Twice I've accidentally hit the enter button with the heel of my hand. OOPS! Yesterday was a disjointed sort of day. We were supposed to have a training, but we couldn't get the satellite working, much to our disappointment. Apparently, ... Read more

I have reset my exercise minute goal to 2000 for the month, which is 66.6 per day. (heh) The breakdown was accidental. But that's okay. I apparently ate okay yesterday... I had sushi, miso soup & salad for lunch. Salad for dinner with a... Read more
