Note: During August I am giving myself permission to be a little less strict with the calories, and exercise. It’s my birthday present to myself for the month.

Daily Goal: Few, if any, temptations this week. Try to be sensible all week!

Calories – 1348

Steps – 19,806

Progress on the Road from Rauros to Mt Doom (I’m going with Frodo and Sam after the breaking of the fellowship) – 130.86 of 470 miles. Day 6. End of the marshes. Clear and cold. Mountains tower ahead across wastelands. Hide “under a black stone” during gray day. Day 7. Cross area of dry peat, broken by flats of cracked, dry mud. Climb a long shallow slope.
