The Long weekend is here, at last!!! I have no plans for the weekend, I'm just going to stay home and relax!! I plan to do a workout tonight and on Monday :) Tomorrow, if it's not raining, I'll go for a run.
Today I went for groceries and now my kitchen is nicely stocked :) I have kiwis and cherries for snacks, and I've got corn on the cob, and 2 individual packs of mixed veggies (red peppers, zucchini, cabbage, squash, red cabbage and carrots) and a pack of enoki mushrooms. I picked up a pack of chicken and some steaks. no potatos or rice. I'm trying to cut down on carbs, especially since I eat rice every day for lunch at school.
I also got some oatmeal from Kimberly and I've got a bit of brown sugar and some maple syrup and I'm going to try to make some oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow.
I bought meat, veggies, fruit, milk, water, cheese and detergent and I spent $51.26 plus $5 on the cab ride home. I still need to buy some bread later in the week as I only have enough for 3 days left. Why is food so expensive? Junk food is so cheap, but anything good for you is expensive..and people wonder why there are so many overweight people. A lot of people just can't afford to eat right. I saw a picture on facebook not too long ago. the reason why kids are overweight is because it's 99 cents for a hamburger and McDonald's and $3.99 for a salad. It's cheaper to buy pop than it is to buy milk or juice. I mean, really? It really aggravates me.
So, now that I've got that out of my system.. lol I feel somewhat better.
I eddited a speach for one of the students at one of my schools this week and write letters to students from that same school who had written me letters. In return for that, the teacher brought me chocolate and cake when he came to pick it all up yesterday. So now I have junk food that I really want to eat, but really isn't part of my diet. it's my favourite kind of cake too. :( lol
So it's a long weekend and I'm going to indulge in a small bottle of coke with dinner tonight. I limit myself to one pop a week either Friday night or Saturday. Not every week, but occasionally.
