Day 9

I decided not to weigh in this morning. Taking a day off from the scale. Yesterday wasn't a stellar eating day, though I enjoyed the day as a whole. Not much healthy to choose from at Giants stadium. In fact, I was terribly disappointed by the food offerings at AT&T Park in general. I had heard they had good food, but everything there seemed so mass produced and unhealthy it was scary! In the end I went with the good old-fashioned hot dog. I hadn't had one in years, and when else do you get permission to enjoy a hot dog other than at a baseball game? I also had some peanuts and a beer - all requirements in my mind. Though if I go to a game in the future, I will probably bring in something to eat - there are so many great places in SF to grab food, I wouldn't waste my money or calories on any of that crap at the park.
