Do Not Let Yourself Get This Hungry

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 23, 2009

Hey guys!

Wow…what a WEIRD day it has been!? Is anyone else having a Monday that feels like you are in a time warp? I sure am. lol. I’m trying to just roll with it though!

So much to my horror when I went to make a green monster this morning, I was out of Almond Breeze and Soy milk! *gasp*- My first morning in ages without a green monster! I admit I was a bit sad. Ok, a lot sad. I’m not sure how we let our kitchen go so grocery-less this weekend, but it just happened! I meant to hit up the grocery store yesterday but I was too busy with the Glo Bakery website.

So this morning the only things I could eat were 2 apples- that was ALL we had in the kitchen, except for some random non breakfast things. I ate my two apples and then hit the treadmill for a workout.


The Workout:


  • Duration: 47 mins.
  • Walking @ speed: 4.0 mph, incline 5-9%
  • Max heart rate: 154 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 140 bpm
  • Feel the burn: 358 kcals

I watched TV and read my Runner’s World– the time went by fairly quick. Today I decreased the incline and increased the speed for a mix-up.

I admit I am getting bored of these walking workouts! I have such a desire to run, but I know it is too soon. I have been thinking of trying something totally different- such as a spinning class or something, but after looking at the prices I just can’t afford it right now. So the treadmill will have to do until it gets warmer outside!

Does anyone have any fun treadmill workouts to share?

After my workout I had a quick shower and knew that I had to get into town to get my groceries- FAST! My fuel was running out quickly and by this time it was 1:30pm- and still no lunch in sight! I had a couple handfuls of raw almonds to tie me over (or so I thought).

My grocery trip ended up taking me about 2 hours there and back!!! I had to go to two different places- the grocery store and Bulk Barn to get baking supplies. We also live 15 mins. out of town so that adds on an extra 25-30 mins to the trip.


Store #1: Groceries:


I love that our grocery store is bagless! They don’t carry plastic bags at all so you have to bring your own reusable bags or buy theirs. It took some time to get used to this (and many forgotten bags in the car!!) but now I love it. I feel good knowing that I am not contributing to the waste any more than I need to.

Shown below- 4 bags- all of them were FREE!

Left to right: Neil Brother’s Reusable Bag, 2 Yellow Tail bags (free from the home show!) and another reusable bag from my Brother in Law.

More produce…


And more produce…

Today I bought all of my fruit based around what was on sale. For example, the pears were 99 cents a lb. and the Naval oranges were 79 cents a pound, so I stocked up!


I also have stopped buying organic for certain things since we are saving money. I didn’t buy organic pears, peppers, or tomatoes, which is a big thing for me because I hate buying non-organic for the Dirty Dozen!


So back to my hunger. By the time I got home (3:15pm) I was hungrier than any person should let themselves get! It was an awful feeling! lol. I threw tomatoes, spinach, and a veggie burger on the skillet for 5 mins. and then had avocado and hummus with it. I also had an orange and several handfuls of Spelt cereal. I couldn’t get the food in my belly fast enough! haha. My brain still hasn’t clued in that I ate, so I am going to have a tea and wait 10 mins. If I am still hungry I will go get something else. I have a feeling it is just slow today. ;)

A reno picture from yesterday- Eric is sanding down the wood in the family room. We are going to stain the wood a deep walnut color. It should look awesome when it is done!


It is soooo dusty in the house! I can’t keep up with all of the cleaning. It drives me nuts! I also have to workout in a ‘dusty feeling’ room. I opened the back sliding door, but it still has a heavy dusty smell! yuk!


Well, I have tons left to do today- I feel like the grocery trip ate up most of my afternoon. I am going to work straight til about 8pm tonight so that should put me back on track.

This afternoon’s question: What would you rather- a 1 hour massage or a manicure + pedicure?

That’s a tough one…right now I would say a mani + pedi because my feet are raggedy after this winter!

See you tonight for Part 2 of my bakery purchases!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

I am going grocery shopping tonight and I forgot my snack to bring to work on the counter at home so looking at those pictures made me want to eat my monitor!

I would rather a one hour massage!


Bec March 23, 2009 at 5:03 pm

love the reno updates! a one hour massage would be my choice for sure :)


Leah @ Simply Fabulous March 23, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Definitely a mani and pedi!! No contest!!!
Your nails can last for 1-2 weeks! A massage is only an hour and then i’d be stressed again hahah


Tyler (Raspberry Runner) March 23, 2009 at 5:23 pm

love the reusable bags!!

i would go for the mani/pedi!! if fact, i might paint my own nails this afternoon…can’t afford to get them done :( but i would pick a hair cut over both those choices anyday!!! i love getting my hair washed at the salon, and my hair stylist is so fun to talk to :).


VeggieGirl March 23, 2009 at 5:25 pm

Love your bags!!



Jess :) March 23, 2009 at 5:28 pm

Hmm, I’d say a massage AND a mani pedi. Hehe, if I had to choose, I love a good massage :) Oh what great buys!
<3 jess :)


Kristi March 23, 2009 at 5:45 pm

How about a massage and just a pedi? Does that count? haha


Sarah March 23, 2009 at 6:03 pm

MASSAGE! I have a weird thing about getting my feet touched.


Eat, Live, Love, Dream March 23, 2009 at 6:23 pm

I would so go for the massage! A girl can dream right?! My neck is sore from all this computer blogging! hah! Yummy lunch! I know what you mean about waiting too long to eat. nothing can get the food in fast enough!


Gillian March 23, 2009 at 7:21 pm

Definitely the massage! You can give yourself a manicure or pedicure but a massage is more difficult..

Are you still looking to book exchange/swap? I just posted some great food lit on my blog that I’m looking to clear out! Let me know if you would be interested in any of them!


Michelle Hisae March 23, 2009 at 7:32 pm

Wow that IS a long time without eating! I get soooo cranky when I’m hungry.

I would definitely take the mani/pedi. With all the exercise I do, my nails can get left in the dust! :) Plus, I have a boyfriend for massages. ;)


Kate B March 23, 2009 at 7:33 pm

I love that you live in Ontario like me, whenever I see your groceries I KNOW I can go out and find the same things you are buying! There are lots of foods I see on blogs of people from the States and I want all the cool brands they have….BUT I love seeing the food I buy on your website :)


Kris March 23, 2009 at 8:32 pm

Hmmm…..How about a half hour massage and a pedicure? lol…If you don’t ask, you don’t get ;) Of course, my massage therapist is not the most relaxing person to destress with as you know!

PS- Tip for the future….Don’t ever grocery shop while hungry and pregnant! ;)


Lindsay March 23, 2009 at 9:20 pm

I would go for the mani pedi because just as someone else said I am usually always stressed within 10 minutes of my massage being over. But my pretty hands and feet last for weeks!


Jessica March 24, 2009 at 2:12 am

All those groceries look so good!!!
Oh and check out tina’s blog from carrotsncake under workouts…she has lots of walking & running treadmill workouts there!


fun mum March 24, 2009 at 11:11 am

Depending on the day I would go for a mani and pedi today but yesterday I would have gone for the massage. Thoes photos made me realise how hungry I am and like you I need to get out to the grocery store. I did want to let you know however that I got some realy cheap grocery bags from and these look great and fold up into my handbag which is really useful, they are factory seconds so no where near the cost of the normal resuable bags. Good luck with the dust!!


katecooks March 24, 2009 at 12:47 pm

i hate when i get so hungry that my brain can’t catch up with my belly quick enough!!!! good job pausing :)
