Ship’s Log–August 7th


This “Lose 10 pounds in August” thing is not progressing well for me. It would be easier if people didn’t keep putting high-calorie foods in my way. Today it was homemade cookies at work and then Thing 1 bringing home zeppoli after I had already indulged post-work stress-eating snack.

I need to be put in an isolation bubble if I’m going to succeed.
