    Well, to counterbalance yesterday, I did very well on the exercise today, but not so great in the food department!!

    I didn't really do a breakfast/lunch/dinner thing. Instead, I think I ate a piece of carrot and had my coffee while making breakfast for everyone, then I had to run to the craft store to set up my booth. About 1:30p, I realized I was hungry, so I headed for home and had a salad at about 2:30p. Well, that filled me up, and I didn't feel like eating again, so other ...

    I was feeling exceptionally lazy today, so I didn't have the best record, exercise-wise. But every once in a while, you need a mental health day, and today was mine.

    I didn't do any programmed exercise today, but I did spend a lot of time outside, hanging up bird houses, weeding, visiting with the goats, collecting eggs, all the stuff I normally do, but this is the first day in WEEKS I've felt good enough to do it again and enjoy it! Kind of wore myself out....

    I think I did pretty well today. I started out the day with my traditional two cups of coffee, and then decided to "cheat" and weigh myself. I weighed 150.6, so already a pound less than last week's weigh in. I am hoping, hoping, hoping to break 150 this Saturday, and to keep it under that!

    Took a shower and actually tried to do something with my hair other than pulling it into a pony-tail. I'm still working from home, so I didn't change out of sweatpants and a t-shirt, ...

    Better and better...a little progress each day.

    Today's food consumption: one banana and 2 cups of coffee for breakfast, a big bowl of oatmeal with rice milk for lunch, snacked on 1/2 mini-loaf of artisan bread and a mini-carrot while I was chopping up produce for the bunnies, and had a big salad for dinner. Oh, and one cough drop!!

    Finished off my 8 glasses of water, did my sit-ups and push-ups, and I managed an hour on the treadmill!! Yes, the hen is back up ...
