LaZyHollie goes to Trader Joe's!

Yes, instead of SkinnyHollie, my name should be temporarily changed to LAZYHOLLIE! The past few days I have been SO LAZY! I guess that's what happens when you combine a mild case of the blues with zero degree temperatures and snow everywhere. Good thing is - the eating has been pretty good! Not perfect, but I am nearly there. After the shopping trip I made today, I should be 100% there tomorrow!

After not leaving the house since Wednesday, I actually ventured out today. Spring classes started today, then after class I went and got my nails done. THEN I drove to Nashville and went grocery shopping at Trader Joe's! Nothing gets me in "healthy grocery" mode like Trader Joe's. It is my favorite grocery store. Since we were out of EVERYTHING, I decided to stock up on good stuff. $168 later, I think I am good to go!

I was supposed to write out a menu yesterday for the week, but I couldn't do it! It was like I had writer's block... I couldn't think of anything that I really WANTED on the menu. I didn't feel like looking at recipes... hell, even the thought of COOKING seemed like a chore. So I didn't do it. But now that I actually have groceries I think I may be able to do it.

Another great thing happened this morning while I was getting my backpack ready for school. I found my food journal from back in April when I first started eating clean, taking supplements, and lost a lot of weight. I was perfectly on plan for MONTHS, and everything I ate is in this food journal. I am SO excited about finding it. Later on, I plan on reading through it for ideas on how I can DUPLICATE that same behavior so I can lose weight now like I did back then. I think I lost 20 lbs the first month? Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about!
