^True. $97 on groceries this time =\ I think prices overall have gone up recently, but I did get two packs of nitrate/nitrite free bacon & 18 eggs instead of the usual dozen. Not sure what I'm going to do with my spaghetti squash this time. Also I got a coupon for my almond milk so I'll buy in bulk next time, maybe.
Next week I'll be in Santa Barbara M-F (travelling Monday, which means prolly quick breakfast sandwiches at Dunkin Donuts). My free time this week (at work) will be spent finding places that look like they have good menus, within a 2 mile radius of my hotel. Continental breakfast at the hotel means rubbery eggs and bacon, most likely. Maybe if there's a grocery store close by, I'll pick up some cottage cheese or greek yogurt, if my room has a mini fridge. Or I'll practice IF in the evening and just focus on breakfast/lunch. I wonder if the building has a cafeteria or anything, I'll have to ask my manager.
Boyfriend & I went swimming during my "lunch" break. It felt good to move. My muscles definitely swell when I work out, which I think is why I always feel better about my body at the gym. I really would like to get more lean though, I'm not a fan of this tummy fat. Time to hydrate & eat some tuna, I've got a chlorine-headache.
On a completely non-health related note, very annoyed about home situation at present. My family hired a family friend (a little younger than me, little sister of a high school friend of mine/bf's) to house-sit while they are on vacation this week, which entails piling up the mail/newspapers inside, feeding the cats, running the pool pump/making sure the water doesn't get too low. I stopped by last night and the dining room table was covered in newspapers. She hadn't brought in the mail. My bedroom light was on, which I assume means she's staying in there. Now I don't live at my parents' house right now, but my bed (which I bought with my own money) is still there, and I've let my family know that *they* are welcome to use it until it has somewhere to go (as in, I get my own real place). I didn't know that it was going to become the guest bed/room because my dad won't clear off the real guest bed that has his computer junk all over it. I just wish they'd asked, because I would've said no. Also if they'd asked to use my rug after tearing up the carpets (not a big deal, but still, asking would've been appreciated). Oh yeah, the house sitter also had her hobo (not even kidding about this) boyfriend over.
