Your ankles are swollen.

Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland (2007)
The children are staying with their grandparents in Athens for Spring Break. We are home attending to work. For the past two nights we have been binge watching Mad Men. All that remains is Sunday night's episode, and we will, for the first time, know as much as anyone else. We have finally caught up.

I watched the first episode of Breaking Bad last week. I understand that was very popular.

In college and through my very young adulthood I took coffee black. My wife introduced me to the joys of sugar and cream, and I have been drinking it that way for twenty years. She stopped taking sugar in her years ago, but now I have. I thought it would be rude adjustment, but it's not. I enjoy coffee without any sweetener.

However, not as much, apparently. Without noticing it, I realize I am drinking one cup in the morning. That's it. Not two, as were usual, nor a third once I get to work. I drink water at work. One cup of caffeine, no additional pick-me-up at 3 PM, no soda pop at all.

Not sure if I ever will drink soda pop again. That stuff will kill you.

Baseline: 178.5 lbs.
Today: 165.5 lbs. (-0-)
Goal: 170 lbs.
Ideal: 165 lbs.

Did I mention that my doctor, believing perhaps that I would find it difficult to just stop drinking soda (I just stopped smoking one day, almost 14 years ago and never looked back) actually suggested, in fact encouraged me to drink diet soda? I mean, seriously, she said that's fine.

Not sure what to do with that information. It's ridiculous.
