You can skip this one; I'm even bored reading it...

~Sunday~  I caught up my Friday and Saturday blog entries, with the Friday one taking way, way more time than I wanted it to working on that community service history table. Oh well, it's nice to have it now that it's done.

I did a load of laundry while I worked on those.

I did an upper body workout today that is definitely going to be talking back to me tomorrow, as I increased the weights on most of the machines. I followed that up with 300 (15 sets of 20 reps) ab crunches.

I ran into the Harris Teeter afterwards, where I picked up a bag of pretzels, a bag of reduced fat potato chips, and a dozen-and-a-half eggs. That's the first time I've ever bought an 18-pack of eggs, but I'm eating them very regularly now and even have two every now and then, since I'm only eating the egg whites after hard boiling them.

I've started taking my blood pressure at least once a day again, and it has been surprisingly low, averaging 117 over 71 over a week's period. I'm curious as to how my next lab work will turn out, as it was off the charts in a bad way the last time I had them done back in May of last year. Presumably, after exercising an average of 5 days a week for 7 weeks and losing 20 pounds, things will be looking a lot better.

I had a most delicious salad for lunch consisting of onions, carrots, celery, mushrooms, hard-boiled egg whites, Italian (x) cheeses, and Durn Good-marinated ground turkey topped with Kraft Free Thousand Islands dressing. Yum. Yum. Yum.

I played some online Scrabble, as well as chatted, with Robert over the course of the evening.

I did a couple of hours worth of homework, which included two reading assignments, and discussion forum postings about them.
