Wellness Wednesday

Yesterday after I got home from work I was so hungry. We had just about no food in our house and I really wanted something before heading out for a ride with Jason. I saw one yogurt left in our frig ... score! So I made a smoothie with a water base (yes I had nothing else to drink in the house) and added some frozen strawberries and bananas that I had cut up last week and the vanilla yogurt. It turned out pretty yummy and made my stomach happy!
But, we never made it to our ride as it looked like it was about to rain any minute and I thought why not go to city bikes to check out pedals and go to the grocery store.
At the store I picked up lots of yummy things that I can use as snacks. Blueberries, grapes, bananas, apples, no salt almonds, granola bars, etc. My question is, why is fruit or anything that is healthy expensive! Damn Harris Tetter.
On a side note I have not drank a beer or anything for that matter for almost 2 months now. I'm going to the DC 101 chili cookoff on Sat and know I will be surrounded with people drinking, including Jason. I am not sure if I really want to drink because I am nervous that one or two will turn into me blacking out and not being able to do a damn thing on Sunday.
Cheers it's Wed!


  1. Did you decide to get bike shoes or are you still shoppping around?

  2. The price of fresh veggies and fruit KILLS me. I've been working on a food budget and calculating where all my money goes and umm.. it's on berries and fricking green beans! Sad!

  3. That smoothie looks delicious! I was thinking of buying last minute tickets to the cookoff if the weather is nice. I'll let you know if I go

  4. I'm a non drinker, and I think it is easier to never drink than to cut back. I also think it makes training easier - no poor sleeping, dehydration, etc. BUT everybody's experience is different.
