10 Miler + Grocery Haul

I ran 10 miles on Saturday morning! The long run has always been my favorite. Last year I missed it a lot, but now that I’m running long again I realized just how good it is for my mood. It makes me feel accomplished, less stressed out, less anxious, mentally tough and physically fit. I love running 🙂 I should just get that tattoo’d on my forehead.

Here’s my weekend recap vlog with a Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s haul in the middle:

Usually I just grocery shop at Publix but sometimes I gotta break up the monotony and shop elsewhere. I always forget just how expensive Whole Foods is until I go back. I should have went to Trader Joe’s first because I saw a few things I got at Whole Foods at TJ’s for a fraction of the price!

I got quite a few new-to-me things during this grocery trip so we’ll see how my meals this week go. It’s always such a gamble to try new things when you are a picky eater! 😀

Do you always go to the same grocery store or do you switch things up?

    I compared Safeway, Kroger, & whole foods & whole foods was surprisingly not that much more expensive! Ordering online also saves me a ton of money bc I keep to the list!

      Really?! A few things I bought at Whole Foods were a fraction of the cost at Trader Joe’s (fresh pre-cut fruit, hard boiled eggs, meats) but TJ’s pricing is always really good. I bet the pricing of Whole Foods compared to Publix would be fairly similar if I compared organic vs. organic. TJ’s just has great pricing haha!

    Congrats on getting back up to the double digits! Not running is hard when you have an injury. It’s like being told you can do therapy or take your meds.

    I’m new to your blog and vlogs and I must say, you come off like the happiest, most optimistic person ever! It’s contagious

      Hi Anya, that’s a good comparison and thanks for dropping in and saying hi! I have not always been the happiest or most optimistic person, but most days I do try to remind myself I have very little to complain about in life!
