Day 53

I stayed home today to get things caught up around the house. How is it laundry piles up faster than melting butter on a hot pancake and why did I not take two seconds to pick up that little piece of paper on the carpet instead of running the vacuum over it six times??? I won't even ask about two socks in the washer and only one coming out....what's up with that?

As for our "dining experience" today, both Ray and I had shakes except he had a little lunchmeat. For you other "shaker partakers" out there, use vanilla mix with Great Value Peach Mango (sugar free). It is very good.

About 3 pm, I went on my walk doing the same thing that I did yesterday, except I added another trip around the track at the high school. When I was in the shade the weather was okay, but in the sun my ear canals got so hot I sweated my ear buds from my ipod right out of my ears. The walk up the overpass wasn't as difficult as yesterday and hey a trucker honked at me.....probably was worried I was going to jump.

All in all, I had a great day and am looking forward to Monday. Back to work and Monday night my Red Hat group will eat out. I will have a new challenge, but Do It Every Time and I will be okay.

A successful diet is the triumph of mind over platter.
