Good afternoon! I can't believe it's 3:00 already! I feel like today is really flying by weeeeeee! I've been studying/doing crazy work all day, but woke up, ate my ushe for bfast and got my tush onto writing my paper early so I could go to step! Fabulous, as ushe, and I just finished writing a huge paper for English that is due at 4:30. I'm going to go proof read it one last time in a little bit, but I just wanted to say hi and apologize for the lack of pictures recently! I don't have much time but felt that a grocery trip picture show was in order!
Sunday I went to WF and it was so great! Well, duh, it's Whole Foods, my mothership, of course it's going to be! I went after working out and eventhough it was around 12:30-ish they had an omelet bar set up! It was so pretty. They had regular eggs, eggology eggwhites, eggbeaters, and even egg substitute for Vegans! And every type of veggie/cheese/soy cheese/meat/soy-meat and anything else you could ever want. I overheard one woman ask for something (couldn't hear what, exactly, she was asking for) but they noticed they didn't have the item and replied, "that's the beauty of being in a supermarket!" How cute is that? Unfortunately, I didn't get an omelet, seeing that I had already eaten breakfast and had just finished my workout/wasn't hungry yet (I told you my classic cc+fruit fills me like nothing else!). We were really low on food, so I stocked up, and didn't have time to take a picture! However, I did manage to snap a few from last week's trip! So enjoy ! (Keep in mind that this is for a family of four and despite the fact that it probably looks like a ridiculous amount of food, I'm always having to run out to supplement a couple of times throughout the week... Not complaining though; I love being my family's market bitch. My dad also goes to our regular supermarket to get other stuff: My brother's cereal (he's a cereal freak...I'm going to take a picture of his Cereal cabinet in the kitchen just to show you guys! It's ABSURD) and Lactaid CC (yay), Lactaid milk (Jim's), etc. That stuff is so much cheaper at regular markets! Ok, enough of $ talk... Sorry, I, personally hate talking about $. It drives me nuts and it's not very polite!
Fruit :) 2 Watermelons, 3 Honeydews, 2 Cantaloups, 2 containers organic strawberries, 5 kiwis, 2 containers grape tomatoes
Cut fruit for James' lunch! (He likes to keep this at work)

Protein stuff: Eggs, Ground Chicken Breast, Turkey Meatloaf, Firm Tofu, Smart Strips Chik'n + Beef, Quorn Cutlets, WF Turkey Breast, Mahi Mahi Frozen Fillets
Prepared Stuff: ANNIE's Rasberry Vinagrette Dressing, Quorn Cutlets, Smart Strips Chik'n + Steak, 2 WF salads (the best salad bar ever): 1 for my dinner when I have class til 9pm on thursdays + 1 for my mommy's lunch!, WF Cranberry Tuna Salad for Jim's lunch, 2 X WF Ginger-Shitaki Chicken Salad (UNBELIEVABLE.) Great for quick lunches/dinners! And two types of sushi (for the brother): Spicy Tuna + Avocado (Brown Rice), Eel + Cucumber (Purple Multigrain Rice...so pretty!)
Salad Toppers for my mom to take to work!
Organic Pastry Flour, Z Bars, LUNA bars (Jim/Dad takes to work), Zone Bar
The first time I bought these for him he was like, "Umm, These are for women..." LOL, I think that's weird and kind of discriminating...
Nosey Mylo! (He loves WF too! Obvi...He's my cat!)
Many of you have heard me discuss the GNU Bars...I'm obsessed with them. Their nutritional stats are unbelievable, in my opinion, and these two flavors are my favorites. The Orange Cranberry literally smells and tastes just like orange zest/juice! It's fantastic and I highly recommend them! (I get mine at GNC/Vitamin Shoppe because my WF doesn't always have them...laaaame )
New bar! Really bad...Refrain from purchasing, lovebugs...
Good Nutritionals though! (Shame they stank)
And last but CERTAINLY not least! The most A.mazing tea ever! I am already 1/2 way through the pack and I drink decaf tea all day, all the time. I don't do caffeine as a general preference so I love tea for its flavor not it's "boost"... It's such a relaxer for me. I let this tea steep for hours sometimes (if I can stand it) and the smells are out of this world. The taste is pure joy. Mmm! You must try it! (It's times like these I wish we had blog-smellivision)
I took my test and did very well! Yay! I'm now off to bed. Step tomorrow morning, so excited. And then work, home and more work! I'll be posting food pics tomorrow!
(PS) I cut my finger at work today... And I'm not posting a pic bc it's G.R.O.S.S.
Unless you want me to
