Weigh-In Wednesday

Uhhhhh....yeah, let's not. Lots going on...only worked out two days...did not eat "healthy", even in the broadest sense of the term. Hopefully, once I get over the stress and anxiety and my world stops spinning, I will be able to recommit to this goal of getting fit. Here's hoping....

Weigh-In Wednesday

I am following the lead of a friend of mine...Weigh-In Wednesday. But, I will not be revealing actual numbers because, as we all know, that is just too dang depressing! I will, however, disclose pounds/inches lost. I don't have anything to report, as I just started Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred yesterday. But, I did record my measurements and weight, and I look forward to seeing those numbers drop! Anyone else want to join in on this journey? Post up!

I Love Coupons!!

This past Wednesday, I did my first couponing trip to Wal-Mart. As I matched my coupons to the products and put them in my basket, I got very excited. When I was walking toward the checkout, I was so giddy and couldn't help but smile...I was so excited to see what the total would be!

I got 3 tubes of toothpaste, 4 travel first aid kits, 2 bottles of heartburn chewables, 4 containers of Greek yogurt, 3 packages of Japanese noodles, and 2 packs of dental floss.

Grand total: $3.24 !!!!!!

I was smiling from ear to ear! I also had to buy some socks for Adam, and the cashier said, "What? No coupon for the socks?!" I just laughed.

I can't wait to see what other deals I can find!

So Much For NaBloPoMo...

Obviously, I didn't make it all 30 days. You go out of town for a few days, and everything falls apart. Oh well, maybe next year! We have been pretty busy lately, which is to be expected this time of year. We picked out our Christmas tree and decorated it--pictures to come (once I re-decorate the tree). We wrote Daniel's letter to Santa, in which he asked for a train, a bike, and "some other toys". For now, here are some recent pictures.
