I’m wallowing in fruit again. More about that later, though.
I was up and at ’em this morning. I did my exercises through the LSEs and then I jumped to the pushup. Bad news. I fell by 21 seconds to 77. Still pretty decent for a 63 year old woman.
100% Raw Food
16 ozzies OJ blended with 1.5 cups frozen peaches, thawed (the last from last summer)
24 ozzies banana/romaine smoothie
30 ozzies banana/red leaf lettuce smoothie
Lots of cherry tomatoes with a sliced homegrown cucumber
3+ quarts watermelon
1 quart PEACHES!
I put in three laps around the buildings this morning. Things got busy for me this afternoon so I never made it out for the afternoon jaunt.
The son of one of my co-workers brought some watermelons. Since I’m working on my last one, I invested $6 in a large one. It’s resting on the floor along with most of two boxes of PEACHES! I don’t know what variety they are but they look suspiciously like Elbertas.
I know they have a very good flavor and didn’t need any agave nectar. Elbertas are also my very favorite variety. I took some of them in to the girls in the office and the ones at the nurses’ station.
I’d stopped by the store and there were speckled bananas packaged and marked with a price of 19 cents a lub. I got a couple of 44 cent packages. I just opened them and they are less ripe than I usually get them! I have enough bananas for the next couple of days so that was a nice surprise.
The peaches smell lovely. I almost hyperventilated on the way back to the hospital. One of the boxes had quite a few that were on the borderline of going bad. The other one was beautiful. I sorted them out and took my neighbor a mango box of good peaches. I scalded the others and peeled enough for my quart plus a three cup container to take to work tomorrow. I juiced an orange and poured OJ over them to keep them from turning dark. There were a few left in the bowl so I finished them up, too. There are still several peaches in the sink in cold water. I’m going to leave them there tonight. I don’t have time to fix them. When more get ripe, I’ll put them in the fridge and have them to eat for the next few days. I don’t plan to freeze any this year. For one thing, I really don’t have enough room in the freezer, I don’t trust the freezer on the other fridge, and I prefer them fresh, anyway. I didn’t use them that often so I won’t miss them.
News of my BIL…he has agreed to go to rehab until his legs are strong enough for him to ambulate. That was good news. I was afraid he was going to be discharged home. This way, he’ll have structured physical therapy and my sister will have a chance to recuperate, too.
I am so glad I don’t cook! I saw a little bit of “Unwrapped” and they were showing a home model of a Viking range. The prices start at $3,000 and go up to $9,000. At one time, I would have been salivating and would have lusted after one. That’s a lot of money to spend on something to kill nutrition. Plus, it would promote global warming. Whew! I dodged that bullet!
It’s ‘way past 10 and I need to hit the hay. NO SALT! Good night!
