Grocery Shopping

Friday, January 15, 2010

Just got back from the grocery store, and I spent a lot of time looking at labels! Filled my cart with both fresh and frozen vegetables, Go-Lean cereal, and Healthy Choice soups, as well as 1% milk and low-fat cottage cheese, among other things. Passed up the freshly made French bread that really smelled good! Oh, well.
Did okay until I got to the pharmacy. Just had to pick up a small box of Anna's Almond Cinnamon cookies. One serving is 5 cookies and 140 calories, so I'm going to make sure I really want them before digging in. And I'm sure they'll taste even better with a little peanut butter on them, which I haven't had in two weeks.
I'm in Stage 2 now, and I didn't finish some of the items in stage one that I've been working on. Haven't figured out yet if they (visual collage, etc) are still available somewhere, so maybe I'll just have to do them without getting any extra points.

    Good job Louise! And having a few sweets on hand like those cookies isn't a bad thing by any means! And you can still do your visual collage. You don't have to do it on here, you can just do it with poster board and cut up magazines or whatever. It's up to you as to how you want to do it! Think of the goals you have, the things you stand for, things you want to be able to do and go from there!

    Keep up the great work!!

    Reading labels at the grocery store was a new experience for me. It can be a real eye-opener, can't it.
