Healthy Food and #EqualCanada

It's seems to me that my weight just continues to go up and up and up. I know, I know, I need to stop eating garbage, cut my sugar intake, actually consume fruits and veggies, and you know, maybe get up from my computer and move this body!

First things first, I'm off to Wal-Mart to buy some better food! Quickly scan the flyer to see what fab sales are going on, and then check my coupons and hope i have some great savings coming to me!

*Note to self - you really need to find some method of coupon organization! cramming them in an envelope or sandwich bag just isn't cutting it!! *

I like to hit up Wal-Mart late at night or early in the morning..less people..less distraction..less people to elbow for that awesome deal! (lol, joking!!)

So back to why I'm at Wal-Mart. I have a doctors appointment, ugh a physical, in just over 2 weeks. She's going to tell me that my weight is out of control. It really is. 45 lbs weight gain for no good reason in 2 yrs just is NOT cool. It's horrible and embarrassing. So lord help me, I have 2 weeks (just to start!) to try and do SOMETHING about it!!

*1) What i WANT to buy(and lots of it!).....2) What I NEED to buy (booooo!) *

I tried really hard. I found healthy food (yay! leeks were a great price here and looked fab!) AND put it in my cart! I even passed up the icecream! Next I was on the hunt for the #EqualCanada in the new yellow cannister! It wasn't with the sugar/sugar substitutes section! I found it over in the pharmacy in the Diabetic section, which i honestly found a little weird, as I am not diabetic but yet I was looking to purchase it. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Seriously though, what a GREAT price (it's on Rollback baby!)

So after my trip around the store, here's what i bought:
* Don't judge me by my Alfredo sauce! *

On the way to the checkout I spotted the coolest thing. It's a smoothie-to-go blender!! This would be awesome for my weightloss quest! (but not today! sigh)

So, good food is now bought..time to move my body! Can i have a nap first? (joking!)

  1. Hey - you've got lots of healthy food in that cart! Good job!

    I use a Couponizer to organize my coupons and I absolutely love it!

  2. I'm on this quest with you. C will be 3 in May and I still have the 50lbs I put on when I was pregnant. Writing a food blog doesn't help :P

  3. I've never been in WalMart when it looks calm. Good luck with your weight loss journey.

  4. Looks like you got some awesome food! Ooooo smoothie to go looks cool!!

  5. That's a lot of coupons I too need to find a way to organize them better.

  6. Love coupons! Use them as much as I can. I try to eat healthy as well but it is hard sometimes. You have a great cart load there though and that smoothie to go blender looks great to me! Will work great with the Equal you picked up and the fruit

  7. They are currently renovating our Walmart to add a grocery section. Leeks and cucumbers at Walmart? Really? Hmmm...I hate shopping at Walmart, but fresh foods might make me succumb to going in there!

  8. I have a coupon binder, and it's almost the opposite problem - too much to carry around!!

    Good for you for making the right steps to a healthier you {and less nagging from the doc}, PLEASE sent motivation my way woman, I'm with ya on this too!!
