Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with good support.
Emceeing the film festival went well tonight! Cindy accompanied me for the special evening.
I'm so grateful she and I found one another. It's insanely wonderful how much we have in common, in weight loss and plenty of other ways!
I intentionally tilted my food schedule again today to accommodate a late meal after the festival. I still left a few hundred calories on the table, but that's okay when it's this late!
I could have tilted it the other direction with an early dinner before the show, but I've never liked eating before a performance of any kind. It goes back to my standup comedy days.
I wasn't doing standup last night or tonight, I was simply the emcee, but anytime a stage, audience, and a microphone get involved, it brings back a flood of wonderful memories of those days long ago. It's fitting to get home and find a Tweet from Ralphie May's Twitter account. Whoever is handling Ralphie's Twitter since his passing, thank you!
Ralphie called @SeanAAnderson "the double wide roommate" when they lived tougher they were twinsies. For inspiration follow Sean and his "daily diary of a winning looser." You are an inspiration! https://t.co/Cr3Jgp9tFl— Ralphie May (@Ralphie_May) April 1, 2018
Ralphie, Lahna, and I were roommates for a short time during my Los Angeles standup days. Ralphie and I were very close in size and weight. We were also occasional binge buddies. Oh, the memories of Popeye's Chicken and In-N-Out Burger spread out all over the couch, both of us diving in, polishing off enough food to feed a family of five. When it came to food, we certainly spoke the same language and completely understood one another. Rest in peace, Ralphie. You're missed by a lot of people all over the world.
Ralphie finished his book before he passed too young and I highly recommend it! You can find it anywhere books are sold--and of course, on Amazon. It's called: This Might Get A Little Heavy: A Memoir.
I better drop in bed. There's an Easter egg hunt with my grandsons Noah and Oliver tomorrow!
Thank you for reading and your continued support,
