Goals & Groceries.


I wanted to introduce you to my second home. Well, that's not the one here but you get the idea. Yes, I feel like I LIVE in the Meijer store. It's right by my office & super convenient. I do love grocery shopping & in the winter it's perfect since I can leave everything in the truck instead of lugging perishables up to the office fridge.

I'm at the store at least 3 times a week for produce, meat, etc. I used to stock up once a week but produce spoils fast & I got screwed with bad meat a couple times so that stopped. Now I get what I need when I need it..especially from the meat department. I get tired of going actually & have somehow turned into my Dad's personal shopper too! When I'm going, he'll ask me to grab milk or something for him but I got him back yesterday when I had him pick me up some bananas so I didn't have to go just for that.

Do you spend a lot of time in the store? Do you buy things you don't need? I am good about not doing that lately but sometimes seasonal items "fall" into the cart ;)

What about goals??? The end of the year is just weeks away...as is my 39th birthday but we won' talk about that ;)

How are you doing with your goals that you set for the year? Are you almost there? Cutting it close? Gave up months ago?

In July, I set out to drop the extra fluff & get back to my Weight Watchers goal. I'm 4 pounds away from that now & while I'm not sure I'll get there, I'm going to come damn close. I will at least have reclaimed my non-paying Lifetime status by then so that is good in my book! AND I should report (with the biggest cheesiest grin EVA) that I rocked my skinny jeans the other night. You know....the ones that fit PERFECT when Kevin & I started dating then got too big with contest prep then wouldn't go over my knees after the rebound. Yea, those. Rocked them again the other night & looked pretty damn good if I don't say so myself.

And once again, I'm in contact with a magazine about my transformation. This time I won't chicken out ;) More on that another time.

Sooooooo. Fill me in, how are you doing with your goals?

Great job on teh goals, lifetime membership AND skinny jeans! You are rocking it!

... I feel like i live in grocery stores half the time, but i love it. lol

My biggest goal was to step on stage, be proud of what I presented, do it in a healthy manner and not rebound. Unless I rebound over christmas, goals all completed! :)

Please don't chicken out. It would be incredible to see you in a magazine!

Looking forward to the magazine article!!! I live at the exact same Meijer store as you!!! I do my best to just shop my list, but I am with you on some of the seasonal stuff I stumble across. :) No real goals this year, but I am doing my best to be at the gym 4 times a week. A shoulder injury has kept me from strength training for several months (and it is impacting how many boxing classes I attend), but I am not letting it stop me. I am on the bike, the treadmill, the elliptical, taking classes and modifying the exercises to suit my current needs and I hit some very light weights just the other day. Wishing you the best as you turn 39 and begin 2011! I know you are going to keep on rockin, sista!!!
