I got up in time to do my BodyFlex and that was it. I’d gotten to bed late, as usual, the night before.
22 ozzies OJ
32 ozzies banana/mixed salad greens smoothie
46 ozzies banana/mango/spinach smoothie
1 pickling cucumber
Large (almost 3 quarts) salad of romaine, sweet onion, grape tomatoes, dressed with tomato/mango dressing
I was able to get in two three lap rounds, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I was going down the corrider when I met one of my co-workers. I went into power-walking mode and she said, “Okay, Miss Fitness!” Guess that’s better than being called “Miss Fit!”
After work, I did a literal drive-by of Mother’s grave, then headed for the Asian market. They’d saved me four boxes of beautiful Ataulfo mangos. This time, they were 20s for $11.50 a box. They’ll do me for several weeks. “Fortunely” they last well in the fridge. I got one box of coconut. When I told the man awhile back that I didn’t want to get fat, he laughed.
I’d just about decided not to go to the organic grocery but changed my mind at the last minute. I was looking for
Next stop was a supermarket that isn’t living up to its name. It’s BiLo (pronounced “buy low”). I was shocked with the way prices have gone up. The Campari tomatoes were the only thing that were still what they’d been before but they were so pale, I didn’t buy any. I didn’t buy anything. Going out the door, there was a pleasant couple giving chances on a grill in exchange for a donation to a Bible school. I donated but I didn’t fill out the slip. They suggested I could give the grill away if I won it but I wouldn’t want to spread the ability to have cancer more easily so I passed. I gave them each a card so they could understand why I’m so weird.
Aldi had gone up on prices, too, except I got one little clamshell of grape tomatoes. They are the brand Wally World sells for around $2.50 and I paid $1.49. That was the only one they had or I would have gotten more. Grapefruit had gone up to 49 cents but that’s half Wally World’s price and 1/3 BiLo’s. I got 48. They had both seeded and seedless watermelons for $2.99. I got three of the seeded.
Wally World’s produce department was doing better except for the higher prices. Guess the increase in a gallon of gas is getting all of us. I got what I needed there and came on home.
I was about starved after my banana snack. It was awfully late to eat but I did it, anyway. It was 11:03 when I turned out the light.
That’s it until today. It’s an hour until Sabbath. To be continued.
