Hey girls! I’ve had yet another really good day. I saw the bf (only for a bit though! 😦 ), went grocery shopping, had an awesome workout, ate delicious food, and tanned while getting some more summer reading finished! Sadly, the visit with the boyfriend was only for ~10 minutes. He’s been in a lot of pain today and couldn’t even make it to church. So a quick visit/pick-me-up was in order. I brought him vanilla concrete with peanut butter fudge from an ice cream place. (Just to add, that I had a few bites because it was getting melty and it was either that, or get ice cream all over my J-Crew shorts. Uh-uh, not gonna happen! LOL, delicious 😀 )
Let’s get started, shall we?
Breakfast this morning was a yummy bowl of Cranberry TOTAL cereal, topped with a peach and skim milk. Delightful! Lunch was a new combo for me! Laughing cow+green apple on a whole grain wrap. I was a bit un-sure at first, but this ended up being delicious! If you haven’t already, try this combo! Served with pretzels with the remaining LC.
After lunch, I layed out in the sun while reading 25 pages (so for around 45-50 minutes?) It felt wonderful and then I went for a dip in the pool. Wow, this is the life 🙂
Grocery shopping was next to do! I think I’ve changed my mind—Harris Teeter is my favorite over-all grocery store, but Kroger has the best selection of natural/organic/etc things in my opinion. (It also has some of the best prices! Like 3.50 for PB Puffins) But if given the opportunity, I’d choose H.T. 🙂
Here’s our haul:
- braeburn apples
- sweet aazz apples
- a BUNCH (like 16!) of bananas
- 3 sweet potatoes
- Strawberry Fields Kashi Cereal
- 2 kinds of Trail Mix (Berry Blend (?), and Breakfast Blend)
- Maranatha AB (which I got for 1.99 bc of coupon+on sale at store)
- Skippy PB
- Stevia (excited to use this!)
- Odwalla Bar
- Blueberry Z-bar
- 3 Chobanis (including the peach!!!)
- 5 stonyfield yogurts (for 2.50!!!)
That, clearly, is not all we got! We saved around 70 dollars (through coupons and store savings), which is beyond awesome!
Not long after putting away groceries, my dad and I were off to the gym! I did a sweat, hill-y 45 minutes on the elliptical (including 5 min. cool down) followed by foam roller and some yoga poses/stretching. Man, do I love yoga! I think, as K said on my last post, I feel like a HEAB-er! 🙂 Which is not a bad thing at alllll!
The teacher whom I love will no longer be teaching the Sunday class, so…I’m thinking of starting to go to the 5:00 pilates class at my gym. It looks like a great, low-key class and I know how much GC loves her pilates 😉 Any thoughts??
I’m feeling wonderful. My body is happy, my belly is happy, I’m just all around happy!

I really don’t think I could choose certain bloggers for this award! I think that pretty much all of you write from your heart. So, if you haven’t gotten this award yet, consider yourself tagged. Seriously, tag yourself!!
10 things about me? Hmm…I’m gonna copy Shelby and give one each post! I don’t even think I can come up with 10 at once, haha.
1. I have a reverent-fear for the monkey bars. I got a concussion when I was in 5th grade while trying to jump like four bars (yeah, I’m a smarty-pants!). Luckily I’m much taller now so I wouldn’t have to worry about falling far 😉
Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy 6:16 (according to/found here)
You shall not put the LORD your God to the test.
Well, girlies. I’ve gotta run and get stuff laid out for basketball tomorrow. Haven’t been in three weeks due to my wrist and camp counselor stuff. Hmm, should be interesting. Please wish me luck. It’s not like I haven’t picked up a basketball in that long, but still! My wrist still isn’t 100% as well…
