Good Morning! Happy Sunday :)
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. It is bright and sunny and ABOVE freezing outside this morning (yay!!!) so my plans for the day are a 5-mile run, 2-mile walk with Kyle and Mitchell, a little baking and yoga tonight.
On Friday night, Kyle and I cashed in a Groupon for Nami – a sushi bar in downtown Minneapolis. We ordered a variety of sashimi and one roll and it was delicious, as always. After enjoying our sushi and wine, we headed to Barrio for some margarita action! It was National Margarita Day and I couldn’t not partake in this holiday :)
Saturday morning, I ran to Lululemon to pick up a couple of pairs of Wunder Unders that I had to get shortened. Thankfully they have free alterations for us short people ;) While there, I had a gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket so I picked up a new jacket (that was on sale – only $59 from the original $150 – woot!!) and a pair of Ebb and Flow pants. Lululemon is one of my all-time favorite retailers, next to Target and Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and Nordstroms. And if you are wondering, yes, I may have a shopping problem.
After my shopping spree, I headed to Trader Joe’s to pick up our weekly groceries. I didn’t go grocery shopping last week so I had A LOT to buy yesterday. I ended up spending $116 but that included flowers and some other random items that I thought I needed at the time. Considering that we have a bad habit of blowing over $100 when we go out to eat, feeding the two of us for breakfast/lunch/dinner for $116/week is pretty good!
The rest of the day was spent cleaning, going on a 3-mile run, a sweaty, hot yoga sesh, prepping my fruits and veggies for the week and watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower to end the night.
This week, my health (and financial health!) goal is to stop buying so many lunches out at work. It’s expensive, it isn’t the healthiest and it really isn’t even that good. I have planned LOTS of delicious, healthy meal options – from a few of my fellow bloggers – this week so I will have an abundance of lunch options to choose from this week.
