Went up to the lake for my dad's family's annual summer gathering.

Lunch:
1 serving taco salad, 3 slices watermelon, 1 c. iced tea
brisk walk: 45 min
(In the rain. With no rain jacket or umbrella.)

Supper: 4 short lengths of farmer sausage, small serving mashed potatoes w/margarine & sour cream, large helping coleslaw, 2 c. iced tea

Came home again. The camp is only 45 minutes away from where we live and because of the weather, we'd decided to drive back and forth rather than bring our camper. I'm glad we did because on Sunday morning when we got up, the temp here on the yard was 11C/52F. Up at the lake it will have been a few degrees cooler yet!

Sunday

Breakfast: 1 slice toast w/margarine, coffee w/skim milk

Back out to the lake for another day spent in the camp's dining hall with 50 other people because it was too wet to do anything outside. The Bible camp we rented for the gathering is only about 45 minutes away from our house and I don't know what the final tally was there, but here on our yard, our rain guage showed almost FOUR inches.

Lunch: small serving spaghetti & meatsauce, 3 thick slices of garlic toast, 2 large servings Caesar salad, 2 c. iced tea
Supper: 3 open-face sandwiches (egg salad, chicken salad, and ham) w/pickles, cucumber slices, 2 c. iced tea, 2 pieces of dessert (various dainties were served)

White-knuckled it home along some VERY soft and mucky gravel roads! YIKES.

Monday
Brunch: coffee w/skim milk, 2 fried eggs, 1 fried pork chop, 1 slice of toast w/margarine & honey, 1 c. skim milk
Supper: 1 A&W Teen Burger, 1 serving onion rings, 1 large Root Beer
Evening snack: 1 piece leftover Gingerbread cake, 1 mug unsweetened Peppermint tea

Total exercise time: 3 hours & 50 minutes!!
(avg: 33 minutes/day of mostly moderate to hard exercise)

The 80 minutes of lawnmowing make me perspire just thinking about it! At least you have something pretty to look at when you are done!

I'm proud of you for continueing to account for everything you eat...whether you are proud of it or not. Keep it up!
