Day 219 – (AD 1,381) – 22.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – No Skittles On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 another 22.0 miles. Totals now: 29,300.1 miles; 47,154.0 kilometers.


And I have now completed 53.7%, 263.1 miles, of the distance to my next destination and goal point. Overall, I have now completed 33.1% of my total expected distance on Mars.

Yes, my weakness is Skittles. I can go months, years without having Skittles, without any craving. But put a bag of Skittles, an opened bag of Skittles in front of me, there is no will-power that will allow me to only eat 1 Skittle. And I bought a bag of Red, White, and Blue Skittles. I was being patriotic for the 4th of July. And yes, I kept shoving them down my throat. I could not help myself.

And yes, my early morning blood sugar count jumped 59 mg/dL to 179 on the first day after I had chomped down on some Skittles. Two days later I repeated the Skittles’ thing. My early morning blood sugar jumped up, this morning, to 171, up 17 points from the day before. So much for the Red, White, and Blue.

My suppers the last two evenings have been somewhat decent. Yes, the Tomatoes and the Cucumbers were from my Garden Tower.

Chicken with Cucumber served with Bulgur Wheat… This is my introduction to Bulgur Wheat.



And Sambal Glazed Eggplant and Shrimp served with Jasmine Rice.

And today I am trying to answer the question “Who is Charles Custer?”
