For weeks, I’ve had a $2 off coupon for my favorite tinted moisturizer which I use nearly every day, Neutrogena Healthy Defense tinted moisturizer. I love it for so many reasons, some of which are:

  1. It has 30 SPF in it, so it covers sun protection on my face.
  2. I use it in place of a foundation and it does a great job of evening out my skin tone.
  3. My skin loves it!

In the last couple weeks, I’ve visited no fewer than 8 different CVS and Walgreens stores looking for it, but they were sold out at each and every location! While I was in Porter Square this morning, I decided to give my search on last go at the CVS below the gym. Ahoy! I finally found it!!! With only 4 days before the coupon expired!!!

I had a great morning at Healthworks, with some ellipticalling and body pumping. I’m totally addicted to this class. I feel so badass when I do it, both during and after when I flex my muscles! On my way home from the gym, I was feeling pretty peckish and snacked on some green grapes I picked up this morning.

A decaf iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts, to make up for the lack of ice in my coffee this morning. I always ask for just a bit of ice (more coffee this way!) and toasted almond and coconut flavor shots.

For lunch, I wanted to use up the leftover Israeli salad I’d made earlier this week. I bulked it up with some quinoa (leftover from the other day, too), chopped red bell pepper, lentils, feta crumbles and a bit of dijon mustard for flava.

We had a picnic in our backyard! I’m loving this end of summer weather. In case you’re curious, Dave’s lunch consisted of my leftovers from three different meals: last night’s sandwich, the half a burger I didn’t eat on Thursday, and sweet potato fries from yesterday.

Grapes and cherries for dessert. We shared this small bowl.

Off to do some grocery shopping!
