And I r-u-nnnn…
I’ve been feeling rather cruddy for a day or two. Kind of like I’m on the brink of getting sick but not actually getting sick. Don’t know if it’s from traveling, just tired, not exercising, or what. So I did what any normal person would do.
I went for a run.
A test run I guess. I didn’t have a plan in mind, just walked out the door and went. I figured I’d stick close to the neighborhood so it’d be easy to stop if I was hurting. Knock on wood, I’m happy to say I don’t feel any worse than before I started!
I kept it light today (I’m guessing a mile and a half), and will try to jump back on schedule tomorrow.
I wasn’t really in the mood for lunch, but I ate anyway in case it’d help make me feel better.
Butternut Squash Ravioli from Lean Cuisine (I told you, groceries needed ASAP!)
Not bad really. I kind of liked it. But if that’s twice the veggies what the heck is in the normal ones? 4 peas and a carrot?
I’m working on a grocery list since I’m seriously out of food, so I thought I’d share my process with you.
First I go through my grocery store’s weekly ad (I get it emailed me to me every Weds). I go through and mark anything I think I might want and email a list to myself
Then I look for coupons that match the things on my list. I check online sites like coupons.com, then search for individual product coupons. (That way I get double savings when I use the coupon on sale items!)
After that, I think of what I want to eat for the week, going through recipes if I feel like it, or just thinking of what I like to have. Then I fill in the blanks on my list and go!
The best part of this week’s shopping is that I get to go to Whole Foods!! Once a month I work in a city near a Whole Foods, so I take advantage of it and stop by. Since it’s expensive, I use it more as a supplement to my regular shopping, not instead of. I usually only come out with about 2 items or so.
I usually stick to things I can’t get at the regular ol’ grocery store, but the veggies have been so sad looking this winter, I’m looking forward to checking out WF’s selection.
Where do you do your food shopping?
