Yeah!!!! Bravo for me!!!!! This is so great!!!!!

Well, I wish that i knew more about pineapples. I bought one. And I sat it in the middle of my kitchen floor for a couple of days. I didn't want to put it into my refrig, because I would have lost it in there. Tonight I cut half of it into chunks. And now, I need to run errands, so, how long will the thing keep after it's cut open?

Maybe not for long, because it is really good, I've been nibbling on it. And it is really thirst quenching, for sure!

I put it in a plastic container, and chunked it into bitesized pieces and I've taken it in my lunch on two of the three days and it's realy good!

Again, put it in my lunch and I had to do mindless tasks which required me to take facts and then use their judgement as to how to come up with the answers and grade them. There was so many to do, that by the end of the day it became a mindless task. So I came out and on the way home, a straight road with lots of lights for 8 miles, I played the classic music radio and ate celery. More and more of it.....I just chunked on it left and right.

My Saturday work schedule got switched around and I had an opening to swim and I chose to go to the other job and work some hours there. I also had a chance to swim this am, but chose to pack my lunches. I have a variety of foods and I've divided the foods into the days of the week better.

I guess I'm not trusting that exercise will improve my life.....

----I'm tired! But successful. This week I've worked extra hours and have been gone from 8am to 11 pm. And I have packed my lunch and supper each day so far and I have things for my lunch tomorrow. Yes, I've had a couple of milkshakes and a can of pepsi, but the bigger picture is that I've taken a combination of fruits and veggies, and the others at my lunch table are now looking at my lunch to see what the veggie of the day is. NO coffee from that is provided. I've cut way back. WhoHoo!
