When you go to bed early, you get up early!

It’s 4 am.

Obviously dark outside. Wind blowing big time. I can hear the water roaring by and the palm trees blowing.

The diet is screwing my life up. I am required to eat every 2-3 hours. Pre prepared foods. So I hang around the house. Additionally, I am still hungry all the time. Only 1,000 calories a day.

Yesterday was day 2 of the diet. Difficult yet. The food tastes like cardboard.

Since I spent most of the day in, I caught up on a lot of paper work.

I did go out for a while. Had a Fed Ex package to send. And also to the Post Office for Lisa with a bunch of packages.

You will recall that last Sunday a couple from Kankakee, Illinois was looking for Key West Lou at Don’s Place. However I had left early. Fortunately Don, David and Tino made them feel at home.

The couple e mailed me over Facebook yesterday. They are Cheryl and Roger Keast. Cheryl advised they were loyal Key West Lou blog readers. Every morning on rising. Wanted to know if and where we could meet up. They had been in Key West for 2 weeks. Visited some of my haunts like Don’s Place, the Hot Tin Roof and La Trattoria hoping to run into me.

I felt bad. We were just not at the same place at the same time. I told them I would be at the Chart Room at 7.

We finally met.

What great people!

But strangers to Key West they are not. This is their fourth year here. They came down 2 weeks ago and will be staying here till April. Snowbirds!

They have an RV and park it at Boyd’s on Stock Island. A lovely RV park.

Both are in their early 60s. Retired. Roger was an electrical engineer who owned his own business. Charming people. Cheryl is a beauty. Some women look terrific coifed in white hair. Chreyl is one of them.

We talked and drank for quite a while. Me, diet Pepsi.

I started to get uncomfortable. I usually munch on popcorn at the Chart Room. It’s the best! My diet prohibits it. I also used to smoke at the bar. My heart says no.

I could not handle it. So I said my good byes and left.

I thought I might stop at the Keys Piano Bar for a Broadway music fix. As I was driving over, I realized that I better get home. I was having a bad night food and cigarette wise.

So it was was home in bed before 9.

Oh, the sacrifices made in the interests of good health. I have to remember the sinfully bad things that brought me to this point. Time heals all. Soon I will be able to enjoy again without over indulging, smoking and drinking.

What a boring life I have to look forward to!

Only kidding.

I am going back to bed.

Enjoy your day!

  1. A 1000 calorie a day diet seems like a pretty small amount for you. Has anyone spent time with you to analyze what you were eating before going on the diet? Men over 51 with a low activity level should have about 2000 calories a day. Those with higher levels, get to have more calories.

    Most restaurants serve portions that are too big for one person, although that one person may eat it. It could be your total calories for the day in that one meal.

    The USDA website has a section where you can go and measure how many calories are in the food you're eating.

    With 1000 calories a day, it's hard not to cheat.

  2. Good day !.
