is as good a time as any" and pulls a Freddo Frog Ice Cream cake out of Will's freezer. Since it was for my birthday I couldn't really say no, but it did kind of blow my diet out of the water.

Oh well, with friends like these...

I won't be sticking to the diet all that much today, because I am going over to Cleopatra's (draquin) place for a birthday dinner, just a quiet one with her, Scott and me (probably also the cyclone and the munchkin, but they are to be expected).

So, diet restarts again properly tomorrow, but I'm confident with the amount of food Light'n'Easy provides that I shouldn't have any problem with sticking to it.

Good luck to me!

Um... (how to say this without sounding odd? Meh, odd it is).

If you need a hand staying motivated with the losing weight thing, drop me an email or whatever. I stay around 75kg these days, which is technically a little heavy, but I used to weigh as much as 110kg, so this is a process I truly understand.

A small hint, if you're taking: I am aware that exercise is not really an option for you, but every little bit of movement helps. Hide the remote control, so you have to get up to change channels. If your back is up to it, stairs instead of escalators/lifts. Even one floor - even now I'm still in the habit; I might take the stairs to the next floor *then* get the lift. Don't underestimate the value of taking the stairs down, if up is out of the question. It still burns heaps more than standing still in the lift. That's basically how I lost all my extra weight. I walked some, and taking public transport all the time played a large part, but the rest was just doing things the "hard" way.

I mean, look at me. I'm hardly a gym bunny, or cut out for team sports. *grin*

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
