    I cheated and checked the scale this morning, and I had dropped 1.4 pounds from Saturday's weigh-in!!

    Emboldened by my success, I tried to make today count!

    I spent most of the day outside, working on the chicks' pen, which meant I was too busy to think about eating and too dirty, when I did think about it, to want to stop and come inside. So it was a light day, meal-wise. It consisted of two Fiber One bars (from a box of five I got for free, and I have to admit ...

    Okay, through the food list first, because it is easy to forget! Breakfast was steel-cut oats with rice milk. One cup of coffee with sugar and cream. Lunch was a 140-cal Fiber One energy bar and a hard-boiled egg. I also juiced five blood oranges and had a glass of juice. Dinner was a salad. I had either 8 or 10 glasses of water (couldn't remember, so I had another 2 just to be safe), and I washed down the multi-vitamin with a final swig of water, just as a chaser.

    I mentioned, ...

    I didn't do as well as I hoped today, but compared to yesterday, I did great!

    I had four glasses of water. I meant to drink water at work, but got caught up in what I was doing and forgot. So bad on the water.

    I had oatmeal for breakfast, a half of a turkey sandwich with fries for lunch, and about a cup of sunflower seeds for dinner. (I bought a bag of roasted/salted the other day, so I've been munching on it.) I also snacked on a small snack bag of carrots ...

    Okay, today was just bad. Bad, bad, bad. I think I'm taking today as my "free" day, rather than Saturday. I didn't do one thing right today.

    Suffice it to say the day started with me missing breakfast and ended with me eating a bowl of ice cream.

    Sigh.

    Free day. I'll make up for it on Saturday.

    Productive day today, and better than yesterday, self-improvement-wise.

    I spent the day (8am - 4pm) on the firearms range, so lots of physical exercise today!! Because I was outside most of the day, I tried to keep my water intake up, and I had 10 glasses.

    In addition to the day, I did my sit-ups and I did my free weights. I have been doing a piddly little 5-lb weight, and I moved up to a 10-lb weight tonight. I did my regular routine, and I added some calf raises. ...
