workout sucked because my uterus feels like this:

I felt this so hard the other day... I almost made an open accountabillibuddies group for helping each other out and providing extra cheerleading during the week or so of menstrual woes, but I wasn't sure it would gain any traction.

 

Impressive job pushing forward!

Wow I didn't realize going frozen could save that much money.  My grocery expenses are too damn high, I must investigate.

When you buy frozen most of the excess water and waste (peels, stems, etc) are already removed. So when you look at the weight by pound, it is often cheaper than fresh. I try to pay attention to sales on fresh produce, and then buy frozen if there is nothing reasonable. This usually just happens in the winter because I'm in the midwest. 

 

Also, if you buy fresh, if you mix in cheaper veg with the more expensive stuff you can cut down costs. Things like onion, cabbage, carrot are always cheap. In the summer green beans are cheap too.

Here I thought you were talking about having the AC set at -71 and I could not figure out how that would save money.  DERP!

I always have broccoli, peas, and green beans on hand in the freezer.  I'll buy fresh for specific recipes, but most of my weekly eating is just cook up some veggies on the fly and nuke some leftovers.

Good job lifting despite biology's attempts to sabotage you.

HAHAHAH Yes this.

 

I was at the gym and I was like "I don't know if my abs are hurt or if I am hungry or if I have a stomach ache" and then I realized what's going on. Luckily it doesn't happen often, but when it does it's BAD and I get faint easily. Sucks.

Frozen are generally cheaper, yeah, but for me not a huge difference. I can get 5lbs of broccoli/carrots/cauliflower or broccoli for about $5 frozen. If I go to the birds eye steamfresh the price is $1.50 for 12oz, so not nearly as good, but they taste better. At that point, buying fresh would be cheaper in a lot of cases.

 

Fresh broccoli is usually anywhere from $1-2 a pound. Brussels sprouts are like $2/lb and asparagus can go up to $5/lb, so yeah - frozen is way cheaper. But for one person it's not a huge difference weekly. 

 

Peas I prefer frozen. So good.

Or grow your own.

 

I think guinea pigs are the unofficial theme here.

Guinea pigs are named "Meerschweinchen" (translated word by word "little sea pigs") in germany, now I know why: they flood your apartements with cuteness!

Yes. And rabbit shows. Rabbit shows and cavy shows are usually synced as one.
