Grocery Shopping Early to Follow Through on my Meal Plan

Sunday, September 11, 2016

DH and I went shopping yesterday after I taught my 75 minute yoga class. It was no surprise and to my delight that a young couple from Wakarusa returned to my class after they were in my thoughts and conversation this past week. I love it when this happens, you know, like when someone comes into your awareness and you hear from them or "run into" them.

DH and I found an "I Love You" book to record and a ballerina fairy dress complete with wings and wand for our granddaughter who is celebrating her 4th birthday today.

We stopped in at Alladin's, a mediterranean restaurant for a mid-afternoon lunch yesterday. The waitress recommended hot sauce in homemade vegetable soup served with feta cheese on top. I tried it with a little hot sauce (afterall I'm a Spicy Sparkologist this BLC 32 round, right?) after eating most of the nutrient dense soup and liked it. With this kapha dosha, I need the hot spices such as turmeric, cayenne, cinnamon, et cetera to "kick up" my metabolic burner.

We left early this morning to buy the groceries I need to follow through with the biometric food plan that was supplied by the fitness club that I work for. I wanted to be prepared for this coming week before traveling to Fort Wayne (a 2 hour drive each way) this afternoon for the birthday party.

It is my intention to climb out of the truck and walk and stretch my legs when DH makes his frequent stops along the way to have a smoke. He doesn't smoke in our trucks nor in our home, and for that I am thankful, but oh, as a non-smoker how I wish he could give up his tobacco habit/addiction!!!!

    What an adorable fairy outfit!

    I can sympathize on traveling with a smoker. Years ago, we drove from Michigan to Arizona non-stop with my father-in-law for my husband's grandfather's funeral (we were newly engaged and both in college, so we couldn't afford airfare) and my FIL had to stop about every 30 minutes to smoke... but at least he wasn't smoking in the car. As it was, I couldn't sit behind him in the car because I'm allergic to smoke and the air conditioner blowing past him was enough to trigger my asthma.

    I have had that happen too, I think of someone and I run into them. I love the little ballerina fairy dress, so cute. Sounds like you had a very nice day. Glad DH does not smoke in the truck or home, but I am with you, be nice if he could quit.

    Hope you have a great week. emoticon

    Way to go, Lee. You are in BLC Spicy Sparkologist mode for sure!! You can do this. I know you'll have a great time at the birthday party and your gift is perfect for Emma. She will enjoy the 'I Love You' book and will be able to hear your words even when you cannot be close enough to whisper them in her ear! The ballerina goes without need of comment, it's perfect! I like you plan to get out of the car when Doug does, it will be good for your feet and legs to stretch and get some circulation moving during the ride. Safe travels! emoticon
