I already know that beyond a food log, this day will be a wash. Why? A wedding reception filled with vegan Italian food, and no time in between work, it, and after to exercise.

Le sigh.

Breakfast - strawberry soy yogurt - 160

Mid morning - Luna bar - 180

Lunch - grilled veggie wheat wrap with hummus and avocado - ~300

Saving myself up for dinner, which is bound to include all sorts of good food and wine. But will be trying to take it easy!!

Most atheists see themselves as realists - their atheism is a part of their willingness to square up to the world as it is and face it without recourse to superstition or comforting fictions about a life to come or a benevolent power looking after us.

:D Well, next day...not next minute...but yeah! There's a biking trail near me that's ten miles to the end and ten back. Was my first real long distance biking and enjoyed it immensely. Goal is to be able to do that on a regular basis so I can bike to work, which is ten miles down the trail to the place and another ten back.

Yup! Thirsty work, especially in warm summer weather. It's on a trail that's mostly uphill, levels out a bit, has some downhill and uphill. The reverse is all uphill with some plateaus, then lots of downhill towards the end. It's fabulous exercise though! And a gorgeous view, beautiful biking area.

I get dehydrated easily besides so I'd rather make sure I drink plenty. I know my body needs it because I'm typically out for 3-4 hours at a time and don't need to hit the restroom.
