Day 19

(TUE) July 29th, 2014

3:30 p.m. Still not able to connect to Google via my mobile router. It seems to have something to do with DNS, though I still haven't got even close to a solution. Must gather more information and learn more about the situation I'm facing. Otherwise, I won't even be able to ask the support center.

Today's Jonagold was a bit too tangy, I almost thought there was a Fuji mixed in. Feel like I'm becoming an apple expert. Well, it's already day 19 of my 30-day challenge. So far my pultosis of the palm hasn't improved, rather worsened. I'm guessing because it got hot and I'm sweating a lot again, that the vitamins and minerals in my body are going out in huge amount in my sweat.
