  1. 05/20/2009 - P.H.A.T. Chick Journal

    by , 05-21-2009 at 01:10 AM
    Another scattered kind of day. Again, I'm going from memory, and my memory isn't great right now, but I'll do my best.

    Exercise. Nada. Nothing. Zip. Zippo.

    Water. Got my eight glasses in!! Woo hoo!!

    Diet. Okay, let's see. 2 cups of coffee in the morning, followed by a yogurt with some granola. Approx 2/3 cup of sunflower seeds. Approx 1 cup of cherries. One bowl of HM veggie soup.

    Didn't do too badly in the diet department. ...

    Trying to reconstitute my food log. I have found that if I don't write it down, I completely lose track. That said, I am not 100% sure I have the day's menu completely accurate, but I think I do.

    Water. Not sure how much I drank, but I'm guessing about 6 glasses. Definitely 5, at the minimum, but I'm trying for 8-10, so not as much as I should have drunk.

    Exercise. I took my 4-mile walk last night, at about 7p. Got back just before dark, so good timing!
  3. A week on the ranch (May 11 - May 17, 2009)

    It was a disappointing week at work, mostly because I was so busy, but a lot of what I put into motion didn't give me the results I had hoped for. Several meetings with people we had really wanted to talk with, only to have them be untruthful. One huge project that I started, then handed to another team, because we decided that my team had to concentrate on something else, only to learn, at the end of it all, that the project didn't get done and has now landed back into our laps.
