Yes, that’s me.
Here are some random things for today:
1.) My nephew Harper is doing really well lately. He is up to 3lbs1oz which I understand is still teeny, but he dipped under a pound after birth so he’s nearly trippled in size. He now (mostly) fits into preemie sized clothes, so they get to dress him up and he’s looking chubbier and more adorable each and every day. Prayers in numbers seem to be working!
2.) I signed up for another half marathon today!!!! I’m so excited to crush the time from my first half marathon and start training early next year for this race! My goal is to keep my running up to 5-6 miles between now and the end of the year and then start upping the mileage and doing more interval training like I did this weekend to improve my speed. The race is the National Suntrust Half Marathon on March 26, 2011.
3.) I had an awesome trip to the grocery store last night, though I left with way more than I intended. The bill was $58 before putting in my phone number and handing over my coupons, and after all those discounts came off it was only $36! Check it out:
- 2 bananas
- 2 oranges
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 heads of garlic
- chopped celery and onions
- 1 pound brussels sprouts
- Whole wheat linguini
- Dried Kidney Beans
- Dried Black Beans
- Dried Navy Beans
- 2 avocados (on sale for .97 cents for both!!)
- Fresh Express Spring Mix (Free Coupon from Foodbuzz Tastemakers)
- Arnold Sandwich Thins
- Nasoya pre-cubed tofu
- sliced almonds
- Minced Clams
- Canned mandarin oranges
- Chunky Almond Butter (free coupon from MaraNatha)
- Stonyfield yogurt – plain and black cherry (.50 cent coupon which they doubled)
- Ciao Bella Mango Sorbet
That’s a whole lotta loot for just $36, don’t you agree?
4.) Breakfast this morning was simple, but delicious.
Low-fat plain Stonyfield yogurt, half a grapefruit, 1/4 cup rolled oats, 1/2 serving walnuts, sprinkle of chia seeds. The only thing I didn’t like was how much thinner regular yogurt is than Greek – I almost forgot!
Are you a yogurt lover? Regular or Greek? What’s your favorite way to have it?
