99 bottles of beer on the wall..or days if you will

Almost one hundred days in now, something of interest to me and maybe some of you, I drink from Nalgene bottle regularly, basically if I am drinking water its out of my green bottle. Now I have been hearing that these types of bottles are not safe to drink out of because the chemicals in the plastics leak into the water and can be unsafe in lab tests. what I have been reading says that the clear/colored bottles are the ones that are not safe, they usually have the number 7 inside their recycling triangle on the bottom of the container, but the Nalgene bottles that have a milky color to them are 100% safe and usually have the number 2 in the triangle, Nalgene is a great material for drinking water because it is very resistant to stains, odor does not go through them nor do chemicals and have been used in the medical field for years. does this mean that I will toss out my trusty green bottle? nah, just means that if I see one of the milky colored bottles I will buy it and switch, keeping the green one for outings etc.

My day went well as far as the calories and I did get in a walk early in the day, just under 1.5 miles and it felt good, then later in the day some "free" exercise as I like to call it when its something that needed to be done, Wify and I went outside and raked up the back yard and all around the back porch where we found that the flowers were coming up through the dead leaves so I am curious to see how many pop up this year. My calories were within limit coming in at 1344 BUT I did have a chocolate egg late last night that is not listed on the menu (smaller than a Hershey kiss so it can't be too many calories) here is the menu for day 99.

As Ever


  1. Is there beer in our future? Zonino!

    Love you babe, keep up the great work, and know I'm here for you no matter what!


  2. you can't use anything nowadays without getting cancer = microwaves, plastic wrap, microwaved popcorn, cell phones, power lines, shampoo, cleaning agents, the burnt black part of bar-b-que meat.

  3. I'm with holly on this one, good grief now a days pretty much anything you come in contact with has some sort of cancer risk. It sucks :(

    I love the title for today, lol!

    The walk sounds great. Plus I absolutely love 'bonus' exercise. Mowing, raking, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping-all good ways to burn a few extra calories without making it seem like much of a workout :)

    Have a good one!

  4. Looks like you're hanging in there, chuggin right along! Still doing great!! :)
