Being that we were on the road for a good part of the morning, Patty and I had to improvise with our meals for the day. We went directly from the hotel room to the regional passport office, and then from there to our office. So we really didn't have anything prepared for breakfast or lunch to take to work with us. I can honestly tell you that since the start of this mission, I have learned to adjust to situations just like this one pretty well. And by learning how to adjust, I have also learned how to build up my "willpower." Believe it or not, I have learned that adjusting to your surroundings,especially when dealing with eating a meal, also helps to develop and build up "willpower." I am now able to go just about anywhere for a meal and have a much better chance of resisting any temptations then I would have about a month ago. Now, I am not saying that I am not tempted at all, because I am. However, because I have had a ton of practice adjusting my meals on the fly to make sure I eat healthy, it has caused me to build up my "willpower" tremendously. Thus helping me to resist temptations a lot more now, then I was able to in the past. To give you an example, I am tempted every night to eat another ice cream cone before I go to bed. However, since I have developed a stronger "willpower", I convince myself that I don't need it and I end up going to bed without eating it. I go through this same process every night. If that is not "willpower", then I don't know what is. Anyway, we had a successful healthy day yet again and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
