I can’t even get through Day One without screwing it up. Just call me Eliot Spitzer.

I was headed to the gym after work, running about 10 minutes behind schedule (par for my course). When I arrived at the gym, there was not one parking space in the whole lot. Seriously. I’m not just making up excuses. SO – I figured I’d better just go and get something for dinner before my 6:30pm appointment. I neglected to plan ahead, so ended up getting a salad at a place called Nothing but Noodles (the irony of my food order does not escape me). I hate salad. Even more than I hate tequila (which I don’t hate anymore, incidentally. See my recipe below. Apparently we were just drinking really baaaad tequila in college – duh).

I didn’t get done with my appointment until 8:00, and there’s no way I’m going to the gym two hours before bed.

SO – I’m back to Day One tomorrow. Unlike Gov. Spitzer, I get a do-over.
