Shopping Saturday

Yesterday I got a ton done!  I made a list and got everything but one thing finished off of it.  For some reason, I am way more productive that way.

I had an eye appointment, went to Hobby Lobby, walked to the library and back (thus knocking off two things at once), went to Target, Walgreen's, and picked up lunch for Kevin.

Later on, right after I had eaten supper, Kevin's parents called and invited us to dinner.  I went and had a drink since I was still full.  This place has the best Strawberry Margarita's.  They are so sweet, I don't even taste the alcohol.

We went back to his parent's house for dessert where his dad insisted that I try this frozen slushy drink.  It was really good!  By then, I was starting to feel the alcohol a bit since I basically never drink.

One pouch fits right into a glass.  How convenient!

I had plans today too.  My mom and I had some running around to do.  We had bought some flowers at Hobby Lobby and they were on sale now, so we got a price adjustment.  Then we shopped for 4 hours for things for our trip.  We both found shoes, and my mom found a dress and a couple of shirts.

My mom found some shoes she just loved.  They were purple, like her dress, but just a bit too high.

She went with some cute, strappy, black ones.

I started reading The Hunger Fix by Pam Peeke.  It's a three stage detox and recovery plan for overeating and food addiction.  I've read the first chapter and was surprised that the forward is written by Tara Costa from the Biggest Loser.  I am interested to see what she has to say.  I'm sure it will come down to clean eating since all the additives and sugars in food keeps us addicted to them.  I'm hoping to get some coping techniques on how to manage my food addiction better.  I'll give my thoughts once I've actually read it.

Tomorrow is my last fun run until my marathon training officially starts.

Happy Saturday!

  Have you ever struggled with food addiction?
