Hey, it did happen again! I failed or did I? I am finally at that stage of my life when I am ready to change my mind and my philosophy at how I look at things. I will not go into my usual 3 pages of detailed chains of events. Last night was both fun and disasterous at work. First, I havent had any qualityu sleep lately. Yesterday we had a huge departmental Holiday lunch. This time it was an extended staff meeting! And I did manage to be the only one not eating anything while people pigged out on everything and anything. I couldnt eat none of that food, because I was on my liguid protein shake diet and number two even quality portein was fried in breaded stuff. So it was challenging to say the least. I mean challenging indeed. From few days ago I only had to listen to few people bitch about me not having one cookie, but this time, since it was extended staff meeting, th bitching was extended as well. I mean whats with people having a problem with other people being different. Yes, I am weird, I told one lady. Yes, I am spooky, I told another. Yes, I am on that freaky dangerous Atkins diet I told the third. And yes, I have no problem eating this way despite the fact that animals have to be slaughtered for me to be fed that way I told the fourth. Until I couldnt be honest any more and did what most if us guys do when push comes to shove. We lie! I hate to lie, but at times i feel it is a viable option to hush an annoying woman. Its that or a nice, passionate kiss. Since I couldnt kiss all those annoying caring women, i had to start lying and annoying them back. Hey, cant help it. I am gemini, and can be the biggest pain in the butt. So I said to myself the very next person starts lecturing me on merits of merits of my diet or that it is impolite and antisocial to not eat where everyone else does, i will tell them.... And I did! I finally had it with people who cant take a clue or a thousands clues that at times I care about what people have to say and at times its time to back a hell off ladies! So I after another question from my boss this time about how my extreame nature gets me in trouble and how I have to be more moderate, including my diet I said outloud " Listen guys, I really do appreciate your concern and care for my health and my sanity, but I have hemoroids that will be removed tomorrow and I am in for an enema appointement so i am on all liguid diet to make sure when I do my enema cleansing and then it was silence..... I should have put it on youtube, i swear I could have made money out of it. It was like a frozen scene and people had parts of sandwitches still in their mouths and frozen in that position. Silence it was! Then my boss finally smiled and said Vadim have you ever heard of TMF? I said heard of what? She said TMI - too much information. I was, what? And I told her, hey have you ever guys heard of TMA? She said what? I sadi too much advices! She smiled again and said you are fired! I wasnt smiling but she was. It was a joke on her part. To make a short story long, the party was soon over and I held my ground again. I did absolutely fine all night until....... Until late night. I am in charge of all entertaintment programs on campus. And that includes intramural basketball tournament. I wont have into all the details but we had a big fight during a game between one of the medical student and a university police officer who is playing in the league. We allow employees to play with students. Needless to say it was a mess. I had to intervene, calling police and documenting everyhting. It was a huge stink, considering its a state university.Everything was fine in the end, they boht shook hands and got suspended for a year from the league. But when I finally came home, I was both exhausted and emotionally drained. So I decided to consciusly mind you give myself a cookie that I secretly took from my boss table. I really wanted to try it for some reason. After all she baked it with love for so many reasons. Yes, i was a big woes! The cookie tasted like..... Ok, imagine your best ever sexual experience with the person you were madly in love. Ok, that cookie compared to all the others I ate in my life tasted like mastyrbation would be compared to the best sex with the most loved person. It was cookie version of masturbation in sex. It was only good enouph to get by and satisfy a craving! Ok, may be TMI like my boss said. But that masturbation cookie led me to make love to real sweet junkie, you know how you women are attracted to bad boys, I am attracted to the worst bad boys of nutritional world. So there I went making love to ice cream, pasta, and few more real cookies. I was eating ice cream like it was my woman who I was in love with. And you know what, no regrets here. I did it, I did it consciously and I wont do it again for a long time now! I was trully enjoying every leak of that ice cream. It wasnt like the usual scarf it down in one bite. No, it was indeed making love. I was slow, and deliberate. Every bite and every leak was passionate and heart warming. Ok, you get the picture. So I am back to square one! But this time I will keep my pormise and end this challenge. Will I call it a failre? No. Failure it wasnt. It was an expeince! Not by age but by experience do we get wiser! I did manage to stay with the plan during very challenging times for 3 days! So I can easily do it. But the challenge is over as I promised. So now its back to no challenge. I will follow my nature and go along with it instead of resisting it. I love freedom, not restriction! There is a reason I am not yet married! ok, that was a bad joke, never mind! Its like peeing in the wind and gettign upset at the wind for getting wet! So no more challenges, just sane low carb eating! Ok, guys ubtil we meet again, my menu is next! I must be honest with you all, you are my comrades in battles!
