Total score at the grocery store this afternoon. I had to run to work to drop off some papers to upgrade my certification, and while I was there, I decided to run by the Kroger to pick up some Quorn products. Unfortunately, all of the Krogers closer to home have closed down, so the closest one is about 40 minutes away, close to work. It works out fine during the schoolyear, but over the summer, it’s pretty inconvenient. Anyway, as I was walking through the bakery, I found this:

Picture 150

The picture doesn’t do it justice, and I didn’t think to take a picture earlier. The bread is incredible. I don’t remember off the top of my head everything that’s in it, but my personal favorites were the flax seeds and the sunflower seeds. I used this bread to make an egg and tomato sandwich for dinner tonight. It was AMAZING!!! I got the idea from Leah’s post here. I just couldn’t bring myself to do strawberries with eggs, but I think that I’m going to have some strawberries tonight. I’ve got a container of them in the fridge that I need to use up, and I am definitely going to need an evening snack tonight.

I think I might have overdone it a bit today, but I feel good. I’ll be hungry in a little while, but I feel good right now. I decided I was going to up my workouts just a bit. Nate got all of the stuff for the EA Active for the wii. I was a skeptic, but he and I tried it together a few weeks ago, and I felt like I got much more of a workout than I expected. I decided tonight to find out exactly how much. There is a 30 day challenge on there, so I decided to start the “challenge” and see how much progress I get over the next month. Of course, I won’t be doing that alone- I can’t give up my running! But it would be a possible addition to the runs. So a little while after my run (200 calories- I cut it short today, knowing that I was going to do the Wii) I started the heart rate monitor up again to see exactly how many calories the wii torched. In just over 30 minutes, I burnt a whopping 336 calories, making my total burn for the day 536!! Woah! Since I’m somewhere around 1300 calories for the day, I know I’m going to need to eat something in a little while. I’m thinking an apple and some soy yogurt sounds pretty yummy. I’m in trouble… haha. Strawberries sound good… apple and soy yogurt sounds good… Pretty much everything sounds good right now, I guess.

Right now, I just feel pretty nasty. I need a shower!
