45, 46 & 47

Hello campers!  I have been away from real life for 7 days.

Read that as I was playing hooky from life.  In other words…… VACATION!

States I have visited now equal…..45, 46 & 47.

We started in Louisiana.  Then meandered through Mississippi and ended up in Alabama.  Alabama….. land of grandgirlies!

Sometimes, when I attempt to write on my blog, I make a list of words to help me remember.  Maybe I should just type the list of words?   Before you read through the list, let me just say in advance, today and every single day this week, I will be biking 5 miles and walking 2 miles. This week will be green juice and more green juice.  Every single meal will be vegetarian and whole real foods.

one dayRead that as, “How I ate my way through Spring Break 2015”.
