And yet another reason for my surly mood, beyond the diet and the denial of my nightly glass of wine:
West Virginia’s ownership of the nation’s longest winning streak was short-lived.
Mark Patton had 16 points and 10 rebounds as Marshall posted a 58-52 victory over West Virginia (No. 13 ESPN/USA Today, No. 9 AP) on Wednesday night, ending the Mountaineers’ winning streak at 12 games.
Center Kevin Pittsnogle had guaranteed a win for West Virginia (14-4), but the Mountaineers were held to a season low for points and fell to their cross-state rival for the second straight year, the first time that’s happened since 1981-82.
If you were a South Beach diet kind of guy, you could have that nightly glass and regain your manly figure at the same time.
what kind of diet won’t let you have a glass of wine?
From the highlights, it looked like Marshall didn’t shoot so hot either, despite the win. John, any diet which has a person uncomfortable and grumpy is not going to be a successful diet. Something is definitely not right if you’re feeling so hungry and grumpy. Those are the kind of diets where you suffer, then finally break down and eat a large amount of junk food and/or sweets then feel guilty afterward.
Start a modest exercise program which includes strength training 2 or 3 times/wk emphasis on free weights, and some sort of aerobic activity that you enjoy.. key words being modest and enjoy. Assuming you still don’t drive, see if you can access exercise facilities at the univ., because if it’s not easy and convenient to work out, you won’t do it consistently. Try and eat several smaller meals (but not too small) a day which focus on meat and vegetables, minimizing but not eliminating starches like rice, bread/cereal and potatoes. Eat heavier during the day, and light in the evening. If you feel hungry at night, eat some hot beef or chicken vegetable soup.. it’ll fill you up with very few calories. If you’re hungry, eat. Thank me later
I wouldn’t worry about it too much, John. Strange things happen in crosstown/cross-state rivalries.
