How to double your grocery bill + making progress

It’s Christmas week!! I can’t believe how fast it snuck up on me this year. I feel like I didn’t experience the season to the fullest, good thing there is still time to make up for it.

I have been feeling pretty good until yesterday. I felt off all day but still managed to do a little Christmas shopping with Mike. Well, he did most of the shopping while I sat on a bench at the mall. I didn’t mind at all, it was really nice to be out of the house, catching some fresh air.

Mike has been incredible the last few days, picking up the slack, doing stuff he probably hasn’t done in years like laundry and grocery shopping. He picked up everything on the list I sent him then managed to double our usual grocery bill. Ha! I’m really happy he found some new stuff to try like a ginger beer (which he is obsessed with) and different kinds of cheese.

Typical dude, beer, meat + cheese. I like it, especially when he placed this plate of deliciousness between us while watching Breakfast At Tiffany’s on Netflix. Would you send me hate mail if I told it was my first time watching it?

Pretty sure I am setting a new PR for sitting on the couch, watching movies and doing a whole lotta nothing. I actually look forward to it. Who am I?

Speaking of resting, my new Pro Compression socks came at the perfect time. I got these ones  and LOVE them in case you are wondering.

My doctor recommended I wear them to help reduce swelling in my leg. Yah, like I needed another reason. Mike said the night we got home from surgery my knee was 4x bigger. Sexy, I am not. Major bonus, besides hiding cankles they glow in the dark.

I made it to the gym for another 10 minute cycling session. Today I can go up to 15 minutes and after Christmas I am cleared to get back into the pool. Thankful is not enough for how I’m feeling right now.

Oh and apparently I am allergic to Bandaids. Who knew?

How are you spending Christmas?

We are driving home for the day and bringing the Lu back for a week!! I miss that kid so much I can not wait.

Things you currently obsessed with?

Netflix, Christmas, fresh fruit, counting down the minutes until I get these dang stitches out, printed yoga pants.

Are you allergic to anything? What?

Apparently only Bandaids. But theres only one way to find out the others. Mike on the other hand is allergic to cats, bees, mold, grass and doing the dishes. Or so he says.

  1. I refuse to take the husband to the grocery store with me, or send him alone. It gets dangerous, and my bank account cries.

  2. The husband and I are in town visiting our families, it’s kind of neat they live in the same town. We are here for two full weeks! I am currently obsessed with this weather. It’s been in the 50’s and raining, and now it’s still 50 but sunny. Not at all what winter is like here. I’m allergic to penicillin and some grass.

    I love those printed leggings you are wearing! Where are they from?!

  3. Which ginger beer? We LOVE Crabbie’s….super delicious! We are spending Christmas relaxing…sleeping in, making breakfast, watching movies. No stress on Christmas!

  4. I’m right behind you on the couch PR. I can’t remember the last time I sat and slept this much in one week. One more surgery to go on Friday and 5 weeks until I can be fully active again. I can do this. Thanks for your fun updates on how much it can suck to sit on your ass for days on ends HA! Merry Christmas to you, Mike and Bam.
