Wed Day 3 Week 2 Induction, 21 Jan 09

"To Thine Own Self be True, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."
Inspiration for Wednesday of Week 2 Induction: 20 carbs, 20 carbs *******************************************

Random Thoughts:

Working on finding a source to check the nutritional value of my low carb recipe for Mousakas - not having any luck. I had to add up the individual ingredients by hand. eDiets used to have a nutrition tracker that did this; wonder why they got rid of that attribute. Frustrating.

PERSONAL HAZARD (S)- Snow: closing roads, traffic that may/may not know how to drive in snow (traffic hazards), closed facilities...lack of snow plows and presence of hills around here...need to check on where the salt is laid down before I try to head out of here. Have dental cleaning at noon, nearby; need to get to the pharmacy. Not too far. The gym is on the busiest road in town, tho.

Progress so far:

Doctor Appt:
Did it. The follow-up checkup is already scheduled for March.

READ THE BOOK: Did what I needed, still referring to as I "work the system."
