DairyKing's Journal, 16 May 2013

Today I forgot that the General Manager was hosting a recognition luncheon at Avanti's for those that were involved in the flood contingency and recovery operations. I brought my lunch. They had a buffet set up in one of the conference rooms - gondola subs, pizza and salads. This just wasn't fair. If I could have ordered from the menu, I saw there was some pretty good looking Caeser Spinach Wraps. No joy. I did well, but I have to say that I did not enjoy going without. I had a lettuce salad and a 6 inch sub that just had some cheese, deli sliced ham and salami on it. It was the least fattening offerings in the place. The pizza looked great, and you all know that pizza is my nemesis. One of the team members sitting next to me had these square thick pizza slices stacked 6 inches high on his plate. I could have eaten that like "Man versus Food." Brought my lunch home; will try again tomorrow. I weigh in tomorrow morning for Fatsecret and my Division Challenge. I actually was 0.5 lbs. below target this morning, but that's no guarantee that I will make it in the morning. We'll have to wait and see; maybe I'll have to run around the block a few times.

I dropped my Blackberry yesterday, and wouldn't you know it - no worky anymore. Unfortunately, I dropped it in the water. My worthless carrier insurance would gladly furnish me with a refurbished one for my $99 deductable. Wow, what a deal! Not! I've been a customer with these guys for over 15 years, and they couldn't tell me that my insurance wouldn't replace the phone for free. Ughh! I could of course upgrade and get the same model for $179.00 plus processing fee of $30 for a 2 year contract extension. I bought a trackfone yesterday that worked just fine for $29.00. Unfortunately, I have 500 contacts on my other phone that doesn't work and the only way I can get that info back is to get a new phone and restore my backup. They got me. So, I have a Droid Razr coming via FedEx tomorrow evening. I really didn't want a full touch screen, but I guess I better get with the program. I think I would have just stayed with the tracfone if I had recorded all my contact info somewhere where I could have accessed it. So much for paperless electronic technology! Anyway, I probably fumed off a few hundred calories over all that.

Hopefully the weigh-in will go well. I told them no more adjustments. It is what it is. If I don't make goal, I'm paying up and I'm going to keep going until I do. In the past if nobody made it, they readjusted the target. We were getting too lax.

Anyway, here's wishing everyone a wondamous evening and a better day tomorrow. Toodles!

Well done, on passing on the pizza. You deserve to achieve your weigh in tomorrow, for that alone. :-)

Nice job skipping the pizza - settings like that are some of the hardest. And that really stinks about the phone. Mine is the same, I don't know why I even bother paying for the insurance when I still have to pay $99 for a new phone. I keep saying I'm going to cancel it and don't. Anyways, once you get the hang of it I'm sure you'll like the Droid Razr. Hard to get used to touch screens at first but they are really good nowadays compared to the first touch screens that were impossible to use. GOod luck with the weigh in!

I have a droid razr max and I really like mine. Gets great reception and usually picks up 4G when no one else's will. Our insurance is the same but I still love Verizon
