They don't have... tea?

Friday, January 10, 2014

I went to the store yesterday for my weekly shopping and they were out of tea!! Ok... not exactly out of "all" teas, but they were out of my tea, so in my head, they were out of tea. I mean, honestly, how do you run out of Red Rose?

It has been so cold here. My body can't take it. Everyone keeps telling me it is because I am "too thin" but I don't think that is exactly it. When I lost weight, my blood pressure went back to "normal" which normal for me is usually 90 (something) / 60 (something) and that is why I am cold all of the time. When my blood pressure was "high" 120 (something) / 80 (something) I wasn't always cold. It makes sense?

I had an awesome workout week. On Wednesday I even did two classes. I am really loving the gym's new Tabata class, and am glad they are adding more, however, I am not a fan that they are replacing a few PC Fit classes with it. I was really hoping they would add more Tabata in addition to the PC Fit classes. Anyway though, I really do like the Tabata. It is super intense and not for beginners! Paul REALLY kills it.

Not much else to report right now

    I feel the same about my fave hot beverages. Yesterday I went to get some chai and the milk steamer was down. Only iced or frozen chai. As far as I was concerned, there was nothing available... I had a pear.

    Funny you should mention Red Rose. Of the tea bag teas, it's my fav, too.

We used to live in Boulder, CO, and for a long time they didn't have it, there. We used to buy it, here (NH), and send it to a tea-junky friend of ours in CO.

My sister-in-law collects the little ceramic knickknacks they put in the boxes, and we save those for her.

Red Rose became a connection point for us with friends and family.

Sound like you're doing well on your plan,

    I've become a 'my food' hoarder emoticon caused by just this situation!

No one store sells all my fav go-to foods, so when I finally make the trip, I buy 2 or even 3 of each item!


Fitness is my 2014 watch-word and focus emoticon

    I agree. Running out or your favorite tea just shouldn't happen.

    I can't believe people are telling you that you're cold because you're too thin. That's dumb. When I get cold I do jumping jacks until i'm nice and tasty again. My co-workers think I'm NUTZ!

Glad to hear you're enjoying the Tabata!

    It is never a good thing when they run out of tea. Ever.
