A Little Emotional?

It is 1:09 pm.  I have accomplished more today than I had planned on, so I figure it is time to relax.  Lol.  I went to get gas in my car, picked up the hubs dry cleaning (shirts), and hit up Trader Joe's.  I wanted to get some things for this week's meals.  It was kind of a stock up trip, to be honest.  I spent a little more money than I normally would on a weekly grocery trip, but some of the things will definitely last a while, like the huge bag of rice I bought.  I plan on busting out the rice cooker this week.  For rice AND for some quinoa.  I can eat both of those things, right?

Lol, I am training for a marathon.  Of course I can eat carbs as long as they are clean carbs. 

Trader Joe's haul for the day included naan, brown rice, ground turkey, already cooked chicken strips (for salads), spinach, eggs, egg whites, greek yogurt, a bbq chicken pizza (J's fave, I don't like red onions), oats, sweet potato tortilla chips, one really big beer, frozen berries (for smoothies), and freeze dried strawberries.  I also stocked up on veggies at the farmer's market.  So I think that I am ready for cooking meals for the week.  I am HOPING that we're going to eat at home every night this week other than Saturday night when my dad comes to town.

So I am trying to take all of the different things that I have in my kitchen and turn them into real and healthy meals for my husband and I for the week.  That is my goal.  Healthy meals for two all week long.

I am feeling emotional today.  I think it is because J is not here.  He is in Toledo for the showing.  I am feeling like a big emotional pile of love today.  I am crying and messed up and snuggling with the dogs.  I wish he was here.  Oh, and Sex & the City is on TV.  That certainly doesn't help.  Yes, I have been crying on and off since I got home from Trader Joe's, lol.  Maybe sometimes you just gotta cry?

This week's work out plan is pretty similar to the last two weeks.  4 days of running, two days of strength training.  A little bit of elliptical for some crosstraining.  And I think I am going to go to a step class with Leah one night as well.  I have not been to this step class in years, so I wonder how similar it will be to when my friend Lara and I used to go pretty regularly.  I am not too worried about it, I am probably in better shape now than I used to be, so I should not worry too much, right?  I have been doing so much more running, etc, than I used to be.

I am supposed to be going to a girls night tonight.  Right now I am not sure that I am feeling up to it.  To be honest, I am a little hung over after yesterdays wings and beers.  I had three pints, which honestly is far less than I would drink at a normal evening at BWs. And I was only drinking Miller Lite so I have no idea what happened.  But I have a terrible headache right now, and I have no clue what to bring, so I am thinking I might just hang out at home. 

We will see how it goes...
