I started off this morning pumped and ready to go! I visited a lot of my SparkFriends today, to remind them to make it a Wonderful Wednesday and ended up doing just that myself. I found out a great friend ended up with an unexpected day off and quickly decided to go and meet her for a walk. We planned on an hour walk, and this fit into our schedules. As usual, once we start chatting and walking, we end up exceeding our goal. We ended up walking for a little over an hour and a half! At that point, I didn't even want to stop walking, but all good things must come to an end. I decided to go to Produce Junction on my way home. It's a place for larger quantities of produce and inexpensive prices. I walked out about $20 "lighter" but had 3 avocados, a pack of strawberries, a pineapple, tons of bananas, 2 heads of romaine lettuce, a large package of scallions, a large bag of bell peppers, and a bag of mushrooms along with 3 Eight inch mums!!! I had committed to replacing a meal with a salad in our Trick or treat challenge. I used a lot of the fresh produce as ingredients in dinner, a mixed up crazy salad with chicken. The kids even enjoyed it! Tonight was crazy with both kids soccer practices at two different fields at the same time, so to make things work, I brought my laptop (even without internet access) to be able to type up my blog so I could copy/paste when I get home! I can make this work! I will make this work. I will find the ways to make it work.
