My goals:
1. Burn more calories than I eat! Burned 1715, ate 1679.
Considering it was New Year's Day and I was given bakllava (240+ cals) at 2 houses I visited, this was quite an achievement! I asked one family for a knife and cut my bakllava in half. A 3rd family are good friends, so accepted my request to give me the bakllava on a later visit - if there's any left! They offered to give it to me to take home, but I've got enough calorific food people have given me that I don't need to add bakllava to it!

2. Complete JUmpstart Bootcamp.
Have completed the first 2 days. Am thinking of getting the car out to go into town much m ore often. ?Or even, greatly daring, walk the 3 km into town. I gave that up after a dog came at me. I threw the 4 stones I had with me at him. He continued. I swung my shopping bag at him and he bit it! Then his owner belatedly threw a stone at him and called him off.... Having needed stitches after being attacked by a neighbour's Alsatian, I am much more frightened of dogs. Though I now have pepper gas. (The only time I used it, it didn't work, maybe because it was so cold it was frozen. But I now have a brand that should be more reliable...)

    Fortunately the dog;'s owner was around, and the dog was threatening nto attack, rather than doing so. I tried out my new pepper spray and that came out in a short distance jet of liquid, rather than a cloud of gas.
    I left 1 1/2 of 2 large slices of bakllava yesterday, and they wrapped it up and gave it me to take home. Fortunately it keeps almost indefinitely!

    I can't imagine the horror you must have felt when your pepper spray didn't work. WOW! MMM, I love Bakllava. Good for you leaving half behind.
