I definitely went on a shopping spree this evening…but first, let’s rewind to this morning!
After coming home from my not-so-fun run I showered and had a bowl of Cascadian Farms Organic Honey O’s, Horizon Organic Skim Milk and Raisins. After this picture I topped the cereal with a banana.
I also had a glass of Naked OJ with Benefiber. After breakfast Chris and I went to the post office to mail a couple packages (Steph – you’re package’s in the mail!!) and pick up a package that was sent postage due (Marathon Woman, can’t wait to read it). We then decided to brave Costco to pick up a few things, it wasn’t as bad as we expected but I really wish people would treat shopping carts like cars – drive on the right side, major aisles get the right-of-way, etc! Wouldn’t that make shopping less hectic?? 😉
At Costco we got:
- Celery Sticks
- Broccoli Florets (a HUGE bag…nom, nom, nom)
- Personal Pan Cheese & Pepperoni Pizzas
- Honey Maid Graham Crackers
- Rudy’s Organic Honey Sweat Wheat Bread
- A giant bag of BBQ Pop Chips
- An organic bagged Ceasar salad kit
We hauled all our goodies home and made a quick lunch of personal pan pizzas (Chris had pepperoni, I had cheese) and a handful of Pop Chips. I realized that a serving of Pop Chips (120 calories) is 20 chips! That’s a lot of chips considering these are so airy and filling…interesting! We always feel like we eat a ton at a time, but realized today we only eat about 10 before we get full of chips…good to know!
After lunch I had a small handful of Skittles – Chris is a good husband and ate all the icky purples.
We have a great arrangement in our marriage where Chris eats the purple skittles and the green Sour Patch Kids. Is there a color of candy that you dislike? Do you and your significant other fight over the good flavors??
After lunch I took a short nap but kept waking up with my tingly cough, bleh! I feel much better today but the cough and congestion are still kicking my butt. And, on top of the cold, I got a cold sore! I have been loading my lip up with Campho Phenique all day yesterday and today and it’s drying up already. Do you get cold sores/canker sores? They’re the pits!
All throughout the day I sprinkled in some cuddle time with our niece, Braeleigh, who was staying with her grandparents while her parents worked today. She is getting such a cute personality and loves to blow raspberries and smile.
Late this afternoon I ran over to the Boulder Running Company and Lululemon to cash in some gift cards – check out my loot!
I ended up purchasing a pair of Asics running pants at the BRC – they’re a super soft fleece-y feeling material and have a zipper up the calf and great zippered pockets. At Lululemon I got a new yoga mat that is much thicker and comfier than my old one – it’s black on one side and blue on the other. I got a matching blue yoga block and a green stretching belt (that doubles as a carrier, still have to figure out that part). I also got a giant bottle of mat cleaner – the bottle says you can even use it to spray down your elliptical/treadmill after a workout! Definitely going to put that to use when we buy a house and I set up my gym! The spray has a really yummy mint smell 🙂
Dinner was a surprise trip to Chick-Fil-A and I didn’t get a picture but had an 8-piece chicken nugget meal with waffle fries and a small fruit punch 😀 The rest of the evening was spent loving on our niece, playing Wii and chatting.
Now we’re winding down for the evening and I need to hit the water – hard, I’m so thirsty all of a sudden! I also hear a Bryer’s all natural fruit popsicle calling my name 😉
I hope you had a wonderful 2nd day of 2010 and I hope you have a very wonderful Sunday tomorrow!
