For the second straight day I increased my daily amount of exercise, this time by braving the cold for a ten minute walk, and doing ten minutes of various exercises in my apartment. Once again, this appeared to pay off, as this is the third straight day I marked a net loss of weight. This is primarily a function of keeping myself from turning into a Gremlin* and the increased exercise. The third component, eating well, is something that I'm "easing" myself into. This is in large part because I was away for over two weeks, and I don't have groceries. I've yet to brave the cold to go to a grocery store to change that, but I'm hoping to get there sometime before next Monday.

Yesterday I ordered the AWOL Appalachian Trail Guide for 2015. This will likely be the guide I'll divide up and partition out in mail drops (don't want the extra weight of that book, after all). This is one of the first small things that will hit home about the upcoming hike as we inch closer to that step off date.

*OK, so no eating after 8/9 pm isn't midnight. Close enough
