Dateline Wuxi, China, Sunday January 20, 2013
I had to ride away to the supermarket on my bike this morning to get some milk. I’m not going to be able to give up milk products until I’m back in Canada, because I can’t figure out how to buy the soy milk substitute, though I know it’s here.
Yesterday was a half hearted cheater day. I went easy on the alcohol, mostly drinking huang jiu, which is fairly light stuff, though when I look at the bottles I realize I did manage to get on the outside of quite a bit of it, plus a nightcap of scotch. Today I shall be pure. At least I’ve been pure so far.
It’s now approaching dinner time and I haven’t been on the elliptical yet. Must do that.
Well, no, I’m not going to exercise today. I feel the need, but it’s too late. Life got in the way. We rode our bikes to the nearby shopping center again, and during our Chinese class we went for a walk to the campus fruit store and bank. That’s all the exercise I’m getting today. I’ll hit it hard tomorrow.
