I learned something today, we’ll get to that later.
I woke up this Sunday morning alive and well. My husband and I got out of bed, made some coffee and tea, I cooked breakfast, then watched some Discovery Channel until we left for the gym. ‘Twas a great day to train! Hardly anyone was at the gym this morning, which left us so much room for activities!
Despite my possibly torn [right] rotator cuff, I trained bi’s and tri’s. Curls and pulls are really the only upper body exercises I can do without feeling immense pain. It is really discouraging. I’m over here trying to cut and build for a competition next summer and I can’t even train the muscle groups that need the most attention. At least my legs are really shaping up!
Went to lunch afterwards, came home to finish work on our porch, then I got ready to go visit my dad at the special care facility he’s in. He needed his nails done so I got together some of my fancy beauty tools, then I realized something: a full bottle of Biosilk cannot withstand heat coming up from the vent at the base of the bathroom sink cabinet. The shit literally got on everything! My new La’Reve straightener, my hair dryer, all my products, nail polish basket, the floor, it was AWFUL!! First world problems but still!! It was like cleaning up lube off of everything. There went $20…fuckin A.
Soooo…I went to go see my dad, had a pep talk with him now that he’s coherent. He looks to get to come home in 4 weeks, which is great! I just hope he realizes that his heart cannot take anymore close calls. If you are wondering what I’m talking about, read my recent post.
Coincidentally, Whole Foods is just 5 minutes away from his facility so I wanted to go see what all the fuss is about. I have never been to a Whole Foods store! Shocking, right? It was neat! Pretty flowers, fresh as hell produce, awesome seafood deli, and a shit-ton of Kombucha. I did a brief walk-through before grabbing a cart; why not grab a few things?! I picked out a few peaches, a bunch of bananas, fresh Salmon patty, lettuce, dressing, and some pre-seasoned chicken breasts. I was like, “Okayyy!! I can say I shopped at Whole Foods, I broke out of my shell, was the least hipster person there, it was nice!” Then it was time to pay. I bit the bullet. Whole Foods is like Sprouts on steroids; and not the good kind.
Basically, I got home and prepared a $20 salad for dinner. Although it tasted good, my first trip to Whole Foods would incidentally be my last. I can’t in all good conscience spend that much on 2 days worth of food when I can stretch that dollar to two weeks worth of meals. Just a little too boujie for me. The only thing NOT boujie about this meal was my Lambrusco. And that is what I learned today.
