Not much to report, other than my consuming a small plate of cheese fries and a frosty mug of root beer. But, that was after four hours of standing at an outdoor concert whereat I sweated profusely. Granted, that still probably doesn't offset the cheese fries, but any diet that doesn't let me eat the occassional cheese fry isn't worth it.
Also, here's something that I recently discovered: did you know that the pastrami burger is a uniquely Utahn phenomenon? There was an entire article in the New York Times last month about those crazy Utahns and their crazy burgers. And last night I saw that Gourmet Magazine called the pastrami burger "an outrageous concept". Having grown up in Salt Lake, I assumed everyone had pastrami burgers, but apparently not. The moral of the story: this is the promised land.
(This is not to say that I've eaten a pastrami burger recently. But I may at some point, just to show patriotism to my state.)
Also, my wife last night proposed that she and I turn this dieting into an actual competition wherein there are prizes for the winner. I declined, because she's OBVIOUSLY going to win. She doesn't blog about cheese fries and pastrami.
