Day Two Hundred Seventeen

Deli I pass while walking to and from Marshlands Conservancy

Deli I pass while walking to and from Marshlands Conservancy

I’d taken my last antibiotic pill on Sunday night, so on Monday morning my strength was just beginning to come back to me. I got up a bit earlier than I had been, and went on my long walk to, around, and back from the Marshlands Conservancy.

I’d been listening to Teaching Company lectures on ancient Rome, and finding myself receptive to them in a way I haven’t been in years. So I dusted off some of my CDs with backup copies of various lecture series, loaded them onto my iPod, and organized my playlists. I also watched more DVD lectures on the history of the Papacy.

I did very well on my diet that day. Above is a picture of the deli I refrained from walking into during my morning walk, for fear of succumbing to my urge not only to have a hot chocolate, but also to buy one of their homemade muffins. In the evening I controlled my desire to overeat. Would that I could do as well every day.
