Thoughts for Today
Today was a fun day. Wife and I met up with our long time friends at a flea market in Cookeville, TN which is about the halfway point between our houses. My only purchase was from a vendor who had cases and cases of jimmies. What are jimmies you ask? Where I grew up, that's what chocolate sprinkles for ice cream were called, but whenever I ask for jimmies here in the South, people look at me like I'm nuts. So when I saw cases full of shrink-wrapped plastic bottles of "Jimmies" from the factory I had to buy one. Total cost: 10 cents.
As far as health score, I rate the day a C+ for having two meals where the main course was a salty red-meat based sandwiches on white bread and for eating some of my buddy's pork rinds when I wasn't even hungry. I might have even rated it a C, but we did walk a lot between the flea market and other places we went and the rest of the day's eating wasn't bad, so I'm leaving at C+.
Good night y'all.

Bagel Thin with a little reduced fat cream cheese. Bowl of Kellog's Low Fat Granola cereal with skim milk. 2 cups of black coffee.
We found a cool little lunch spot on outskirts of Cookeville, TN called The Cottage. Had a BBQ sandwich with mashed potatoes (no additional butter) and green beans. Potatoes were some of the best I've ever had, other food was good too and I liked the atmosphere of the place. Diet Coke.
We intended to eat a light dinner at home, but got hungry while we were still a good hour from home and ended up grabbing Arby's. Had a regular roast beef sandwich with some Arby's BBQ sauce and a side of a potato cake (not nearly as bad a curly fries would have been). Diet Coke.
Bowl of Raisin Bran with skim milk. A few handfuls of hot and spicy pork rinds. A handful or two of BBQ corn nuts. About 12 natural almonds.
