03 - Planned NWS - Labor Day special outing with friends
04 - Too generous helpings with supper, 2d piece of garlic bread, total pig-out. So much for my green streak. :cry:
05 - Kinda pink rather than full-blown red. Small snack after hiking, but recovered & didn't give in to WTH. Actually saved half of supper for another day!
10 - Planned NWS - son's birthday.
