    It is the closest grocery store to my house. I spend way less money when I use them as a grocery store, I just need to be flexible about what I want. If I need specific things (for a company recipe or something like that) I go to a bigger store, but always end up spending way more than I planned to, so I generally prefer TJ's.

    Well, Down Days make for short posts, that's for sure!

    I was VERY grumpy when I got back from the gym. The rec center we usually go to is having the basketball court refinished, and the smell always gives me a headache, so we went to a different one last night. The machines were a bit different, but that wasn't the cause of my mood. The walls were COVERED in mirrors. Everywhere I looked, I saw me, in my workout clothes, hair all straggly. NOT motivational. I felt UGLY and FAT by the time I left. Honey told me not to be ridiculous, but I guess I remain ridiculous. This may call for a new haircut and some snazzy workout clothes if I ever have to go to that gym again.

    Men don't get that what we see in the mirror can make or break a mood.

    Glad you're back, Sabine! Eventually, you'll enjoy the mirrors. I used to hate them too, but now I find myself checking myself out in the mirrors at the gym.

    Sewing like a maniac, had a break to get a burger(bunless) with Honey, now I'm back at it. Waiting for the
    Intense Custard to cool so I can have a luxurious dessert.

    I can so relate to HATING mirrors! Wreck a good mood in a second - just as bad as clothes shopping (actually clothes shopping is worse now that I think of it!) Pretty cool that Honey didn't think you have anything to worry about though!

    I have an honest-to-gosh pathological fear of mirrors - had it my whole life. The only mirror I have is in the bathroom. (This is probably TMI!)

    I'm going to be out all day Saturday(my Up Day) and in a situation where it will be too easy for me to have BAD food. (I'm talking oreos, corny dogs, and chips--not just a slice of bread.) So I am prepping myself.

    I know I will feel deprived tomorrow if I don't have a treat, so today I am making:

    Mushroom quiche
    Heroin hot wings
    homemade ranch dressing
    valentino brownie cakes
    low-carb crepes to have with cream and strawberries

    Already made: onion custard baked in bacon 'crusts'.




    Also, it is raining. I hope we get a good drenching, but then it STOPS, so Honey can go riding. The ground should soak it up like a sponge, but even a very dry, very deep sponge has limits. It can resume on Monday.

    A hard lesson indeed: the things you see in others, are often the things you have struggles with yourself.

    So...I am stopping right now, and doing my relaxation thing.

    Really.
