For some reason I’m just oozing with positivity today. I think mapping out my August on my google calendar put me in a really good mood! So much fun stuff! I saw a few comments inquiring about my Lexington trip! 😉 The news is that I have family there and….my parents are thinking about MOVING to Lexington this fall. So, at the end of the month I will be going up there with them, visiting family and helping them house-hunt. I ADORE Lexington and am so excited…I haven’t been back for a few years and I have desperately missed it. I’m going to try to have a reader meet-up while I’m there, so stay tuned! The sticky part of the situation is that I won’t have a car but hopefully it will work out–I love to meet y’all!
My 90 minute yoga flow class this morning was intense. It was all about the legs and we moved super super slow to really focus in on those muscles big time. When it was all over and we were laying in savasana, I put my palm on my quad and it was literally quivering. Two hours later and I am STILL jelly.
Since I knew I had errands to run before lunch, I snacked on this bar from the depths of my purse
Total and complete drool. I rarely eat Balance bars but this one was so incredibly tasty I might have to buy more. Also, it warded off my hunger for the next two hours…which was a good thing because its awful to be hungry at the grocery store…if you know what I mean. I already have a bit of a shopping problem, I don’t need my appetite to effect my debit card anymore than it already does!!
I honestly didn’t buy much at the store because I’m about to go to Costco. Yeah, its sort of a pain to go to two grocery stores in opposite directions but I only do this once every two weeks for the “major shop”. And, the deals on the produce at Costco are INSANE so its really silly for me to spend more to buy less at a regular grocery store. Plus, my mom and I split a lot of the stuff in bulk, which makes it even MORE affordable!
I did buy some Gatorade at Publix after what y’all said about hydrating and running in the heat. Confession: I LOVE GATORADE. As in, freakin’ adore the stuff. I would chug it every single day if I could…especially the blue kind. I never buy it because of that fact (it would be gone in a day), however, I’m going to start doing the 1/2 gatorade 1/2 water trick in my water bottle for my outside runs. I’m also going to drink some Gatorade the night BEFORE my run to see if that helps any. I have got to find a way to beat these headaches! I’m planning a 3 mile run outside tomorrow morning so I’m trying to hydrate all I can today to get ready for it. Your advice helped so much the other day…thank you!! 🙂
Lunch was incredibly quick—-a Morningstar farms black bean burger with cheddar cheese and hot sauce in a whole wheat pita with an applesauce on the side!
Yummy all natural soda! This one tasted like cream soda (my favorite childhood soda) with sort of a floral note. Its very sweet (obviously) so a little goes a long way!
Time for wholesale! I shall return!
