Yesterday, I mentioned fruit and vegetable availability at CoOps. I just recently learned of one in my area and I'm thinking about participating. Problem is, you don't know what you're going to get before you order. I can handle pretty much any fruit, but veggies? I have a tough time with those. How am I going to cook them? How will I store them? Will my family even eat them? I guess we'll just figure it out. Best case, I learn some new recipes - worst case, my friends have a few extra veggies on their plates. Even that's not bad. Good news is I don't have to shop for produce; bad news is I don't get to shop for produce. Honestly, I'm thankful to even be able to participate in a CoOp. If you're interested, check out Bountiful Baskets and see if they're in your area, or search for a "CoOp" in your area. It's a great way to support our farmers. They get more profit by participating and we get lower prices and an abundance of healthy foods - win-win!!
On to today... I'm starting to sound like a broken record with the whole "I was so busy at work" thing, but it's true!! I got to the bathroom once today and didn't get lunch until very late. Needless to say, I didn't make 10,000 steps, nor did I get enough water and being hungry for an extended period isn't good for weight loss nor those around me when the hunger monster rears its ugly head! I will make an effort to do better tomorrow. Ah forget *effort* - I WILL do better tomorrow!!
Finally, praying for all those affected by the fire that started today in Black Forest, CO.
