lazy vs. rest day

yesterday i didn't do any exercise. i didn't get home until 8:30 because i went to the walmart supercentre. i love you walmart supercentre. you are so big and super. i bought: a new tweezer, some dove intense repairing conditioner, three new cheap sports bras (A cup annies can get away with cheap sports bras), a new big bowl for microwaving oatmeal, 4 new drinking glasses (mine have slowly been breaking and i only have two left), some eye make-up remover (i like the rimmel brand), some dairyland fat free vanilla yogurts, and a pomegranate. oh, and a fancy wrapped wine from the wine rack in the walmart. oh, AND i forgot one to mention one of the best things i got. i mean, maybe the best, i have to try it first. here it is:

jolly time healthy pop caramel apple flavour. it's only 120 calories for 1/2 the bag. my box came with 3 packets, not 12. there were two other yummy flavours, like mallow magic, but that one was 360 calories for 1/2 the bag. outrageous! sometimes the walmart supercentre stocks products like this that i would usually only expect to find in the united states. occasionally it has chex mix which is my snack crack. i didn't buy any snack crack... don't want to OD!

i also went to canadian tire which was the main purpose of my trip because i wanted to buy a little (maybe 2 feet) christmas tree for my apartment. but i wanted one with pre-strung lights that didn't look tacky or cheap and it just wasn't my day. there were some nice bigger ones, but i don't want to go overboard. i bought my mom a nice whisk and spatula for christmas. i also got her a membership to costco. she is going to love it. i am going to love it too because i'm going to beg her to take me there. please mum please!

so i got home late, too pooped to work out. and i should mention that i was suffering from bum pain. dammit! so i took a "rest day." it's funny to me to call days when i plan to work out and don't "rest days" instead of just "lazy" or "can't be bothered" days. but it all worked out. normally i "rest" on friday mornings, but today i had a 40 minute swim. today is also weigh-in day and i am down two pounds and barely back in my maintenance range. hooray! i knew my pants were fitting better. even when i am a mere two pounds heavier i can feel the difference in my thighs.

this weekend is going to be fun fun fun until my daddy takes the t-bird away. tonight after work i am going to my bf's parent's house for his dad's birthday dinner (hence the wine). hence: do you like that word? and then tonight a home movie night with friends. tomorrow the ago is free all day (art gallery of ontario) so it would be fun to stop there, and then my bf is having a "november is boring" party. and THEN, on sunday, we are sitting on his roof (third floor street apartment) to watch the toronto santa claus parade! could it get any better? yes it can - by drinking a peppermint latte :) oh, and THEN on monday... i am going shopping in BUFFALO with my bff - it's her birthday.

my question for readers is: what would you buy in the states!?!?! i expect at least 1,000 comments, ha!

I would go to Victoria Secret, Trader Joes and Whole Foods.

I SOOOOO wanted to go shopping in the states, too bad the dollar isn't working out that well for ya right now. I also would go to Trader Joe's, but they don't have that everywhere. I'd buy tons of everything there. (just wander around and buy what looked good) PLUS, I'd buy ezeckial bread, but you probably don't have to go to US for that, just out of the prairies. I'd also go to a Target because I can't remember who, but there was some designer doing a cheap clothing line there.

Your rest day sounds pretty busy to me. I'm with the others, the dollar's not so great these days so I'd stay home but if I were to go:
Cherry Coke Zero (LOVE THIS STUFF!!)
Fat-free cheddar and other cheeses
Kashi granola bars
Fun flavours of ff yogurt

Thanks for your comments on my blog today. I just needed to get it off my chest.

Ughhh.....Going to the states in crazy for me because I feel this intense need to buy everything that I can't find 30 minutes north in my own freaking country!!

I'd go to Trader Joes and buy EVERYTHING!!

I am crazy about Forever 21 if they have it in Buffalo. That store is my crack!

Yup, I've always been curious about Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Even going to any grocery or food chain I could spend hours (isn't that sad?) they have sooooo much more low cal options down there.

Bath & Body Works, LL Bean, Khols, J.C. Penny, Target, Ann Taylor too.
