Shop Til I Drop

We were back to the gym bright and early yesterday morning.  Like I said, I’m really loving my early morning workouts.  We did Nike Training Club app again.  Seriously you have to download it – so GOOD!

Whenever I get home from the gym in the morning I am a ravenous beast.  Here was yesterday’s breakfast number two:

It was a bowl of greek yogurt, raw oats, walnuts, and blueberries.

I spent the rest of morning and afternoon on campus doing some serious homework.

I came home from campus half an hour early to start dinner.  We were having lentil stew but first Brad wanted me to meet him to go shopping.

Want to know a not-so-much-of-a-secret?

I hate shopping.

Oh it’s horrible.

I don’t like shopping for me, for anyone else.  Oh no wait, I do like Christmas shopping sometimes but mostly because it allows me to enjoy the festive season thoroughly.  Okay back to regular shopping – HORRIBLE.

Luckily we were not shopping for me last night, it was for Brad.  He needed some work clothes.  I watched him try on many a garments.  Then when he had his “maybe” pile I watched him try them on again.  Finally he selected the shirts he wanted and we could move on to the important part of shopping.  It was time for a break, I always bring snacks.

By the time we were finished all the shopping I was exhausted and starving.  I had never been so happy to come home to a full pot of lentil stew and a baguette. MMMmmmmmm :)

Are you a shopaholic … or are you mildly allergic to it like I am?

  1. *gasp* I can’t imagine not liking shopping…My husband would love it if that ever happened ;-)

  2. I hate it too. Clothes shopping in particular. My frame is NOT what designers had in mind when creating clothing. Plus I loathe malls. So I’m with you.

    I do enjoy shopping at the health food store or fruit/veggie stands with my son, since he gets to pick out healthy stuff. Beyond that, no thanks.

      I love malls, I worked in retail for many years so I love being at the mall, seeing everything shiny, taking in the merchandising, etc.

      but trying on clothes is true torture

      I totally agree with you re: the health food store, I could wander it for hours

    I don’t like shopping either. Sometimes I forget that I don’t like it. I head to the mall all chipper and excited, but within 30 minutes I’m frustrated, angry, and ready to leave.

    Yes – holiday shopping is an exception. I think the Christmas music helps!

  4. I’m not a fan of shopping for clothes either. Food, techie toys, books? Anytime!
    I don’t exactly look like a model, so it’s hard to find clothes that look good on me and fit my budget. That can be quite frustrating.

  5. I have become an online window shopper. I have gotten into the habit of going on to an ecommerce site, filling a shopping cart with dream items, and then just shutting down the window. All the joys of shopping, minus the getting anything, plus the privacy of your own home!

    My attitude to shopping is… love it when I have the money to spend on what I want. Hate it when I don’t. And while I can shop for a good long while, I really only last a few hours before I start getting grumpy. ;)

  7. I love shopping if I’m in the mood but get SUPER exhausted and crabby if I have other things to do in the day or am pressured to find one thing (like jeans UGH).

    I do love grocery shopping though. It’s one of my favorite pass times. hehe

  8. Oooh, my husband loves to shop. Although I don’t mind it, I am in and out faster than you can blink. Ha!

    I LOVE shopping. I always end up finding awesome deals :) Love your breakfast, one of my faves to have in the A.M. I’ve been having blackberries lately…so good :)

  10. Haha my boyfriend is the sort of guy who firstly practically never buys clothes, and then when he absolutely has to, he just goes in a grabs things then is out again!

    I never know how I feel about shopping, sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. I think it depends how much money I have ;-) I’ve started shopping mostly online now :-P

    Your breakfast looks delicious!
