Day 27

Went Shopping today. Scored some Dates, Apples, more Sultanas AND (for the first time here) scored some GOLD Kiwi Fruit. Yay. At least I have something to eat while I wait for those Bananas to ripen.

Really glad I have something to eat now. I'll spend the next few days building up the calories so I can start training again. It's not like I haven't had the energy to exercise or anything, I still feel just as strong as ever. When I'm only getting 2000 calories a day. I just get paranoid that maybe I won't have enough to repair from weight training and so forth. I feel safest exercising when I'm getting at least 3500 calories a day.

Oh, in case anyone wonders about my randomness... I live in a place where fresh produce supply is fairly unpredictable. Nobody really grows enough fruit around here. I have to basically resort to the nearest towns for shopping. I reckon it's pretty bonkers that it takes shopping in 3 towns to support my family's eating habits. And whether or not we can get enough fruit is just so random from week to week. One week I can be eating 4000 calories a day worth of fruit and the next week I'm stuck with about 1300 a day and have to fill the gap with salads. Of course, not having much in season at the moment doesn't really help.

Things are looking up though, Bananas are starting to come back into regular supply again. I'm really hanging out for Mango season. We know someone we can get heaps and heaps of mangoes from, so that should be good.
