Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes?
Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day?
Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank?

    This was 5:40 a.m. at the farm. I’m sitting on the barn porch and drinking Costa Rican coffee. The shadows that you see are the barn itself. It was a perfect morning. If you look very close you may see 2 horses in the distance.
    Have a great day!
    Or, I hope that you had a great day!

    Definitely beats my morning view!! Lovely.

    yes, yes, yes
    Last day of the month is tomorrow. I am 2,000 feet short of my climb goal.
    I could climb that tomorrow early. I might but little Buddy is coming over. I always like to greet him "there is my little Buddy." He grins.

    I qualify for Strava's climbing merit badge again this month with a good bit of spare change. Should I obsess over that last 2,000? If I wake up at 5:00 without an alarm I am going to go for it. I will still make it back in time to greet Buddy.

    Winners circle ugh - I think I only got about 50% on track this month. But when off track I guess I haven't been going off the deep end. I lost a couple of pounds. Slow steady movement towards a goal, something to be said for that.

    I spent a lot of time outside this month. Clear sky - don't even put up a tent. Wake up in the middle of the night, binoculars are close to hand. Lately no moon so I get to look at galaxy. I like it. I wish I had a camera that could photograph that.

    I put a picture of Lizard Head. That rock formation on the mountain. I couldn't really enlarge it much. Took that pic a couple of days ago. Riding up that I encounter people that kind of celebrate that a geezer like me can do it. They are in four wheel drives and ATVs.
    Maybe I will put a screen cap of my climb calendar.
    Show that I don't really exercise every day. My knees kind of don't like consecutive days.

    And I tell you what - I spent a night under the stars at 9,000 feet. It got down to 33 degrees. Frost on everything. I only had one sleeping bag and a wool blanket. That was the wool blanket my Dad slept under in Korea. I get kind of sentimental about that.

    Yes x 3 for Friday
    Actually jogged with the dog instead of walking. So grateful to have my knee healed up and health back, it just felt like the right thing to do.
