This morning, I slept in a little while. Not long enough to make me late for work but long enough to knock out my minutes on the NT & HR. I did all the rest of my exercises, though.
Breakfast was OJ and a banana/blueberry/romaine smoothie. Break was an orange eaten outside in the sun. My L’equip came so I had a banana/peach/spinach smoothie, Campari tomatoes, and cucumber. Problem with the L’equip is that the variable speed knob isn’t working. I’ve e-mailed to see what I should do about it. It’s stuck on high and I do like to start out slow.
Mid-afternoon, I took some things over to the other building. On my way outside, one of the aides chased me down and asked what diet I’m on. I told her but I don’t know how she felt about it. She looked a little puzzled but told me that I look great. I went to the patio and stopped for 15 minutes and sunned. One of the nursing home employees came out to check and make sure I was okay. Some of the residents saw me and thought I might be sick or dead! I thanked her for their being concerned.
I’d taken some extra tomatoes to work because I was supposed to stay late and pick up my organic produce. Turns out that the person who was supposed to go to Atlanta to pick it up had a family emergency and couldn’t do it. I gave two of the tomatoes to my summer tomato man. He was pleased to get them.
When I got home, I cut one of the watermelons I got yesterday. It was better than the first one. They looked like a fresh supply. I probably ate most of a quart. Then I had some tomatoes in a bowl with Tajin. I made a huge salad of romaine, tomato, cucumber, red onion, really raw cashews, and dressed it with OJ. That’s the first time I’d tried that. I’d heard it was good and it was. I’m finally off EVOO. I didn’t take any with me to the convention. Besides the potential of being messy, I didn’t want the temptation. My salads were all good without it except for the last one and that was made with romaine from the local (there) supermarket. It wasn’t any too tasty. That problem wouldn’t have been solved by EVOO. I feel better without it, too.
I read some in Mad Cowboy last night. I think I’ll do the same tonight. It is a real eye-opener.
Later, dudes and dudettes!
