Just another day

Good day to everyone in blog land... Blogger seems to be having a temper tantrum... So like any good mother I keep checking in on it but continue about my day! And let me tell you this has been one busy day. When I got up I decided that the gym was of no use to me today. My diet has hit a snag and this time it only took me one week to see the damage I was doing. After the monsters got dropped off at school, I went to the Farmers Market Store. I spent $75 on fresh fruit and veggies. I know it sounds like a lot and it really is... LOL! But this is for the week and there are 5 of us that will be eating it.
Now for that type of money you want to know what I got. Well, here goes:
  • 3 heads romaine lettuce
  • 1 bag radishes
  • 2 bunches of green onions
  • 2 cantolope
  • 2 broccoli
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 3 packs of mushrooms
  • 2 bags of green grapes
  • 2 green peppers
  • 3 lemons
  • 5 limes
  • ½ watermelon
  • 10 ears of corn on the cob
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 package of roma tomatoes
  • 3 yams
  • 2 bags bananas
  • 1 bag oranges
  • 1 pound of healthy ham
  • 1 pound of healthy turkey
  • greek yogurt
  • cottage cheese
When I got home I cleaned and cut up the cauliflower, broccoli, 1 head of lettuce, the lemons and limes, and the watermelon. I will wait to cut up the cantalope until the watermelon is gone. The funny thing is after I got home I got the list of what is coming in the CSA tomorrow. It is everything that I bought today. LOL! I guess that I was suppose to do this today.
I know the gym is doing its thing but the diet has really suffered. I have been at the gym an hour a day and the weight is creeping back on. So that is why I need to better monitor and have better choices on hand. My diet and inactivity has gotten me to this weight and if I don't do better then it will continue to affect my health. Let me tell you the last thing I want is to get what I want and not be able to do or enjoy it!
While I was cutting up veggies, my long lost brother calls and asks if he can come over. Now mind you I haven't seen him in over a month.... maybe longer... in his defense he has been working. But the free time is now being spent with the guys he works with....ahhhh, I digress! We had a nice visit. After he left I needed to take the scraps out to the compost.
As I was walking down the side of the house I smelled the loverly scent of lilac! I stopped to smell them and scared a ginormous bumble bee. While I watched him I started feeling something fall on my head. I looked up in time to see a robin bathing in my gutter. Guess they are full of leaves again... HONEY!!! LOL!
Tomorrow is the city wide yard sale. And I couldn't miss the opprotunity to get in on the action. So this week I have been pulling out stuff to sell. A lot of it needed to be cleaned up. That is what I have been doing this afternoon. I hope to sell enough stuff to buy new lawn chairs and a hammock! Now I just need the monster help to get it all out to the garage. My house is trashed. I hate when I clean like this... my poor house always suffers. But I will have less stuff to trip over in the long run!
Gotta Run,
