Holy Wind!

The gusts of  74mph wind woke me up this morning thinking the roof is going to blow off the house!.. well it kind of did. As I was looking out the window.. I saw a huge piece of flashing fly into the neighbors lawn. OH NO! i thought: JB just fixed another piece of flashing, hoping it wasn’t the same piece he fixed.. or better yet hoping it wasn’t ours. Well it was ours and it was right next to the same piece he fixed. Oh the luck we have with this house.
Headed to the gym- because there was NO WAY i was going to run outside! It was packed, but luckily got on a treadmill right away. Did 5 miles on the dreadmill, averaged 8:50-ish pace. Then back home to do core work.
Tomorrow… back to work! NOOOOO.. Sunday blues on a Saturday night stinks. Vacation is officially over! We had a beautiful week so I can’t complain.

OK so yesterday I mentioned the smoothie I wanted to try.. so I did. Went to the Nutrition Source to pick up some dates. Found some fresh dates in the refrigerated section so gave them a whirl.

Spinana Smoothie
I made a little revision to the recipe: so here is MINE- Blend all together:

  • 10 ice cubes
  • 2 fresh dates
  • 1 peeled clementine
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 big handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 1 t. flax seed
  • 1- 6 oz. container of plain green yogurt

Went and did groceries today too at Stop&Shop.. I wanted to try their new scan as you go thing.. a little skeptical about it, but we gave it a whirl. You scan your item, put it in your bag, then your done. For produce items, you go to a scale, enter your item and print a label. Then @ checkout you give them the scanner, your card, pay and that’s it! It was super easy to use and fun too. It pulls up items you always buy and gives you  coupons available, and also it shows your total at the top so you don’t go overboard. Very very cool, and quicker check out too! Def. will be doing this again!

As for now- Relaxing, watching T.V, registering for some races… then bed early for work @3am.. *Siiiigh*

green tip. Storm Window Kits: It can be expensive to have storm windows installed throughout your house, but there is a less-expensive way to weatherproof home windows. Storm window kits consist of plastic film or sheets to cover the window. Attaching the plastic is done with tape or tacks. Prices range from about $3 to $10 per window.
