    Fell behind by a few days.

    On 8/3/2009, I ate:

    2 cups of coffee w/ cream and sugar
    about 4 bites of an apple (shared with parrots and bunny)
    2 slices of meatloaf w/ 1/4 c. unseasoned pasta
    1 small bunch of grapes
    approx 1.5 c of dehydrated squash (salted)

    Only had about four cups of water. Did all my exercises.

    On 8/4/2009, I ate:

    2 cups of coffee w/cream and sugar
    1 tuna melt w/ fries
  2. A week on the ranch (July 27 - August 2, 2009)

Just assume everything is status ...
