Grocery Trip and Gum Obsession

So it's now officially summer, and it sure feels like it! It is HOT, and I love it.

 My little brother came over and floated with me for a little while today! It was good to see him, since I don't get to very often. He's still a brat, but he's not as bad as he used to be. ;)

So I went to the grocery today to pick up a "few" things....and here's what I ended up with:

Guess you can never have enough meat and produce!
Oh, and look what I found!!!

Okay, so I have this thing that I have to chew fruity gum when I'm working out. It can't be peppermint or spearmint-it HAS to be fruity. I think it makes me "EXTRA" strong(haha, get it?), kind of like my tall socks. ;) I know, I'm a dork.

I'm obsessed with Extra's Dessert Delights gum. My husband actually stuffed my stocking full of all different flavors at Christmas! Then I saw a while back that they had come out with a new flavor-Sherbet(or "Sherbert" as I have called it all my life and am made fun of for excessively by my husband). I hadn't seen it at any stores until today, and I was SO excited!  I also just had to try the rootbeer float flavor, too! this week I've just been "wingin' it" at the gym, and it's been kind of fun! Did some short CrossFit-ish style workouts so far. I will admit that I do feel a little lost without my notebook. The first day I walked into the gym without it, I kind of felt naked. It's strange not having something to carry around with me or have to write something down between every set!

Well, the good thing is my back and hip feel pretty good. I did some barbell squats yesterday, and they felt great! I have lost some strength, but I'll know I'll get it back soon. I'm just thankful I can do them! Right now I'm working on building up my glute strength by doing gluteus medius and abductor exercises, as well as lots of glute bridges. Can't wait to get this booty to grow. :)


  1. I don't chew gum, but I'm having the hardest time giving up pop. I always reach for it when that mid afternoon slump around 2 or 3pm hits.
    Any ideas what I could choose instead? I drink water & tea too, but I feel dehydrated alot of times. What is your favorite beverage?

    1. I would just have a cup of coffee when that afternoon slump comes around. Sweeten with a Stevia blend sweetener and some almond milk! Much better than pop, as far as health. My favorite thing to drink is ice water!! I love water! So I have no good suggestions for that one. I don't think anything can take the place of water!
