Food Hoarder

I am stuck at home, yet again, as I deal with my most recent dental issues. Long story short, I had two root canals started and now my mouth is on fire. Actually, it feels more like a radiating pain with an occasional shock here and there. The dentist only started the root canals. He will finish them in about a week. They told me that my next appointment will last about 4 hours as they have to finish the root canals and make impressions for two crowns. Great.
Additionally, I have to get my lower wisdom teeth pulled in the very near future. Aye-yai-yai!

So, since I am stuck at home I thought that now would be a good time to update the blog. I have to show you a couple of things. I'll start with the food I hoard followed by my most recent "pretty purchases."

Since the end of January, I have been watching what I eat. I am trying to keep my calories, carbs, proteins, and fats in balance with the goal of weight loss in mind. In doing so, I have lost almost 11 pounds and counting (I should also mention that Dale has lost over 20 pounds through diet and exercise). I have been eating more fresh fruits and veggies, bison meat, and plenty of portabella mushrooms. I have also become obsessed with 3 food items: Vita Tops, Fage yogurt, and Weight Watchers desserts.

*tip for those that love the Vita Tops: I have located the hard-to-find Tops at both Sprouts and Target!

These are the boxes of the Weight Watchers desserts and the Vita Tops that I have purchased this week (I take them out of their box and put them in baggies to save freezer space):
When I saw all of these lined up in a row, waiting to be placed in the recycling bin, It became clear that I had a problem. I bought all of these items before I was even close to running out of what I already had.

Check out what I have in the freezer:
I have 3 plastic freezer bags full of vitatops. Another couple of freezer bags contain weight watchers desserts. As you can see, I also have a bunch of individual weight watchers ice cream bags (and Julie's organic sorbet bars) all over the freezer.

Let's check the refrigerator for a look at my yogurt collection:
I probably have somewhere around 15-20 containers of yogurt. Dale and I typically eat 1-2 yogurts a day. Now that my mouth is in pain, and it hurts even more to chew, I eat 2-3 a day. I absolutely love this stuff, and it's good for you! The other day, I bought all they had of the cherry and honey flavors at both Target and Sprouts.

I guess you can call me a food hoarder. I really need to stop before I run out of room in the freezer. If you want to try a weight watchers strawberry shortcake, or one of their brownies, or maybe a banana nut Vita Top, come see me.

Ok, on to my recent pretty purchases!

These Items were all purchased at Tuesday Morning (and none of them broke the bank):
Funky bird house

Chunky-Funky bracelets

Clunky thermometer

That's all for now. I'm sleeeeeeeeeepy.

They have a bajillion bird houses at Tuesday Morning. They also have bird baths, cool colored drink tubs with stands, wind chimes, and various statues made out of some cheap material that was not stone.

Love the thermometer. And Vita-tops. Glad that they are now available in stores, although I will still order the Chocolate Pomegranate once Lent is over because that is my favorite.

I feel guilty that you take such good care of your teeth, yet still have trouble. I hope it all gets fixed SOON!

I have never tried the chocolate pomegranate Vita Tops but I really want to! I think I will have to place an order for those suckers. I have yet to see that particular flavor in the stores.

Sarah, I know you watch Hoarders, hahahahaha. Just kidding. What are Vita Tops or whatever? Honey yogurt sounds damn delicious though.

Vitatops are 100 calorie muffin tops thatcontains 15 vitamins & minerals, soy and oat. The same company makes muffins, brownies, and cakes. The honey yogurt is the best thing EVER! You must buy Fage 2% Honey.

I soooo watch hoarders. It's what made me realize that I hoard food-ha!

I wish I liked Fage - I've tried all of them and just can't. The Target FF yogurts are my favorite. I love the Boston Cream Pie.

Also fyi - the Archer Farms Chipotle Chicken Adobo dinners are to die for. I did all the math on the nutrition and they are a great option. Also the Amy's organic Margarita Pizza = YUM!

I'm also counting my calories, fat, sugar etc and am down 7 in 3 weeks! Yay! I've been using again and it's helped tremendously.

In your words. That is all.

The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
