Not too shabby. But the cravings for bread and chocolate are huge sometimes.
I was proud of myself for being "good" on my Florida vacation as well. And you know what? I had more energy this time. Normally I over-indulge in food and beverages on vacay and peter out early. I would become a SLOTH. Not this time.
My MIL was helpful too. She always asks ahead of time what food supplies we need. One thing I did request was a jar of peanut butter.
PEANUT BUTTER is a huge part of my daily life now (plus my five-year-old eats it too). I probably eat PB everyday with an apple or banana.
I usually eat SIMPLY JIF, which has a lower carb and sugar count (I hate the taste of the all-natural PB's).
Anyway, by accident, my MIL bought us WHIPPED PEANUT BUTTER (She only meant to get creamy).
Well HELLO whipped. I'm in love.
You have to understand-- it was like a delicacy to someone who is deprived of treats. It tasted like peanut butter flavored whipped cream. Plus, b/c it's whipped, it had lower carbs and calories. I ate it all week long.
Fast Forward to the present.
Post- vacation, I went to FOUR DIFFERENT GROCERY STORES (including Target) to find that DAMN PB and NO ONE sold it.
No one, I tell you. *sniff*
People, I live in a major metropolitan city. Cleveland may not be a Chicago or New York City but we have a large population, major sports teams, park systems, theatres, one of the top hospitals in the nation (The Cleveland Clinic).
SO WHY IS IT THAT I CANNOT FIND MY FLIPPIN' PEANUT BUTTER HERE?????????
So there you have it.
I'm depressed over PEANUT BUTTER.
*What I am hoping happens is, one of my local bloggy friends will tell me to get a life because they have the damn stuff in a store near them.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
Update: I told you it would happen. My niece, who is way cooler and smarter than me, found out where I can get it here. Out of my way, everyone :-)
