I worked from home this morning, and from Helios this afternoon. Guess doing what. Right! Editing.
I had lunch before heading to Helios, and I just can't articulate how delicious it was: a salad consisting of lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped scallions, diced red peppers, a chopped hard-boiled egg, julienned carrots, pineapple tidbits, a few raisins, some grated sharp Wisconsin cheddar cheese, and a little bit of ground beef.

While listening to this podcast, I couldn't help but think of the video A Girl Like Me, which I talked about in my June 25, 2007 blog entry.
Tonight's workout stats:
