Hi! Are you all having great weekends?
My weekend starting getting a WHOLE lot better Saturday afternoon after my antibiotics started taking full effect. I was able to get into my doctor Friday afternoon and was told that I had a sinus infection. She prescribed me Antibiotics + Claritin D + Mucinex D + Mega-Doses of Ibuprofen. WOAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH – I was pretty much in a drug-induced haze so Kyle had to take a cab home from the airport! He’s so lucky to come home from Puerto Rico to a drugged wife and a snowy-freezing cold climate ;)
Anyways, yesterday was pretty chill. I ran some errands in the morning, including a visit to Trader Joe’s. I haven’t been to Trader Joe’s in MONTHS and I forgot how affordable their organic produce is. I was able to purchase most of our weekly ingredients for less than $50. At Whole Foods this would have easily been over $100… TJ’s, you have a fan and I’ll be back every week!
I was tempted to purchase the “Cookie Butter” that I’ve seen a lot of blogger’s mention but the ingredient list freaked me out. I didn’t like that it included at least 3 different types of sugar and ingredients that I didn’t think should be in a form of peanut butter. I’m sure it tastes fantastic but I’m happy to have saved myself the $4 :)
I also started my February Foodie Pen Pal shopping! I have one more thing to get and then the wonderful package is going in the mail :)
The rest of the day, we basically bummed around the condo – napped, walked Mitchell, watched the Iowa State game and did a little cleaning. For dinner, I FINALLY got to use my new Le Creuset cocettes that Kyle got me for my birthday! I made individual servings of French Onion Soup. It cheesy and gooey and delicious. We also ate our weight in bread - bread (and cheese) is what makes this soup so fantastic.
Okay, so now onto health goals. Workouts are going to be a little slow this week. I want to recover 100% before I push myself super hard. As for my meal plan, I didn’t end up making a lot of what I planned to last week so you’ll see a lot of repeats below.
I am on Day 10 of Jamie’s Intuitive Eating Challenge and starting today we are focusing on eating whatever we want and/or are craving but only eating when we are hungry. This one will be tough for me since I tend to graze and eat what is put in front of me. I am really going to pay attention to my hunger cues and drink TONS of water so I am not eating due to dehydration.
