Received my commissary at 7:35 AM, spent $19.75. Walked first three miles in 40 minutes and 9 seconds. Had to dodge water spray form the sprinkler and detour around puddles on water ponding on the track. the morning sunrise and cool temperature was nice for walking. Attended the ServSafe Manager class from 7:30 – 8:30 AM. After the class I got my results form Ms Hubbard for the ServSafe Food Handler’s examination, My score was 95 % out of 100 %. Not Bad. Talked to Counselor Reyes about the amount committed to FRP, He told me that is a floating amount and it varies based on how much is deposited into my Commissary account. They will only take $58 monthly from my account. That’s is a relief my examination score and my FRP issue resolved. Final three miles was completed in 35 minutes 27 seconds, 1 minute and 49 seconds per lap, average 11 minutes 49 seconds per mile. The pace was a lot faster after all my worries about my examination scores and FRP was resolved. Worked up a good sweat and felt really good after the walk. Showered at 10:00 AM.

She harvested some tomatoes and she will give them to Diana and Kein when they come by the house today. I told her I passed the ServSafe Food Handler examination. The FRP amount is $58, The amount available for FRP is a floating number based on my deposit to my account.
