Lazy days, let’s talk about ’em

I’ve done tons of posts about the importance of pampering yourself, of spending time alone, and of taking time off the grind.  Missed ’em? Don’t worry, I got you!

I Hit A Mental Wall, Here Is How I Got Over It

Taking a Break: How & Why You Should

And, to be completely transparent with you, I have neglected that over the past few months.  I got caught up in being in a new city, with new people,  a new job, and with a new outlook on social media/life (peep the new IG@colbylivesfit)  While it was an incredible summer and I have been changed two-fold for the better (post to come about that soon) there was one point I can distinctly remember of which not taking time for myself and being alone caught up to me.

Flash to about 3 weeks ago …  I was hit with a horrible migraine–  my body’s way of telling  me

Hey girl, take a chill pill!

It’s not that I was running around with my head cut off, I was doing everything that made me beam, but I hadn’t slowed down, and I needed to … we all need to.

So, unplug and self love night commenced.

Enter:  Peapod — yes, I started with getting my groceries delivered.

The delivery has arrived!

In reality, it is so stressful to get groceries in the city.  First you have to walk 5 bags a mile home as a farmers carry.  Then, proceed to carry them up 7 flights of stairs because ya girl has a vestibular disorder and cannot ride elevators.  So, getting them delivered on my unplugged night was a no-brainer.

Now, to Peapod! Peapod is a  dope grocery delivery service that essentially is equivalent to shopping at the store, they just do it for you.  And then, they deliver them promptly to your doorstep.  As a major bonus, Peapod offers 60 days of free delivery to new customers.

  3. Sort features
  4. Fresh  produce
  5. Door to door  (<– my favorite)

Grocery haul:

As I was typing this, I realized that I often share recipes with you on Facebook, but I have never shared my weekly summer grocery haul, so get pumped:

Ground turkey, chicken, bananas, plantains, eggs,  egg whites, carrots, letttuce, canned tomatoes, nut butter, figs, kombucha, fruit juice (for smoothies), avocados, random bars to try.

I am crossing my fingers that Peapod delivers to Ithaca this school year– made my life so easy. And,  if you are interested, feel free to use the service finder here, and sign up so you can get your first 60-days of free delivery, plus $20 off your first order.

More of the haul

In this haul, un-pictured because I don’t buy them weekly, was also Minute Maid® Lemonade and  FUZE® tea which I was getting for a fun, refreshing beach drank with my girls.  Must also mention how pumped I was to not have to carry 2 12-packs of cans home from the store, especially with those heavy vegetables 😀

Fruit-y half & half recipe:
