I went grocery shopping at Weis this morning. I always hit the produce section first and today it was a JOY to go through there! I found a veggie tray, a bag of Chiquita pre-sliced apples, full pineapple, and a bowl of melon chunks for 99 cents each. I bought stuff to make low-fat macaroni & cheese (made with 2% cheddar, fat-free cottage cheese, & fat-free ricotta cheese... as well as fat-free evaporated milk) and I've eaten one serving of that plus the melon chunks and some veggies today.

I think I might make another grocery store trip at some point this week to get some fat-free sour cream and hidden valley ranch mix and some veggies. I forget how much I like veggies and dip until I eat it again.

Lucy and I did a 6-mile walk on the Rail Trail this afternoon. I didn't realize how far we had gone until we got back to the parking lot and I grabbed a trail guide. It was quite the hike for her little beagle legs! I would love to do the entire trail, but unfortunately, I have guilt issues with walking without her and her little body can't handle much more than the 6 miles we did today. She fell asleep as soon as we got in the car and I literally had to carry her downstairs to go pee pee.. she wanted to go to bed instead, lol.

This week, I'm not setting a very high fitness goal for myself. I have parent-teacher conferences until 8 PM on Monday and Wednesday which leaves little time for gym since the one I go to closes at 9. I discovered that I can get workouts on demand, so I'm going to do either yoga or a Leslie Sansone 2-mile walk these days after I get home. Tuesday and Thursday will definitely be ass-kicking gym days, as well as Friday since it's a 1/2 day at school.

This is the most random post ever.. I just needed to sort things out in my head.


  1. Hey, it's my blog twin! :) Lucy sounds like a trooper. Maybe you need a puppy snugglie.

  2. She IS a trooper.. she would walk for 50 miles if I wanted to! I am considering getting a little puppy backpack, but she's a good 30-pounds, lol. On the other hand, it might make the walks even BETTER.
