Well, the only things I shot were a few pictures and a cute little video - but watch it and you'll see that this turkey was one lucky turkey today! I disappointed the kids but Debbie told me that I would have some good karma coming my way as a result.
If you haven't seen it yet, I added my Healthometer to my blog links. It's a day to day record of my weight gain or loss and my blood pressure. I only bring it up today because, oddly enough my weight went back up to 179 at this mornings weigh in. This was strange to me - but good. My goal is really for my BP to get as close to normal (120/80) as possible and I have definitely seen improvement in that since starting the challenge. Soon I will get around to posting my photo log of my body which I have been taking each morning. I don't see too much change but I'm starting to hear from other people that I'm losing weight.
I ate my orange for breakfast - the whole orange - skin and all. I figured it would be nutritious even though it was quite bitter. I made it last all morning and thoroughly enjoyed the sweetness of the orange when I got to the inside. I carved up my pineapple very carefully and froze most of it so it would last a while. I scraped off every bit of fruit from the skin with my teeth and didn't waste a bit. It was perfectly sweet and ripe. Yum. It's been so long since I had 'sweet' flavor that I wanted to gobble the whole thing but I am going to be smart and ration it. The lemon - don't really know what to do with that yet.
I had a couple pieces of smoked bass throughout the day and for dinner I cooked up a some fish sticks, green beans and edemame for the kids and Debbie and grilled some bass ribs for myself. I fixed my gas grill today and now it is working again. I think I had some spider webs in the venturi tubes so I just had to clean them out.
That's it for today - could have had a nice roast turkey dinner! I think it's just a matter of time. . .
