Daily Fruit + Play

Today I ate:
8:00 . . . 5 valencia oranges (hand-pressed in juicer, one at a time)
11:00 . . .8 valencia oranges (same)
2:30 . . . 1/4 watermelon
3:00 . . . 1/4 watermelon
5:00 . . . 9 oranges (same)
6:00 . . . 8 young pickling cucumbers + 1.5 lbs. cherry tomatoes
8:00 . . . 6 oranges (same)

Play: stretching, walking/running 4 miles, dancing 30 minutes, more stretching

I think these may be the last of the super sweet in-season valencias and I am feeling a bit sad to say goodbye to my loyal friends. They have been my staple food for the last few months and these today were from the last available bags at my local store. I have appreciated them for their sweetness and deliciousness and reliability and ease. Just seeing them in my kitchen made me feel rich and happy. They give a great sugar hit! I love you, valencias. I miss you already.

So it's goodbye valencias, and hello watermelons.

Some days I feel like I am eating constantly, all day long, and today was one of those days. Not complaining, though. What a life!
