Dear Diary

Dear Diary

Today was better.  Ate breakfast, biked to work, brought food, but had a bag of ketchup chips and a diet coke in the afternoon.  Ugh!  I was feeling worn out by the time I got on the treadmill after the weight training.  I think the lower body workout exhausted my legs.  I upped the reps on some exercises.

Breakfast: the usual, lemon water

Snack: roast beef, cherries

Lunch: chips, diet coke

Dinner: 2 eggs, ham, grapes, lemon water
