Bringing Tea Back

I guess it hadn't really gone anywhere, but I had gotten out of the tea habit.  I don't know if it was the snow, or the desire to use my tall skinny really cool mug, or just the power of suggestion after the green tea box fell on my head, but today tea and I reunited (and it felt so good).  All three meals I warmed my constantly cold old hands on my tall skinny really cool mug while sipping green tea.  Something about the slightly bitter hot taste seemed like a good ending for each meal.  It is in my genes to believe all meals except maybe breakfast should end in something sweet.  Breakfast just doesn't end with sweet because generally it has sweet poured all over it or in it.  That slightly bitter have to talk myself into tea taste in my tall skinny really cool mug seemed to tell my taste buds I was done.  No need for anything sweet.  It was a great theory for today, and I hope it works for me tomorrow.  I cannot see any downside to bringing tea back unless my teeth turn dingy and green.  I may have to drag out the dreaded teeth whitener.

First day of my three weeks of February goals agenda was a success.  My only regret today was after I woke up to almost 4 inches of snow, I should not have told my jumping off the ceiling small boys to wait an hour to go out and sculpt their snowman.  In true West Tennessee fashion, before the hour was up the rain started falling, and it fell all day long.  No playing happened in the soggy snow.  Next time I will try not to count on the snow staying for an hour!  I am hoping we get a little magic snow overnight so I can make it up to them.

Today I drank over 80 ounces of water, exercised 46 minutes on the elliptical, and ate 1,246 calories.  I am looking forward to tomorrow;  I've got a breakfast date with my tall skinny really cool mug.
