I am actually looking forward to tomorrow, February 1st. Why? Because then I will not be broke. I can then get my bills sorted and out of the way so I can use the remainder of my funds for food shopping and purchasing at least one other fitness item to help me with my goals. I would very much like to have dumbbells again, haven't had a set since 2008! Could really use it as my arm strength is not what it was back then. And back then I was not only using the dumbbells, but was also bowling in a weekly league.
So, I'm gonna knock it out of the park tonight by getting as much as I can points wise. See y'all next month!

I'm hoping that things will be better for me in the coming months, especially with regards to my health. I had a full hysterectomy in November, so I no longer have that as a "issue". Do still have to work on my high blood pressure and the diabetes.
I know I've been away for a while, but now I'm itching to get back on track and lose the 40-45 pounds I need to lose. That's just one of my Resolutions & Goals for the year. I also want to get more exercise and work on being more organized. I'm hoping that old and new friends here will help me keep on the "straight and narrow".

Well, I got back from the store not too long ago. I think I did fairly well or at least better than I have in recent months. I focused more on checking the labels, concentrating on sodium and sugar counts. With my high BP and diabetes, I gotta watch those now. :-(
Some of what I picked up I hadn't had in a while. Like rice cakes, total cereal, lightly salted chips, OR smart pop popcorn and egg beaters. Other items I've never had and am hoping that I like them. Like Fiber One Frosted Shredded Wheat, and High Fiber Oatmeal. I also picked up an old fave, Cheerios. I like a variety with my cereals. ;-)
And I also managed to save myself almost 20 bucks on my bill! Which does help on my fixed income. In the past I've only taken advantage of the store discounts/sales. Today I actually used coupons which I haven't done in a long while! I need to get back to doing that.
So, all in all, I think I did pretty well @ the store. I'll be going to another store this weekend to pick up other items I know I can find cheaper, such as the koolaid on the go packs and to also look for a Pur water filter pitcher. I've tried the Brita in the past, never was impressed, so I'm gonna see if the Pur is better. Also, can get my pet's food cheaper at other place. ;-)
