Reintro Day 7

Well - I think I am on the mend. I slept fairly well last night, though I am guessing that from being all stuffed up that I was probably snoring - Mr. P. moved to the guest room some time during the night. Oops. Things should be back to normal in a couple of days.

My eyes are still a watery mess, but I'm not 100% stuffed up. I managed to get myself dressed and run to Super Target to do some grocery shopping. I rarely go there to shop, but there was no way I was going to venture to BJs and Aldi and Publix. Not quite up to that task just yet. It took way longer than it should have to get what I got, BUT - I ran into my brother's family there so I got to see my little sunshine birthday girl. 

I scored some great deals too - they had grass-fed ground beef marked down $3 off - and it was already on sale. So I got $7.49/lb for $3.49/lb. I got a roast that was also $3 off, a whole chicken for $3 off and a couple of packs of chicken tenders $2 off each. They also had a mobile coupon for $5/$25 in meat/seafood. Cha-ching! They also had the organic eggs marked down to $2/dozen (regularly $4.89) - I got 3 dozen and they were an additional 5% off with Cartwheel. Pretty much everything I picked up ended up having a Cartwheel deal and in the end I got 5% off all of it with my Target RedCard debit card. 

Not that I'm keeping track (ha ha) but -17 pounds this morning - 37 days. Not bad for not dieting. 

It's 2:30pm as I write this post and the only thing I have had to eat today is half a leftover white grape juice pop and a Larabar.

I tossed a bunch of chicken in the crock this morning - with chicken stock, carrots and some leftover chopped onion. The house smelled divine when I came in from Target...and that's with a stuffy nose! 

I also found a compliant chicken stock at Target! Pretty sure it was my reward for getting my arse out of the house. 

I'm going to make some skillet potatoes for lunch and then I'll get to work on packing lunches for the week. I portioned out black olives for Mr. P. yesterday - and I got him a jar of compliant sauerkraut today (go figure the jar I bought just before we started all of this has white wine in it. Really?!) I wonder if he's tired of hot dogs and sauerkraut with olives and fruit every day? Yesterday I noticed his weight loss. He put on a t-shirt that was an XL and it fit. He typically goes for the XXL because so many are "slim fit" these days.

Mr. P. has been working all weekend and been all over town to do it. Luckily I caught him before he was in Dr. Phillips so I could get him to run into Whole Foods.  We are about out of Coconut Aminos. Well...I guess I wasn't specific enough when I said it was in the condiment section, has a palm tree on the label and a gold wrapper over the cap. He came home with the same bottle only with a red wrapper and while it does say Coconut Aminos, it also says Teriyaki Sauce. At least it seems to be compliant.  I guess I will order the huge jug on Amazon. It's the only way it's affordable. Seriously - this is like the one product that I can get cheaper at a local health food store. Except that we don't really have one nearby. We used to have a Chamberlains, but it went away. I did hear that they are moving back though. Although no idea where - it might not be convenient either. 

Well - I forgot to take a picture of dinner. Sorry! Since Mr. P. bought teriyaki sauce, I used some of my awesome deal chicken tenders and half a can of pineapple chunks to make a teriyaki chicken dish - served it over zoodles. Huge plus - ONE PAN. Dirtied 2 plates, 2 forks, 1 knife, a spatula and a pan. WOO HOO!
