Grocery Adventures


Earlier than I speak groceries, let me speak steps.

This week is ending my very first StepBet and I’m so completely happy that I did it! My plan was to get in a Yoga class this week as nicely and I did that. I’m feeling actually good about determining easy methods to get extra steps in and it has definitely turn into a extra necessary a part of my day by day plan than it was earlier than. When I’ve challenged myself prior to now to Stroll one hundred Miles in a Month, that appeared to be harder as a result of I used to be giving myself the entire month to finish the problem and I might find yourself procrastinating, then having to stroll 5 or 6 miles a number of days in a row to finish it. That’s simply dumb.

With the StepBet, you have got a every day aim that you should meet, and since I work higher with brief time period objectives anyhow, this has been the right means for me to ensure I’m staying lively each day. I really like this!

I signed up for my second StepBet yesterday! Your steps are based mostly in your general exercise together with your tracker. Since I’ve been strolling extra, my step objective has elevated a bit. This will solely be a great factor, proper?


We have now a HUGE new grocery retailer that simply opened down the road. Actually down the road. Perhaps 2 miles? They’ve this similar retailer downtown in Kansas Metropolis and I’ve solely been in there a couple of occasions, however I knew if it was going to be something just like the one downtown, I used to be going to like it! They opened this week!

I made a decision to get in a number of steps within the AC and went grocery buying with a pal. We discovered all types of enjoyable issues and the shop is basically fairly. They’ve a pleasant huge salad bar, plenty of sandwich choices, Sushi store, Bakery, Starbucks, Gelato Store, and a number of other locations to take a seat in and out Additionally they have tons and plenty of pre-made meals to take residence and warmth up. They even have a number of “meals for 2” with all the components proper within the bag!
