What a relief

After my easy workout yesterday and a great night’s sleep, I have NO PAIN today. Whatever it was that was bothering my leg and/or hips is completely gone. I told the husband last night when we went to bed that if I woke up in a lot of pain, it was time to get a new matress, haha. Guess that scared it off?

The Fage + Pumpkin + Almonds combo ended up being a really good snack yesterday afternoon, which I knew it would be…

Unfortunately, I got hungry for this at 1:00, so I was aching for another snack come 4. And also having a strange craving for some artificially sweetened cherry bubbles…

The bar was good, hadn’t had one of these in a while! But the diet wild cherry pepsi was BLECH! I used to LOVE these and while it tasted okay, it didn’t sit well with me. I’m pretty sure I got whatever that was out of my system. I will only compromise once in a blue moon for some Coke Zero. Everything else is crap 😉

I stopped at Whole Foods on the way home to pick up some much needed yogurt stash and some ingredients for the salad I made for girl’s night. My husband texted me while I was there asking for ketchup and cheese slices. I don’t think he realized I was at Whole Foods because he made a face when he saw “organic” cheese and 365 tomato ketchup in the fridge, haha. But once he tried them, he had no complaints. Plus, the price was pretty much the same as it would’ve been at Kroger. I’m thinking of switching over more purchases to WF. Hmm…

Here’s my stash!

Ooh, I forgot about the Luna “cookie” and another package of Spirutein! I love the Chocolate PB stuff, can you tell?

Produce stash!

Whole Foods has 3 lb bag of apples on sale for $1.99! And the Annie’s dressing was $2.50 🙂

While putting away groceries and making my salad, I got hungry AGAIN, so I had a spoonful of PB to hold me over.

And now the beautiful, colorful salad!

This huge bowl contained:

  • 3-4 cups of spinach
  • 2/3 of large cucumber (from above picture)
  • Handful of mini carrots, chopped
  • 1 Braeburn apple, cored and chopped
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp Annie’s light honey mustard vinaigrette dressing

I had some spinach left over which is good because I want to make another salad tomorrow night (we’re having pizza takeout from Papa Murphy’s) and perhaps a green monster is in the works too? 😉

Now for the rest of dinner…Beth made a really tasty tuna-pasta salad, Court provided carrots and “spicy” Sabra hummus, and then my salad.

Oops, the flash kind of bleached out the tuna salad and hummus 😦

For dessert, Margie, or Marge-Dog as we love to call her, brought some brownies she made, YUM! I hadn’t had a brownie in a while and this really hit the spot 🙂

I ended up going back for another 1/2, plus some Peppermint tea, and a few handfuls of these bad boys:

I ❤ Jelly Beans!

When I got to the point where I felt like I might be overdoing it, I chugged some water and popped in a piece of minty gum. Works every time! Almost…hehe.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Wednesday, thank God its almost Friday!

Off to my last Anatomy & Physiology class, finals next week, ahhh!! 😉
