confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

time to clean out the cupboards

on September 27, 2012

anyone ever take on this daunting task? well…i’m about to this weekend. turns out, my bank account is having a personal day, which means i don’t have enough money to go grocery shopping this week. solution? clean out the cupboards and see what’s been lurking in the dark for all these weeks!! i figure i’ll be able to find at least enough food to hold me over until next pay day! maybe…..

i don’t know about the rest of you, but i tend to be a food hoarder. I usually will grocery shop for the week and get only what i need, but sometimes plans happen, or things come up and not all of the food gets used. thus, it gets shoved to the backs of my cupboards until they overflow with random goodies. right now it’s looking like pancakes are going to the superstar of the next week and a half since i have 2 boxes of mix (honestly…how does one acquire 2 boxes of pancake mix?!) i’ve also got some green beans, and what looks like shredded coconut….time to get creative i guess!!

on another cool fitness note, i’ve come into a couple of awesome opportunities in the past few days! come october 14th i’m going to become a certified R.I.P.P.E.D. instructor! don’t know what it is? google it! essentially it’s a full body exercise program consisting of high intensity cardio, plyometrics, and resistance training all smushed together to give you a crazy workout that should show amazing results. i’m a little afraid of the training since it looks a little intense, but i’m doing it with all of the other instructors at FitClub so at least it’ll be a blast!! i was also just contacted by a friend offering up a free trial for CrossFit in colchester (my home town, ctown what what!!) i’ve always wanted to try it, so now i have an opportunity!! we’ll see how it goes!! if anyone has any tips or wise pieces of advice for a soon to be crossfit newbie, it would be much appreciated!!
