Um – I actually hate double dippers. Well.. party scene double dippers. (I won’t lie, I double, triple, quadruple dip in my own containers.. but that doesn’t count).
But seriously — at a party – please refrain from taking a nice big glop of dip onto your veggie, cracker, chip.. taking a bite (or even worse, LICKING IT OFF) … and then going back for seconds. Kthanks.
But that is not the type of double dipping I am talking about today. Nahh.
And.. seriously… other then those two things, I’ve got nothing for ya. I have done nothing all day.. because like I mentioned earlier today, I FEEL LIKE POOP (still)! I’ve pretty much been laying around feeling miserable, wishing, hoping, praying for my energy and vibrance to return to me 😉
For the second week in a row, Justin and I remained under $100 for our main grocery trip!! That usually does not happen – but it is always feels kind of nice when it does.
As far as budgeting for groceries – we have kind of a lax budget – we aim to spend around $115 a week – but it is not the end of the world if we spend $130 .. or more! We saved $20 on our bill today – LOVE ME SOME SAVINGS!
Here are the goods:
Baby carrots (x2); sugar snap peas, red pepper (x2); yellow pepper; onion;zucchini; cilantro; thyme *Justin pronounced thyme with the th sound.. just like Allen pronounced Thailand.. with the th sound in Hangover 2….

Vanilla unsweetened Almond Breeze; Steamfresh frozen veggie; family size bag of mixed frozen berries (um.. originally $10.. we got it for $4…); eggs; strawberry Orbit; deli meat (turkey)

How I am Feeling:
Well – as I mentioned both yesterday and this morning, I am feeling pretty lousy TODAY! But – the rest of the week, I was feeling great! The rain has stopped and I can get outside when I want to get outside.. and run, run, run. After my failed fueling post-run yesterday, I’ve been left to feel pretty beat down, but I know that is something that can be fixed easily.
So – now that the weather has finally brightened up, I am totally having a hard time cross training.. strength training.. and doing cardio OTHER then running. (Elliptical, stair master). I have the same debate in my head.. every afternoon on my drive home from work.. Gym.. or run. Run wins.. when it is nice out. I really don’t want running to be my only form of cardio.
What I’d Like to See Next Week:
Yes, I know I didn’t refelct on last weeks goals.. because there WAS NO LAST WEEK! I am kind of back tracking to goals that I set earlier in this series, because it seems as if I have lost sight of them.. and am on a run only function! My main goal is to mix my workouts up again!
- Strength Train 3x
- Interval Training Run to help build speed
- One day of Cardio other then running
I am SO excited for two things.. ONE – The PREMIER OF THE NEXT FOOD NETWORK STAR~ 🙂 🙂
And TWO – THE BAKING FOR BOOBIES BAKESALE KICKS OFF TOMORROW MORNING AT 7:00am!! So – be sure to check it out! 🙂
For now, I am off to do some more of nothing. Justin is even cooking dinner tonight! What a guy!
So – Foodwise – how do you budget for groceries – how tight to do stick to that budget?
Do you have a weekly training plan? Do you stick to it? Find it hard to go to the gym to do certain things – when all you want to do is be outside? Maybe I should buy some more weights so I can strength train outdoors too!
