This weekend I will mainly be eating carbs. The reason being is that I have taken, well it’s only been 5 days, to not eating carbs during the week but only at weekends. Gay I know but my 40-year bod ain’t looking like it used too! But, how bloody hard it is? It’s all the things I love – bread, beer, chips, pasta, cereal and did I mention beer? Yesterday at lunch I was completely bored by the lack of things I can eat. Ok there’s fruit and salad and of course all the meat and fish I can force down me but its hard not to grab some lunch that doesn’t include two slices of carbohydrate surrounding something tasty.
A friend of mine has given up pasta and bread for lent. He’s Italian but as I told him I think that basically precludes him from being an Italian, I mean what does he eat? Gulps of olive oil with a glass of Frascati?
The other thing is that I have been out a couple times this week and I’m getting so drunk. Because I have to drink wine or even worse the other night, bloody vodka martinis. These hangovers better be worth it. Anyhow, anything goes this weekend, tonight’s dinner is pasta with rice and potatoes all served in a French stick.
