Long Tuesday’s Journey Into Night

I spent all day today in my windowless cubicle at the office.  When I started driving home, it was wet outside, and the streets were full of puddles.  And then, during my less-than-10 minute drive, the skies opened up and there was a thunderstorm.  There was lighting in the distance.  Rain pelted my windows.  I had to kick my wipers up to high.  Then, less than three minutes later, it was over.  I spent almost 13 hours at the office today, but I loved that this particular little show was saved until I was driving home.

It’s the second day in a row I’ve stayed really late at the office,  and so it’s also the second day in a row that I skipped the gym.  This is what the parking lot at my office looks like when I leave at 9:48pm.  Can you guess which car is mine?

And here’s my gym bag, which has sat untouched since yesterday morning – and I suspect may stay untouched for a few days more:

Any guesses on what I brought for lunch today?   A salad.  (Are you patting yourself on the back if you guessed correctly?)   Since my salads seems to have their own following on this blog, I took a photo:

It looks even better in a photo lit by flourescent lights, doesn’t it?  The salad today had arugula, baby chard, other assorted baby lettuces, onion, sunflower greens, sprouted red lentils, sprouted mung beans, capers, and a couple teaspoons of Lite Asiago Parmesan dressing (lovingly bottled by Kraft).

Because of the thunderstorm, the day ended on a good note, and the day also started on a good note as well, because I stepped on the scale, and liked the number that I saw:


That puts me at 258, which means 144 total pounds lost.  I’m 6 pounds away from losing 150, and 8 pounds away from my next goal, which is to lose 152 pounds.

I immediately updated my chart:

Keep it up, David!

    Congratulations! I think I will probably hit my next goal sometime this week. Which is to way less than 130. It has been so long that I can’t remember what I promised myself I would do when I hit that goal. 🙂 Slow and steady.

    Off to the Gym with you tonight!

    OMG! Where is the delete/edit button? I of course do know how to spell WEIGH!
