Tomorrow is the day of caring for our local United Way. It is usually on September 11th, but since that is a weekend this year they made it the 10th. There are a bunch of us at work that participates so we always try to get a project where a lot of people are needed. We are volunteering at the local Boys Scout Camp, which I have a connection with since my youngest son was a scout. I always loved going to the camp so tomorrow will be a nice break from the hectic days Iíve had at work lately. I believe Iím on wood duty so Iíll get some good strength exercise in. I donít know how Iíll track it in my fitness tracker, but Iíll figure something out.
Volunteering is not something I did so much when I was younger, but as Iíve aged and had a couple of major life events change my life I have made it a priority. I actually am a treasurer for two organizations and a newsletter editor for one of those too. It gives me a good feeling to give back and help others.

I'm winding down on my August Salad Challenge. I have succeeded in replacing a meal with a salad everyday this month. Most of the month I replaced lunch, but a couple of days I had to make breakfast my salad meal because of picnics and such. On my morning salad days I would eat a fruit salad.
Today was one of my favorite salads. It consisted of Baby spinach, baby carrots, feta cheese and shrimp. I cook the shrimp in a non stick pan with Emeril's Bayou Blast seasoning. Very tasty! Tomorrow I think I have a similar salad but with left over Salmon I have that was seasoned with lemon Dill.
As much as I love salads, I'm not sure after tomorrow when I will have another one!
