    I did! It was pretty great. I ate more than I needed, but the guy who did the food for this trip was amazing which is not a good excuse but oh well, I'm over it. Today actually was mindful, so that's good and this week I will be back on track. I walked another mile today with my beautiful and athletic wife which was really nice and now I'm going to go make her popcorn because she deserves it and it is good to butter her up. ;-)

    Camping again this weekend. I've hiked about 8 miles on some really beautiful trails. I'm eating mindfully pretty good so far. :-)

    Indeed. Say a prayer for me; I'll say a prayer for you.

    Food yesterday was mostly good. Food today has been good too, so far. I'm all packed up to go camping this weekend. I'll try to get some hiking in, but this trip has a structured itinerary, which I find annoying but it's an excuse to get out in the woods, so there we are.

    I have just been coming to the same conclusion today about myself. In my case, I go through the range in the course of a day. In the morning I'm all resolve and self-control, and I do pretty well through the day, but by the evening I'm worn out and when I go to scoop ice cream at the end of the day I have no will power left. My overall stress level is way up from what it used to be, and I have to consider it an accomplishment that I'm not gaining a bunch of weight right now. As far as what to do about it, I'm not sure. I'm thinking that I might try displacing it with some other coping mechanism. I'm not sure yet what that would be. If you come up with anything, let me know.

    You know, I really am under a whole different kind of stress now. I have way way more responsibility than I used to have, and I'm still not very good about leaving it at work. I probably shouldn't be surprised that I want to fall back on using food to cope. Thank you for that reminder! Thank you also for that reminder! It's so easy to forget that in the long run there's still plenty of time. That definitely is what it is all about. I got in a few sets of deadlifts this morning, and I'm well on track with food. Should shake out to be a really good day. Funny how that goes. ;-)

    ... but not a real green dress; that's cruel....

    I'm afraid I have not been eating mindfully this week. I haven't got any more exercise either. I feel like I might be failing. Step forward, slide back. Step forward, slide back. Step forward, slide back. Bother.

    Just wait till you get to your 40s and you've got two pupal humans to care for.

    Hello! Today's big news is I've written my very last paper in my BS degree program. The term doesn't officially end for like two weeks, and after that I'm not sure how long it takes for me to be a "graduate" and actually get the degree, but I'm done and I'll have As in my last two classes and so as far as I'm concerned I'm finished and I did it and I'm done. I'm not totally sure but I think this means I might have a little more time to do a challenge. I'll have three goals: Goal One: Mindful Eating. Each day I'll try to be as mindful as possible. This has been going okay lately, but not great, so I'll try to have more days mindful than not. Goal Two: Exercise. As I've done in the past, I'm going to count any intentional exercise. It's nice weather time, so a lot of evening walks would be nice. Goal Three: Post More. Now that I'll have some time in the mornings, I should almost be able to do daily updates. Won't that be fun! That's it, nice and easy.
