Grocery day!

My day off – yay!  Thank you for all your thoughts on the 1/2 marathon.  Still not sure what I will do, but there is no rush.  What I find hard is to not think of it as a failure if I don’t do it.  I know this is really a nonsense thought, but there it is 🙂

I was surprised that my legs weren’t sore at all when I got up after yesterday’s run.  Funny how running doesn’t bother my legs that much, but strength training can really give me soreness.  They were kind of tired, though.

Had a nice relaxing breakfast and decided to prep for blueberry picking with the last of my frozen ones!


No strength workout today, since I needed a day off and I am getting together with my sister to show her NROLW tomorrow morning!

I decided to really stock up on the berries, as they said maybe a week to 10 days left of picking.  Not sure what I will do after that….  Anyway – I got a huge bucket full:


That’s about 8 pounds! Yum!  I have frozen half so far.

It’s hot here today!  I decided to bike to the library and had a backpack on to return my books.  I was totally soaked by the time I got there.  This is where I noticed how tired my legs were from the run yesterday.  I was going pretty slow.  After browsing, I met John at Ridge street for an iced coffee and a cookie (we each had one)


Nice and cool!  It was a hot ride home, but at least I only had a couple books and they could fit into the bag on the bag of my bike.  Phew.  It has not been a hot summer so far. My parents brought over a window air conditioning unit that they aren’t using, so we will have one downstairs.  Happy days!

Eating dregs for dinner – Baked tostitos with cooked chicken breast and cheese under the broiler – topped with salsa.  It was quite good, actually.


Plus a side of blueberries!

I couldn’t take it anymore and went grocery shopping.  We haven’t been in about 2 weeks!

Here is my haul:



Got a few new things this week:  Pineapple (on sale!), plus whole wheat mini bagels and some black plums.  I also got a box of TLC pumpkin spice bars – I am kind of excited to try those! There is a veggie in this picture that will make a Great Veggie Experiment debut this week!

Guess I will cut this short and get to bed soon.  It’s pretty late and I have an early wake up call for lifting tomorrow!  Colleen promised me breakfast afterwards – yay!

    Bahaha, 8 lbs of blueberries, you are too funny Lori 😛 Is berry picking any cheaper than buying from the store? A lot of our farms around here couldn’t do the u-pick stuff this summer because it was so wet – the fruit all rotted!

    I spy a brown lump in those groceries that might be the experiment? Can’t wait to see it! Have fun lifting with your sis today!

      It is cheaper to pick your own blueberries around here. Not by a lot, but the berry quality is much better! Yum! I think I need to go into some berry recovery program or something.

      And nope – it wasn’t the brown thing (that’s a sweet potato) 😀

    Gonna have some of those pancakes and blueberries for breakfast this morning, now that I saw them in a picture again LOL. Looks like you did some healthy shopping!
