During work yesterday, I got an email from Bloomington/Normal’s version of Whole Foods – Naturally Yours – saying everything in their bulk bins was 25% off! Despite the fact that I just spent $12 on a bag of dried cherries there on Wednesday, I headed over to get my fill of nuts, oats, and dried fruit.
While I was there, I also checked out some of their beauty products. As you guys know, I’m a bit obsessed with getting rid of toxins, chemicals, and carcinogens from my life. Although I already use several products that are all-natural, the rest, like my shampoo, conditioner, and face wash, are loaded with toxic ingredients:
Uhhh yeah, Paige, just because it’s got a cute little leaf on the bottle and says words like “almond” and “shea butter” doesn’t mean it’s all natural.
So I picked up some newbies.
We’ll see how it goes!
Oh! Then I got yet another exciting email! Lou Schuler is at it again, and released his newest New Rules book – New Rules of Lifting for Life.
Yep, I went and picked it up from Barnes and Noble even though it cost me twice as much as it would to order off of Amazon. What can I say? I am my father’s daughter, and he passed down his impulsive purchasing skills to me I wanted it RIGHTNOW!
I’ve been a New Rules fan ever since the very first book came out. I read that one (which is actually Shane’s) before the blog, and then when NROL for Women came out, I bought and did that, and then when NROL for Abs came out, did the same. NROL4A is by far my favorite one. I love the workouts 100 x’s more than the others, and despite the title, it’s hardly a book for the abs.
Then I came home and wanted some dinner. Shane out of town at a friend’s last night, and when I got home, I knew I wanted something quick and easy. So after making myself a mango cake cocktail, I did just that.
Egg, cheese, and veggie scramble
Then I had a PMS-induced snack of half a dark chocolate cookie butter bar from TJ’s, an Oikos chocolate yogurt container, and about 10 chocolate covered pretzels, which I proceeded to dip into the yogurt, and went to bed at 8:20 where I caught up on Glee and passed out.
Talk about a wild Friday night! Party. Animal.
Have a lovely Saturday, loves! It’s another work day for me, but it shouldn’t be too bad
What do you typically get from the bulk bins?
I always, always, always get unsweetened dried cherries from Naturally Yours because they’re bomb. I also get most of my nuts from them, too. But that’s about it!
