Air Miles Flown with a Nasty Head Cold = 2,832
I got a call from my boss over the weekend telling me that I needed to fly to Houston on Monday, even though it was the President's Day Holiday. Unfortunately, I was sick, so being in a pressurized metal tube and hurling halfway across the country did not make me feel better. But, I survived.
Buffalo Wings Eaten = 8
When I arrived in Houston, I needed something to eat to tide me over to dinner. At the bar, I noticed they had Buffalo wings. It seemed to me that as long as I was feeling sick, something spicy would help my throat and sinuses, so I gave it a shot. The wings at the bar at the Hilton Americas in Houston are pretty good. A generous serving, well-seasoned with typical buffalo sauce flavor. The menu claimed that they were 'honey glazed,' but I didn't really get that when I ate them. Medium spicy, with carrot and celery and a somewhat thin bleu cheese dressing on the side. Pretty good, though they're nothing special. I was not able to get a decent photo of the wings, for some reason. Maybe because I wasn't feeling well. Sorry, folks, this is the best I could do with the wings.
Pounds Lost = Approximately 4
I haven't posted a weigh-in recently, but I happened to have my camera nearby when I stepped on the scale this week. The last time I stepped on a scale, I was roughly 194 pounds. Maybe it's because I've not been eating much, but I suspect that not drinking has something to do with it. Which brings me to...
Days Without Booze = 5
I stopped drinking on Sunday when I started to feel sick. I'm assuming that I won't drink tomorrow or Saturday, either, which will bring me to a solid week. That counts toward my weeks for the month, but maybe I should just continue on and do a full month without booze. We'll see if I start to feel better.
Daily Photos Taken, Monday-Thursday = 4
Friday's not over, yet, but I've taken a picture each day this week. You're lookin' at 'em, by the way. Again, apologies about the photo of the wings. I'll try to do better next time.
