Making better choices

I just finalized my order at Urban Harvest. I'm not link savvy so check out, if you are local. If not, there are probably similar programs in your area, I know the locals got the idea from the coast.
Anyway, M-R recommended it and KW(not me or Kerry) signed on too. I haven't been finding great produce lately and thought this might be a good idea. So we will get our first delivery of fresh, organic produce on Thursday! I'm really excited about this, for a couple reasons.
- it's good for us
- it's delivered to the door, people!
- you can swap out anything you want
- recipes for those 'exotic' things
- it's not any more money than what I am spending on veggies and fruit right now, and most of the time, I have to toss stuff out (like Costco lettuce) because it just doesn't have a great shelf live. (2 days)

And I can cancel at any time, or skip a week, which is great because in the summer we get most of our veggies from my Grandpa's garden.

How sad is it that I can't wait until Thursday!!!

Kerry and I did a bit of re-organizing of his bike room and my scrapspace, mostly stuff you can't see with the naked eye. Ha Ha, which really means we didn't do anything. But we did, I emptied out a whole drawer in the filing cabinet to make room for his bill organization, it only makes sense to have them in the filing cabinet. My large stash of envelopes can go somewhere else. I did lots of lable making too.

I woke up grumpy. Not hard to do when you can't ever get to sleep in. I just want one day to wake up later than 7. Yesterday, it was the phone. Today, it was the dogs because K. went for a bike ride. It's very hard to focus on the tasks at hand when you are trying to maintain your grumpiness. Just an hour! That's all I want. And maybe breakfast in bed, a maid and cheesecake.

I weighed in yesterday and am down! Thank goodness. I have an important weigh-in coming in May and need to get rid of a few pounds. I'm pretty sure WW is one of the only employers that will consider firing you because of your weight. I totally understand, we have to walk the talk, but it's harder than I thought it would be on the other side of the scale. Hurry up and get here, Thursday!

I like that Urban Harvest also gives you recipes. A few yrs ago I had one of those services too (different company tho) but they didn't include recipes. Half the time I just didn't know what to do with the stuff. I don't think we had too much control over what to swap out either. I should check them out again and see what it about. I'm rooting for you to meet your goal for WW in May. I'm feeling good this morning...went for breakie at IHOP and while D had eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns and toast I was good and had a fruit bowl, orange juice and a coffee. Yay for me!

That is AWESOME! I was a part of a local co-op similar to this and it was AWESOME! I'm sure you will enjoy doing this! xoxo
