This morning I went shopping for food and came out of the store with nothing but fruit, vegetables and chicken. I was initially shocked how expensive it was; then a friend reminded me that while processed foods cost less, they make you more hungry and want to eat more. Another friend recommended two books, one by Mark Bittman and another by Nava Atlas, that teach you how to shop wisely and cheaply for healthy food. I think I’ll check these books out tomorrow. If anyone else has tips or suggestions, feel free to send them my way.
For lunch, I met with friends at Pita Jungle where I had Chicken Tikki Masala with greens and a huge heaping of brown rice (of which I took a few small bites). Absolutely delicious and filling!
Afterwards, I took my sparsely-used bike to a bike shop to have it tuned up and the tires replaced. It’ll be ready by noon tomorrow.
Then I stopped at LA Fitness to see about signing up for a free two-week trial but, unfortunately, they no longer offer it. I guess they’re overwhelmed with the January “New Year’s Resolution” gym crowd that they have stopped doling out free trials. I’ll just have to suck it up and drive a little further to the Y. They’re offering a yoga/pilates class tomorrow at 10:45. I think I’ll attend.
Ah, it’ll be an hour til 6 so I better whip something up for dinner. Don’t want to break my new “eat no later than 6 pm” rule on the very first day, now do I?
P.S. If you haven’t noticed yet, I changed the title of my blog to “Un Calitrano Sordo” (A Deaf Calitrano). More fitting, methinks.
