OH Happy Day!


I found them!! I swear people, it was no easy task either. I stood in the bread isle for a good 15 minutes thinking..."ok, here is the arnold's bread, its gotta be here somewhere"...and..."ok, not there. Well, over here are the arnold's buns. Nope." Finally I found them stuffed on the bottom shelf with all of the english muffins. They didnt even have a price! My persistence paid off though. I wonder how long they have actually kept these things hidden from me! Oh you are good Wal-Mart, but this time I came out the victor!

I also found these little babies that I got way too excited about and quickly threw into my cart next to my thins:


Italian Herb Flat-Out Wraps.

I had only ever seen just the plain ones, and those are awesome, so I knew that these would have to be good! It was such a toss up between using the new flat outs or the new sandwich thins for lunch. But those Flat-Outs smelled so damn good, I just had to try those out first. So I made up a wrap:


Turkey Wrap, HUGE-O Pickle, and a few carrots.



  • Italian Herb Flat-Out
  • Greek Style Hummus
  • Deli Turkey
  • Salsa
  • Spinach
  • Spicy Mustard

Oh my gosh these Flat-Outs were 10 times better than the plain ones. They had such a good flavor, and paired with the garlic-y hummus....oh it was heaven! haha. Also, I found those pickles during my shopping trip as well and decided that I had try those. They were labeled "Spicy Pickles" and they were jarred with red peppers and onions (i think). I had never seen anything like it and they were sooo good too! Has anyone ever seen and/or tried these?!

For dinner last night I tried out the Sandwich Thins and made up a Veggie Burger. This time I did as Katie suggested and thawed it out for a few seconds in the microwave before putting it on the Georgie, and this worked perfect! Thanks Katie, you are amazing, as always!




  • Morning Star Farms Mushroom Lovers Veggie Burger
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Spinach
  • Tomato Slice
  • (Another Pickle on the Side)

I got in a pretty good workout today too to go along with my good food shopping trip. My workout included:

  • 35 minutes on the eliptical: 300 cals. burned
  • 20 minutes on the other thing: 200 cals. burned

After I was finished with this I was at the water fountain filling up my water bottle and just happened to look up at the schedule of classes that my gym was offering. I scanned over the list for Thursday and noticed that they were offering a Yoga class at 1245. I looked at the clock, it was 1240! I thought this would be a perfect way to stretch and cool down after a workout so I hurried over to the yoga studio for what I thought would be a yoga class. When I found the room the door was already closed. I opened it as quietly as I could, and walked into a dark room with about 3 other people and the instructor. Everyone else already had all of their things and they were just sort of sitting there talking to the instuctor, so I just assumed the class had not started yet. I noticed that everyone had two blocks, so I asked if I need two or if I could just use one. That is when the instructor told me that it was up to me because this was a "freestyle" class where we did whatever yoga moves we wanted for an hour and if we needed help we could ask her. WHAT?! I mean I have done Yoga for years, but I still like to have guided instruction! I felt like I couldnt really leave so I stayed around and did what I remembered of some flows and I actually surprised myself with what I could do! I also threw in a couple back bends and leg balances! So in the end, I was glad that I stayed even though I was WAY uncomfortable. haha.

After lunch I got in workout #2. Nothing too big, it was just so pretty that I could not resist a walk/jog on one of my favorite jogging trails. I seriously had the biggest smile on my face all day because it was so gorgeous outside and EVERYONE was outside taking advantage. I even drove with my sunroof down! It got up into the high 60s and there was not a cloud in the sky! I ended up walking/jogging twice around "the loop" which I think is about two miles (so a total of 4 miles).

Todays agenda is a pretty busy one:

  • Subbing for 3rd grade
  • Working at the mall
  • Hopefully squeezing in a workout
  • Tanning
  • Rollerskating Par-Tay for my friend's birthday!

Hope everyone is having a lovely start to their weekend. What is everyone's plans? Anyone on Spring Break yet?! Lots of Love <3 Ems.

RunningLaur said...

When you said Arnold bread the other day I didn't recognize it (and I love carbs), but that's the same logo as Orowheat. Maybe they're related?
Orowheat sponsored RNRAZ and gave out free bread!

Enjoy the weekend!

I am glad you found them!
Stock up, they freeze well, and then I just deforst them in the microwave (~20 seconds on 20% power) and throw them in the toaster.
Great ideas about the veggie burgers! I have been wanting to try them on George. And the thins are the perfect bun size.
The Italian Flat outs are great!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
