Feb 28 2012: Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

4:15am start to the day, up and out to the gym happily and willingly, a decent session and a nice stroll by the river once I got to Perth.

This is rapidly becoming my definition of a GREAT day.

Mid-afternoon: Handful of grapes
Dinner: Chicken curry, browen rice and daal

Plain, filtered water: 3800ml
Skinny long macchiato – no sugar
Glass orange juice

Physical, Mood etc.:
Morning – Woke up at 4:15am, mood solid and balanced, ready to start the day
Lunch – GREAT!
Night – Tired, hot, sweaty (after bike ride) – ready for bed, never even switched computer on!

Toe push-ups back in the mix today, which is great. Hit the 2km goal for the warm-up bike ride, second successive day. Need to keep that up now.
