It’s getting ‘way past my bedtime but here I am anyway. It’s taken several tries to get on here to blog.

I woke before the alarm went off–guess I was a little paranoid about sleeping in when I shouldn’t oughta. I got up and did all of my exercises.

Breakfast was OJ, two nectarines, and a banana/romaine smoothie.

Seems like there were a few people who missed me while I was on vacation. It sounded like it was pretty busy, though the reports didn’t bear that out.

The mail/bank person had to back up the materials clerk so I backed her up and did the running around. I stopped at the supermarket on the way back and picked up some romaine.

I was able to break away for 15 minutes sun this morning. It was a nice temperature and I could have gone to sleep had I had more time.

My snack was the last two organic kiwi. Lunch was a banana/romaine smoothie, tomatoes, and cucumber. I took the rest of the watermelon sorbet and shared it with several of the Lunch Bunch. Everyone liked it.

I wanted to get away on time since I needed to go to Wal*Mart. I ended up staying almost a half hour over. Once I left, I buzzed over the mountain and did a drive-by of Mother’s grave. I’d failed to take water or paper towels and the place was so grown up there was nothing I could do to improve it.

Wal*Mart had almost everything I had on my list. It took awhile to round it all up and I saw one of my co-workers from Patient Financial Services. She’d had a possible pancreatic problem last week and had been in the hospital for a couple of days. We talked for a few minutes and I went on my way.

When I got home, I had some watermelon. It is pretty and red and has a good texture but not much flavor. Kinda disappointing. Then I had a banana/romaine smoothie and some tomatoes with Tajin. I got out the mushrooms to finish up but it was getting late and I wasn’t that hungry so I put them back in the fridge.

I got some new scales. The ones I’ve been using fluctuate so wildly that I don’t really know how much I weigh. One morning, I weighed in at 128.5 and couldn’t believe it. I got off and back on and they still said 128.5. A few minutes later, I tried it again and weighed 133.5. Now tell me, does that seem right? I haven’t weighed on the new ones yet. I’ll save that for tomorrow. They are supposed to be accurate within 1/5 pound. We’ll see. I don’t know how I’d verify it but we’ll see.

Better get to bed! G’night!

    Tommie,

    Are you planning on keeping up your blog after you hit 1 year? I love reading it and would have to say I’d be very disappointed if you stopped!

    I like the foods you eat. You make raw food so simple. I made extravagant meals, at times, as a Vegan but when I eat raw I prefer simple meals.
    I made the transition almost two weeks ago. Do you know lightly steamed foods (what I mainly ate as a vegan) no longer tasted the same. I honestly think the series of colonics I had was speeding up the process.

    I do plan to keep this up. It benefits me, too. My gynecologist says that it makes me accountable. That’s no doubt true though I don’t need any encouragement to eat raw food. I love it! And it’s so nice to be able to eat anything I want with a clear conscience! People can’t believe that I want what I’m eating but I’m not the kind of person who can sit down (or stand over the sink like I did this afternoon) and routinely put stuff into my body that I don’t like.

    As for you, VM, whoopee for you on your progress!

    And I agree that the simple foods are the best. I tried out several recipes in the beginning but they are a lot of trouble and, nine times out of ten, they are disappointing. For the most part, they DON’T taste like the cooked food they are trying to imitate. Plus it can get expensive to make complicated mixtures and throw out most if not all of them.

    Onward through the fog!
