DAY 12-- Augst 7, 2011
Today I consumed the nutrients from:
+ 1 carrot
+ 4 larges leaves of kale
+ 3 apples
+ 60 midnight beauty grapes
Just looking at what I drank today you probably think I starved myself. I kinda did. Sundays are hard (as I mentioned last week). We have church from 12pm-3 pm. And then I'm always talking to people afterwards. And don't even get me started on how long it takes to get 3 kids 4 & under into the car. And, my fruit and veg supply is running out. I'm overly-excited about grocery shopping tomorrow. I mean, it's probably not normal to be this charged to buy produce.
Today in church when I was taking the sacrament (you know, symbolism, the last supper and all that jazz) Ryan leans over to me and says, "you'd better write this bread in your journal". So I confess: I ate a tiny crumb of white bread today in church. Ohhhh, the shame!
We had a very unhealthy chicken enchilada casserole in our freezer that Ryan wanted to eat for dinner instead of the healthy meals that I've put in there. I don't blame him. I couldn't stand the fatty delicious smell of it cooking, so I decided to take a nap on the couch. It was a good nap. Until my little 2 1/2-year-old started jumping on me and saying, "Mommy, I wuv you". I'm not gonna lie, I like me some lovin', but I don't like little 25-pound bodies jumping on me when I'm trying to sleep. As for my dinner, Ryan made me a fruit juice slushy. It was incredibly delicious. Something about the icy texture was just what I needed. Yet another thing I've learned about juicing-- sometimes it's fun to juice things and then blend the juice with ice. I probably would have never thought to do that, so props go to the creative husband that I so sneakily snatched up 5+ years ago.
