Posting yesterday’s notes…
Morning Weigh-in: 147.0 lbs
5:57 am – 1 quart salt water
8:21 am – 1 quart limeade
I juiced the limes at home and stored in a pint for the ride to work. I use a sink strainer (that’s never been in the sink!) to keep out the seeds. The limes were pretty firm, even after rolling, so I made some cuts in the flesh to get the juice out. Four were enough for 3 batches (or 6 tbsp) in one quart. The limeade was a bit more tangy but a nice, refreshing change.
11:04 am – 1 quart lemonade
Lunch was fun…and cold! I went to the Farmer’s Market for some butternut squash. I got those, some Roma tomatoes, Kentucky-grown Shitake mushrooms, and red onion. Stocking up!
1:06 pm – 1 quart lemonade
Annnnd, I’m about out of maple syrup again!
4:13 pm – 16 oz warm water
More groceries! While shopping for maple syrup at Fresh Market, I continued to stock up on more fruits and veggies for next week. As previously mentioned, I signed up for the FullyRaw 21-Day Challenge, though I plan to go at least a month all raw. The shopping list for the program is super helpful! I bought 10 small zucchinis, 4 large cucumbers, 3 heads Romaine lettuce, 2 celery, a bag of sweet peppers, an onion, apples, bananas, and even some small red watermelons! I felt somewhat self-conscious buying so much produce again, minus any packaged foods, as it usually draws looks or questions at the register. I was having flashbacks from raw shopping trips past. Then, I stepped back and noticed my large shopping cart was nowhere near packed! Regarding what’s a normal amount to buy/eat, my perspective is in the process of shifting. = ) I just hope I eat it all!!
7:23 pm – 1 quart lemonade
10:00 pm – 1 pint herbal laxative tea
