^^ Me in lululemon. I love that store; but ugh, cannot afford it right now!
Pre-shopping fuel. In the form of salad.
I’ve got romaine, avocado, grapes, carrots, chicken and goat cheese, topped with the strawberry vanilla vinaigrette I picked up a few weeks ago.
Although this salad sounded and looked awesome, for some reason I was just not feeling it. I ended up eating the toppings, tossing out most of the lettuce and going back for a few pretzels instead.
Umm..who am I? I love salads, but lately I’ve been struggling with them a bit. Maybe I’m just burnt out on them? Or maybe it was the dressing – it’s weirdly sweet and I don’t think I like it much.
(Why didn’t I looooove you?!?)
I think I’m going to have to find some new ways to get a ton of veggies in for a little while. My salad love will come back, it always does. 🙂
As I said earlier, I was hitting up the mall with my friend Mel today. It’s her birthday in two weeks and she wanted to find a new dress.
Yea, nothing. All the ones we found that we liked, we couldn’t afford. You win some, you lose some! I think we’re going to head out to the mall across town next weekend – we’ll find something.
The trip wasn’t a total loss though – I was almost out of my precious Peanut Butter Chocolate Whey Gourmet. Aka – my favourite protein powder in existence. I made sure to restock.
And, they had a buy-one-get-one-half off-deal. Mel’s been going to the gym and meeting with a personal trainer for about 3-4 months now, and she’s looking awesome! She’s never tried protein powder before, so she picked up a tub of vanilla ice cream flavour to try out. We just split on the deal – yay protein powder for cheap!!
(p.s. no affiliation with the company whatsoever – I just love it a lot).
Also side note: I went into the Apple Store for the first time. Anyone else find that place absolutely terrifying? Why are there so many people?!
I talked to one of their “geeks” about my Ipod situation – basically, they’ll let me trade it in for the same model, half the price of a brand new one. Still, that’s $100. I can buy a lot of food with that. So right now, I’m gonna think about it and borrow Eric’s old ghetto MP3 player in the meantime. 🙂
I snacked a lot throughout the afternoon (some of Mel’s smoothie, Popchips, Smart Food popcorn, sunflower seeds) and by the time I got home from dropping Mel off it was 9:45 pm. I wasn’t too hungry and just wanted something quick.
Precooked chicken that I defrosted in the microwave, tzatziki, and peas. I love it when my dinners happen in 3.5 minutes. 🙂
Although, I guess I was hungrier than I thought I was, because this happened 45 minutes later.

Ok, now I’m good.
Today, my eating just felt off to me. Lack of salad love and not hungry for dinner. I just seemed to want snack food all day. Definitely weird, but I’ll just roll with it and see what happens tomorrow.
<– Any stores that you love that you feel are overpriced?
<– What protein powder do you use?
