Yes, there was going to be a barbecue later in the day, and yes, thatís part of the reason I left. It wasnít that I couldnít stand to watch everyone else eating oysters and tri-tip. It wasnít even that I couldnít have taken one day away from my menu planner and improvised something else. It was more that this is the first week of the new diet, and I havenít fully come to terms with how to fit in while eating something different. Iíll figure it out. Next time Iíll know what to take with me, so that I can eat my stuff while others eat theirs. Itíll get easier, Iím sure.
Besides, Iím spending a lot of extra time in the bathroom during this early period of adjustment. If you know what I mean. I think you do. I could write a whole entry about that part of the deal. And I might. One day.
