Today I went grocery shopping after work because we were starting to run low on fruit. Remember last week when I wrote about being proud of my grocery cart? Well, today my checker commented on how healthy everything I was buying was. She said everything was so fresh and natural and there wasn't a thing that she wouldn't eat! She asked me if I was dieting and when I said yes, she told me that she had lost 40+ lbs. on a soup, salad and sandwich diet and then gained it all back. She said that it is so important that we make a lifestyle change. I couldn't agree more and that's exactly what I'm trying to do!
I always pack my husband's lunches for him and I always tried to give him the foods that he likes, mostly the ones that I don't eat because they are too many calories. But he doesn't have to worry about calories (lucky guy)! So I thought to myself, I'm responsible for packing his lunches and here I am loading him up with junk. So I've been making a conscious effort to make sure he's getting his 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day too. After all, I want him to be healthy too! He's really enjoying the fruit, which is why we were running low on it. :)
I bought some peaches today, I know they're not in season and I was apprehensive to buy them, but they are delicious!! I cut one up and had it for dessert and I loved it. I can't wait for all of the summer fruit to be in season. I love peaches and nectarines. I also bought a pineapple, I've never cut one before, but maybe I'll have my husband cut it tonight. He's got bigger muscles! I also found Naked Juice and another brand of 100% juice, they're usually around $4.00 and they were on sale for $1 a piece!! I loaded up on those! I love those so much and I never buy them because of the price. It's like getting 2 servings or more of fruit in every bottle. I also found some Flat bread, Italian herb flavor. I was excited to give them a try so I made a wrap out of one for lunch. I have to say I wasn't all that impressed, which was a disappointment. I might try making pizzas out of them though. I think those are the only things I got that were different from what I usually get.
Today is a little cooler than it has been, high of 49 I think. I'm really looking forward to my walk this afternoon!! It's really sunny, so I'll just throw on a hoodie and I'm sure I'll be just fine. I'm looking forward to my 25 lb. reward! As of this morning, I was 3 lbs. away!
