Open gym at CrossFit was a lot of fun this morning. I loved Helen. It was an awesome WOD. I already want to attempt it again to see if I can do it faster!
I love WODs that include running—mostly because it’s a skill that I’m confident in my abilities. I’m still trying to feel out almost everything else at CrossFit, but with running, I don’t need to think about it. I just go and do it. And I can usually keep up with the CrossFit superstars!
For Helen, I did the prescribed weight for women on Kettle Bells and used a band for the pull-ups. I finished in 12:21.
After CrossFit, I headed home for lunch, which was scrambled eggs with green bell pepper, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, nutritional yeast, a scoop of Greek yogurt, and some freshly ground pepper on top. Delish!
I finished off lunch with an Adora disk dipped in peanut butter.
Then, I headed out with coupons in hand to tackle our grocery shopping for the week.
After spending $130 at Whole Paycheck Foods last week, Mal and I were determined to rein it in with our grocery budget this week. Our plan of attack: divide and conquer. I headed to Stop & Shop to buy the majority of the items on our list while Mal hit up Whole Foods for the meat and bulk bins.
Mal and I try to buy organic as often as we can, but we don’t all of the time. There are some (non-organic) products that we just like, so we buy them and enjoy them. Much of the time, these items are a lot cheaper at Stop & Shop than Whole Foods. Stop & Shop also has a nice selection of more affordable organic products, so we shop there to save money. However, Stop & Shop doesn’t carry USDA-certified organic meat, so we spend an arm and leg on it at Whole Foods. It’s worth it though—it tastes so good!
Mal and I still managed to spend $100 on groceries this week, but I feel like we got more for our dollar. Hey, I’m just glad we didn’t spend $130 this time!
When I returned from grocery shopping, Mal was snacking on celery + peanut butter, so I helped myself to a bunch, but I never snapped a photo. Sorry!
