The best WILD WEDNESDAY ever !


Thursday, March 06, 2014

Hello and what a nice start to a wonderful Thursday. Yesterday as I was running my usual wed. errands of recycling , groceries ,getting gas , etc. and trying not to stop and have fast food , as I did not reach my 1st yr anniversary goal of 70 lbs lost , however I have lost 60 lbs and feel so much healthier and very proud of my success as tomorrow is my 1 yr anniversary here at Spark and I owe it all to you inspiring members that have kept me motivated to keeping a promise to myself to getting in shape and lose this 100 lbs of extra weight , so 60 in a yr is making me healthier and happier!

Ok, on with my story. When I picked my daughter up from her job as a preschool teacher in the inner city of Detroit , which I am so very proud of saying that she is a wonderful daughter as well as a remarkable asset to the school system. Well she is doing a hands on lesson of making fruit and veggie kabobs with her class tomorrow , so she wanted to go to this neighborhood fruit mkt where they advertise a WILD WEDNESDAY sale. We went in and much to our suprise it was the best sale I have ever seen!
This is what we got----

Pineapple 2 lg
Strawberries 8 quarts
Mangos 4 lg
Grapes 3 lbs
Peppers 15 mixed colors
Celery 2 bunches
Carrots 2 bags
Beets 4 lg
Eggplant 2 lg
Broccolli 3 crowns
Leaf lettuce 1 bunch
Tomatoes 4 lg
Lemons 4 lg
Limes 4 lg

All of this produce was only 22.63. What a great WILD WEDNESDAY. I think this is a sign , to have me continue to eat 8 to 10 fruits and veggies daily, I will be stopping at this fruit mkt weekly so I can continue to get healthier on my weight loss journey. Oh , and here's the reciept.... emoticon
