Scaled Back Eating

I gave into eating a lot of junk in the last month and a half - and gained 5 pounds while doing it.  Lots of pie and cookies and this, that and the other thing being shoved in my face.  Especially that caramel pecan turtle pie - oh my goodness.

I am not giving in now and it has nothing to do with New Year's Resolutions.  It's simply going back - a bit more extreme though to make up for what I have indulged in - to what I was doing before Thanksgiving hit and ever since then until New Year's.

I can't believe I let myself go like that.  Not anymore.  I didn't eat today until 3:30pm.  I didn't eat yesterday until late, either and have only eaten twice on both days.  It won't stop, either.  I can do without food.  I get hungry and eat, yes, but if I'm not hungry, I don't sit around and eat the "mindless" junk food.  Today was a fluke, though, I was looking for somewhere to stop and eat and there was nothing but garbage food available at whatever places a large truck can find a place to pull into.

I thought, "I'm hungry, time to stop".  Something else intervened and said: "Gee, and you want to be a 300 pound man, yes?"  Drove right on by those places and quelched the hunger desire with sheer, utter determination.  Yes, I am aware that quelched is not a word, but it should be, lol.  Funny thing? I wasn't morbidly hungry when I got home and ate a portion of a shrimp platter  and was full.

Later, I was offered a sloppy joe sandwich.  High calorie?  Maybe, but only 1? Notta problem.

It will be this way for a while, too.  I will decline whatever sugar or fat filled junk I am offered.

Hmm, time got away from me.

The hands free cell phone fiasco rages on.
I am asking other truck drivers if their company was prepared for it - so far all of them have said yes.  One of them stated he had to sign a form that states that he agrees not to use a hand held cellphone while driving his truck.
Our operations manager sent out an email advising us that he has ordered some sort of device for the trucks.  I have no clue, I am not up on bluetooth devices and what is used to make them work.

Whatever the case, the U.S. responded to Iran's statement, in a fashion that I would expect our nation's military to respond, something like swatting a fly.  Iran can send out all the ships it wants, how is that going to deter us?  Are they going to fire on one of our battleships?

I'm tired this morning.  Did not sleep well last night - makes for a looooong day at work.  Gag.


Decatur, Alabama. Got there last night - decided I didn't have enough hours to offload - about an hour and 15 minutes on the clock, tak...
