Gettin' it.

I'm really excited for the day. We're heading to downtown Hampton to check out our local farmers market. I've heard nothing but good things and I think it'll be cool to take my family down there. Sam and Michael are also coming, so it'll just be all of us together. None of us have gone, so we're all really looking forward to it. I'm also going to try to get a little more pictures in of my Step Mom. I have a whole produce themed photoshoot going on in my mind. I hope I can execute...

Anyway, so I went to ANOTHER mini farmers market that's near my house. It's an actual business that sells their crops pretty much, and it's really fresh and awesome.

I got all of this (minus a carton of eggs not pictured) for 21 bucks. Is that a deal? 'Cause I honestly don't know. I'm trying to figure out if it's cheaper to shop at farmers markets as opposed to grocery stores. I know everyone is hurting for money so I'm wondering if these small businesses are trying to keep up. What do you guys think? Is this worth 21 dollars (like I said, I also got a carton of eggs).

-5 golden delicious apples
-bundle of collard greens
-4 ears of corn
-3 sweet potatoes
-5 tomatoes
-3 cucumbers
-11 peaches
-1 dozen eggs

I hope to juice a lot of it. I'm probably not going to juice the collard greens though. I'm using it to replace lettuce in general. I had a taco salad (minus the taco) with collard greens instead of lettuce yesterday night. Honestly, I really like the taste of it. I doubt I'll be eating lettuce ever again.

And, I thought it would be really interesting to show some of you how far I've come...

(For reference - I'm about 5'5'' and a half and I used to weigh around 185lbs. These were all shot a few months after Wyatt was born.) Look at those big old nursing boobies. :)

And me today... (or yesterday rather)... (I'm about 140-145lbs up 5-10lbs from my lowest weight, but I'm focusing more on fitness than crazy dieting.) 

Another side note - and maybe a bit random and SUICIDAL... but I'm going to do level three of the 30 day shred today. Josh and I watched it and it didn't seem that bad. It reminded me a lot of p90x and since I've already done that, I think I'll be able to handle it okay. I know that it'll be hard, but it's seriously do-able. Oh, and yes, Josh watched me work out last night for the first time ever. It was awkward and really funny actually. He said he was proud of me! And I felt really good that I made him feel that way about myself. :)
