What have you done today to make you feel proud?

The biggest loser is coming on in a few minutes, hence the title.

I've been back in the US for more than a week now. On Thursday I was recognized at the gym by one of my classmates as "the one who won't drink bottled water, right?" My classmate told me that she heard that San Francisco is now banning the sale of bottled water. (Canister Vacuum kindly found the details here about how the SF city government isn't going to buy bottled water anymore: http://www.planetizen.com/node/25253) Anyway, my classmate said Americans do all sorts of things that are hypocritical and not good for them. She said she's a nurse and many nurses are overweight. When she attends nursing conferences, the breakfasts include oversized bagels and sugary donuts and muffins. What kind of an example is that?

So far, no bottled water is an easy task. I brought my own water to Panera yesterday and the pizza shop last Friday, and it wasn't an issue. I just have to remember to bring it with me to my presentation tomorrow morning.

Total number of bottles of water used this year:
3 at the Newark Airport and 2 returning from England equals 5. But by now I would have gone through at least 80 bottles since the start of the year. I'm aiming for no bottled water in February at all, which should be easy since I'm not travelling anywhere.
