Bread Outlet Run

February 6th, 2010 at 10:12 am

Today was a Hallelujah day.

Since no work this weekend, I decided to run to aerobics early in the morning. Dh felt up to giving it a try. (& when I got home, still seemed okay - kids didn't push him too hard). Hallelujah!

Oh - was going to run to the store, but his mom offered. I said, "okay," since I was so tired, anyway. Didn't think twice about it. Came home to some weird hamburger buns! Ugh. In the end, they didn't taste so bad, but the kids whined the whole time, and then dh whined when she left. Oy vey.

SO, I told dh *I* would do all the grocery shopping from now on. LOL. I didn't think about it at the time - lord knows why. I already told you about her interesting grocery choices.

SO, I told dh I was going to run out and get some normal bread, since she bought the god awful sandwich bread again (not quite sure what it is - but it tastes terrible!).

& dh, being well rested, asked why I didn't just run to the bread store. Doh!

I suppose it works out that the bread store is by my aerobics class. I hadn't been there in ages, and I only stock up on the bread (& cookies and donuts) when I am working out.

They were clearing out some Holiday cookies, so grabbed some of those, and some donuts, for work. Seems to be a good compromise. I can eat one or 2 cookies or donuts, but don't get stuck with the whole thing. For a buck a piece, it creates much fellow employee goodwill. Big Grin

Of course, then I spotted the iced oatmeal cookies. YUM!

Then, got some tortillas for a buck, and some free bread. I am up to "2 free items" again.

So, was nice to get some "normal food," and I feel so much more relaxed having been able to go to aerobics/yoga. I snuck off to the gym once this week too (with the kids), so has been a good week. There is no gym daycare tomorrow, but may drop the kids off at the drop-in childcare place for a bit so that I can go to the gym. They better get used to it anyway.

I did so much walking at the hospital that I figure I really only had one week of NO EXERCISE. The week I was sick anyway. Phew... Feels good to get back into the swing of things - it really helps my stress level. Most people may hit the gym to lose weight or stay fit - but I do it to stay SANE!

-----------------------------------------

I am planning to cook 3-4 meals this weekend, so I better get cooking...
