No Costco Shopping - Again

1 comments.

Apr

I had a short day at work today (Friday). I came home around 4pm.

I drew up a shopping list - I was planning to go to Costco, Wal*Mart, ROSS,  Target, and Home Depot.

I enjoy shopping alone.  I weaseled out from a female friend who wanted to come shopping with me. Why ruin a perfect shopping night with a girl, I figured.  I guess I haven't met a true love.

I ate a light snack and took a nap before going out.  In my dream I shopped at a super Costco where toilet papers come in 70 rolls pack.

When I woke up it was 8:30pm - I slept for 4 hours.  Costco was closed!

So... no shopping, no girl.  :(

Costco Lunch - Salad

2 comments.

Apr

I had a lunch today (Thursday) at Costco with a super smart friend (A computer programmer who got his masters degree at 20).

I only eat hot dogs on weekend after Costco shopping (My weekend starts Friday 5pm).  As a matter of fact, I generally eat very healthy Monday to Friday. And I eat whatever I want on weekends.  I love KFC, steak, lobster, BBQ...  anything that's bad for human body.

I took below picture after I finished eating salad. 

I didn't eat croutons, and only ate 1/3 of salad dressing.  I even left out the cheese.  I don't really watch nutritional facts.  But I always use common sense when I eat.  My common logic tells me that it is better to avoid croutons and dressings.  I don't have to do a research to come to that conclusion.

I thought I share this little story to motivate some of you trying to lose weight. When it comes to losing weight, every bite counts.  You make 6 packs in the kitchen, not in the gym.  And, ladies, you will not get bulky if you workout, unless you take man hormon and do muscle building workout 8 hours a day for next 5 years. Most men don't get big from normal workout, either. We'll be happy if we look lean and cut.

Thank God there is a coupon for Q-Tips this month.  I was almost out of them tips.  What a timing...

One thing about Q-Tips.  It says not to use them on ear canal, but we (especially men) use them to clean nothing but ear canals.

Costco Executive Membership Reward

1 comments.

Jan
18

I received my annual Costco 2% executive membership reward check, amount of $96.36.  Costco's executive membership is $110/yr.  So, I pay $55/yr more than a regular membership.

With $96.36 check, my executive membership pays for itself and it pays $46.36 extra.  That's not all.  I have Costco/American Express membership.  I will receive about $160.00 cash back check from AmericanExpress as well.

And I live alone, AND I don't shop a lot (do I?).  If you have a big family, then your check must be huge. Surprised

So, as far as I am concerned, the evidence is clear.  Everybody should sign up for Costco executive membership (also American Express).  :)

Happy Costco Shopping~!

FYI: I received 2% rebate check of $96.36.  This means I spent $96.36 x 50 (= $4818.00) in Costco last year.  That seems a lot.

Sensible Dinner - Costco Style

4 comments.

Oct
03

I try to eat good Monday to Friday.  I use Vitamix three times a day.  Vitamix is perhaps the most valuable item I bought from Costco.  I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables because of Vitamix. If you care about your well being, please buy Vitamix and use it.

I always start my dinner with a tall glass of Vitamix juice.  Today's juice contained:

  • Apple (1/2)
  • Carrot (1)
  • Orange (1/2)
  • Tomato(1/2)

Remember, Vitamix is not a juicer.  There is no pulp to throw out.  You eat the entire fruits and vegetables.  With this juice, I am already half full that I don't feel like eating much more.

###

Today I grabbed some items I bought from Costco, and came up with a quick soup.  I used following Costco food items:

  • Healthy Choice chicken soup (1 can)
  • Crushed Tortilla Chips (a handful)
  • Egg whites (2) - No yolk (I love yolks, but they say yolks are bad)

I seasoned the soup with some green onions, salt, and pepper.

I don't usually eat dinner out of cans.  But I have no problem eating can food for dinner when I feel like it.

###

After dinner I ate some strawberries and grapes.

I feel pretty good about how I eat.  I can make quick dinner with staple items from Costco.  I always keep frozen vegetables, grilled chicken, fish, eggs, cans of tuna, & etc...  It's easy to make sensible dinner, fast... Costco style.

When it comes to cooking, a little creativity goes long way.  You better enjoy cooking if you live alone.  Or your bad diet can mess you up. And before you know it, you are in irreversible course to early death.

What I take for granted is that I buy these food items at one location at good price.   Without Costco, I cannot imagine myself shopping for frozen vegetables, fish, and etc.   I would check supermarket fliers and drive around the town.  It will consume my free time.  To me, Costco is the only way to go.

I try to tell them... I don't go to Costco to save money.  I go to Costco to enjoy higher class of life-style.  And Costco happens to save me money.   It's a win-win situation.

Later, I changed my mind and put 2 egg whites (no yolk)

Happy Sunday Morning - Costco Coffee & Christmas Cookies

Happy Sunday morning everyone.

I am enjoying my Sunday morning routine.  I love my Sunday coffee with Christmas cookies.  I drink Costco's Cubita Organic Coffee on weekend.

Costco sells these cookies only on Christmas season.  I bought 3 cans last year.  I still have a half of can left.  It's been 1 year already.

I shall buy 3 more cans next month.

I will not buy any more Chocolates of the World.  I still have 2 full jars left from last year.  I am officially sick of Chocolates of the world. Frown

OK, I'm getting ready for a pan cake breakfast.   I hope you guys will have a sweet nap today.

This is my first Halloween decoration ever.

I went to Wal*mart and bought a $1 jack-o-lantern bucket.

Inside the bucket, I put a solar powered lawn light I bought from Costco.  So the pumpkin lights up at dusk.

Happy Halloween.

Don't blink, 2012 will disappear before you know it.  Please slow down and have fun.
