~The blender we ordered is HERE! Yeah. Right now Chris (hubby) is reading the book that comes with the blender.. He still has a ways to go:) ~the book is not interested in OUR health. It's to appeal to the average Joe on the SAD diet. Anyhow, I'm totally excited to have the blender..though the funny thing is, where I can't have any concoction out of it right now, I'm a tad disinterested.. Once my hubby gets it cranked up tho I'll be all over it:) Oh, I too bought a new book, I got it yesterday at Hastings. It's called RAWvolution by Matt Amsden. I've been reading through it and I am really liking the recipes in it. I love how he mentions using a blender and a juicer for most things. Our next journey (Kendra and I) is to get a Spiral Slicer. They retail for $35 but we've found them for $15 on ebay.
Oh!!! While out in service today we spotted a sign that said "Produce". And of course we HAD to stop. It was Kendra and I (along with several others). We spent $11 we got 2 watermelons, 4 HUGE sweet potatoes, about 25 red tomatoes, and about 50 peppers (all colors)!! There could be more of the tomatoes and peppers, but we didn't stop and count them. The picture I have on here is just what I got. Keep in mind you're not seeing what Kendra bought (which combined totals the $11:) .
I guess I'll go for now. No weight change and no other real changes.. But I am doing good all in all. I stepped on the scale a little while ago (which I never do at night and get all concerned about it).. I was impacted by realizing that for the the LONGEST time the scale NEVER moved, unless it was going up. So while I feel my weight is stagnant, I do realize that 2 months ago I was pushing 180! And that does make me feel good about myself. It's nice to finally know (and my body shows) that what I am doing is the BEST thing for my body. It feels really good to be so sure of what you are doing. You know what I'm talking about..
