Back to square one on the tendonitis. Very sore today but not as terrible as Saturday.
I read something today about black rice and am curious to try it.
The summer of death continues. I learned this morning that another former coworker has died. Richard was around my age, I think, and I know no more than that. With every name, it gets harder to not slide into some sort of depression. I know better than to ask "why me?" or to ask "what next?"

The tendon feels much better today! I was able to take 3 short walks with only twinges. The pedometer dropped steps again (when a button gets pushed, it sometimes changes the time and, thus, the day), so I can only guess at what I actually did.
So I did some upper body free weight work and that felt pretty good. BF says I will like doing the exercises once I am doing them regularly, but I am doubtful!
A short blog tonight: we're having a great salad for dinner tonight! I am on track nutritionally in every category except for being too low in calcium...
Water - done easily. When it's this warm, water is easy! Surprisingly, I am ending the day with the minimum fiber. I thought I usually am pretty up on fiber, so seeing this (newly added to my tracker) is quite educational.
Stay comfortable, stay healthy, rest tonight and enjoy tomorrow. Whether it's a day off or a day of work, celebrate the day!

I woke up this morning planning to do a lot of exercise. My tendon felt rather sore, but not bad. BUT a while later, I could not even stand on that foot. As long as I stay off my foot, I feel fine.
I lost 2.1 this week! I was amazed becuase I still feel quite chunky. This week has been TOM, the first I have had since April or May, so to see a decrease, much less one that exceeded my goal, was astonishing!
This week's results give credence to the SP philosophy about eating more to lose. I just have to find the balance...

Today was the big day at work. Our CEO has retired and today was the party to celebrate his birthday and his contributions to the company. It was not sad, which surprised me a little because I know the people who work closely with him are sad to see him go.
We had a catered BBQ for lunch. I ate very lightly.
Steve LOVES cookies, so we had a cookie baking contest. There were 18 contestants with 2 dozen each. The top 6 were prize winners and I placed #4! I am not someone who enjoys being in the kitchen. I made "no bake" cookies and have not even eaten one because they are definitely not SP! My prize was a package of 3 cookie sheets with a cooling tray!
Then, I was honored to "Ask the Last Question" during all of the ceremonies. We have All Hands meetings where everyone attends and, at the end of the talk, it's open for questions. I am usually the first person to ask a question and, the few times I have not been at a meeting, Steve asks for me. So, I was honored to ask the last question! When he called me up for the cookie prize, he told the assemblage I am his favorite person at the company! Me! I am so far down on the ladder! There are four levels of management between us! WOW!
I did make a huge mistake today, though. Lunch was so early that I ended up waiting far too late to have dinner and, before I knew it, I had inhaled 4 pieces of pizza! There were no brakes, no stop and think, nothing! ARGH! I know better!
Only 8K steps today, but I have been able to walk every day this week! What a victory!
Tomorrow is another day and I will make better decisions!
