Due to me doing my in-store internship Tues-Sat. I got today off! Yup, 3-day weekend baby! And after that intense Bears game last night, I needed the day off 😉
By 9am, I had 2 loads of laundry done, dish washer unloaded, floors vacuumed. flowers planted, and shopping completed at Whole Foods. Then, I had my training session, one more errand, and to the pool I went! I took a long shower, smeared a fancy clay mask on my face, read some magazines, and now catching up on my blog. 🙂
All in all, a nice relaxing day!
In the past 24 hours I have been to 4, yes 4, different grocers…partly my fault for forgetting things, partly because it is difficult to find GOOD food.
It felt like I had hit the lottery when I went to Safeway. Safeway is the closest grocer where I have the best luck finding organic food and grass-fed meats. Well, apparently I am the only one who purchases the grass-fed beef because it all was on sale over 50% due to the expiration date. Hello, people! We have freezers for a reason! So, I snatched up everything and made a run for it. I was excited to make more jerky and enjoy fillet mignon. I also discovered new sausages – I can only eat so much Aidell’s Chicken and Apple Sausage. I have not tried them yet, but I got Applegate organic uncured beef hotdogs, Open Nature Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic, and Al Fresco country style Chicken Sausage with sage and thyme.
Sprouts has asparagus on sale – I love me some asparagus wrapped in prosciutto! Remember: Wednesday is DOUBLE AD DAY! I was not sure if magazines about Paleo existed, that is until I found this (see below) at Sprouts! As soon as I am done typing I am making a cup of tea and settling in with this read! Paleo Magazine has diet, exercise, and over-all healthy living tips.
I decided to make my own ghee…it was a success, but what a pain in the @ss! I suggest spending the extra money and buying it. I know I will next time!
Once, again, the roomie is off traveling for work. Poor thing was sent to HAWAII this time…don’t you feel so bad for him (BOO!)?
Have a wonderful week everyone!
