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:
DOWN ANOTHER POUND!
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!
