Wow, We had a wonderful weekend. Terrific music, family and friends. We spent the weekend in Decatur, Illinois at the Central Illinois Jazz Festival. We got out of Chicago just before the snow began flying and by the time we drove home the roads were cleared. I have never been to a professional Jazz show. It was fantastic.

My favorites were the Cornet Chopsuey, CIJF AllStars, and Banjo Buddies. The trumpets were hitting the high notes, the trombones slid to the right notes and the Jazz musician's fingers were flying over the clarinet keys. Wow. I have seen classical performances and these Jazz musicians were just as good.
My eating for reduced weight wasn't very good. For breakfast I had the buffet for 2 days. Wow, what great food. Biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, french toast, syrup, bacon and a danish. Luckily, we skipped lunch, though one day Mary and I ordered an appetizer. Then the big banquet was excellent. We ate prime rib, baked potatoes, green beans almondine, a delicious salad and a sweet cake and strawberry dessert.

I feel bad about not controlling my eating, but I rationalized I was with family and friends and I will do better this week. See, we can always talk ourselves into not doing as well as we should. Be strong. Be committed to your goal. Drop a pound this week. Not 10 pounds, not 20 pounds only 1 pound.

This week for breakfast, choose a low calorie breakfast, but eat something, so you aren't tempted by all the goodies brought in by your coworkers. Choose vegetables for lunch and a small sandwich. Then eat reasonably for dinner. Everyday this week. You will feel better about yourself. Your diet will be back in line for a successful spring.
